Here We Go, GT500 Conversion Pics

I picked up my car from the dealer about 2 hours ago...I just couldn't bare to stay away from her any longer. I have to say I am more excited now, than when I signed the papers to get her back in August. This has really turned my v6 into a looker. Matter of fact a lady in a Windveil GT almost rear ended some guy because she was more focused on looking at my front end instead of looking at the traffic in front of her. I would have felt bad if that had happened. I've decided I'm going to pick up some GT Satin Silver take-off rockers to replace the v6s as soon as possible. I just don't think the side flows the want I wanted it to since the dealer didn't paint the rear fascia to my specs.

Dual exhaust is getting ordered tonight (hopefully) just gotta decide if I should do true duals, y-setup, h-setup, x-setup, magnaflow, flowmasters....as you see I'm going to need some serious help on this.

Whenever I go back in to get my stripes painted, the radiator support (I think that's it) will get painted black so that every flows a little better.

The stock hood just adds a bit of edginess to the kit and I prefer it to the GT500 hood and while I'm still considering an aftermarket hood. the chances of me changing hoods has gotten a little smaller.

I'm not sure if I'm going to lower the car. With the kit and the chin spoiler, it sits pretty low as it is. I would love to eliminate some of the wheel gap but I'm afraid if I lower it (1" in the front and 1.5" in the rear) that I might have clearence issues with certain places, including my driveway so I might just go with bigger wheels and tires for now and see how that works out.

Total cost (including parts & labor) was a little over $3500.00 but in my opinion well worth it.

I would put the cobra in the grill and get the snake emblem that goes on the back and for exhaust go with h pipe with axlebacl slp loudmouth exhaust on it if its possible to configure a v6 like that many of us gt people have slp loudmouth axlebacks and they sound awsome My car sounds way better than a stock gt 500.

The wheels are going to get replaced soon enough. I'm going for 18" Mach 1 replicas that are a two-tone silver & black combination. I loved those from the first day I saw them and the only way I wouldn't do those was if I pulled the trigger on black bullitts.

The only badging I'm putting on the front is a running horse emblem. I said from the beginning that I wouldn't put any Shelby, Cobra or GT500 badging on the car and I plan for it to stay that way. I want my car to be a clone even a tribute if I dared go that far but not a poser that can't back up what I would proclaim it to be if I put on those type of badges. I have a tribar running pony badge that I was going to put dead center but unfortunately the center of the grille is curved slightly so the emblem won't sit flush...but it's too big to be offset (it's the emblem from the pony package Mustangs of +2005) so I don't know what I'm going to do with it. I really want a running horse emblem similar to the one found on the stock v6 but I haven't had any luck finding any places that sell them. If someone could direct to a website that would have it, I would greatly appreciate it.

your car is def the nicest v6 ive seen I think it came out perfect Im sure there is more stuff you want to do on it, its not hard to blow money on these cars but there worth it. Thats why I love mustangs there is so much you can do with them it just takes money I got to pay off my latest upgrades of my credit card before i do anything else. i probley will just get some dress up items for the engine compartment.

I had planned to get rid of the side stripes (still do) and have them painted at the dealer but since I am on a budget (and the dealership wouldn't give me an estimate on the labor and part costs they had to buy) I didn't want to risk going over budget as there are other things I want to get done to the car that I consider priority. I just decided to have the +2007 Mustang side tape installed (as a short term option) instead of getting them painted. The insurance adjuster included them in the price of my estimate (instead of the 2005/2006 Mustang side tape) so I just decided to upgrade. I got both sides for the price of one so I think I lucked out. In the future, I plan to have Sonic Blue stripes added to the car and Sonic Blue stripes on the sides to replace the Mustang side taping. I just can't see myself riding around in the car without the side tape...got too used to it.

I really respect that you're not badiging it up. I think what you've done is awesome and tasteful. You're getting the "spirit" of the Shelby without trying to be one.

Spend... spend!!!
