  1. I need to go down to the paint shop tomorrow to pic the color and size of my racing stripes for my 98.

    any ideas on color? the car is white and i want blue stripes.
    and what size should i do? and how wide of a space?

    thanks
     
  2. You just answered your own question :nice:. Size-wise, that's more of personal preference just like color.
     
  3. Just remember, stripes on your car is like certain parts of the human body.. bigger is not necessarily better! I personally don't like it when the stripes are super wide and very close together. I'd say no more than 5 inches wide for each stripe, and both stripes should fit inside the opening for the grille where the pony is. In other words they should not be so far apart that they would run over the headlights, and most of the chrome pony should be able to fit in the space between them. Know what I mean? At least that's my opinion. Oh, and paint them on, don't get decal stripes.
     
  4. id go with 8-10 inch stripes, 2 inches apart.. dear diary.. jackpot!
     
  5. If your mind is in the gutter, like mine is 90% of the time, I'd say EEEEWWW!!!:rlaugh:
     
  6. crazy ppl...lol

    well i just got back from the body shop. we decided the basic shade i want. he is gona contact ford to find what they use to see if it would be better than what we picked. so thats all taken care of.

    as for the stripes we went with 11" with a 2" gap. it should look pretty nice. we looked at the headlights and the lines on the bumber and used those as our guide. so it should flow pretty well. i also dont have my poor lil plastic chrome pony any more. i had to replace the whole piece that that thing attaches to and instead of finding the right tamper-proof star i just left it off and i think it looks better.

    now im on the hunt for a good looking grille insert and my plans for the future are...
    1. dual magnaflow exhaust
    2. 1.5" - 2" drop
    3. some cheap bullet replicas, torque thrust 2s, or somthing similar

    Thanks guys.
     
  7. sounds like a good call

    1. magnaflows rock, just make sure you get an x-pipe, not an h-pipe, its sounds WAY better that way
    2. new shocks/struts and cc plates with the springs
    3. mustangtuning.com
     
  8. do i NEED cc plates? i dont know much about suspension geo. so im not too sure i could set it up right.

    thanks for the help.
     
  9. if you drop it anywhere from 1.5" or lower, then you will definitely need them to properly set up your camber, plus you'll be able to set up everything the way you want. any alignment shop can adjust them for you.
     
  10. RACING STRIPS ARE FOR RACE CARS.. AND A V6 MUSTANG AIGHT A RACE CAR... ITS A SORRY EXCUSE FOR A CAR.. AND AN INSULT TO MUSTANGS

    ^Above post not made by me^
     
  11. its still not cool to be an ass hole
     
  12. WTF dude. delete your post.
     
  13. its bad enough that ur gonna make an ass out of urself but that line has turned u into a dumbass... twice.
     

  14. Even if you didn't write that it's bad enough you have the nerve to repost it in our forums. :mad: I agree with the above, Ass.


    TO joman2055

    Go retro one single stripe down one side of the car :rlaugh:
     
  15. You know, I don't go trolling in the V8 forums.. I guess he got tired of having his ass handed to him in the V8 forums by people with faster, better cars so he decided to swing through here and do a "drive-by." One thing I try never to do is be an insulting jackass; all it does is make people mad. And, one thing all of us V6-ers know already.. if it wasn't for the "insult to all Mustangs" V6, there wouldn't BE a Mustang today, since V6 sales are usually about 2/3 of all Mustang sales. Ford is in this to make a profit, and if it got rid of the V6, the Mustang line would be in serious trouble. With all the trouble Ford is having lately, everything has to pull its own weight or it gets the axe. No one wants a good V8 under the hood more than me, but still I appreciate what the V6 has done by greatly increasing sales and keeping the Mustang alive and profitable.
     
  16. Since I tried to be nice, and explain that it wasn't me that made that post, and you V6 idiots are still bustin' my ass... KISS MY ASS... V6's suck... I laugh at your odd sounding, weak performing, under achieving turds everyday!
     
  17. Well if it wasn't you then my comments weren't directed AT you. They were directed at the idiot who made the post. So kiss MY ass. :fuss:
     
  18. sir are you a henchman

    :bs:
     
  19. people please...

    WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU!?!? EVER HEAR OF GAS PRICES AND INSURANCE YOU IGNORANT IDIOT?
    IF I FOUND A V8 THAT COST ME 2500 AND I COULD AFFORD INSURANCE AND GAS FOR IT I THINK I WOULD HAVE GOT IT.
    NOW STFU AND GTFO!

    rant over. sorry, just had to get that out of my system.
