Whats next appearence wise

So I ordered new black 302 emblems which will be alot bigger . I plan on a cowl hood and cervini bumper and new black rims . What else can I do appearance wise ? Was thinking caliper covors cuz I don't want to use the ford blue and it not match the stripes would look dumb wouldn't it? Thanks all and I've got alot of help from this forum !

I would tint the windows, and maybe change the gas lid to a matching blue. I'm not sure how that would look, though.

I think the front bumper is already going to change the look drastically. Personally, I'd call it good unless you really see something that you can't live without. Wheels with a shinier black finish would also look good.

I don't think you should do anything else. Already a lot going on and anything else will be overkill.

I was going to paint them with ford blue but worried the shade wouldn't match . That's why I might buy caliber covers in grabber blue when I get new wheels. And ok just my over all goal is to put it in shows I don't care if I win just want to have it looking as if she belongs lol. My future list is cowl hood , stalker bumper and side skirts , wheels and then all performance just slowly doing what I can . At this point car is plenty fast with my tune lol

Are those hood pins functional? If so where did you get them?

Also I agree. Look at mustangs that win car shows. They are never overdone at all.

well, I just looked at it as, why put something on that is fake when it has a fully working counterpart. So since I can get fully working hood pins, why get fake ones.

They claim a 30 min install, true?

Do you have a 13 hood? I think you have an 11 right. The 13 hood is more difficult than the 11,12 hoods, About an hour. It was hard for me to pull holes in my hood and I have instal hood pins before on carbon fiber hood.

I posted it already but I only installed them because my hood open on the highway the second latch was holding it place, That was scary when I came out of my car and seen my hood was open.

My hood is diffent from that link I posted, There is 3 layer and one layer is about 3'' apart,

Well I certainly understand why some people feel that way. But you'd be surprised on how many thumbs up I get or how many people are drooling over it as gas station . Lol I get less is more and perhaps when I put my cowl hood on il leave it stripeless on hood . I think the hood may be to much. But at end of the day my car is one of a kind . But I do appreciate your input and I love my scoops lol

I think there's already enough to "grab" someone's attention in the rear view mirror between the GB grill surround and hood scoop. I do agree with some of the others, I think it would be largely improved without the roof, banner, and spoiler vinyl. Get rid of those and then the caliper covers might be ok, but otherwise it'd be too much, especially if you are considering those mirror covers, would be too "boy racer" IMO.

See I get why some think its to much but in person it all flows maybe mirrors would be to much and maybe il just do black calibers . But I'm going to remove 400 dollars of work lol I love the roof done only thing I may take off is hood vinyl and windshield . But then again over summer il be getting cowl hood. Every time I drive the car I get compliments so I have to be doing something right lol .

I was thinking the same thing OP. That's a lot going on there. Personally I think you have too much color on it. If you removed the hood stripe it would probably change the whole look and look better too me. I'm not hating on your car at all, its a mustang lol, but ppl can go overboard sometimes and I think you are on the verge. If you are dead set on more GB then move inside the car or under the hood just keep if flowing and not go overboard.

Ya maybe il take hood stripe off . But the rest looks amazing to me I love my grill surround . And yes I plan on gb inserts for seats eventually. And I don't want to go overboard and I think once the bumper hood and side skirts are on it will change look again

Man, go from saying some of the GB doesn't match and everyone else (myself included) saying he should tread carefully with adding more, and you want him to add a third color into the mix?

That's where there mounted. I can't change the location. That's far from the middle.

It's the UPR kit. Only one location for it too go.

To OP

I was being nice and so is everyone else.

I have not posted how I really feel about your car and why do you keep talking about all the attention your getting. Do you really know how they feel about your car when they turn and look.

If I turn and look at some thing like that on the road it's not because I think it looks good.

I know it takes a lot of money to do mods to your car to get it to look good. Cheep mods most of time just spoils the look of a nice car that you already have.

Maybe I'm missing something, but why would you have to remove your rear tint to do the doors? I know the tint laws are different state to state but that just sounds odd without further info
