i like it. dunno about the cobra logos on a non cobra tho.
Once the body work and new paint happen, that will be gone. I am going to have the bumper shaved and I have the original Mach 1 emblem for the trunk.

Part of me wants to have "MUSTANG" painted onto the rear bumper but I feel like that may look cheesy.

I’d love an 03-04 Cobra rear that had”MUSTANG” embossed instead of Cobra. I stared at the contours of the GT/Mach 1 bumper in hopes the “MUSTANG” could but cut out and grafted in place of “COBRA” but no such luck.

Well, I made another purchase for the car that was going to wait for a bit. Made sense to suck up the purchase now.

I will keep this a secret for now.

I can start making some progress on the Mach 1 and start saying goodbye to the VW Golf lifestyle.

Received five cans of spray paint today. The weekend weather forecast looks good. I can start removing the factory sound material and carpet, sand, clean, prep, and paint the interior metal. Then I will put down new sound material and carpet. I will also be fixing wiring issues, installing the new audio setup, wiring up the rear view camera, installing the MS3PNP, and maybe installing the new fuel system.

The car will no longer be the original Torch Red, the whatever wrap Red, the Taxi Cab Yellow of the bumpers, or Silver of the trunk lid.

Here is a little hint of what is to come for Project Bad Mach.

sounds very good
now a solid paint job and it is good to go
Not even close!

Putting together a new engine setup, currently waiting on two parts to be shipped for it. Probably going to install ID1000s and MS3PNP this weekend. Gotta wire shit up, blah blah blah. Lol
