How would you? I'm in the process of a forged 4v swap. And until then my shop is done I was thinking over some exterior mods... Now I know it's all about person preference but id like to hear your opinion?

I've never been a fan of cloning so I though what if I take something unique from the different models spanning through 99-04?

I own a 2001 true blue gt... But it'll be far from a gt once the 4v and suspension are in place! Lol soo if it has the balls of a true dohc doesn't it deserve to wear some ballsy attire? Or does sleeper have the ultimate vote here????

Either way. I bought the car already paired with an 03-04 cobra hood. Everything is standard GT so like the title states how would you incorporate different stangs into one? What different Roush,saleen,cobra, bullitt and GT parts would you use to pull off a unique and great looking car.

Im thinking
03-04cobra hood
Stay with the gt front bumper
Mach1 chin apoiler and grill delete
03-04 conbra side skirts
Saleen style spoiler
Mmd rear windshield louvers
Mmd side louvers
Painted gloss black decklid
Smoked tails

To get the ball Rollin

Personally I would say:
Bumper: 99/01 or 03/04 Cobra bumper
Skirts: Bullitt or 03/04 Cobra skirts
Rear Bumper: 03/04 Cobra
Spoiler: Saleen 3 piece or none
Sail panels: Bullitt or 96-98

That's my opinion. Bullitt looks are pretty on point on their own.
01 cobra bumoer would be great. Don't know why am or Lmr don't make it yet...

Me really considering deleting the spoiler... The cobra wing is nice to but not worth it right now

Thanks for the input!

nothing looks better than a mustang with the following parts
99-01 cobra bumper
03-04 cobra mirrors
03-04 cobra rear bumper shaved letters
mach 1 hood with shaker system
bullitt/cobra side skirts
03-04 cobra rear bumper shaved
chrome/black chrome Saleen or fr500 rims
this is what i plan on doing to my mustang when i can find all the parts and save enough money :)

I personally think spoiler deletes look like **** on our NEs. Just doesn't look right. I'd get a duck tail.

I think true blue is one of the best colors out there.

I have a redfire 03 & this summer did the following

-Gt emblems shaved on the front fenders
- 01 cobra front bumper
-cervinis cobra r hood
- bullitt side scoop deletes
- 03 cobra side skirts
- bullit deck lid with shaved emblems

I went back & forth on cobra mirrors but decided that with tinted windows the black mirrors flow nice.
I also went back & forth on a shaved 03 cobra rear bumper. The people who have done it say the fiberglass ones are junk. I ended up keeping the stock one.
I picked up a mach 1 hood with scoop. I went round & round deciding on that or a cobra r hood.

Your car looks very nice as is. Finding/buying all of the body parts listed above took awhile & cost a pretty penny. I would keep it as is & just do little touches (please no louvers)

Over this window mine will be getting 03/04 cobra mirrors, 3in extended cowl hood, and an 03/04 cobra front bumper. I am already wingless and searching for the cobra side skirts. Then I'll be done. Also got a set of Pontiac Grand Prix GT Emblems. I like them better so we will see how they look. If I don't like the look on the mustang I will go with the tri bar emblems because I'm sick of my stock gt ones.

Personally I think that the GT skirts look the best in person. Cobra skirts and Bullitt skirts just don't look like they fit right in person to me.

I think everyone knows what I'm fond of. Lol. Cobra stuff is too common on these cars. Branch out and look into saleen and roush. Cdc had some neat stuff too but I don't know if it's still on the market. I do believe that the 03-04 cobra rear bumper is the best though. If I could get a shaved rear and accommodate the rear roush valances I would totally do it on my car

Seems like you guys aren't against cobra cloning lol
No one has a problem with Cobra body parts. But most have a problem with putting Cobra badges on a GT. It doesn't matter what you do to your car it will always be a GT with a GT VIN number.

I think a balanced look is important. I've seen very aggressive hoods and front bumpers on otherwise stock cars. They look like they have a thoroughbred front and a donkey rear. Not a good look.

I went a different way with my car but since you already have a Cobra hood then I'd suggest:
...99-01 Cobra front bumper cover. I like it a lot better than the 03-04. I'm not really a fan of the Roush front bumper cover. I like the Saleen front bumper for a more aggressive look but I really hate the Saleen rear wing. I think the Roush Stage 3 wing would look good with the Saleen front bumper cover.
...Stock side skirts and side scoops. I don't think it worth the money to change them.
... With the stock or 99-01 Cobra front bumper cover I like the 99-00 rear wing moved back 2". I believe that is what is in the AM picture you posted. You could probably pick that up cheap at a salvage yard. I do not like the duck tail or shaved wing look.
...Stock rear bumper cover. I really don't care for the 03-04 Cobra, Roush or Saleen rear bumper covers. The 2001 Cobra is OK but not worth the cost and with it you'd have to shave the letters.

P.S. I wanted subtle changes for my car so I went with small cowl, stock front bumper, Mach 1 grill delete and front wing, and the stock rear wing moved back 2". The only thing else I might do is to shave the side scoops.
