To go wingless?

I'm thinking about going wingless on my 96 GT. I really like how the 99-04 GT's look but not to sure on how the 94-98 would look wingless. Anyway gonna use the nylon plug method, anyone have any input on it? Like reasons not to do it or why I should? Thanks.

I understand and agree the new edges look mean wingless but I feel if done right the sn95's are able to pull it off just as well. Pretty much gonna get the plugs and do it this weekend might cut my springs down 1/2 or 3/4 a coil too just to lose the 4x4 appearance. Based on what I've read on forums is that it should drop it about 1.5" which is what I was wanting todo anyway. Saves me money and get the look in after. Win win? I'd like to think so.

if you want that drop you'll need to cut 1.25 coils off the front and 1 coil off the back...i've cut about 10 different sets of springs all with that cut to achieve that drop...also rarely do i leave the ISOs unless the person for some reason wants them....i'd pull them IMO

I just did this to my cobra and I love it! I do agree that you have to have at least the car lowered and fat rear rubber really pulls off the look. To be honest I think the plastics clips look trashy and the spoiler looks better than that. I went the whole way. Spoiler delete and the trunk lid emblems shaved off. I jb welded the 6 holes closed. Ground the epoxy down, body filled, and primed/sanded to a glass surface. I also resprayed the lid myself and really dig the way it came out. It cost me about $100 to do it myself and a lot of time but I learned a lot. Pull the spoiler off and if you like it I would consider getting it painted.

Going wingless.....I agree with Joey18.....looks like something is missing. I, for one, prefer the wing.

I think wingless on the SN95's look damn good, especially how they have the little lip on the trunk lid.. Here's a shot of my 98'

Haha thanks! And ditto!
As much as I wish it was lowered, it's not. Pretty soon I would like to do everything as far as suspension works (lowering springs, shocks/struts, ect.)
