    I think the car in the add looks better than an 05. Why? does that mean you don't like it.

    I'm not doing it, i think it's silly. Just wanted opinions.

    I think it makes it look like a Mustang II! Seriously, it looks forced, and being a car designer who has designed aftermarket bodykits and ground effects kits for SEMA cars - It just doesn't look like it fits the the car. The overall look just doesn't work.

    The law doesn't allow enough tint for me to have to be seen driving that thing. That thing fell through the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

    Simply put... :notnice:

    Its not that bad. If i ever smack a gaurd rail real hard i might order one. 800 much less than factory replacement parts. Is that factory hood? I have 4 in cowl to clear my eaton. Fun to have car thats a little different.

    I never checked the price, for the 05 conv. that 800 was for a saleen looking kit for my 97, with the 99+ apperance. with 2 more pieces, and being brand new, I bet it costs alot more

    I saw the full page add in the latest issue of MM&FF for this kit which didnt look half bad, but when I browsed to the website and saw all the pictures of that silver mustang with the actual kit I didnt like it as much. I think the add had some photochop done to make look better. I think the part I found unappealing is the reuse of the stock hood creates a strange edge along the front nose.

    it did look better in the ad. it actually used an 03-04 cobra in the add and it looked like an 05 with diff lines. that one makes it look ugly. def. some photoshopping of the car.

    Actually Mustang II's are much more attractive than the PMP kit.
    I've been kinda looking at my 04 thinking I bet I could swap on the entire front end from an 05, and it would look sweet, and then I see the ad, then look at the website, NASTY.
    Looks like Gladney Brothers found someone to take over what inventory they had and use it up other than just throwing it all away.
    Gladney Brothers was the company that produced body kits for Fox body stangs that (they thoughth) resembled classic Mustangs.
