just bought a mustang.

Hello everyone so im new to the site. I just bought a 96 v6 convertible my first mustang. I paid $1,900 for it. It has 96,129 original miles. The only things wrong with it are a few little cosmetic things. One of them is a little crack were the air vent is, the second one is a little dent on the hood. But other then that its in perfect condition. I have a question as well, what is the best product to use to make the headlights look new again? Also tell me what you guys think of it!

Welcome to the site! Great pick up, I am sure you will love it.

This article should help you clear up those headlights: Restoring Ford Mustang Headlights

If you have any questions regarding that article, please let us know

Re: just bought a mustang.

congrats, when my headlight glazed over on my 98 gt, I just replaced them with ebay units...that was before the advancement in the cleaning agents.

Re: just bought a mustang.

yup, looks good. That car needs a drop bad (as all mustangs do) before you know it if you do little by little you will have it good to go.

Looks good for 1900 bucks but those look like 13 inch rims it needs to be lowered for sure I'm sure you will love it welcome.

Re: just bought a mustang.

Good find, and you definitely need to lower it or taller sidewall tires

Welcome!

Use either the product that Mothers has or 3M. They both work great.

Re: just bought a mustang.

welcome, very nice looking car...and $1900 isn't bad at all.

You could try a headlight restoration kit, I personally have never used one and don't know if they work all the time. There are some nice aftermarket/OEM replacements out there, might be worth picking up a new set.

Re: just bought a mustang.

Welcome.
A new set of headlights can be found on ebay or any number of Mustang sites. Prices aren't that bad.

Talking Re: just bought a mustang.

That is a beautiful Pony. The cleaning worked so bravo. I still would have gone with the eBay or Late Model Restorations web site, but the cleaning method is in fact WAY cheaper and faster. Yeah defiantly new wheels, and tires. Wouldn't hurt to lower, but still a great find. Any ideas for that engine?
