2004 SVT (slow progress)

I've been off and on for awhile now. I've also finally made some progress on installing a few parts I've had and doing a little work. So I decided to show my progress. Hope you like it. Now it's still a work in progress so it's not shinny or anywhere near done.

This is how it looked when I bought it:

This is how it looks now:

Sooooooo much better without 4x4 status and the euro front bumper. Yes it is shaved too.

Specs as a of now.

Magnaflow cat back.
Orp. ( still need to install, just need to get a quiter exhaust)
Euro front bumper, shaved.
Ford accessory side skirts. (Next thing to be installed)
Poly mounts.
Eibach front and goldline rear lowering springs. (60$ off of Craigslist)
RS wheels. (Just did a cheap refinish job on them)

Finished RS wheels with new rubber.

ALOT of people want my wheels. I actually thought about selling them a while back but now that I've got the curb rash off them and all one solid color I have fallen back in love with them. The funny thing is I bought the car with them on there, pretty good find if I do say so.

Honestly I don't really like the euro rear bumper that much. There are some I do like but they are out if my price range. As far as exterior mods go. Next is to install my ford accessory side skirts. Then I want to get the sap rear diffuser and euro tails. Possibly a new hood to. Other than that the exterior is pretty much done, beside a paint job of course, back to sonic blue.

Also need to pull out the rear spring isolator to drop the rear a little more. Kinda sits high back there.
