    That you have done to your car that don't always get noticed. Everyone here can look at a Mustang and basically identify every substantial mod just by sight. But every now and then the little things that you had hoped would make your car stand out, or at least catch an eye or two, just go unnoticed. So post up the small things that you have done, here is your chance to point them out. :banana:

    I'll start

    Made Ford Racing decals for the spokes. These never show up in pictures

    I guess by now this is just played out here but I did this a few years ago in hopes of being different and have never had the first compliment on it other than when I point it out online. IRS swap:shrug:

    Sorry if this is a dumb thread. I'm stuck at home sick as a dog today

    If you had not said anything I would have thought that those stickers were factory! They look good to me.

    I noticed the IRS RIGHT away. I just didnt' want to be all joto and say "That looks "fabuluth!!" heheh. As mentioned, it's straight as can be and looks factory! Great job.


    I have this riveted into my engine bay. I like it better than the "typical" sticker that everyone usually gets:

    The SVT logo in the rear is off of a focus. When painted black, the original one is hard to read. Also, shined up the exhaust.

    Anyone know where I could get one of those BLACK Ford ovals for the rear?

    Thanks man, to answer your question, yes, and no. I love the ride comfort, even with H&R SS springs sans isolators and somewhat tired shocks the car is at least twice as smooth as it was with factory springs and the solid. Also, the 1 1/2 inch wider stance in the rear really helps achieve the look I've always wanted without using spacers. BUT, I do not like how the inside tire unloads on funny off camber turns and parking lots and such. And "the clunk" is something that I have had to get used to. I've done some reading and I know these things are fixable, but I don't necessarily have the money to do all these things one after the other. The car will be paid off very soon though and then it will be time to mod away :rockon:

    Very nice kingcato! I would love to do something like that on mine. There is a write up on sn95forums for it. I used to have these speedhuts, but they were just too blah for me

    Picture100.jpg

    Also, I painted my factory 98 wheels black and hyper silver. They looked outta control in the right light, but I eventually grew tired of them and sold them. The kid who bought them from me totaled his black cobra and turned around and bought a BAB 98 GT and put these wheels on it. He ended up cracking one of them and curbing another. He sold them for 200 dollars to another kid in town who put them on his V6 and wrapped it around a tree :( My girlfriend still hates me for selling them
