Thanks! It was this or Grabber Blue and I got a screaming deal on this one so...
I struggled with grabber blue stripes or going with the B&W, but I'm committed now
What's next? You're forcing me to break out the spreadsheet now!
In terms of timeframe...
I have an extra spoiler with camera that I want to plastidip matte black to match the top, hopefully that'll look right.
Since I can't find pre-painted rockers I'll prob pull mine and send them to my buddy's shop for painting. I'll get the rear bumper spats you guys sell at the same time and have all those pieces painted at once.
While that's happening I'll prob swap the front end. GT bumper cover and lower valence. Raxiom black halos (got them the day they hit your site) with the HIDs from StangMods, Saleen grille, and LED DRLs (will wire in the halos with these). Have to figure out how I'm going to mount the front plate without ruining the front bumper. Also going to install parking sensors into the front when I'm doing that job. Haven't figured out how I'm going to integrate that into the interior to make it look as OEM as possible. Might have to mold or 3D print a new dome light cover big enough to accommodate the parking sensor display.
Have some hash stripes for the fenders, and the smaller hood strips that I'll test fit to see if I like. That should spice up the hood some. If that doesn't do the trick I may order some of the GT vents and cut/flange the hood for them. Do you guys offer anything that gives the flavour of the GT500 heat extractor? My hood is shaped all wrong for it, but I'm in love...
I'm test fitting my CCWs from my RX7 to see if the offset will work. If not, I'm eyeballing the GT500 wheels and thinking about powdercoating them bronze. Hoping to get a 295 under the rear if possible as that's what I'm running on those CCWs.
Way down on the priority list is 13-14 lights and rear bumper conversion. WHen I do that I'll add parking sensors to the rear valence as well.
I just discovered how to swap on heated mirrors with the pony lights, so now that's on the list, if a little lower.
More immediately I'll try swapping in the OEM nav as I have most of the pieces. Just need some harnesses and such. That will cause me to need to upgrade the stereo as it'll require an AMP and once you're into it, you might as well do it all.
Oh, one thing that'll happen sooner than most of the others is the one-touch turn-signal mod. Got very used to those driving European cars.
There are some interior dress up items by a company called Redline that I like. I still need a good clean shifter knob though... I like the racing strips and clean round ball, but I hate that all the ones on the AM site seem to have stuff engraved into the side. I continue to watch that section for new additions.
There are some other smaller things I'm interested in tinkering with. I know a guy that managed to create a touch sensitive switch that he placed behind his dash bezel to operate his garage door. I'd like to see if I can do something similar and place it behind one of my button blanks. Maybe a similar switch to operate the DRLs, but that's all speculation until I see what the backside of that button console looks like.
Under the hood I'll be looking for a solid CAI, BBK shorties and Borla Tourings with a tune. Getting some feedback on whether high flow cats or cat deletes are worth the trouble and if so what that'll do to the exhaust tone.
Add 3.55s and and either an Eibach or Ford Racing suspension package and she should be ready for the road course up here at Pacific Raceways in the Seattle area once it dries up in July.
Oh, I'll matte out the faux gas cap and might try matting out the smoked deck lid cover to match and see what it looks like. Also ordered some Plastidip in "smoke" and have some lexan I want to test it on to see what kind of matte smoke effect I can achieve for my taillights. The tint is really terrific, but it may look weird being all glossy smoked if I've made everything else matte. Be worth experimenting with.
I guess that's it at this point.
The car is basically a focus point for my tinkering obsession. I'll have to resist the urge to change things around too often.
That's probably more than you were actually asking for
