I've been busy....

Got several body parts painted: My local bodyshop (and Daniel) have been busy

Did the back-up cam and then installed SRT-8 sway bars front and back. Front was easy but i swore at that back end for 3 1/2 hours before finishing-but i'm going to have to look at it again in the summer. Some of the bolts are tight but the sway bar brackets aren't completely tight against the axle. Being i can't get my truck into my garage (the Mustang is in there for winter storage) I'll pull it all apart this summer and run a tap down the threads of the bolt holes and really lube up the bushings so it all goes back nicely together. One thing-i couldn't use the new front bushings because they have a ridge molded into them that the brackets didn't have. I was able to reuse my stock ones just fine-the SRT sway bar was only a 1/16" bigger. Can't give any driving impressions yet, we got 40cm of new snow that day and the roads aren't good enough yet to drive fast enough to test,but it does seem a bit tighter up front.
