Well finally got around to making a build thread. I join the mustang world in October 2011. Bought a 2004 5speed comp orange Gt out of Tampa Flordia. Car was fully loaded with every option and clean as a pen with only 32K miles. It started right up and I took it for a spin as soon as it rolled off the trailer. The car had been parked beside something that had caught on fire and melted the bumper, headlight, mach 1 chin, and bubble the paint on the fender. So it need a little TLC to get her back to new.

Got a little lucky cause the car had already had some mods on it by the previous own. Had Flowmaster Catback (which sucked ass but better than stock), Billet pedals, K&N Cai, mach 1 grill delete, and a mach chin but it was half melted, and stagger bullitt's. Of Course I couldnt just paint the car orange with me being a body man. So I decided to make it stand out the best I could from other mustangs around town.

I was completley in love with the car but at the time I wasnt really into modding the car till one day my buddy convinced me to head to the drag strip for grudge wars. Ever since that day ive been hooked. Dont really have any pics leading up to my current mods but today with some help from Flyboy1292 I finally got my Blower installed. I went with a Paxton Novi 1000 (Thanks again to Flyboy), Cx Racing Intercooler, HPX PMAS MAFs, Vmp 3" tube, Tial Q, Division X Stryker 340lph, Vented Catch Can, and a Custom powerpipe

Just uploaded the video a little bit ago but everything checked out good with the setup so now it looks like ill be waiting till the 21st to haul the car to Lee at Blankenship Tuning and Performance. Also Dont hate on me about the ridiculous placment of the power pipe. Still waiting on Treadstone to Send me my 4" 90*. Would of jsut put the filter on the blower but that wasnt about to happen, just wanted to be on the safe side.

Nice snorkle. :shiftyeyes

Things really came together nicely! The 21st can't get here fast enough! I'm living vicariously through your car so the suspense is twice as bad for me, haha. :thumb:

If it is late enough in the day to where I can get there in time, I might do just that!

Yeah man, imagine all of that cold air you will get above the hood, lol. :naughty:

Nice looking car! Lee does great work, you won't be disappointed! Planning on having him tune my coyote when I go turbo
Thanks man, actully gonna repain the whole car once I get the saleen and rear bumper prepped. Lee dont a great job with my car. I got it tuned 2 weeks ago. Just havent got around to updating my build thread. Put down 354rwhp and 346rwtq @ 7psi. Didnt make as much boost as I was hoping for but Im still happy with the car for now

Got the first coat of primer on the spoiler, really was expecting a little better quality than what I got from AM.
After I blocked the **** out of it there was quite a few wobbles that needed fix so I threw a little mud on em.

Are you repainting it with the same stripe(s)?
Im doing away with the strip on the rear of the car and Im gonna paint the center in between the tail lights black. Gonna repaint the hood and instead of a white pin strip im gonna go with a black one on the the hood and front bumper.

I think it would look good if you switched up the front stripe like in the pic below and then continued it over the car instead of one huge ass stripe. Also it would use the grill as the outside edge instead of the inside edge. Good luck to you, stripes are a pain haha

Basically where the white stripe is im gonna do away with it and have a thin black pin stripe that follows the outer edge of the main black stripe. Pretty much like this except my stripe will be thinner and closer to the main stripe.

Well its been awhile since i've updated this, was about to get my car painted but decided to put that on hold since I lost my job, good news is I got another job with better pay and benifits :baller:. Decided to take the time today and smoke my tail lights. I used VHT night shaded, I just got done putting 4 coats on and i'm gonna let them dry then i'll sand them and shoot them with some clear.
