Thumbs up Car's in the shop!

Just a little update on the car... I was recently in a wreck that was not my fault. It demolishes my drivers side fender and headlight. The front bumper cover was also bent and the door was dented as well. Anyways, the guy that hit me did have insurance so the car is in the shop now getting everything repaired. Since I would need a new fornt bumper anyways, my parents decided to get me what I wanted... and really before long that transpired into a lot more new stuff! Turns out they're gonna getting me the following list of items for a "graduation present" So I'm really happy to say that my car will be looking good very soon. Everything has been ordered except the suspension kit. In which I'm still trying to decide what I need, and what would look best for about a $600 budget. Anyways, here's the list:

1. Cobra R hood (2inch cowl) -abcexclusive.com
2. Cobra front bumper cover w/ abc front spoiler -abcexclusive.com
3. smoked headlights and corners -blueovalindustries.com
4. smoked fog lights (complete) -blueovalindustries.com
5. 10th anniversary cobra wheels -classified
6. 1in wheel spacers -Ebay
7. suspension kit including steeda sport springs, stangsuspension CC plates, offset rack bushings, and isolators -stangsuspension.com (pending) Do I need to get shocks/struts too??

Before Wreck


Wrecked


I'll certainly post some pics of the improved version soon.

Re: Car's in the shop!

I'd def. get the shocks and struts as the install is the same process as the springs are and the lower ride height will no doubt wear out your stock ones in no time.

Re: Car's in the shop!

I'd say a PI motor with stock hood, fender, and headlights would have been better. My .02

Yeah man, I would have but my parents didnt want me to change the rear bumper for some reason. Oh well, the side skirts dont look all that different from stock.

I think the 10th annis are gonna look awesome. Especially w/ the spacers and suspension. Speaking of which, I should be getting H&R sport springs, MM caster/camber plates, and tokiko blues tomorrow! Should set me back about $1000 including install. Too bad I dont have time to do so myself.

The rear is an add-on.
