Looks great - love how it matches your truck. Where do I get the roll bars?Here are a few upgrades that I have done to my 2005 T Bird-
Cross drilled rotors with ceramic brakes and brakes covers
After market 5 spoke chrome rims GWG 17 inch
High speed radial tires
Borla exhaust - a must-have.
Front nose bra
Convertible top finish cover
Chrome trim for hood scoop
I was JUST about to change out my '04 speakers when Mr. Covid hit. I had planned to have Crutchfield replace the speakers. Still plan to do it but gotta wait till the guv says I can. Sigh. At first I was going to spring for some expensive ones but Crutchfield said that I could get good sound for under a hundred bucks (for two). He did say that the tweeters, between the console were unnecessary. I just don't want to mess with changing the speakers myself, especially the back ones.Well, I've changed my mind concerning my stereo radio search. After doing a little more research, specifically in my owners manual, I found that my "Audiophile" radio is equipped to handle satellite radio service. So I decided to forgo my Kenwood choice and just opt for the Sirius XM Tuner package. My question to those of you who have done this XM switchover is this. Did you also change out your three speakers? I couldn't find any U Tube help on removing 2005 Thunderbird speakers so I went ahead and ordered an original shop manual from EBay. This alone could save me about $200 in labor expenses. I'll keep you posted as to how it turns out. Please let me know if you have any information on the "speaker" issue. Thanks
Our club CCT (Coastal Carolina Thunderbirds) toured New Bern for T Bird Appreciation Day on Sunday.I've seen these threads on many other forums I'm apart of. Don't know if it would be as active here, but figured I would start the thread. If there is already one going, let me know.
So, what did you do to your Tbird today?
I'll start. Put the hardtop on it Sunday since we've got a week of mid 80's. Drove it to work yesterday and today. I must say, I enjoy this car so much. It's an awesome ride that gets tons of looks and is an awesome cruiser.
I did ours about two weeks ago. It’s usually myself, my wife, and one of my daughters doing mine.. We put a blanket over the trunk for added safety, and it’s me on one side, my wife on the other, and my diughter over the back / trunk.. The three of us works out great.. Taking the top off is so much easier than putting it on.. Sometime it’s tough lining up the rear pegs into the holes.. That third set of hands and eyes are so handy trying to line them up..
