Looks very good. May be add some clear corners in addition to some new rims and tires?

finish the gfx kit or take off what you currently have...
IMHO...if you are planning on getting larger wheels id keep the gfx and get the front to complete it. but if your sticking with the stockers(which look great with white letters) then get rid of the gfx because it makes the car look really heavy and looks like its slouching.

other than that id say-
clear corners
tinted taillight
shorty antenna
get new black vinyl strip on door pillar
fiberglass hood

So far so good!

glad you were looking at the lawn and not the car..

Thanks guys!

yeah i really cant decide on the gfx from some angles it looks great and then others it does make the car look like its sagging.

will be getting bigger tires in the back in near future.
and definetely painting or getting new black door strips.

rims are farther down the road. but prob going with some chrome saleens when i get there.

i think stock hood for now, if i do end up with the SVO blower then id like to keep the hood stock

thanks again for the advice. ill keep all of ya updated on whats comin.

Definitely get a set of chrome Saleens in 18 inch! Do the silver striping along the horizontal like the Limited Editions have.

I like the car and the Indy 500s. Did the white flake off or do they need a little cleaning?

The front needs something, either the rest of the kit or maybe a Mach 1 chin splitter. I know some of the Taurus guys like them...

That last one is my favorite angle on these cars, except your front wheels are turned the wrong way.

You at least had the best looking car in that parking lot!

The car just looks unfinished without the front valance.

lol thanks i think so too but those s13s are pretty damn fast the all blacked out one has some kinda ricer swap its pretty quick and weighing next to nothing.. the rest of them i didnt have much trouble out running.

yeah i know it needs the front piece bad but cant afford to put one on and def cant afford to pull it all off cause the paint is bad underneath the gfx.

Well I took off the gfx today... and I'm kinda thinking I like it off better. I will be re-doing the exhaust so I need some input on what I should do with it like turn-downs, side exits, etc. Thanks!













I love this angle on her:

That's what I'm thinking, it doesn't look like its sagging in the back.

I was really thinking about some side exhaust exits then I read up on it and it looks like I would have to take out the gas tank to actually do it right.. that blows. Anyone have pics of side exhaust? I've seen the white 92/93 SC lookin one -can't afford to do that..

Looks 10x better with that crap off of it.
Id keep the exhaust out the back. Side exhaust can be cool if done correctly and even then im not sure if it really looks that much better.

Im just a big fan of some nice simple rolled tips coming out the back. dual of course.

Yeah the only side exhaust that really looked good was on that one on the 92/93 white bird with the ground effects. I've been looking at a few of everyone's pictures on here and nothings really grabbed me.

I'm kinda thinking about cutting out part of the bumper and setting chrome tips in there kinda like the mustangs.. any ideas?

OH so I randomly decided to get my car painted today, I have some extra cash flow coming in and my Dad is helping me out some for making good grades at Tech this year. So I dropped it off at a local paint shop that has done some pretty decent work. I get her back Friday CANT WAIT!

Thank you!

Same color, well almost the same. According to the owner there I had the 3 stage pearl paint job (which I thought only comes on the white birds but guess not) He said that would be an extra $800 to do that and while it looked nice I didn't see the point. I really wanted to go for a gloss black like 91bluecoupe Tbird but I backed out on it.
