Default 2011 GT rear sheetmetal upgraded to 08 styling

Sorry guys, but just like a lot of people, I hated the rear end styling of the 2010 up Mustangs when they came out. It looked like a Celica and I figured I'd never own one because of it. Then when the new 5.0 appeared I figured a way around my problem. I usually buy a damaged car and style it up with a body kit, custom hood and wheels. So why not buy a 2011 5 litre car hit in the rear and style it my way. I just started doing that yesterday with a 08 donor car. I'll be installing 69 or 70 tail lights. [I've done that before on my 05]
I'll have more pics later sometime as I plan to work at this project all winter.

Sounds like a great idea! I have an 07, I would love to have the 5.0 motor, but I hate what they did to the rear end. Keep us updated on your progress.

Thanks.
Maybe I should be posting this in a more general area of the forum? [more lookers]

I think most people are waiting to see how to turns out when it's completed. I had an 05-09 and the squared rear matched the squared front. The 10-14 Mustangs definitely have a more rounded look to them. Any picture updates?

No pics for a while. Busy at other things. BTW this car is also getting an APR wide body kit.

Roughed into shape.
APR wide body quarter panels are a bit short due to being designed for the bobtail 10-up model, so I a blending them into a fiberglass rear spoiler.
Fiberglass top edge of the 05-up bumper cover will be blended into the APR wide body bumper cover.

Mocked up the front end with the wide body parts.

Potential for this to suck. But great potential for this to be cool. I'm following.
