Here she is, the mustang thats gone through heck and back. 3 paint jobs, a failed wide body kit and over the past 3 months its just been a process of sand, filld, sand, fill, and you get the point. Most of the body lines are shaved. I primered it today and while cleaning up dropped paint ont he hood. I was furious :mad: Here are some pics







There a drip on one end of the mustang which I will sand lightly and spray the final color.

yea but you lose them easier if your walkin on a table and the fall of and you never find them again. lol I'm still debating graphics, depends what kind of paint scheme i do.

Yea this was my first xmod ever, its been through EVERYTHING! Rolling Eyes

well just see how steady my hand is lol. I'm not sure how I'd feel about the blue and silver, maybe some small stripes but too big and i think it will look kinda goofy.

All I know is that its the 06 mustang, not really a fast back.

I will update today when I finish the hood and do some touchups.

the blue stripes would have been a pain unless I got osm ekind of stickers as of how small I would have to make and I don't want to pay for them.

If you have an old screen window that's torn and has to be fixed anyway, the screen makes a great wire mesh in that scale, you can paint it silver so it looks like stainless steel or black is cool too. It came out pretty good, nice work.

I was looking for the screen down in my cellar and I found it. I just need to get a hold of some silver paint, cut out the grill (only teh top though cuz the bottom one is where it goes into.)

I have a lexan body and servo coming in for this, I also plan on dropping the 180 and throwing a 130 in there so I can run taller tires for more speed and clearence on the street.

In case you haven't noticed I got a new Lexan body from Chris at XI. Very nice, working on mounting this bad boy, also got a servo.
