Changing the look of the Silver Bomber again!

Well, I decided to get rid of the fr500s and go for a more subtle wheel look by changing out the rims to a stock set of fanblades (the fanblades will be going to the powdercoat shop to paint the inner parts smoke) and I have ditched my custom gt takeoffs for a PYPE BOMB exhaust and change the look of the chin spoiler, but that too changes by friday when I am installing a CDC chin spoiler (trying to tone down the front a little). Also, on friday I am putting my CHE lower control arm relocation brackets. Later down the road is new gear set (debating going to 3.55 or reinstalling another set 3.73) and window tint. Posted some before and after pics. I think this is what I love about owning a mustang so much. The possibilities are endless in customization. What do you guys think? Be nice I am sensitive:p

I honestly like your previous looks more. The FR500 rims look awesome.

Thing is guys the car has always been lowered. The springs hadn't settle yet in the before photo and the tires were 275s too thin to fill out the wheel ask. I really liked the fr500s but they were staggered and the cost to replace tires and not being able to rotate them killed it for me. My car is my daily driver. Once I put the new chin spoiler on I think the new look will come together.

With staggered rims the car was definitely planted better in turns and launches too, but the ride was heavier. With my rims the car feels lighter and my brakes aren't being killed and it just flat out flies when accelerating.

If you want to tone down the front, you should tint your headlights. Those dual lights just scream "HERE I AM LOOK AT ME YAY!!!!"

"tone down" means, less aggressive and smoother lines. i love the headlights the way they are.

Looks great otherwise, but the fan blades ruin the rest for me
