Lets refrain from the name calling, and badgering

When you solicit opinions, you'll get them. Granted, sometimes they are not what you want to hear. However, name calling is never permitted.

Lets go back to topic.

I think it looks pretty good except for the roof vinyl. I can understand doing a blue car's roof black but I can't get myself to like the blue roof. But besides the blue. I think a chin spoiler would look great.

I also put an Eleanor style grille on mine to move the fogs in and I get a ton if compliments on it. At first I was on the fence about it but that's always what people comment on first, especially when comparing it to the guy I work with who has a stock grille.

Basically, either the chin spoiler or grille would look great. I have both so I say do both also lol.

The graphics would look much better if they were matte black. Blue 5.0 emblems would be nice. I would really take all the blue off though and just do subtle accents.

The 302 emblem isn't spaced evenly within the graphics and it looks pretty tacky on a 5.0. Not to mention it looks like this.... 3 0 2

Agreed. It looks like a mismatched mess. Subtle accents are best for this car. The cars that win car shows are not crazy mess of random things haha.

Haha I have Amrs on it now . And I do want to remove some blue just cost so much to see if I liked it but that's why I got vinyl not paint . No harm no foul can take it off when ever . I really don't know what direction to go some say take off the sides other the roof lol

But I'm not upset just want real advice not o it looks dumb or w e lol I agree blue needs to come off . But the grill and wing are my fav parts so maybe roof or hood . Also will a rear window louver work with my side scoops?

For what it's worth, you have the EXACT same stripe scheme as a Laguna seca but blue instead of red. You're going to get slack for the 302 emblems, so expect that. You did right by the wheels, but anything you do at this point as far as blue goes is going to be too much. You need to start spending your money on other things than appearance now, before it starts looking just tacky. Try going for straight performance now and suspension.

All the blue isn't exactly my style but it's not my car so you do what you want on that. I will add that if it were me I would change up the badges and either go no badge or back to a 5.0 badge. Just a piece of advice is to never ask for opinions especially if you don't have thick skin. Gotta adopt the it's my car ill do what I want attitude.

I've been keeping an eye on the changes you've been making, and thought to myself, "oh god, what is this guy doing to his car?" But, then again it's not my car, so my opinion doesn't really matter. However, you're asking so I would say change the hood and roof back to black. And I don't know if it's possible, but could you move the 302 badge slightly to the left so its centered in the boss stripe? I thought that badge was really clever but it looks kinda off to me. Idk just my opinion.

But overall I like your creativity with the appearance. I definitely haven't seen any other mustang out there like it. Don't let the haters get you down. Obviously they don't know the difference between constructive criticism and insult. But, at the same time, it's the Internet, so you have to expect some idiots.

Thanks and I think I will take off hood and roof next weekend then leave the wing grill and sides will be Nicley accented then and still unique . The boss badges are hard to move cuz il have to get new 3m tape but maybe badge less will be better . I'm getting front windows tinted 20% on Monday . The grill is next and chin spoiler . But my big question will rear window louvers work with my scoops? Lol I've always thought they looked amazing on black cars . Thanks all and yes suspension is next but I don't track it all that much so slowly il get there

I personally like louvers on all the windows with side scoops. I've thought about doing it myself.

I say focus much more of your time and efforts on what you like and put much much less stock in other people's opinions and advice. While it is sometimes good to know what others opinions are, at the end of the day its your car, your pride and joy, and you are the one footing the bill for all of it. So if it makes you happy as it sits and you are pleased with the appearance, by all means leave it that way and be proud to own/drive it. Just my two cents, take it for what thats worth.....probably not even .02.

Here is my idea,

Leave the vinyl on the grill,hood and wing. Take everything else off.
You car will has a sense of flow. Now your all over the place. Go back to black 5.0 emblem.

Get the rear louvers if you like. I like them but, They don't seem to hold up well after awhile. I had looked in to them when I got my car.

Yeah at least it's not painted on. You got some good things going on man. I would make a few changes,but yes it's sharp dude. Are the wheels AMR gloss black? How do they hold up not showing fine scratches after washing? Just curious. I haven't been on here in a good while so thats why I don't know what wheels you went with.Sizes sound good!

Your throwing money away because you keep rushing into things... I wouldn't buy anything you mentioned for at least two weeks. If you still want them buy them. Your going too buy them and then take them off in a few weeks if you don't.

Slooooow down.

This weekend te vinyl will come off il step back and evaluate I think the roof would look out of place by its self so il prob take it off to .

And to be honest when I can il be putting a whole body kit on it probably the stalker kit . So I can do my rear window louver and grill or my hood . Like mentioned earlier I'm going to sit on it for a while

I agree with this 100% the C Stripe and the 302 badges are not flowing right... It makes the car look like its going thru an identity crisis... Any random person would see it on the road would see that and they wouldn't be sure if its a real 5.0 or sixer... When I see a modern 5.0 with the right badge, it make a bold authentic statement

I just got some custom Ground Control coilovers to accent the blue... just saying.
The saying, "less is more", is taken into affect here. It looks like you have money burning a hole in your pocket!! lol I'm all about expressing yourself thru your car so if you were to keep it as is would be completely reasonable. Honestly, I would take all the blue off your car other than your hood decal. There are too many lines with the blue (if that makes any sense). The spoiler being grabber blue is really not my thing, you should try flat black with that. Those are my 2 cents.

It would look great in blue, only if done exactly like his. Avengnd's car is a perfect example of how to pull off a two tone with black and a bright color. It's tasteful, subtle, but still demands attention. Your car on the other hand is confused, disorganized, and crying for help. You went to far bro, and the only shows you'd ever place in would be some Hot Import Nights Crap. Throw on some blue NOS stickers and some blue underglow neons, add a bumpin system all fiberglassed out and filling the trunk. Paint that all blue and you'd get Best of Show for sure. Your car only fetches compliments because people don't have the ba11s anymore to tell people how they truly feel to there face. Bring your car around some of the old school muscle car guys I know, or even some my other friends and you'll get laughed at. Not trying to be mean, just being honest and giving a opinion that we were all asked for. Good luck to ya, you'll get it right one of these days, even if you have to copy someone else's style.
