Good luck copying the Saleen. PLEASE don't badge it one, though. Nothing worse than a poser.

I'm down with whatever as long as he doesn't put numbers on it. Def do it if you want, not my car, just saying. Technically he is doing what Saleen is just by himself. So as long as he doesn't make a number then it's all good IMO

Correct me if I'm wrong...but on the05+ cars, the saleen "steering wheel" is just a mustang GT steering wheel with a saleen badge.

Well then I hope he just bought a badge instead of an entirely new steering wheel!

I am converting mine into the replica of the saleen barricade myself right now I just got done with most of my performance. now I am ready for exterior I researched body saleen body kits and stalker body kits by vis and material the body kit is made from is important for weather heat and cracking and bending so far the only saleen kit from saleen website or the American muscle.com saleen tpo kit is the way to go it is not cheap that's for sure so I am getting the saleen tpo kit as far as the center exhaust that will be my last thing I do. All the decals check we'd graphixs store online and amazon.com auto body paint job you will need and of course talk to your local police department to find out if it's ok to have every emblem replica due to 911 and police on the car might be a problem light bar as well. I am doing everything as a true replica in the state where I live at it is ok. I don't feel comfortable with bolting anything through my roof of my car so no light bar for me just hidden active lights in my headlights and taillights lights with throttle switch as long as I am not impersonating an officer then I am ok. Good luck.

Are you an archeologist?


Lol anyway...

Personally, if I were to do a Saleen conversion I'm not sure what I'd do as far as the body kit parts go. You can pay the premium price for genuine Saleen parts but I don't know if you've ever looked closely at one in person - fit and finish could be better, that's for sure. Kinda lame to spend that sort of $$ only to have it need a little massaging at the body shop. Other option is save money on a knockoff body kit which will probably need some massaging as well.
