^^See that shinny silver tube on the front of the engine there? LOL


Is it paid for?
If not I'd hold off on doing anything for a few months. Get to know the car first, fix any problems it has now (mods generally compound problems). Once you get a feel for the car you'll know what has to be changed and what you can live with.

Black grill, black headlights, paint the wheels if ya feel like it, maybe just a little black on the indent of the spoke.
A good buff/wax, black looks soo damn nice when it's clean (for all of that 5 minutes).

haha yeh. these pics are when i first got the tint about a couple months back. i washed and waxed it yesterday. still looks good for now lol. i'm thinking bout keeping the grill i just replaced it. i used to have the black and chrome lip one that came with the car. i really want those black case headlights but 150 seems like a good bit when u dont got it. but im gonna maybe search for some used ones and open em up and paint the insides.

lowering springs are a relatively expensive mod that gives the car a great look, and improves handling.

When I put my SVT spoiler on, I just used 3M double sided automotive moulding tape, I tried finding a template, I got one but I couldn't get it to print out right on a normal printer. The tape will hold up fine. A drop would be a nice addition to you car. Contact mike at hilbish, he can get you a very good deal on an OEM 1.5" drop.

Crack those headlights open and paint em. Don't know what your thoughts about niteshade are - you might think about the tail lights and bumper lights. You may also consider laminex for the headlights as they can get pretty nasty after a while. Maybe paint the door handles and mirror caps?
There are lots of little inexpensive things you can do - they just take a few days to do them right.

I also agree with the earlier post, get the car paid for before any major engine mods are done.
