Very nice, very nice. Good to see another mustang/ranger owner lol.

Now add hood scoop emblems to your shaker, you'll get +50hp and tq since its actually functional .

They definitely add to the look of the back end that's for sure. They also make outlines.

For this ride - I don't think so. But who knows.

However, I've been drooling over a fully built engine & maybe another form or forced induction - Turbo


(Will be a longgggg ways down the line) - Like everything I do, I'm not a fan of just slapping something on.

I want to do it 'right' & in the correct order to make it as reliable as possible.

Thanks!

Yeah, I've seen those - however I'll pass on the extra emblems!

No use for that 'extra' horsepower! haha

Well then you will like what I did next.....


After that came a slightly larger cosmetic purchase:

Matte Black FR500 Style Wheels, 18x10
Matte Black FR500 Style Wheels, 18x9

I'm hoping I can use the classic tri-bar pony setup with the black background - but not sure if it will fit this wheel.

No not yet....it will be awhile before the wheels & tires are tossed on anyway.

As far as suspension goes - I'm flirting with going right to coilovers (front & rear) from the start.

Looks like Maximum Motorsports has a package for front & rear coilover conversion as well as their C/C plate.

Then at the same time I would look to grab the panhard bar & rear lower control arms.

Toss in the full length sub-frame connectors & it looks like I should be in good shape.

I didn't even have to suggest the FR500's and you read my mind as to what I'd like on it haha. Gonna look sweet!

I like the look better of the solid letters.

Logan, what do you think of this honeycomb panel for between the tail lights like the 1970 Mach-1's had.

Yeah - I'm not sure to be honest.

On some Mach 1's they look alright, but on others they seem out of place....
