    So, what do you guys think of the new direction for my car? After the car is painted, the motor will be all chromed and supercharged to finished off the project...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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:

    Re: My 98 Cobra... Major Changes Soon - **DUW** UPDATES PICTURES ON POST #13!!!!!

    i like the way it looks now, but for a show car i think the way it was before would really make it stand out.

    i really like that hood, is it the one from abc? whats the rise on it?

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

    I like the wheels.

    What rear cover are you going with?
