I couldn't stand the "GT" on the side of mine. Once removed, I found it to be plastic.

Plastic.

Held on with tape.

Replaced my badges with very small, chrome, V8 badges

Your vert looks so sweet! That red/black combo looks really good and I like the spoiler too. Ordinarily I am not a hood scoop/spoiler guy but the scoop looks great too.

Nice meats on those wheels Maybe when you replace the rears, try another jump up in width? 275? That would look terrific from behind.

Are the pony badge fender key pins the same as the GT pins that align into the Fender?

I would guess they would be, because I do not think they would make 3 fenders, the V6 with no emblem holes, then you have the V6 with the pony package and pony emblems, then the GT with GT emblems.

Re: Couldn't resist showing off!

You know Munson1578, your ride is such a nice looking ride, one of the best I have seen, you really should post a few pics to your gallery, so that when this thread runs its course, we all still get to see your fine ride. I originally wanted a red vert, but got the black vert instead, and as partial as I am to my own ride, presently I think your color combo and overall look is superior even to mine. Reach around and pat yourself on the back for you did good on this one. I just hope that my ride is as nice looking when I am done with my mods.

Re: Couldn't resist showing off!

Thank you all for the positive comments. I'll try and post some gallery pics. This is my 1st mustang and I've really enjoyed the car and been excited to do the mods.

Cool Stripes, I like it. Are they painted or Graphics. If they are graphics, where did you purchase them. I wanna do my RedFire GT Vert with (i think in Silver), when I get it, it's an 07 on order. The only issue is I an getting the new GT Appearance package that include a factory Hood Scoop, and there are no graphics designed yet for that until it is produced.
Thanks:kooky:

Thanks, I am not real crazy about the "GT" emblems either and would prefer the "PONY" ones. Actually too bad they put the holes in the fenders, (just another place to :lock produce rust) or I would just keep it without any emblems.
