2001 body upgrades?

What can you do to make the outside front end and rear look better? i have a 2001 gt and i honestly dont like the way the front looks. i like the 2005 style better but i'm not looking to get a different car. any ideas?

Mach 1 chin, Mach 1 grille, tinted lights, lower the car, get fat tires out back.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

I like my 94-98 Jelly Bean but the New Edge does look mean. I will say that it does take more work to make a 94-98 look good vs a 99-04. It takes a LOT of work to make a 05-09 look good IMO.

Ya

Here is my 98GT which has the Cobra goodies up front/hood but will never be a "Fobra" as I hated ppl asking me "is it a real one?" when I had my 95 Cobra.



So yes the 94-98 can look great and the bonus is that for every car like mine you'll see 4 or 5 New Edges. A nice SN95 is getting to be pretty rare these days especially a GT. Most of the nice rust free garage kept ones are Cobras. At least around here.

Original GT front bumper with Mach 1 chin spoiler
Cobra front bumper, chin spoiler and fog lights
V6 rear bumper with exhaust dumped and not shown
cobra rear bumper with lettering removed
terminator side skirts
Mach 1 hood with scoop
assortment of hoods
shorty antenna
spoiler delete
cobra spoiler
wheels
tint
bullit side scoops
bullit side glass and pillar
tinted or smoked lights all around
painted calipers
and a few other options, anything else has the potential to make the car look worse and not better.

Only things you need for a 99-04 are:

-Mach lip
-Terminator side skirts
-Bullitt/Mach sail panels
-Mach Grille plate
-Spoiler delete (get a V6 trunk with no spoiler that color matches)
-Bullitt scoops if you want.






That car got a spoiler delete and hadn't installed the Mach lip yet and I forget where the thread was if he posted updated pics but I saved/hosted these and you can see what I'm talking about. Termi side skirts are not really cheap but they are the best looking ones bar none. The sail panels really set the car off from other 99-04s though because only the Bullitt and Mach had them. The Bullitt scoops are just a nice clean touch without the plastic honeycomb crap. Omfg do I loathe than honeycomb plastic.

Honestly a different hood is probably good too because of that stupid factory stick on scoop and more plastic honeycomb.

Honestly a nice set of 18" wheels, a 2" drop and smoked lights will give your new edge a night and day difference appearance wise. Finishing touches mentioned above like front end mach 1 treatments and a shorty antenna lol, will seal the deal.

Do you have to buy that whole ugly roadster kit to get the rear parts or will they sell just the bumper and filler panel for the trunk?

I really like the color compliments your car provides. The black scoops, and lips are interesting. In a good way!

BTW, I've had a shorty antenna for so long, it looks like you have an antenna extension! Any plans on that, or do you like it?
