89 LX to GT body kits

I'm in the process of getting a 1989 Mustang LX 5.0. What do I need to put a GT body kit onto the car? How involved is it?

I think your best bet would be to find one at a junkyard and take the bumpers and side skirts, but personally, I think LXs look way better than GTs

There are quite a bit of parts you'll need. The worst thing is you will need the side mouldings that run down the side of the car because they are bigger on the GTs. Good luck on finding a set of them that aren't warped.

Re: 89 LX to GT body kits

I recently had to restore the gt body kit on my 91. You need the ground effects rocker panels pieces, infront of and behind the rear wheel pieces, infront of the front wheel pieces, the gt bumper covers (front and back), the nessesary mounting brackets for each piece, different size nuts to accomidate the pieces in holding them together and onto the car, rivets to hold the bracket pieces and front gt bumper, and I think thats it. The best way to get all the brackets is from a junkyard or from pple selling bracket sets on ebay. There is a set or two being sold on there now in fact. If you want fog lights in the front bumper you'll have to buy the brackets and fog light bar as well. along with the fog lights, obviously. um...I don't think im missing anything...

Re: 89 LX to GT body kits

I think the best look is the gt front and side skirts and the lx rear bumper, that way you can see the dual chrome exhaust!!!!

But that is just what i think!
