    Hey guys. Was sitting around tonight going through archives of my photos of the stang and just thought: "Wow, it's come a long way."

    When I brought her home I never knew a single thing about "car modding" or "blowers" and now look how far I've come.

    I'm curious if any of you guys have some before and after shots of your stang? I have some good camparison shots of what it looked like the DAY I brought it home and what it looks like now. If you have some of your own, please share. :)

    right now im re-doing the c-pillar scoops, im not totally satisfied with the look of the aftermarket ones, the scoop is a bit too overpowering and does not blend. the new ones will utilize the stock c-pillar panel, i will extend it and make my own scoop that wont be as overpowering as these, and will fit alot better (right now they squeak and rattle because theyre two-pieced, and dont utilize all the connection points).

    and FR500's will be ordered before springtime, i need new tires anyways.

    Wow, some nice work...

    Thump, that looks great, and helluva times!

    Ambo, your car looked pretty damn nice the day you got it, only got better!

    thomas......that's some major changes. I agree those pillar scoops need some toning down....you ever thought about wider rear wheels/tires? That front view, just seems like they're tucked too far in with all that body work going on. Look freakin awesome if they were flush with the fender.

    And to the rest, nice work....makes me jealous I had to get rid of mine.

    Like others have said, I bought it intending on doing pretty much nothing with it, possibly upgrading the wheels many years in the future but that was about it...a couple grand later I'm hoping i've fixed all the problems I got from the previous owner/accident as well as some go-fast mods, all thanks to you guys and some friends at home.
