appearance help

Ok well her's my current set-up
Cobra R front
Black widow side skirts and rear bumper
Motegi racing 17x7.5" wheels (white) with low profile tires sizes are: 215/40's
I really hate that I got low profile tires because they make my white rims look like they are freaking 10"

So now on to the question I was thinking about adding a Steeda rear spoiler. I really like those spoilers. What do you guys think any other suggestions?

Also I really want to drop the stang there's just too much fenderwell showing can I see a pic of C-springs, H&R's, and maybe eibach's? Witch do you guys think will give me a nice drop so my rims don't look like freaking pennys. I'm looking for around an inch to an inch and a half.

PS: Sorry I don't have pics for you guys to reference from I have no digital camera and the pics I scan come out with too large a file size. If someone could show me how to resize them that would be fantastic

If not Steeda, then the S-351 conversion wing or the S-351 wing itself.

I don't no what the color of your car is, that could help with the end cap decision.

Well, if you go with Steeda, and if you paint the endcaps black, make sure you have something else black so it can play off of it. Like smoked headlights, graphics, and/or tinted windows.

Well I have tinted windows and my car is white my rims are white. I was thinking about getting some very subtle black graphics on my hood later on. So I guess all that would work well with black end caps.

Also I'm really leaning towards C-springs do you g uys think they provide enough of a drop? Does anyone have pics of c-springs on there car?

hey dude,
the black widow wings are sweet. you should also think of getting some z3 or bullet fenders if you don't have them.
theres this company i saw in the ford mustang trader magazine called www.hardcorestangs.com, they are located in california, 714 area code. i think it's near disneyland.
with your current set up of body kit and rims, a wing and fenders and maybe a different hood should be showroom caliber.
well thats my opinion.
peace

I can't seem to find pics of the bullet or lazer fenders do you or anyone else have a pic of them? I would love to do something different with my fenders but I want to see everything that's out there.

I would go with the Z3 instead of the other ones. But, that's my opinion.


The reason why I can't find any of the other ones is because no ones has any pictures of them except on Civics.

You know I do like them and there not that expensive. Really I just like being different, and those will definitly help that. And honestly there not too "ricey" I guess is the term you guys like to use, IMO.

I just don't like the whole "Z3" thing. If I wanted Z3 fenders, I'd have bought a Z3.

But if you want them, go get them! It's your car.

Ok, you know I always get a chuckle from alot of guys on mustang boards when talking about stuff like this. They have no problem putting on GT, cobra and saleen stuff on t here cars but when something different comes along they automaticly shy away without giving it a second thought. By the way I'm not trying to knock you in any way everyone has there opinions and that's fine.

there is nothing on my car that says "gt" "cobra" "or saleen"

granted, most of the stuff on my car is stock right now, but even if it wasn't I wouldn't be sporting something that isn't my car.

I might put a bumper that comes on a Mustang GT on my car. But it does not say Mustang GT. It says Mustang. I would think differently if it had the GT badging.

I'm against false badging in any way. Check some of my other posts if you want.


edit: im not intending to get too defensive, because I can see where you are coming from on that. But I'm not one of those people who are like what you describe.

I understand that that's why I didn't mention you or anyone specificly.

:wstupid:


I'm also against false badging. I don't want to put a Saleen printed bumper on my car unless it doesn't have the words Saleen on it. I'm not going to tell people my car is something it isn't.

Hey, Here are some pictures of my car. I have the steeda wing and eibach sportline springs with 17" rims, but bigger tires. I had to cut my springs to drop it more because it wasn't enough for me. I have a 2" drop over all now. The C springs give like a 1.5" max i think. Hope this helps you out some.



here is a nice picture of the drop for you:

the grille on the top of em looks ok, but I don't like the depressions on the sides, they just don't fit the lines of the car

I found a site that sells the z3 fenders without the depressions on the sides and they "Guarantee" that the fenders will fit perfectly. I am getting them for my brithday. If anyone is interested I can get the website for you.

its not low profile tires that make your rims look wide, its the fact that a 215 is a little to small for your 7.5, you should upgrade to a 225 or 235

Oh, with those Z3 fenders, some sport truckin' companies sell the metal Z3 fender insert that you can cutout and weld them into your stock fenders.

It's not that my rims look wide, they look small diameter wise because I don't have a drop have and have whole lot of fenderwell showing.
