This right now is the plan most likely for long term exhaust -> would just be swapping stock midpipe to mac pro


mac pro ^

this is with stock midpipe

@green lol yeah me too, i think its partially because theyre very played out and its just nice to have something different, i think they all black w/ chrome lugs and centercaps just look more sinister

@mike About to update that post, just picked it up.

Exterior mod list.. i'm thinking a flat black theme

add mach 1 chin
flat black decklid panel
maybe flat black bumper inserts
possibly paint saleens flatblack (i'd really like to add a SB ring/lip around them)
a lot of TLC on detailing the car
maybe do the black billet fuel door? i dont think theyres a flat black one so might get and repaint, i dont really like the way stock fuel doors look painted the chrome pieces in the billet aftermarket are what make those to me.
One of the exhaust tips needs to be adjusted possibly switch to a different tip, dont really care for these
tint... 5%..or 20%.. TBD
Possibly smoke headlights (not too dark)
Delete spoiler if not paint it flat black
Paint calipers red..or maybe sb or black
if fortunate enough to come across an 03 cobra bumper..
paint tire lettering?
rear louvers

I love the method you used for plasti-dipping your wheels (I may do this if I can find stock bullitts). The GT looks great, good luck with it.
