I still think those wheels look right at home on your car. Nice pictures brother.
Thanks man! They've grown on me but I'm still secretly salivating for some fancy billet wheels one day. Should have paid closer attention to wall street bets, LMAO

Thin blade screwdriver to engage the door lock pin rod and lift is all you need.

IIRC, aboit 10 years ago it was a common topic to remove those rods due to how easy it was to open a door

Got it all cleaned up after the road trip. It was pretty filthy.

I'm surprised this the first you guys are hearing of this. This was all over the forums maybe 10 years ago. Everyone was pulling their door pop rods.

Never seen that on a mustang, there is a car (been so long I can't remember) that had an access hole in the door mirror to unlock the car.

I have not cared, mine stays locked in the garage, and if I were to leave it unattended for any length of time in public, I would simply pull the rotor from under the distributor and the car is going no where under it's own power and it's highly unlikely a thief would troubleshoot it.
