Okay guys, here are the rules! Post all the "mini" mods you have done to your Stang, exterior to interior to performance - But... You must do the following!
  • Give a price - a guestimate is fine! NOTHING MORE THAN $100 TOTAL (per mod)!
  • Post pictures! That's practically the point of these things!
  • Links are jolly good, but not required.
:bigthumbsup

(Also, try not to repeat exact mods as someone else... If everyone posts painted calipers, this won't be to fun now, huh? ;) )

You can also ask questions, and comment on things as well. But... I don't think we all want to see "DIY Pedal Covers" only to see "Yeah I put them on and it was $10 and they look good. :shigrin "

That's no good! Quality stuff here everyone! :gringreen


What we want: Door pins, custom painted radiator covers, trim, headlight covers, grills, etc.

What we DON'T want: The take off mufflers you got off of ebaY for cheap! Or those fuzzy dice you put on your rear view mirror (sorry dudes! ;) ), etc.


I think this should be cool! There's nothing like inexpensive mods, for a rather expensive car.

Let the mini-mod festival begin! Woot!

I'll start this off with some cool stuff I did to get the ball rolling! I won't talk to much. promise! ;)

Billet Aluminum Door Pins: $8
I got these off ebaY new for like $8 shipped. They're tiny but look awesome, like they were meant to be there! Other sites sell them too, just look around.

"Billet" Painted speaker and shifter trim: Like $1 ha
I figured - What the heck! These won't cost much to replace. I got a can of silver spray paint enamel for interior/exterior ($3) and sprayed them down (took them off first of course!). I didn't sand them down, clean them, or prime them, and they look AWESOME! I now have the look of billet aluminum - And for the cost of new aluminum speaker rings and aluminum shifter bezel - I just saved about $170!

Painted Calipers: $16
This isn't quite an easy thing to do... Oh wait, yeah, it was! The kit was a "Duplicolor" painting kit sold at Checker, but most auto stores with have it. It's $16, but includes brake cleaner, which you need. We took the brakes off the rotors but left the brake lines connected. It took 2 days to do, maybe 6 hours altogether. But it was my first time even taking the wheels off - It can be done in less than half that amount of time (we painted ALL around the caliper though - recommended). Let them dry for around 24 hours before going for a long drive. The fronts are perfect 4 months later, and the rears need a couple little touch ups.

ebaY Oil Separator: Altogether about $30
I decided to take the plunge... It works! The total cost was about $30. I got the can from ebaY and bought hose and clamps from AutoZone and Checker. Install was easy... Here's a write up I did on it (more pics & info there). Clicky.

Door sill sticker inserts: Around $10
Very cheap mod for like $10 from AmericanMuscle. They look cool and complete the sills! They are little stickers & are removable.

3rd Brakelight "MUSTANG" Blackout: Around $6
I personally think this is very cool. Not everyone's cup of tea... Its a sticker. But hey, it's like $6 from AmericanMuscle! & its not boring old red now! :gringreen

Magnetic Blackout Panel: $30
For $30, its not bad. You can get it on AmericanMuscle. I'd highly recommend a higher quality piece from CDC - That's what I'm going to do ($60-70). This is basically a kitchen magnet. :(

Wheel accessories: Around $58 total
I got all these things off of AmericanMuscle to dress up my stock wheels until I can upgrade them. Black lugs: like $20; 4 black GT center caps: like $30; Mustang Pony valve cover caps: $8.

12" Black Shorty Antenna: $14
I got this for like $14 off of AmericanMuscle as well. Get rid of the stock lightning rod! :shigrin
