    I traded for this car and it was in rough shape so i decided to get her looking good and then do a tune up on it. Not really intrested in big power as i have a sportbike if i want speed.

    Hope you like..

    Moved to members rides, had nothing to do with an engine.

    You're going to have to remove the badges to fix it?

    Not really my taste, but if you like it that's all that matters

    I'd take it back to the body shop and tell them to fix it. Honestly with that new paint I'd be weary of removing them because if the paint hasn't cured completely then you'll have some serious problems.

    Not a bad look, but I'd change the taillights back to stock, headlights to a 2 piece (smoked would prob be best), and remove the front windshield tint. Is the whole front windshield tinted, with the top half blacked out?

    i think it looks pretty good but the side skirts don't match up to me. otherwise once you get it lowered i think it will look even better.

    First off, great job breathing some new life into an SN.

    Now, it needs more low. And, I would remove the spoiler. I hate spoilers, though, so don't listen to me if you like it on there.

    Othrr than its monster truck stance and the picnic bench spoiler, you have a great looking stang. Keep it up. And keep us posted.

    Nice job, it will continuously change as long as you keep it we can't stop ourselves.

    yeah agree a lowering is in the plans just not to low to where the front hits, but need to get her running tip top first.. I like the spoiler though, really like the cobra r look. So anyone recommend a good lowering kit.

    My car has a low front lip too so I would recommend just getting some mach 1 springs or FMS C' springs I think they are. Anyway mine are used off a mach 1 and dropped it about an inch. Anymore and I would be repairing my front lip every weekend. Good news is I got my used mach 1 springs off ebay for $40. I put new tokico struts and shocks on at the same time though so about $300 with my labor.
