The Bullitt would require converting the 1999 Cobra lower front bumper back to a GT Bumper (might be able to use the earlier 94-95 with some slight mods grafted to the 99 upper) and a hood scoop modified from one of the 87-89GT Mustangs from AMT/MPC and sit on the modified Cobra hood. Wheels could be either the 2008 Bullitts with a slight lip added or a set of aftermarket Torques.
As to the Mach 1, well.............I am still working on a parts list/fit for that!
Yep...above my paygrade just a bit,at least until I gt back into it...one does loose a bit when off the bench a year or more,LOL! Sounds doale though,and I have most of the parts. Thanks
I'd LOVE to see those Mach I wheels in scale.
Me too! I wouldn't mind seeing them on my '94 in 1:1 too,LOL!

Well, I don't have one that I'm currently working on, but if I decide to start one, I have plenty of these things to choose from. They somehow multiplied.

I don't have any photos to show this next issue but after fitting the tub in place which fit nicely in the cockpit area I found that the engine compartment walls didn't match up with the body. There was almost a 3/16 inch gap. Using some clamps, a soft rag to protect the finish and some CA glue I forced the kit to see things my way
I rarely win any arguments with my models but I won this one.
Time to mount the body and interior on the chassis.
Well things are back to normal. I lost the battle with this one but not the war. The cost was that the front suspension fell off the car.
As I tried to remount the front suspension another issue arose that I wasn't suspecting. For some unknown reason the front of the car was riding high. Sorry no pics
After lots and lots of fiddling it appeared that the springs and shocks were topping out in the wheel wells so I chopped them down a bit and remounted the front suspension. It helped a little but not as much as I hoped
The only other thing I could come up with to lower the front was to start shaving the frame where the cross member meets the frame. I also ended up grinding down the frame. the amount of plastic removed does not accurately reflect the height the car was lowered but it is a bit better.
Thanks for looking
