Don't put the covers on the tails, it really ruins the (very nice!) look you've done with the rest of the car.

The taillights aren't getting blacked out. They're getting tinted in that design...that way when I have the lights on the whole thing lights up instead of those three horizontal bars in the lights...

I appreciate the opinions, but bottom line...

My car, my rules :D

cant argue with that. but if your just tinting the lights then itll be ok. because its a big assed car and to make the taillights smaller would take away from that. but if you leave them looking the same itll be perfectly fine.

The three pics I showed are what the other guys did. All three are painted theirs...

I do like the look of it, but when the lights are on, only the two top inset bars light up (the bottom 3rd was for when they had amber turn signals...). I don't want that.

I plan on doing one coat over the entire light to make it a shade darker (ala Marauder) and then mask off the three bars and put probably 2 coats on, maybe 3.

That way I'll have the look I want, and I'll still have the whole light lighting up.
Same for the reverse lights...

i agree 100%. it makes the rear end look out of proportion
+1 I think smoke, dark smoke, or even blacked out would look better. I was never a fan of those 1994-1995 Mustang tail lenses.

Tail lights and reverse lights tinted...

Tail lights are subtle, depending on the angle the lights coming in...pics to come tonight...probably with more video. :D

Since it was nice out, I took care of a couple things...

For one, the engine bay was still a mess from my previous attempts of wiring the Marauder cluster in the car. Thankfully some High temp tape re-covered the new wire and the fixed screwups I made, hiding all the yellow wire...

Second, the engine bay was cleaned with some simple green. Looks pretty (no pics though...).

Third, my exhaust tips were covered in rust, so I crawled under the car and started sanding them, brought the shine back :D although I'll still hit them with this rust preventive paint I got just in case...

And finally I nite-shaded my tail lights like the S55 Marauder concept. It's subtle, but I wanted it that way...did the reverse lights as well...

That I have pics of...





And some pretty night pics...although I should've used my tripod for these...





And a new exhaust video... :nod:

I'm bored, what can I say? :dunno:

I just love the sound of a Mustang GT...errrr Crown Vic with the 4.6L. :D Seriously, I love how the modular sounds--especially with some X pipe and SLP goodness.

Although things will this weekend... :)

Not a lot has changed on the car, the foglights did but thats it...I don't plan on doing anything else to the car for a while...I have personal issues that take priority over the car right now...

But hey, look at how clean it is!




Oh, and two final videos of Memorial Day fun-ness...

Actually that looks like the Marauder intake...which is better than the stock Vic intake.

The Marauder Airbox and Police Zip tube are really all I need. They're the biggest (anything like a K&N FIPK or the like are just filters) for the car and they suck in more than enough air...

Hell I could supercharge my car tomorrow (if funds only allowed) and the airbox/tube setup would still the best application for the job...
