Nice, I like it... nothing looks as smooth as a coupe when it comes to the fox bodies. Im not a huge fan of the rims but they look pretty good. How does the trim and black painted areas holding up? They tend to go fast on fox bodies.

Thanks, the wheels haven't been a crowd pleaser...so many people envision the coupes a certain way...I said no to welds and ponies!

They're in much better shape than one would expect, but the car was in storage for 5 years...they DO need replaced, IMO they are the exteriors weakest link (to include the sunroof).

I dont like welds or ponys on fox bodies my self. My friends 90lx had 03 cobras and a 5 lug conversion of course. It looks VERY nice. then just put some 13 inch cobra brakes and you will have it finished

Is the car converted to 5 lug? If not its pretty easy just get the spindles from a 94-95 gt (only) and replace the ball joint else the car will sit a little higher in the front.

I posted pictures of his car in the show and tell. Search for the user bbunt302 for his pictures. He has pbr 99 up mustang brakes instead of cobra brakes.

Donno if I will do a conversion to 5 lug or not. Hell, my original plans were to not do a thing to this as it is my daily driver (the cobra is garage queen).

I bought the car stock -- flew to Florida from SanAntonio in Jan to buy it from a long time friend....since then I've done the following...

Complete tune...front to rear including shocks/struts and new AC
headers
H pipe
2 chamb flows
Tri ax
S-Trim (v1 -- LOUD)
Wheels
paint
hood
MSD
mass air
lights
3 core radiator and some other smaller stuffs

Going on are new tail pipes and possiibly louder mufflers

5 lug works GREAT on fox bodies, then you can get some NICE rims lol. The conversion is cheap and the rims are cheap.... I would definatly do it if I was you.
