Hi everyone,
I've just joined this forum and I was wondering if anyone had any tips or suggestions on how to do so. I have the Saleen side skirts and I am in the process of buying the front and rear bumper. If anyone has any thoughts or knows of anywhere I can buy Saleen parts for a good price, please let me know. Thanks!

ordering directly from saleen could be expensive. try to order parts from a reputable ebay store, seller, or vendor.

also be prepared to do a lot of fitting...from my experiences first hand and with friends cars saleen body panels almost always do not go right on with out some heating or modification

I've been thinking about turning it into a Cobra instead because it's alot less money for the parts. Any thoughts about that?

I'd worry about performance before looks...

Well I already have a few things done under the hood for extra HP (exhaust, intake etc..) but not Cobra parts. I wanted to start with the looks because that is what people will see first. Plus, I need to get my car painted... so I don't want to paint it befor I get the body kit and have to paint it again afterward.

kinda gay you want to make your car into something its not, but whatever.

why not get just like a steeda front bumper/splitter, maybe a saleen, or steedawing, and some rims to set it off.

you can put whatever body kit on your car you want, but you still wont have a cobra, or saleen, you'll have a GT your obviously trying to pass off as a cobra or saleen.

i dont think making it a saleen is as bad as making it a cobra...after all saleen is an aftermarket parts company for the mustang that just happens to sell fully done cars as well...

Putting a saleen body kit on a car does not mean he's trying to pass it off as the saleen. The saleen body kit looks much better than stock especially on the 94-98's. Plus its about the only body kit you can buy that doesnt look all ****ing riced out. Dont get me wrong I wouldnt badge is saleen or put the saleen graphics on the side (cuz i have the kit and i didnt) but saying dont get the saleen body kit because it means you're trying to pose as a saleen is like telling half the ****ing guys with 99-04 cars that putting a chin spoiler on their car is posing as a mach 1

+1 as long as you dont badge it as a cobra or saleen than it doesnt matter what bodykit it has the cobra and saleen look better than a GT so why not make it look good, Bodykit does not make a cobra fast the engine does! So do her up and post pics
