      I just wanted to tell you, you car looks TOTALLY awesome, I just love the GT500 front bumper setup, I was wondering how hard it was to make that change? I read your visitor messages and I saw that you said you payed roughly 1,700 for the kit.....was everything needed for the change in the kit? I also read your installation write up on the Agent 47 mirrors, great write up!! I ordered mine yesterday, can't wait to get them on :nice: Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me on the GT500 front end.

      nuttinbutstang,
      Most of my pics are on Flickr (kooldawg6). Feel free to browse at you leisure :-) The big rear tires do feel heavy, but having 4.10s really helps! After they're on the car a while, I don't notice the lack of performance UNTIL I either put the stockers or the 265" DRs back on!!!!!

      hi where can i check out all of your stangs pix? im in love with your suspension and tire measurements. i had a couple questions to ask u but i forgot what they were. im purchasing an s197 in the future i was just wondering how your stang handles in the freeway with those mods. do the rear tires feel heavy?

      It popped up a bit. One day I might get around to removing it and drilling the other two holes...maybe. It's been like that for nearly two years now.

      You will need many new parts with the GT500 front bumper. It requires new wheel liners, radiator cover, headlights, wiring harness, upper and lower grille and various other small parts (fasteners). I got the front end kit (minus hood and emblems) from Clevenger Ford out in CA for $1670 shipped! The hood is the Steeda street cowl. They don't advertise the height, but I'd guess it to be 2.5-3".

      Hey, GREAT tutorial on the rear spoiler. Question for you, which front bumper is that, it looks like a '10, real badass

      Thanks! LOL to your priorities decision!!!!! Both the mirrors and spoiler will reduce your vision, but IMO, it was well worth the trade off! Neither of them hinder my driving after a few weeks getting used to them.

      Just found you "how to" post on the mirrors...another great job!! Only one problem, now I have to decide on priorities...mirrors or spoiler or exhaust, or....

      Cool, Thanks for the info...BTW, outstanding "how to" post on the rear spoiler. Based on that post, I've decided to do the same. Time to spend some (more) money.

      Yes, those are the Agent 47 retro mirrors. The install was fairly easy. The only hang ups I had were trying to "pop" off the OEM glass from the motors without thinking it was going to break and pulling the wiring out of the OEM housings. Turns out I didn't have to remove the plastic internals...later saw a post where it's possible to remove the wiring without further dismantle.
