How is this a Ruby Red resurrection? I’ve brought this 2015 Sho Back from the brink. Bought it as salvage, with 92k miles. It’s an extra car, so it can sit when bad stuff happens. I plan on mildly modding it to get it a little faster... not sure how far I’ll push this one. It Needed a front end essentially, minus the drivers fender. Bags did not deploy though. I’m back in an SHO after a multi year hiatus from the platform. I had a 2011 SHO with PP back from 2013-15. Sold that to get an F-150. I had some goodies for the 11 that I never sold... I also never got any performance mods done other than a tune back then. I bought some of the first down pipes but never got them installed is one example... I also still have a Kona Blue mobsteel, (I pulled it when I sold the car...) aka tommy z grille laying around Built for a non-acc 2010-2012 Taurus... that look inspired the grille setup I have in this one. Im not making the same mistakes on this one with waiting on mods... Performance mods are happening already... The eco-power parts 2015 down pipes are installed now, and a Gearhead intercooler was the replacement for the stock unit that was damaged. A cold air intake will go in soon... I know there are minimal if any performance gains, but I like the sound much better with the car. I have new plugs on order, msd coils ready to be installed, 3 bar map, and a tune will be loaded in a couple days/weeks when the plugs arrive. Other minor mods ... I have already upgraded sync 2 to sync 3.... Sync 2 can suck it! and of course the typical forscan mods are done... mainly the double honk elimination.... Also... I’m not a professional anything except desk jockey. I do this stuff for fun, and aim for semi professional results on an amateur budget. Some stuff will be kind of [email protected]$$ed....like some of my paint work for example.... I know it’s not 100% perfect, but I’m ok with it. Don’t give me too much grief... ha ha ha... Let me know what you guys think. Any suggestions on future mods? Fluid changes are on the list... I’ve only had this running for about a week. The major things I do have done professionally, like the frame work, and paint. How it started... never mind all the crap in the garage... Test fitting some panels and headlights before going to the frame rack for professional straightening. Got it back from paint... had to put the radiator, Gearhead intercooler, condenser, etc in... I had some chrome deleted and other bits painted to match while it was being painted. semi finished product as far as reassembly goes... a few bits yet to put in, but closer to how it will look. And yes.... I’m going to pull the bumper cover, and paint the condenser black. The silver look on the condenser sucks in my opinion. It should be dark and hidden on this car... and the SHO badges and chrome lower grill strip are being painted gloss black before I reinstall. Scuffed the badges and chrome trim(plus some extra bits in ingot silver for a 2010 MKS EcoBoost project...) Primed above, and paint code UX below, after 2 stage clear (2K gloss clear) Gloss black sho emblem, and lower bumper chrome, painted. Future mods also will be vinyl wrapping the door trim in gloss black, tinting the windows, and some other minor stuff.... I’ll update as I do some stuff.
