Hello guys n gals!
It's been awhile since I've posted but I'm back with many updates... and yes, my 08 Mustang is just about complete.
I only have a few things left to fix and I'm done.
MY biggest question is... I bought a juggling Orb for my dash piece and I'm trying to figure out how to mount it into
the dash? (I still have yet to attempt to remove the stock dash piece). So any help would be greatly appreciated.
Tao... I tried to download your zip file on "how to" take apart the stock dash, but the file said it was removed.
Can you email the file to me? email@example.com
As for the Q&A on my car... I will say that I found my hood through VIS fiberglass on Ebay.. which costed $400 shipped.
It fits the standard/GT models, so you don't have to blow excess money on the GT500KR front end.
I also found a nice honeycomb grill for $75.. the only thing that is different, is that it still retains the stock driving lights.. however, I installed some 'cling on' tint to the lights, using a heat gun to mold it to the lights.
For the wheels.. I went with the 18" inch 2011 style pony wheels (closest to the SS wheels) and found a set for $400
on Ebay. (at the time SS wheels were $2K per set). So far I get compliments on the way the car looks.
I also had a metal-worker cut my stock springs for $100.. For the front springs he cut off 1 ring, and welded the bottom 4" inches to the perch (to keep them from popping out). And for the rear springs he cut 1 & 3/4 rings off.
The car sits and rides alot better, and with the 18" inch wheels I managed to retain some sidewall cushion.
(I will post some photo's here, or you can check them out on my www.Facebook.com/starcarsusa
Anyway, I look forward to any/all help that I can get.
Thanks in advance,
