Yes engine enamel is easier to touch up, and with stands more heat, also isn't a flat color it shines I believe.
I think some shiny black wheels with my calipers painted would be good. Then black the rest out.

What y'all think?
I took torches words and thought about it and he is right, stick with the Black and Blue theme.

It's not a new edge but you get the idea...

Don't get me wrong. I have nothing against halos... IMO they just don't look right on NEs and look better on 05+s the farthest I'd go with headlights would be retrofitted OEMs... But to each his own.

This is a retrofit. It's an OEM headlight with projectors custom fitted into the housing. Quite expensive...

I was never a fan of smoked heads/tails.

Well I need new headlights, so maybe I'll get new OEMs and throw some covers on.

I'd get chrome cobras.
But I really think black Saleens would look sick, and I have new rotors so you wouldn't see rusted out ones.
Ruined my rotors back when we got the car out if storage, my dad never had the brakes checked or changed and it had 85k miles... Was at a friends a few miles away and was going back home and heard scraping when I pressed the brake. Tries to drift as many stop signs as I could and with the few times I did brake it ruined all my rotors...

A year ago tho.

Plus I think blue calipers would really stand out behind black

Lol I was like... Um......

So Mach 1 Grille Delete, I suppose I'll try it.
Headlights with new bulbs,
Covers front and Back
Sequential tail lights
And get rid of that ugly 9 foot antenna and get a 14" or what ever the tallest one on AM is the 8" is just to small.
I need tint all around.
Wheels/tires
And maybe the rear window louver. But I doubt I'll get that at this point don't think I would go well.

Unless I can find some cool ball housed headlights I'll most likely do covers to keep the theme flowing

I would love to have a fox as my toy and my six as my DD and build the fox.
And yes, that's the only style I like, the notchbacks. Oh god those are beautiful.
