Default My mustang quick clip, fews picts

Well here it is, I had a couple little probleme with it once I bought it, the serpentine broke on me and it was 2 to 4 weeks delivery from roush californie down to canada since Roush is the only maker for my custom sized serpentine(long story short)
Since I didnt build this car, im not aware of what exactly is on it, Ive noticed Dynatech headers, roushblower, forged internal, camshaft, crank pulley is a huge **** machined, x pipe?/h pipe? noob me, not sure, stock muffler tho, needed them to be a bit safe with cops inspection lately on exaust. I got told im running nearly 540 hp, pretty soon ill bring it to the dyno just to get the exact RWHP and torque number. First real modded car, lots of fun, never really drived manuel before lol, I had to learn how to shift properly with that much power(for me), still having a bit of difficulty when spinning in 1 and getting second speed in, pretty often I get the engine to just die on me (like falling way back down to low rpm losing power) either im waiting to long to shift in two while the tire spin, or too short? not sure hehe . Enough, here the pict and the video! no hate on me not like I didnt tell you im new into this, and so is my english.

picture:






Car was freshly painted, black vinyl strapped, roush badge, tint 35 all around and 50% front windshield, tail light 35% tint, side marker 35%, lets me know your opinion! I removed the eleanor style scoop on my rear window, wasnt really comfortable with them, car is a v6 swapped into a v8 with the whole conversion kit, the whole suspensions is upgraded Steeda if im not mistaken, the only thing stock on it is the spring...weird, I might drop it, but ill be way too low front with my bumper so not sure yet. It has some kind of blue tension strut bolted threw the rear wheels, greattttt cornering, car is stiff and grip real good, Im not sure what gear im running if it 4.10 or 3.73 but im like 25 kms off on my speedometer, and it not cause of my wheels..
I also noticed my driveshaft seems to be enforced with heavyduty stuff.. Ill take pict of the mechanic and under car pretty soon, lets expert chime in.

Looks great and sounds great! I'd extend those stripes on the side so they go wheel to wheel but other than that, lower it a little bit and call it a day, great ride!

Mad, for the stripe your talking about wheel to wheel, do you mean like filling the 3 inch missing behind front wheels and after rear wheels? if so, i dont know why it was not done...im pretty sure I saw front or rear wheel side stripe going under some plastic corner..i know the car had side skirt for cervini mounting but got removed, im starting to wonder if they didnt do the stripe before putting back the original side rocker? gotta double check this tommorow, would be lame juice if so. Or maybe because it make a wave in the flat line, vinyl guy didnt want to make it like bossy... thanks tho, definitly checking this when day light come.

I'm not a fan of "Eleanor" cars, but hey, everyone has their own ideas about what looks good.

Regarding the rocker stripes - the Cervini side skirts are problematic with regards to striping. You may have been better off getting the 3D Carbon skirts because they don't extend into the rocker stripe area, as seen on my car:
