Need Opinions

i'm pretty sure everyone on here already knows my obsession with roush mustangs. well finally i'm getting some work done, appearance and performance wise. anyway, i really want the 440a look, cept it has the side stripes that say "440a" (which stands for 400 hp + 40th anniversary, just in case you didn't know )

anyway, i was thinking of doing the same thing but making it say "40A" for 40th anniversary. any thoughts on this?

also, which of the following two looks better? with stripes or without?



or

Re: Need Opinions

Since roush is the only option here...no stripes. If you do stripes, leave the 440 of because that is definitely posing.

mine would say "40a" not "440a", just as an idea, i don't want it to say roush anywhere on the car or have false badges, but it is a 40th anniversary thats why i thought that.

No stripes.

That Stage 2 looks much better than the 440A IMO.

Re: Need Opinions

i just think that on the 99-04 mustangs you don't see them with stripes and I like the accent.. your already being different by putting on body kit parts and what not, so why not make it even more distinct... its your car, go with what you want to look at.

Re: Need Opinions

I love stripes period....especially on an obscenely bright colored car...it breaks up the color and makes it a little softer on the eyes...

I would go with a different stripe on the side though that the 440 logo...I would go with Roush or Mustang writing or something similar to that...

I like the stripes, and keep the 40A on there, something different that you'll get to explain to ppl.

Re: Need Opinions

Some people are strip people and some are not~ I personally would go no stripes pretty much just like that second pic. I would change the hood (go with an 03 cobra hood from cervinis to match up with the front bumper right) but you would need to think about the spoiler then as it would be to much weight on the back visually without the raised hood~. I would go with the roush side exhasut as well. Those rims in the second pic are very nice but you need to upgrade the brakes at the same time ( a set of black brembos would look very nice with that setup)

If you go stripes I would ONLY do the ones across the top and leave the sides off.

the side exhaust is in the process, i have the side skirts sitting in my living room as we speak, just need the exhaust to go with it. the wheels i'm definitely going to get, just a matter of funds at this point, where i can put 2k into some performance parts first, and yeah brakes are going to be upgraded regardless

Re: Need Opinions

Do the stripes, just do it ALL THE WAY DOWN THE CAR!!!!!! I can't stand the way that Ford and a lot of people lately are stopping at an inch below the top of the trunk or at that very front of the hood... If you're going to go, go all out. And no numbers...... That's like a guy around here has GT300 on his side stripes and it's a stock GT with obviously 300 hp.... Simple is better... IMO.

I take great offense to that

by the way, the guy you are referring to with the side stipes, his stripes say "300HP", not GT300...get it right lol...(his happens to be yellow with black stripes, but it's NOT me)

Re: Need Opinions

****! I thought yours did go all the way down.




There is one that says GT300 and one that says 300HP :yup: Either he wasn't stationed here long or the car was sold or something. It was Silver. I know the yellow one says 300HP.

Yeh, I tried to catch her to see exactly where the 200hp came from...she's lucky if it's putting down 180.

be very careful not to get it to busy... learn when to much is to much. To much crap on the car just makes it look messy~ and over done. You have a good eye so just think of it from an artistic perspective.

No side stripes. The orange without the racing stripes, side stripes and side exhaust looks really clean. A 03/04 Cobra heat extractor hood with a Saleen S281 spoiler and the Roush S2/3 kit in comp orange with Chrome 03/04 Replicas would be sex.
