A Little Overhaul

I got tired of my plain and janky looking rims so I picked up this set from AM. The Hyper Black really intrigued me and I'm pumped to get them on:

Boss Laguna Seca Hyper Black Mustang Wheel & Mickey Thompson Tire Kit - 19x9 (05-14 All) - Free Shipping

Has anyone had any experience with cleaning/maintaining this type of paint on the wheels?

While looking on eBay I also snagged a take-off GT Bumper already painted, with a lower valance and in great shape for $250 , immediately went and bought the Saleen grille for when it arrives haha.

Front end conversion done. Wheels and tires on. She's a sexy lady.

Wasn't able to find many, it was between these and the 2010 GT500 style. I like the Hyper Black coating on these.

Thanks! Finished detailing her a while ago after getting the bumper and grille set up. The splash guard was a little weird to figure out. It's a lot different on the V6 as that has a small chin splitter it hooks onto.

Definitely some good choices. Your car is looking great even better when you get the springs installed.

Yeah the supplier I looked at, I saw every color EXCEPT grabber blue lol. Come to think of it, I see tons of GB V6s, but very rarely do I see a GT.

This is interesting...I didn't see this one. You buy the bumper and they paint it to color match before they send it to you. Not a terrible price:

Painted to Match Front Bumper Cover for 10 12 Ford Mustang GT | eBay

It's not a take-off and doesn't have a bottom valance but eh. An option.

Wow, good find. 100% positive feedback is insane. I just hope they can do grabber blue!

I figured I'd add this one I did 20 minutes ago. Boss 302 steering wheel. Feels soooooo much nicer and just looks tons better than the stock plastic loop.

(Not sure why the app rotated the picture)
