The car, as a whole, looks pretty good. The hood scoop kind of stands out as being the double sided tape kind. If you were to try to make it look more molded in, it wouldn't stick out as much and look more like it belongs there. I like the cleared out lighting, but you have to do something different with the bulb choice. Get yourself a set of silverstars in there ASAP to get rid of that ugly yellow glow coming from your current bulbs.

Also, moving on to under the hood... You may want to try cleaning up things a bit before you go crazy with a spray can. A good engine degreaser and alittle elbow work will make that engine look show room perfect and make your accents stand out more. Maybe next time, you could be alittle more careful with the over spray on the intake manifold or clean it up immediately after you do it.

Overall, nice start, but your still learning.

Nice ride G2T.... it'* always good to see someone experimenting w/ the looks of their car. I mean if you don't like it, undo it (most of the time you can) hehe...

Hey... it may not be a Bonnie or GM, but it'* still got a 3.8L under the hood.
It'* not what'* on the outside
It'* what'* under the hood


I like the clear corner lights too, and I do actually like the black wheels. They are a heavy contrast but I believe it works with the car.

Some suggestions.....
-get SilverStars for your headlights
-de-badge the car... remove all Ford emblems and such
-re-badge the car (w/ "Police Interceptor" badges).... you said your car does have the "Police Package"

You can buy them on ebay for like $5-$15... just buy one and put it on the back of the car. I see taxis with them all the time, because they used to be police cruisers.

Good luck w/ your ride.

Yes it is a police package and I do suprise my friends alot. Its funny. But Im thinking about badges now that you mention it. The wheels are going with a white and black theme im doing which is def not finished. The tailights will be nightshaded also probably head light covers. Nice dark tint. And yes head lights Im either doing silvannas or HID kit and just get it professionaly installed. I have to go to Toronto tomarow for a few days and Ill start working on it agian but like, When Im gone who ever has suggestions that are feasable im up for ideas. Anything you can think of. But hopefully I wont get rant comments. thanx T

buy clear headlight covers and paint them to match the car... they also have these sticker type things at pep boys called "The Mask." You can cut out any design you desire and place them on your light assemblies
