Smile 2 mini-photoshoots + new engine-bay pics

Installed the newly-received sound-pipe delete kit and went out for a drive ... along the way I found a couple of places I thought would suit the car well for some pics, the second one being a place I've seen many times before and always wanted to stop ... today I finally did.

The engine bay as it currently sits, waiting on the blue Boss coil covers to be installed (they're waiting on a mod before they're gonna be ready for install):

I think you're the first person I've encountered that has said that.

Car's looking great, the details count. I am looking forward to future progress.

Thanks I'll take that as a compliment

The car has a black cover over the chrome front grille "pony" emblem, black plasti-dipped front fender "5.0" emblems, smoke-tinted front-bumper marker lenses, color-matched third brake light (light paint cover so the light still comes through no problem), black-painted exhaust tips for the GT500 mufflers, new gray "Ford" oval decals on the inside of the rear side windows (they're kinda hard to see now but will be more pronounced once the window tint gets done, probably next week), and under the hood I've installed hood struts and removed the sound tube that Ford installs to transfer induction sound into the cabin on acceleration.

Thanks, and the tail lights have been a main point of "ooh's" and "aahh's" every time I show the car ... people love them, especially when they see them in action ... I have a video of them at night I posted on here before ... here it is again, maybe you'll change your mind ... lol

Thanks. I removed the sound tube mostly for a cleaner look under the hood. The sound inside the cabin is just about exactly the same without it, now that the GT500 mufflers are louder than the noise I was getting from that pipe anyway ...
