Next morning I decided to go through the car a bit..

Yup, no paint on the rear axle.. Spray some water up there, hopefully the rust will color it in shortly..

Fit n finish: Well, it looks pretty good.. Iím not to sure about the floppy plastic parts , especially the front chin spoiler/rear valance..
IMO we could use a brace or two there..

Tape mark: checkÖ

Under the hood: OK, so we save .01295 ozís and 12 cents by not painting the valve covers.. Stupid, just stupid..

Not painting the power steering pump is even worse. Ford is clueless about where to save a nickel.. Easily visible components are the wrong place to chintz out..

Passenger side front strut hasnít rusted anymore than the day I got it. Maybe itís that weird steel they use in artwork, you know, it only rusts so much, then the patina stops further rust..

Dash nice and straight. Panels lined up well, gaps even all around.

Canít say the same about the panel under the side windows..

Door panels tight, rattle fee..

Front speakers have the industrial/military look to them.. A bit much, but the sound over-rides the looks..


Mixed thoughts on the shifter.. Realizing it is where it is to keep the throw short, you must also realize it really interferes with the cupholder.. Yeah yeah, I know, but Dunkin Doughnuts coffee accompanies me most everywhere, and I hate knocking the top off with my elbow..

If I could keep the short throw, Iíd move the shifter back where I could grab it with my arm on the arm rest, and move the coffee forward of it..

Speaking of floppy, am I the only one who notices that you can no longer see the gap between the hood and the drivers side fender above 95?

Iím thinking I might have to invest in hood pins..

Needs another coat of waxÖ

May as well offer a rear seat delete option.. Iíd LOVE to see the rear done along the style of the 69/70 AMX..

Still no sign of the spare keysÖ

good reading Scott, be warned however that if you hit 100mph in S. FL and cop pulls you over, your car is impounded- along with your ticket.

Been awhile. Bullitt still here and still loved. Went through the hood issue, new hood on it, no major changes other than GT500 wheels and tires. Theres a Boss in the family, LOVE this ride to. Rumored 2015 Bullitt.. Hmm, yeah no..


Still haven't found spare keys. Car needs fuel frequently for some reason, evaporation?

The other Scott,

Man I can't believe it's you on here.

I often wonder where some of the members have gone.

So you have a Boss and it's looking good.

And you still have retained the Bullitt Mustang, cool !!!

Anyway from me to you, Welcome back and don't be a stranger.

Oh, and I forgot: The Hurst shifter was a HUGE improvement that I wouldn't have done without reading about it here. HUGE! Other than that, bone stock with 38k miles

How does the Bullitt compare with the Boss?

I'm sure the difference in power is significant, but I'm curious about the handling since you used to read so much about the Boss....

Damn, been this long since I updated this? Lets see, Boss has 4300 miles on it, Bullitt 48k. New front Koni's on the Bullitt, currently at Ford for airbag recall. Hopefully the new airbag has the Bullitt logo, anyone know? Boss came back with new cover..

Bullitt retired now from daily driving I guess. Debating, autocross vehicle or? First project is new door panels, they are toast at this stage. Going to talk to a local shop about custom panels, 1800 bucks from mother Ford for something that is going to do the same crap sounds like the definition of insanity..

I remember you posting but it seems like so many years ago.

Nice to see you are still around and still have the Bullitt.

Welcome back.
