Well you got the "WOW" impression from me, but not the kind you want....

But I guess the kiddo's will like it, but a true Mustang lover will probably get a good laugh like I did.

But thats my opinion. Everyone has their own taste, but if your gonna post it on the boards you have to take the good with the bad..... thats life!

I understand that and believe me, I have had people say worse things about my car than you did, but it doesn't matter much to me. I love my car ;D

Im not dissin' anyone, I personally just don't dig the car.
Everyone has their own opinion and if you like something do and who cares what other people think.
And Dawssvt likes it and thats all that matters.

And wnracing Im 35, so Im not that old. Im just old school and have owned sevreal Mustangs over the years. I like the muscle car look more the fast and the furious look.

And to Dawssvt, good luck with your project and I hope it turns out the way you want it.... O0

Re: My 98 Cobra **DUW** UPDATES POST #80! - Air Ride Installed!

Here are some pictures from the process of my car getting painted. All the holes are filled (3rd brake light, trunk Ford emblem, un-needed trunk holes, and antenna). He just finished laying down the Impulse Blue paint. Next weekend he will spray the clear and the ghost flames. I am sorry for the bad pics, they were taken from a cell phone.

This first picture shows the color the best, the others are pretty dark...

This is what the color should look like when it's all done. This is Impulse Blue on an 05 GTO

Re: My 98 Cobra **DUW** UPDATES POST #109! 1st Stage of Paint Done!

Looks like a great color. Why didn't they pull the mptpr, trunk, doors etc. off the car?

Well, the doors are welded on because of the lambos. He got everything without taking that stuff off, so I guess he felt like he didn't need to :dunno:

Just seems odd that he removed the c pillars but not the hood or trunk.
Also, the doors are WELDED on? The doors don't bolt to the Lambo kit?

Yes, the kit I have requires the door to be welded onto the hinge. This is the only way to get the true 90 degrees.

He sprayed the prop rod too?
i'd be worried about the hinges for the hood and trunk. When you close them, I think yer gonna see some white in there.
Not trying to mess with you bro. I just don't want to see you get screwed!

I've always liked your car bro, especially when it had the red rims and decals/paint, that shit was hot.

This is my fave pic of your car ever:

He might have taken them off to get sprayed then put them back on, I really don't know. The car is in a town 2 hours away, so I haven't even seen it. This guy does great work (you should see his 66 Impala), so I trust him O0 O0
