Thanks for the comprehensive report. So glad to see that you are still in the GT family. Looks good already and we await further mods . You have the same color as my 2014 GT. What year is yours?

I trust you immediately related this fact to your missus along with the suggestion that, if you drove it more often, the family finances would benefit from fewer fill-ups...... :)
