Cleaned up the front and *** end ;)

Before:





After:





CDC Chin spoiler
MMD Deck lid
Retro styling black billet grill top and bottom.
5% tint all around and 50% on the entire windsheild

I have a smoked black windshield American Muscle decal for the top on the windshield, but i'm letting my window tint guy put it on because I'll make it crooked, i know it! lol

oh and I put on the pypes 3" super system. holy cow I love how it sounds. There is some drone (its not an annoying flow-master type drone if that makes sense, it has a different frequency) at 2000-2100 but at soon as you pass that even by 50 rpm, it cuts out completely. The install went very smooth considering all the bad reviews i heard about fitment, the hardest part was getting the stock exhaust out because I didn't have a lift; after that it bolted right up.

Here is mine but I like that lower part better on yours. This was the only thing done on my car when I bought it. I don't know the brand but wish it was not black. I had to reconnect it to the car as it was falling off when I bought it.

That looks like a stock chin spoiler with the grill insert. I like it black on your car, honestly..

ThinBlueLine,


Your car looks great! I love everything you've done so far, The red and black scheme you went with is killer. The tinted windshield also looks great!

Thanks for shopping with AM and being a great customer, we appreciate your business! Let me know if you ever have any questions.

-Dan

Thanks everyone! I'm still debating on if I should smoke the tail lights, side markers and what not. I think it may be TOO much..

No that's what I did and I even smoked out the ponies on the sides of my car to bring everything together but I must say that is a sick *** mustang, I usually like the look of the fog lights in the grill but it looks way too clean with out it! Major props!

Re: Cleaned up the front and *** end ;)

Well, just ordered replacement LEDs from v-leds for the front/rear side markers, map/dome lights, license plate lights. V-leds seemed to get the best reviews as far as quality and brightness go.

V-leds recommends that for best results you match the bulb color to the lense color. For example, if you have a red lens..replace it with a red LED and so on. So, that's what I did, red LED for the rear side markers and amber for the front sidemarkers. I also purchased the flank style which is what you want for any application where the lights are mounted sideways or 90 degrees .

all this to compliment the complete set of smoked lights tint I picked up from AM..should be great!

Smoked Quarter Marker Light Tint
Smoked Side Marker Light Tint
Smoked Tail Light Tint
Smoked Third Brake Light Tint

Do y'all think gloss black 5.0 emblems or matte black would look best with the red candy color? The billet aluminum grills are gloss black, but at the same time the chinspoiler and grill shell are matte...

Damn I wish I could buy all that when I wanted too, but I'd go with what ever scheme your going with and stick with it. but I like matte black more than gloss black. That's just me Tho.

The joys of being single and having a career is all that is man, lol I'm not rich by any ones standards lol. I'd do either gloss or matte, but I was thinking since the grills are already gloss, maybe that's the way to go with the theme?
