Foose Bumperettes

I saw these when ordering my Foose hood and scoop. I'm interested by them, but there the sort of thing that I think I'd need to see in person. Definately would add to the retro styling.

I think I'd have to pass on those. To me it's in the same category as the chrome door handle and mirror covers. Just my $.02, but to each his own.

Actually, while I usually tend to agree with stlwagon, I'd at least have to take a double take at that. I don't care for the door handle covers or mirror overlays, either. I generally don't like gaudy add-ons, but I'd definitely have to look into that one. I'd have to see those in person.

OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.

No thanks guys, that is not appealing at all. Sort of chops the great lines of the Mustang in half...

Same here. But I would still like to see them in person. How do they go on? 3M tape like most of the window scoops and such do?

I have to agree with the other comments that it just gets in the way of the beautiful lines of the car. Now if the whole friggin bumper was chrome!!!!

Yuk! The bumperettes add too much 'bling' for me -- I like my mono-colored Torch Red GT.

I'm not even sure about what exactly I'm looking at here... Are they just 'chrome' add-ons for the bumpers? What's the point of that? I'm definitely not into the random add-on/stick-on pieces for the Stang, except for maybe a nice set of 1/4 window louvers.

They are there to replicate the original Mustangs. Sort-of like those fake looking stick-on louvers.
