The 3rd one was the one Brandi took. TJ uses extra long exposure times in dark places and then sometimes adds lighting with a flashlight or something of that nature so that he can pinpoint what he wants to show up. We do need th get together and do another photoshoot sometime.

Indeed I do, man. I feel like I'm driving a Ferrari or something; I've come out to my car in a parking lot and caught people taking pictures many times. I had what looked like a 55 year old lady compliment me on my car the other day.....lol. It's a great feeling; I'm not going to lie.

That's a good one! I hadn't thought of that one yet. I've thought of the Hulk and Slimer from GhostBusters, but Reptile is a good one.

Re: lets see your S197 pics

hey rudedawg im curious. i see you u have on a cobra bumper, which looks HOT by the way. im guessing you had to order new quater pannels too? and did you have to order a special order on the california hood, or does it fit oem quater pannels and cobras?

i have to tell you i REALLY like the look of your car. i dont like alot of body work done usally but you have done a great job. very well put together. Strong and not too flashy.

Thank you much for the compliments, man. Not for nothing, but your car looks tough as hell, too. I actually just installed my new tail on it this weekend, but I haven't taken pics yet. I'll post some up later or tomorrow. I went with the Xenon tail. Kinda/sorta like the Roush tail in the sense that it is 3 pieces, but it doesn't hang over the edge of the trunk as far.

To answer your questions: I think when you say "quarter panels" you were referring to the fenders? The fenders do not change; however, the fender well liners are different. I'm sure you can use the GT/V6 ones if you trim them, or make new holes on them but technically, there are different.

The hood works fine; no problems. GT/V6 hoods work fine with the GT500 front ends, but the GT/V6 front ends won't work with a GT500 hood.

GT500 front end conversion requirements:

bumper
right & left headlights
upper and lower grilles
radiator support cover
driver & passenger fender well liners
headlight brackets
GT500 chin lip (I painted mine to match the car instead of the flat black GT500's have on them)
fog lights (I used aftermarket ones since the OEM fog lights are $100+ each side at my local dealers)

I may be leaving some little thing out that I don't remember now since I did the conversion over a year ago now, but I've seen plenty of detailed write-ups on it with part numbers and all. I hope this helps and feel free to ask any questions. With your KR hood, the GT500 front would look killer, since that hood was designed for that front.

Re: lets see your S197 pics

Hey guys...we picked up a '09 GT about a month ago. So far we've added Roush Springs, D-Spec Tokico struts and shocks, Hurst shifter and Spintech axle back exhaust. I have a CDC hood scoop on it's way and we're looking into some blackout and striping to be done soon.

Hell I forgot about this site...I joined up in '03 with my whole 5 posts...LOL


Heres a few pics:

Re: lets see your S197 pics

Man they were interviewing this week for process jobs. I think they are hiring 36 people for a class in june. First thing you have to do is go to the website and create a profile and get scheduled to take the test.

i was thinking the SAME THING. the gt500 front would look great with my hood. thing is at this point i dont think ill spend anymore $ on my car. i just spent another 2 grand. i want to leave it alone and get a GT or perphaps a challenger down the line.
Thanks for all the detail about your work. again, it looks awsome bro! thanks for the kind words about my ride.

Re: lets see your S197 pics

the challengers are ok. a r/t cost about the same as a gt and gives the same performance. the srt8 isnt as impressive but its alot cheaper than the new camaro ss.

Well, I won't take up any more server space, but since I said I would post pics of the new tail in a previous post, here they are:
