Man.. You should just save your money!..
Instead of adding more ricey stuff to your car.. why don't you use the money and de rice it and make it nice?..
The transformer crap, rear bumper cover, tail lights... rim center caps.. I could go on.... and then the eyes if you buy them.. uggh cluttered with crap

Rims I yellow make it too much yellow. Solid black rims would be much better.

I dunno, I've really only gotten negative feedback from you two and a few people states away on Facebook. No one I've asked thinks it's "ricey" or "cluttered", especially since it has a legitimate theme.

Besides, everything I've done to it matches each other, so it all flows together. I removed the stripe and instead exchanged it for a fresh wax job. I could see why the stripe might make it seem more cluttered or even ricey. But now it's gone. Regardless, why does it matter if it's muscle or not? Sad truth is, unless it's a cobra or similar, it's ****ty on a track. I'm a ford guy forever, don't get me wrong. But I choose to appreciate the looks of a car based on if it LOOKS GOOD, not if other people think it's muscle or rice. That's just another way to separate us as mustang enthusiasts.

Again, don't get me wrong, I'm not driving a speckled green stang with giant 26" green metallic rims. THAT is rice to me. But just because I put a sticker on my car and paint a 3" circle on my rims to match, doesn't make my car look any more "rice" or look like anything less than the 99-04's we all know and love. My son and I both love transformers, and bond over the games, movies, and classic shows. So if I want make the car look like his own big red transformer, I'm going to do it. Sorry if that's too "rice" for ya, since it seems to matter so much. And yes I used black head and tail lights. They look absolutely great and I don't regret it at all.

Sorry for the rant, but I'm just sick of getting on these threads to learn more about mustangs, chat with other enthusiasts, and learn some new tricks, and instead getting blasted because my mustang isn't cool enough, when I take a lot of pride into the work I put into my car, and the work I've yet to put into it. I understand scrutiny and criticism, but telling me to remove everything I've done to the car is only going to leave me with a plain stang. Which is great and all, but I prefer to stay unique to a certain degree. I think that's what makes this community great, and keeps me on the threads instead of just ending up as another picture someone took on the side of the road to make fun of my car.

I personally have never been a fan of matte or satin greys because they look too much like primer to me.

I'm not a fan as well. It looks like the clear coat stage was skipped. I do like the ghost stripes effect you can get with matte & satin finishes. For example, subtile, nearly body color stripes, work for me. To each his own though. To paraphrase many, it's our cars, we do what we want. How much fun would it be if all our cars looked the same?

Thanks clink, every meet I take it to I always get a crowd to ask me about her and I always get compliments in the street as well. I personally love matte colors, satin not so much but I would definitely rock it if I had the chance. The dip itself does look a lot like primer so I added a little black to it to make it darker. Another plus is that I don't have to worry about some a**hole scratching my car in tight spaces, and if they do.. I have 2 cans at home for touch ups instead of getting a buffer machine and chemicals to take off a scratch

Not bad, but it's more of an aluminum color than gun metal grey. Are those tail lights dipped too? I'm on my phone and it's a bit hard to tell. If so, that's pretty damn cool haha

Dodge Grand Caravan R/T. If you wanted a 280+ hp van to take your kids to school, the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T is just the car for you. they stuffed the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T with the new 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine which outputs 283 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Even more, dodge says the new, and more powerful engine, offers more power for the same fuel consumption

Body styles, the 05 to I think like 09 a by far my favorite. I've been looking for an 05 GT for a while. 99-04's come in second, my only issue with them is they need AT LEAST the Mach chin spoiler. That rounded chin just doesn't look great to me. 94-98's have been growing on me lately, been seeing a few that've been modified a lot more often lately. If you don't take care of them, they can quickly become that ****ty, old 90s car that we all hate.
The only stang I can say I really don't like the look of would be the fox bodies. It might be unpopular opinion, I'm not really sure. But I couldn't drive a fox body. But damn, they sure can get it on a track!

And I'm not including the older style like 67's and stuff and also not including the newest models either, because they are both about as sexy as it gets and it's not really fair to compare. Haha
