Hey Nick do you have any pics of the 07 GT500 you did not too long ago? My dad might be interested in your services here pretty soon for his.

Don't think I've done a red/white one. The first pictured Shelby is the one I couldn't open the trunk on.

Are you sure? We went through this before, then you took the car home without calling me Let me know when you'd like it done, I'm a bit backed up right now. Should I just go through Chris to figure out the details?

Go through Chris. It's yours to rub on.

Hell yeah that's pretty funky/cool.

I still say that lower valance is like a dildo hood ornament, and the tail lights aren't a good fit, but there's something to like, that's for sure.

I like it in white better, but it just looks weird. The back half is greatness, but the front end just seems odd on the new body. The mirrors are the culprit.

The rear looks killer.

The front looks like an outbreak of genital warts.

There are pictures plastered all over this forum

Go into your control panel, and then "edit options", about 2/3 of the way down the page, select "Default Thread Age Cut Off" and change it to "show all threads"

There are pages and pages of my work in Nick's Custom Detailing forum

Come on, thats a little harsh. I really like these cars. They care very unusual, and creative. The only turn off for me is the huge fat chin it has and the wheels. But I like everything else.

I'm blown away by that rear bumper. Maybe a little forced, but I like it. Too bad the lights missed the mark.

I also dig the shit outta the wheels.

Maybe it was. The front is nearly there, but it falls a little short and I guess it really puts me off. I think it may be the hood.

It really only had that in '68. I've always felt it was inferior to the '67, and the 69-70 just doesn't look Mustangy anymore.

Man that is a funny looking car.

It's just enough "real old" and "real new" to make you look... I think I'd rather have two cars than a hybrid though.

Do the tail lights work sequentially when you use the blinker?
