Something to spice up the side?

When I look at the front and back of my car I go damn what a beautiful car. But from the sides it seems very plain and need something to spice it up.

My question is what do you guys think I should do? I was a clean car, but not boring. Things I should paint my GT symbols red? Maybe put red mustang stripe down the bottom of it? My GT symbol is blacked out ATM so I think that contributed to it being plain an boring ish. Anyone got ideas for a black stang?

My last stang was sun yellow so it was a lot easier to customize with black accents. I'm having trouble finding stuff to do for my black one that doesn't make it look mucked up and ****ty.

Just my opinion but I really like clean looks, sbtle changes in colors. If it is black and you do not want to do black accents maybe go with Matte black or Carbon Fiber for a contrast while keeping the meaner black look?

I've thought about this before, but matte black doesn't really come out enough for you to see. It's so subtle that it can look bad, ya know?

Personally, wheels and a drop are all these cars need to look good from the side. Is it a 99-00 or an 01-04?

I agree on it needing to be lowered, desperately. That cost around a grand ish though right? To do it properly at least? I am talkin about smaller cheaper little cosmetic things. Lowering is in the future for sure, just not ATM.

I believe my rims are cobra R's and I painted them black.

It really depends on how often you wanna work on the suspension. I've been piecing suspension together for the past year and a half. Really you would just need to start with springs and caster/camber plates. You could always wait a couple months to do shocks.

Springs and camber plates are like 500-600$ total?

C/C plates are $210 if you go MM, H&R and Eibach springs are $250, then install and go get an alignment when you're done.

^Agreed, you need lowered. Also your rims are 17" 03 Cobra style rims with Saleen center caps.

Yeah I noticed that, like who the hell puts saleen center cap on cobra rims lol. But no ideas on the sides besides lowering? Y'all think turning the GT symbol red would be "too much"

Nothing is wrong with a clean black New Edge except the stock 4x4 stance. Throw a Mach lip on it, lower it, tint the windows and dunzo. I think you are looking for something that isn't there but its your car, if you want to paint it neon green go for it lol.
