Summer make over

I found a nice set of 20" Blingz and swapped out my striped hood and decklid back to an all Grabber Orange car.Some dealer had a V-6 Pony car for the donor.
The wheels are 20x8 w/255/35 front and 20x10's w/275/35's on the rear.

Thanks all!

A customer at O'Meara Ford didn't want the Blingz on his 07' Cervini Edition.The wheels were offered to me at a huge discount($700.00).Really,I was in the wrong place at the right time.The front wheels came with new Nittos and I purchased a rear pair from Discount Tire from a family member.

I'm not sure about the hood.I've thought about the Cervini extractor, Eleanor, and the Steeda street hood. I'm trying to get used to an all Orange car :hihi:.

Any thought to putting on some Silver Horse "flush mount" quarter window louvers ? They'd go great w/ the vehicle which already looks N-I-C-E.

You also lost your hoodscoop when you swapped hoods for the plain grabber orange hood. I liked it better with the (albeit nonfunctional) factory scoop. And you're still running the bright fuel filler door, which combines with the roundelle between the taillights to make it look like it has two fuel doors. Those new 20" rims look like they have grey spokes. Didn't they match the grey accent paint on your old hood and rear panel?

I'm gonna get a CDC black out panel like I had on my 06'GT to eliminate the decklid emblem.And the wheels matched the argent colored hood. I don't miss the hood scoop at all.I Traded out the hood and decklid before these wheels came up 3 days later,who knew? :hihi:


...and Troon the flush mounted louver would be the only ones to consider but that is $450.00 later (Thats the pre-painted price not including the install.)

Those flush mounts really are nice but you're right Pat: e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e.
