That has to be the most sinister looking bird I've seen. Very nice. Are the wheels painted or powdercoated?

Thanks for the compliment! Your car came out absolutely amazing, i was just checking it out the other day, made me drool at work! I have worked my butt off to get that car to what it is today. I wanted to drop it a couple inches but as you can see on the side skirts, i am already having clearance issues and scratching the crap out of my skirts which made me worry more about dropping it.

NJ, your car looks great, but I agree it needs a drop and some bigger tires, but again looks great.

The only reason why the tires arent larger is because they are brand new and came with the rims (my friend worked at saleen) otherwise i would have the right sidewall aspect ratio. But for now it will be normal height and smaller tires but trust me when those tires go bald, its going to be dropped and right aspect tires.

Thanks again for all the compliments!

I think they look nice on the LTD 2 . But I'd give it the Pro-touring look , rack and lower it and give it pipes out the side . Makes me miss my (old street racer) 77 THUNDERBIRD . I miss my BIG BLOCK !!!!

I like 'em on both. ( but you know the haters will always diss.... ) I'd love to see a shaker hood on the LTD. And the old school thick black side stripe.

I removed the grille and the chrome bar on the hood. I always thought it looked so stupid and ostentatious. After "smoking" the front lights, I think I'm happy with the way it looks. I'd like to have cut-outs in the bumper cover for some round driving lights, but I haven't yet decided.
