Yeah Sorry as it was already pointed out mine is a V6... But I will dress it as a V8 when finished..... what a poser!!!!! :) . Oh well I guess I don't really need the extra power just the look LOL . Wow that paint job looks kick-butt. I know who am I going to be learning from :) .

Well the Charger was a really really comfortable ride and very quiet, like cruising kind of ride. It was a V6 also, I don't buy high powered cars since I crashed my corvette with some Cops back in Alabama when I was racing them.... The little bastards didn't like that I was winning so they cut me off so I ended up touching the right side rear end while turning and off we went, they spin clockwise and I spin the opposite direction. Ohh memories, well the moral of the story.... if you can't handle the power or you can resist the temptation... don't get it. So since then I just get the slow version of the cars I like, hence my v6 choices..... But I have to have the look...... Poser!!!!!......................

Well sorry you had to read that.... :) Just sharing a little of me....

you are right, the thread could get out of topic, I will keep the real stang mods in the general forum. And the charger was a 2006 with 75,000 miles on it, I got a good deal in the mustang which is a 2008 with 42,000 miles. I bought the mustang and still have $2,000 left from the sale of the charger. It was a good deal so I jumped into it.

For your first build you are doing a great job, are you planning on doing anymore mustang kits?. Welcome to the mustang build, if yiu need any help, everyone in here, and on this forum will be more then happy to help, just gotta ask.


Miguel Welcome to the world of Ponies!! and the hobby !! Your build is looking great so far. I like how you've incorporated the body color into the premium seat inserts


Tks Martin, yeas I already have more mustang kits already in my hands and ready to be destroyed :) :
  • Shelby GT500KR
  • SALEEN S281 MUSTANG SPEEDSTER
  • Shelby Cobra 427 S/C
  • 64 1/2 Mustang Convertible
  • Shelby GR-350R
And I already have many other no mustang related kits, I have 26 in total so I either learn or...... learn :) .


Actually believe it or not, when I started looking for reference pictures for the mustang, I discovered that they can be customized big time and being as impulsive as I am, I sold my 2006 Charger and bought a 2008 Base mustang a week ago to customize it..... So that one is going to be a real life built that I will be doing along with the modeling :). Things that I have already on order for it:
  • GT Wing
  • GT500 style hood scoop
  • GT style fog lights and grill
  • Side Window air covers
  • Rear Blackout Panel
  • I will either Carbon Fiber Wrap the hood and the hood scoop or install 8" stripes.
  • A few other things here and there.
I don't know if that stills qualifies for this thread but here it is how it stands right now. I might post the picture after I install all that aftermarket stuff in case you guys want to see the change.... Dont mind the ugly me in the picture :) .
