i kind of like the painted bullits better than the black and chrome ones :confused:
so whats up w/ the blue GT ?
@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.

silver piece i guess bezel? around the hvac headunit center piece, is that stock or was that painted?

Also are stock pedals the dark plastic or could they sort of look like chrome billet pieces? theyre chrome with holes in them iirc

Should be pedals, shifter bezel, dash thingy and the adjustable headrest...

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.. :yes
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. :D

thanks yeah if you're doing it outdoors i would definitely recommend the cards theyre perfect size for low wind resistance and solid enough to stay in place, thanks again, whats the status with yours last i read you had plans of SCing it?
