Default CruizinKev's 1998 Mustang

Hi there,

this is my 1998 Mustang (V6 Auto).

Here it is what it looked like when I bought it december 2007 (crappy pics from the pre-owner)





the car had a true dual exhaust with dynomax mufflers and 3.5" tips.

..later I pulled oft the ugly 18" rims and put the waffles back on,





..few weeks later smoked headlights came in and I also installed some tokico HP blue, lowering springs, MAC catback (true dual) and the B&M hammer shifter..




..finally the 19" wheels came in:






December 2008 my neighbour crashed into my car:




My neighbour's insurance payed good and so I decided to paint my favorite Ford color: Dark Shadow Grey

Wow, that's the best V6 in your bodystyle I've ever seen! I would enjoy maybe 03 Cobra rims more, but the color was perfect! Great job!

gauges wasn't easy to get! first I found a gauge design shop in austria that designed the Mach 1 style for me. I had to scan my gaugefaces for them so they could do it. when I got the faces from the shop I had to do lots of things by myself. had to cut my old stock gauges to complete the new. cus the new faces only had the white parts you see in the pic. That means no turn signal control lights and the other things for handbrake and these other marks. Also need to cut the holes for the arrows and pins. After all I had to add EL-foil (that "plasma" light) to get the smooth white lightning. Also added red needles from a new edge speedo.. I spent a lot a lot of hours to get that but I love it!

also looking for a V8 swap: 4.6 Crown Vic in my 1998 3.8? (click)

DSG looks great on an sn95. You've really turned that car around. I would love to see an sn95 painted Azure Blue with a shaker and Mach 1 wheels and stripes.

It's a reflector, I am pretty sure they are required in Germany.

Also with all though pictures and progress you should make a cardomain. You'll get a lot of attention over there, add me if you make one.

Fantastic job on that car. Looks way better then before. And I think the rims work with your car very well and its different. Just needs some more HP now!

Looks awsome. I was wandering why u would ruin your bumper with a reflector that looks like it was put in half assed but I guess it is prob required. I would go some grey bullitts. I think it would be the icing on the cake.
