The paint is faded and the last thing Iím gonna do is paint it either the new ford ruby red (which is similar but more vibrant) or redfire... car will be all one color and may even strip the emblems.. not sure yet
and I will be adding Mach sail panels and a cobra front bumper and hood

leather may be good for a crusier but if you wanna a go fast car you wont slide around as much with the cloth interior lol I like the s197 GT badges too. those mach 1 pieces and cobra bumper will be nice too

Iíve had many different ideas of which way I want to go from here but I am open to suggestions Iíd like to be around 400hp, itís just a street car I donít plan on dragging it.. if anything Iím a road course type of guy and I like mountain back roads.. I want it to look good run good and sound good, actually itís not too bad the way it is but Iíd like it to be a little meaner

im just an amateur myself and I don't know a whole lot. ive only done intake, tune, & exhaust on my stang. if your cars not tuned that's a good way to wake it up to noticeable changes. nothing too crazy but you can feel a good tune.

oh yea itís tuned I have the two tunes that come of the SCT programmer plus I have a extra one... it really runs good for what it is... my engine has about 35k on it, I donít know it all when it comes to mustangs but I have learned a lot about them through reading and trying things and my speed shop has taught me a ton about them
