Thanks for the pics,makes mch more sense seeing it then picturing it in my head :),and thanks for the props on the Bumblebee :D

The kit that got me back into building was the Revell '49 Merc kit when first released (see my username,LOL),but the Mustang made it stick.

Flocking looks good!

Sorry I didn't get the pics last night was dead tired after fighting mean thunderstorms and OKC rush hour traffic at the same time last night. The pics above do show what I meant in the rear. Bradley simply cutting the coils won't work on these. The above pictured part is in the way out back and up front the coil spring is just there for show as the wheels actually attach to the K member piece and not the strut

] Here is how I lower my '05 and up Mustangs. I take the rotors and remove part of the mounting ring from the back where it mounts to the suspension.

Determine how low you want to lower your Mustang by placing a few index or business cards under the chassis. When you decide where your height will be, mount the rotors to the suspension. Then you can mount the wheels to the rotors with plastic rod or drill into the rotor center with a drill bit slightly smaller than the wheel mounting pins.
Posted Image
If you have done everytthing correctly, your model will sit level. Keep in mind that lowering is limited to how wide a tire you use and how low you want to go.

Man this aint been my dang week got sick yesterday afternoon. Finally got a minute where I can get in my room and attack the site from my desktop instead of my Phone.
Here's the pics I promised days ago

This is the rear only modded chassis I got at the moment but ya can see whats removed from mine by comparing it to one of your unmolested ones. I removed the arm above the diff and removed the shaft tunnel for clearance After this is done ya cut the spring to the right height and install the rear as in the instructions Kinda ugly but is all hidden on a built model. Plus I don't fuss much bout the side the shelf sees.
Posted Image
Up front ya can see where my K member mounts on the frame are flat compared to the '10 frame in the background. this raises the K higher to the engine thus lowering the stance after this mod ya just gotta cut ya struts to the right height. If done right ya should actually still be able to mount the K as intended cause all the locating holes stay in the frame even where ya shave it down. Do these mods only after ya have selected wheels and tires because as said before they do limit how low the car can sit without major surgery to the wheel wells. Also do the front first so ya can use it to align the rear to the corect height ..... the front can only go so low while the rear can go as low as ya want .... one wrong cut and the car has a taildragger stance

Sorry to hear you're sick,old friend. "I see" said the sight challenged man to his hearing impaired friend! Yeah,I can do that. I've right clicked and saved all these pics (Mike,yours too) on the how to to a folder for quick and easy referance,so I can look at it when I get to it. I appreciate the help on that,guys,really :)

Hey guys, I made some progress, and I picked up another stang kit today, ( used a HL coupon) I picked up the GT500 KR, my plan for it, and the reason why I bought is to make KITT from remake of Knight Rider.

So here is what the new stance looks like, I still have a little work to do up front, and the body has been cleared now too

Yea I am starting to like this blue as well, i am not even going to wet sand and polish this one. I think the show lasted two season's , I will go double check, what I do know is I think I watch maybe three episodes, and the two hour pilot, but i just could not get in to the show.

I have not decided yet, but what I am thinking is for the knight rider build , I dont know if i want to try and recreate the interior .

One: Window tint (can't see the interior ;) :D -hey,KITT's was tinted so it's accurate!),and two,yeah,the show kinda was a bit cliche'd,what drew me in were the cleavage shots (shhh...my wife's sitting right next to me :wacko: :blink: :P ) and the Mstang bits.

I have finished the 2010 GT, i will take pics of it tomorrow and get them posted.

I am going to look at more pics of the interior if I can find more, and then decide if i want to , part of it I think I can do, like the middle console and middle part of the dash, but the back seat I am not sure I want to try.
