Re: My 98 Cobra... Major Changes Soon - Opinions wanted **DUW**

I'm not referring anything because I don't like your car at all.

But, it's your money, and your car.

Thumbs up on wanting to supercharge it... I'd do that first though.

Re: My 98 Cobra... Major Changes Soon - Opinions wanted **DUW**

I Like it. The body kit it I'd love to have, especially the front bumper. The vert doors look good. The red wheel..hum I'm trying to figure out why i lik'em so much...i guess because their different....The interior is nice, the all red seats are to much for my taste....I want that JL W7 along with the other audio goodies..

..Overall i really like it, as many mustangs as there are on the road yours would definitely stand out. Just make sure you have a fire breathing monster under that hood so when you represent us you do i strong. Good Job :thumb:.

I think it will look really good. You're car was really well put together. Even though it may have disliked by some, what you did worked together. I think that it will look very cool and different.

The red wheels are being replaced with the 20" Deep Dish Black Bullitts, the red seats are already sold and I have new ones in my garage as mentioned...

Thank you... I appreciate people who are willing to step out of the "norm" of modding and like other stuff ;)

I liked it in the red and white..very unique. Not a fan of the spoiler, I prefer the one you have now. S281 is the shit.

Re: My 98 Cobra... Major Changes Soon - Opinions wanted **DUW**

Personally i think you car looks pretty awesome. Not quite the lengths that i would go, but there is a huge amount of time and money spent on your car and it looks nice.

The paint scheme, are you gonna go black and blue just like that truck?
If so i think it will look :behind: :rockyou: awesome!!
That color blue with black will be way bad.

Also, i like how your vert doors actually go VERTICAL, and not kinda sideways like others. Very nice.

My only suggestion would be get the W7 capeted all the way! :hammer:
That sub is too bad ass to be in a half carpeted box.

Nice car man!! :banana:

Hey, that looks better,
I posted on your thread in SVTP.

I like the wheels.

What rear cover are you going with?
