Ok, so I've always heard good things from AmericanMuscle, and finally ordered some things from them yesterday. Can't wait to get them in and on the car! :D

Black Bullitt Style Mustang Fuel Door
Mach 1 Mustang Grille Delete Kit
Mach 1 Grille Delete Frame - 3rd Piece
Mustang 3rd Brake Light Decal
Dupli-Color Brake Caliper Paint Kit - Red
14-inch Fixed Black Antenna

I also ordered some VHT Nightshades on ebay. :)

And I'm working on another special project for the interior, should have the rest of the parts in this week for it, and will post pics if everything turns out ok. :cool:

I will post some pics when I get the stuff in... I went with 2-day shipping because I would like to have it all on by friday. There is a car show here on saturday I would like to attend :D Unfortunately, I've got the e-mail saying they've recieved my order, but not one that says its been shipped...:(

standard shipping is 2 day shipping for me :D but that might be because I'm in a neighboring state...lol

I just ordered suspension parts yesterday, and they'll be in tomorrow :cool:

lucky :mad: lol, it's an estimated 3 days with UPS for my state.

I noticed I didn't receive an e-mail stating that my parts had been shipped, so I called a few minutes ago, turns out my grill delete is out of stock, and usually takes 2-3 weeks to get in :(

They are going to ship my other parts today tho, maybe they will still make it in time for the car show Saturday :D

as for the special interior project, everything is going good so far, and I estimate I will have the parts in and completed pics up by tomorrow night :cool:

what part of the grille delete did you get? the whole 3 peice set?

kind of curious of what the ones from AmericanMuscle are like... cause I got mine from Stangmods, but it didn't have the little lip that holds the bottom peice to the bumper like they show in this video... How To Install A Mach 1 Mustang Grille Delete - Installation Instructions at AmericanMuscle.com
I had to use double sided tape, which was a pain in the ass to get to stick to the bumper without showing in the crack...

plus the whole thing didn't fit very well at all... like it wasn't wide enough... pissed me off :mad:

Itali stang... Mine was like that as well, but rather than use double sided tape I laid down a heavy bead of silicone, pt the delete in place and put a little weight on top of it to hold the front edge down good and tight over night so the silicone wouldnt squeeze out or show. looks perfect.

Yeah, I got the whole 3 piece set. It was an extra $35, but I think it will be worth it. I'll be sure to post detailed pics of everything with it, and the install.

I believe the third piece is the black part behind the pony, not the part on the bumper your talking about.

Gonna look sweet! Personally, I love rear black out panels on red cars. They look sexy with tinted tail lights
Thanks! I plan on having a blackout panel made from vinyl in the next couple months. :D

am is a real good place to buy from,u will love the delete more than anything other than a chin spoiler
Thanks, I was really looking forward to getting it (already took the stock grill off in preperation ;) ) but it looks like the delete will have to wait a few weeks :(

I would really like to have the chin spoiler also. I might see about ordering one in the next month or so, when I have some more money, lol.

hm, maybe I should just sell my sixxer :tomato and get a mach 1... the 4V would be nice :D

:eek: now that's an idea...:yes
or get a Mach 1 and keep the sixxer till the 2014 stang is released, and trade the six in for one of those.

2003/4 Mach 1 and 2014 stang :cool:

Well, from what they've done in the past, I'm going to assume, yes. But it will be the 50th anniversary, so I figure there will be some special editions :D which is what I would like to have. Could be wrong tho :dunno

As for the AM parts, they are scheduled to arrive today. I can't wait to get them in!!! Until then, I'm going to see about cleaning my car for the show, got lots of work to do!

Hope to post pics of the interior sometime today, if not, then definately by tomorrow night guys. I love the way it has turned out so far :eek:

Ok, so I got the stuff from AM, and VHT nightshades in on friday. I still haven't tinted the tails and side markers, and I've still got to put on the brake caliper paint, and the grill delete was out of stock .... but I did get the antenna and fuel door on, lol.

I know I know, I still haven't posted pics, I have some on my phone, and camera, I will try to get them up sometime today.

Didn't end up putting the car in the show after all, lol. Decided to wait till I had more things done.

Ok, Sorry about the long overdue pics, not the best quality b/c they were taken with my phone, but here they are. I will get a better one of the fuel door and short antenna today. still haven't got the grill delete in :( and haven't had time to do the tint or paint the calipers. Hopefully soon tho...

If anyone has any questions about the lighting, feel free to ask. I took plenty of pics while doing it :D
