7 Days $1000 later...

So I bought this 06GT on valentines day (the GF wasnt too happy about that), but then I got hooked buying stuff for it. I mean, I had to make it my own right? I had to make it stand out from the crowd. So here a little story...

Here is what she looked like the day I bought it-


A couple days later, packages started to arrive-


During surgery-


What the front end looked like before-


What the front end looked like after with lights off-


With lights on-


Lights at night-


I also put on Axle-back Magnaflow agressive exhaust-


After being tinted-


I now have started a list of other thing I want to get done as well. My next purchase will be a CAI and Tuner, that will be next week. Let me know what you guys think so far. Any suggestions on future mods?

Thanks! Thats the look im going for. I have definitely caught the bug again, this is my second mustang. I have a 05 V6 and ended up selling it when I lost my job.

This is my new money pit. The gf doesnt mind anymore, now that I have her a ride with the top down, and told her I wouldnt go "too fast" with her in it. Now I just need to name her and get some plates, and ill start a build thread with pics from stock to what I end up with.

Scott2, I have quite the list and will be slowly buying as the funds come in. My next purchase will either be CAI/Tuner or CDC Shaker RAI. I'm thinking the CAI an wait for the Shaker until it warns up some.

04TRV6, I plan on using this thread as sort of a build reminder. So I can see where I came from, and to plan on what to do next. Any suggestions?!

I just swapped out the same wheels with some nice 5 spokes. They make the car look so much more aggressive and sexy.

That's exactly what I did. It was a good plan I thought. Your car looks great!
