Looks good so far. That shop looks to do some nice work. I would agree with you that those cars just aren't as collectible anymore. The resale value is surprisingly low to me. I'm shocked at how many are afraid to drive them now days. Look forward to seeing the end result. Awesome idea

Thanks bro and yea I think after the 10/11's came out the 07-09s dropped a good amount. Then the 13/14's came out and the 07-09's ended up being nearly 50% down overall! Hell a upper $20K car after only a couple years down from $50K sure sucks. So Ive got no worry slicing and dicing lol

This has been a really satisfying thread!

The OP tantalized us with a terrific premise and then delivered fully, and in such a timely fashion too! Awesome!

lol not sure if that's sarcasm or not but Thanks either way

Money, waiting on others to get things done that are not in my control and having to update multiple threads isnt as easy/quick as one might think

Im thinking of just keeping one thread for it all.

Before starting the final fender mods and making them in carbon fiber, this is how the front end looked when it was on and done

Update:

Part of the delay... tucking ~2" or rim




Fenders are done and looking SICK! Custom but looks like they were designed by Ford! You have never seen a conversion fender that looked so good if I dont say so myself!

Im starting on the molds this week to make them into carbon fiber :beerchug2:
