    looks good, I noticed to hide the Cobra rear bumper cover that they removed all side trim

    Yeah, it's nice, but that Cobra cover has got to go. It looks out of place without some kind of side skirt on the car, and even with the side trim gone, it's still noticable (to me anyway) that the trim strips do not match.

    Looking good! I like the Bullit wheels on it.

    the car looks good, one thing : how is that an 86' SALEEN front valence?

    personally, other than the mouldings being different, i think the rear valance looks good, even without any side skirts. the shape of it flows well with the lx (skirtless) body. now if it were a GT rear, it would look more out of place, since the gt kind of hangs down lower (or appears to)

    Wings West makes one that goes under the body line for an 87-93 LX...I wonder if that would line up, I do not see why it wouldn't...and I am thinking since I need to paint my new hood anyways.....

    That's a nice looking interpretation for sure. There are a few things that bug me however. The cobra rear cover/wing, they just don't 'fit' to me. I'd rather see a 3pc 79-83 or 1pc 84+ spoiler on it. I would also like to see the 'add on' type cobra cover like mentioned above (or this one and a 85/86 one made into one) so that the trims match, and the original type LX molding installed on the side of the car, painted body color of course.
    Painted (other than satin black to look original) fan shrouds bother me too for some reason, i dunno why though.

    Other than that, body wise it looks very nice. I like the "bullitt" cut out in the hood graphic, that was a nice touch. The intake plaque is also neat.

    Does the interior seem like it was repainted a lighter shade of gray with darker headliner/carpet to anyone else? I'm liking the gauge surround too.

    overall, I give it a thumbs up though, nice car.

    The Cobra rear bumper cover doesn't look bad. I don't care much for the wing, or for it being a hatchback...

    The trim should match. However, I don't think the Cobra ground effects are really needed...

    I like the color, and I don't generally like green cars.

    I don't care for it really.

    I'm sure that it is done right and all. But it just does not look right. It is near a aero swap to me anyway.

    I think a clean 86 GT looks better all stock than that one.

    IMHO anyway.

    Loose the spoiler... the '01 Bullits didn't come with one. Still, it's one sharp car.

    Is it me or do the Bullitt wheels seem like the "perfect" wheel for 79-93 Mustangs? If I did not have so much money into my ROH wheels I would probably go for these.

    I strongly disagree with their choice of rear bumpers.

    Wow, all that critisizm and NO ONE mentions that the BBK chrom cold air pipe think matches about as well as if that car had neon pink wheels?

    I usually hate those, but this case is worse then usual. Hell, there is not even a single thing polished on the car. Yet there is that huge chrome tube that matches nothing taking up half of the engine compartment.

    Nice work detailing the intake, too bad no one see's it unless they actualy get distracted from the chrome of the engine compartment.

    Jeez, paint it black or green or something.
