What should I do?

Last Sat. when I was out, some one scratched the side of my rear bumper pretty good. It's very noticable to me. So now I'm at a crossroads on what to do.

My two choices are to repaint the front (all scratched up) and rear bumper, get the carbon fiber hood, chin spoiler, and smoked headlights and be done with the outside except for the 10th Anniversary Cobras. Or, I could get the Saleen Body kit with the clear headlights and chrome Saleens.

What should I do?

I was going to post a link to a set of 10th ann rims and tires for sale, but $1200 seems a bit steep to me. They have like 2000 miles on them, but still, 300 per wheel + tire used...I'm not sure. If you want the link...I can send it to you.

But I do agree....go with choice 1.

i say 2 cause repainting just one or two parts of the car never really works good cause you can never match the paint exactly

But if he gets a saleen kit, won't he just be painting the saleen pieces and trying to match them to the rest of the car? Same concept, just different pieces.

It's still all up in the air. Cobra appearance kit wouldn't be bad either.


...Doesn't look bad either...

i think a carbon fiber hood would just look bad... and tend to rice out the car.... dont get one unless you plan to paint it... then wahts the point there are far better things to spend the money on instead of saving a couple lbs on the front end.

The plan is to leave the top part of the "cowl" on the hood carbon fiber and paint the sides. It really is just a looks thing.

They also have the hood in blue carbon fiber. (or kevlar )
