Popped my Mustang cherry

Postby Hacker » Sat Dec 03, 2016 5:14 pm

I thought I would introduce myself having been lurking for a few weeks. I've had a few Corvettes over the years but always had a hankering for a Mustang but never got round to it. After a few years away from 'vettes because of kids, life etc I bought a C5 a couple of years ago and spent a fair bit of time modding it and using Custom Exotics to do the work (great guys by the way). I kept seeing this yellow S197 and have been lusting after it for about a year. To cut a long story short the 'vette sold last weekend and a couple of days ago I agreed a price for the Mustang which should be in my grubby hands in about two weeks once the buyer picks up my car.

I realise for some it is a Marmite car but I absolutely love it and it's going to be a long three weeks! I'll be making a few changes in time for the new season and I'm looking forward to getting out to a few shows and meets next year, I'm really into my detailing and I can see me spending a lot of time on this car.

Looking forward to meeting you guys.

Fuck! That is Marmite.

Think I've seen that around in various stages for time, but it's moved on a bit.

Welcome aboard anyway! Glad you lost the 'Vette. :D

Nice!

That's pretty yellow. Is that on air ride?

And great to have another s197er aboard. Makes a change from all these S550 newbs. ;)

Thanks Barry, yes it's on air ride and 22" wheels. The paint is a custom pearl colour that looks superb, pics do not do it justice.

Thanks!

The first change is to swap out the rear lights for Raxiom Gen5 which I have already bought and are with Nathan at Brightlight Customs, I've also ordered the S550 rear decklid illuminated badge for X-Lume which I will adapt to fit (http://x-lume.com/products/mustang-decklid). I'm considering removing the rear spoiler and fitting the Cervini ducktail but undecided at the moment until I look around and see what else is out there. There will also be some some painted stripes in gloss black but I can't make my mind up whether I want two stripes or a single wider one. There might be a few interior changes as well. :D

Does it act as a brake light, or running light.
