Also concerned with where water would fall if I were to drive in the rain. I’m open to recommendations
When driving no big deal. engine is warm so water evaps quick and the way the slots are angled the engine wont really get that wet. Be more concerned when washing and aiming the water hose and the car being parked outside in the rain.

That’s sort of the consensus I came to but it’s nice to hear it from someone else. Cars going to be ppf’d and ceramic coated. In addition it will live in a garage as much as possible and I have a cover for when I can’t

Quick photo update…shop got the black accessory paint added on the front bumper and winglets. She’s dirty as hell but to be expected sitting in a shop. Cars ready for pick up tomorrow. They probably have her all cleaned and polished by now but I won’t be able to pick her up at least for another week. I have a wedding to attend and then immediately travel to work for an additional week. I’m just ready to have her back

Well, she’s officially done and holy hell. If she looks even as half good in person as she does in photos I’ll be beyond happy. Here she is.

Only “issue” I’ve noticed from photos are fitment on the front hood. It does look a little wide but I had this issue from the car stock. I was hoping the new hood would fix it. At this I wonder if that just how it is😄. Aside from that everything’s clean. Ignore the fuel door. Previous owner plastie dipped it and I tried removing it before taking it to the shop.

Looks great! I have thought about doing the same to mine. Curious what something like this would run all in...?

Yeah I have no problem sharing that with you.
hood struts 90 (didn’t fit the replacementhood)
MP GT500 bumper 883
MP GT350 hood 795
Mp GT350 fenders 375x2
Handling fee for larger items 25
MP GT500 side rockers 215
MP GT500 spoiler w wicker 200
Renegade smoked euro tail lights 510
MP gt350 rear bumper winglets 50
MP gt500 rear diffuser 230
Mp replacement deck lid 100
Installation, paint and some touch up 1,800
Total around $6,300

the biggest expense will be the body panels and paintin/labor. I got a major deal on the latterbut it’s safe to say expect around the same price. Also small tip. Who ever you order parts through….call to place the order don’t do it online. They’ll give you a good discount over the phone. American Muscle hooked me up big time. Easily saved $500+

That is really not bad at all for a complete (and unique) transformation like this!

I don't know if I'll get around to it all but lately I have been thinking about going FBO with a tune, mayyyybe procharger next, and then finally do some tasteful appearance mods to really make the car mine. Love the mix of gt350 and gt500 elements.

Gotta do the performance stuff first or I'm afraid I'll get bored with the car but really thiniking FBO might be enough as I'm never going to track it (since it's a vert).

The hardest question to answer, although considering all that paint work you just had done is think seriously about protecting that investment
