Default A New Style - Many changes with pics

I finally got around to taking some pictures of some new mods and changes that have taken place over the past six months.

At the front I added Raxiom Smoked Projector Headlights, a Retro Billet Grille and 3 inch fogs. The fogs had a halo ring on them but I took them off so the lights would fit better in the bumper. The headlights could stand to be brighter but I reckon it's to be expected with smoked lenses. I'll probably upgrade to a brighter bulb. The Retro Billet Grille looks and works good, I'll probably find some hardware that isn't as prone to rust as what came with it.

Changed the wheels out for 18x9 XXR 526's in Chromium Black. Light will play tricks with the chromium black. When I got home and looked at these pics, I thought I have a different color wheel. I went to the garage and took some up close pics and they all look the same.

At the rear I added Raxiom Gen 5 Tail lights and changed the spoiler to an MMD Ducktail. I removed the Roush spoiler because the decklid portion was lifting on the ends. In the process of taking it off, I broke a set of studs from the spoiler. Fortunately, I opted for not drilling holes when I installed the Roush spoiler. So I removed all of the Roush and considered shaving the decklid but after getting quoted $500 to weld it up and refinish, I considered other options. Then I saw the new MMD Ducktail, it couldn't have come along at a better time. Needless to say, the tail lights are a great addition and knew I had to have them the first time I saw them.

I'm pleased with everything I've done. American Muscle has been superb! As was my dealings with Next Level Motoring. I ordered my wheels from them on a Tuesday afternoon, wheels were on my porch that Sat. morning!

I have some more ideas brewing, thinking about some Agent 47 or MMD mirrors. Maybe paint the chrome surround on the rear GT emblem with Duplicolor Shadow. If I don't finally break and put a supercharger on it!

Looking at your car now I really understand what people mean when they look at my car and they say that's a nice mustang, a really clean looking car. Your mustang is on the money! Rims are gorgeous! Gen 5 Tail lights go really good with black! Your car is not over done nor is it underdone! Its just right! It looks like the way a mustang should look!!!! Excellent job!

Thanks for the compliments! I'm glad you like and it's always nice hear, just like I told the guy who rode up in a triple white '93 5.0 while I was taking pictures, not bad yourself!

Thought I'd share some other photos from along the way for anyone that may be interested. Here's a pic of the car without a spoiler, I had the holes plugged up with some plastic push in clips and a dab of black RTV.

Pics of my wheel experiment to check colorations...

First pic of right front. I set the flash on my iphone to auto, then it didn't flash for this picture.

Right rear with flash.

Then I thought I should take a pic of the right front again with flash.

The results for the other side were the same as the darker images above. What's tricky is the machined look is the one on the rear, darker on the front in the full car pictures.

Thanks y'all!

After taking these pictures, I realized that I need to upgrade my camera, my iphone takes better pictures than my point and shoot, so I got me a Canon EOS-M. Time to brush up on my photography and see what I can do with this new camera!

Nice, all you need now is to lower it a bit!

I had the exact same thought, been conemplating gen 5 tails but pricey, but looks amazing here..

Clean rides are ftw and stand out even more than overdone cars!

I been having trouble with my build but after seeing this I feel like my wheels should be the first mod and after that build around.

It's kind of strange reading this since the car is lowered with Roush springs but I've always thought that the rear could stand to be a bit lower myself. I've been considering changing the suspension for some time and I think I've narrowed it down to some KW coilovers.
