Default Balancing out Cervinis C-Series Front Fascia

Okay, so I've been waiting to do this for 2 years, and 2 S197s, but the time is almost here.

I'm planning on doing a C-Series Front Fascia on my 2007 GT/CS. Depending on how much the repairs cost from the dent I received last night at the movie theater, I should be able to make the purchase at the end of next week.

I'm kind of modeling this car after SaddleUps, as was the original plan...I don't want to copy her obviously, but as far as body pieces it's going to be a similar look, so that I can keep my Pypes Mid-Muffler system running out the back, while still keeping the C-Series Front balanced out along the sides and rear of the car, height wise.

So here is the current list of parts. It is unfinished, because I'm unsure what I need to do to the rear of the car to balance it out.

https://cervinis.com/product.aspx?car=1&id=1208#3347

Part #8013 C-Series Front Bumper Kit

http://www.southernmustangparts.com/...iece-p-96.html

Street Scene Side Skirts

This is what SaddleUp did to even out the sides with the front. I'm not 100% sold on these side skirts. Are there any other options as far as side skirts go that I should check out? Most of them are just too flashy and ricey looking.



That's it right now. I'm scared the rear won't balance out though. SaddleUp used the Street Scene rear valence piece as well, and it evens it out, but she was working from a stock GT, and I'm starting with a GT/CS.

I found this picture from a guy that just had the Street Scene Side Skirts installed with a GT/CS rear.

Click the image to open in full size.

Any opinions on that? Obviously the front is unbalanced, but it won't be the case on mine since the C-Series Front will even it out. Does the rear look out of place in that photo?

Any other ideas? I'm sticking with the stock hood for now and hopefully going with one of the TruFibers a bit down the road, a month or so hopefully.

What does everyone think of the plans so far? Any alternate ideas?

Oh, one more thing. I have actually considered going with the GTS-R fenders, considering I'm going to be spending a good bit to get my current ones fixed, but I'm worried that doing that might be an overload of eye-grabbing parts on the front end of the car.

http://www.cruizinconceptswholesale....MUSTANGFENDERS

My other issue is replacing one of the few parts on our cars that is actually metal with a fiberglass part. I know that Caution had these exact fenders on his car, but he got them made from metal, I think they were a prototype of the ones they put on the market. I would definitely consider doing that, but I can't seem to get ahold of Caution by PM, nor do I have any idea if that is possible or what the cost would be to get that done.

Any opinions on that?

I personally think that you need the whole kit not just pieces. You want it to be complete or in your words even. So, I would definitely get the whole kit and i like the idea about the fenders as well.

That is SaddleUps car, the one I'm modeling this after to an extent.

That shows the C-Series Front Fascia with the Street Scene Side Skirts. The only concern is balancing out the rear of the car with the front and sides. I'm not 100% sure, but I think the only way to use the Street Scene Rear Valence would be for me to sell my GT/CS Rear, buy a GT Takeoff Rear, and add the Street Scene piece on to that, because I'm pretty sure it's made to fit just the GT rear.

I could be completely wrong but I think it would look fine.
Maybe go down to the chop shop and have them try it out down there first.

What combo do you think would be fine?

Alright. I think it would look great together, I'm just worried about the ride height of the rear end compared to the rest of the car.

I think you could pull it off.
Plus it would be different from what other people have.

I know it can be pulled off, I just gotta play with it a bit and see what looks the best. Are there any other side skirts that I should look into?

Dibs on the GT/CS front if you're selling.

I think you'll end up needing to do something to achieve balance. You're going with very bold/low parts on the front and sides, and leaving the sleek, higher ground clearence GT/CS rear fascia is going to look odd imho.

The good thing is the GT/CS bumpers are in high demand by people wanting to refit GTs and V6s, so you'd have no trouble selling and getting something appropriate to really pull your vision together.

Edit: See...Alloysixxer proved my point while I was typing

Yeah, I just really like the look of the GT/CS rear, and I wish I could just drop it down a bit, but of course I want to balance it out. I might be able to get the Street Scene rear to look a bit like the GT/CS if I paint the center part matte black. We'll see.

Instead of making a new thread I figure I would resurrect this one. I'm in the same boat as the OP was not that long ago. I have a mostly stock exterior v6. Last year I purchased a GT/CS / GT500 rear and it's been sitting in my garage. I love the look of that bumper...anywho tomorrow I'll be receiving my Cervinis C-Series Front end kit and I'm currently making plans to balance it out with the GT/CS rear. I wanted the side exhaust, but all I see is bad feedback about the clearance at stock levels, and it's even worse if you are lowered like me. With the being said I was looking at the Cervini Stalker side skirts below. I'm curious as to what the OP (or anyone else) has done to make this front look good with a GT/CS rear.

those skirts look really low. maybe it's the angle. I've been actually thinking about swapping to those w/ no other changes to my GT myself.
