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.

Nice SVT. How many folks have tried to get you to sell your wheels?

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.
