looks good.. one suggestion would be the coolant tank cover that comes in black... would make that engine bay even better looking. great job on your build!

I'll eventually replace the tank. I don't like the shape of it, or I would do the black cover, but I agree. Gotta get rid of that pumpkin!

We will have to start calling you "the White Whipple"!

Awesome job inside and out!

Getting rid of the pumpkin is the way to go. But a rattle can of black undercoating is a cheap way to take the god awful look away for the time being.
But you bay looks great either way.
I did the cover, as it was easier than taking out the tank any spraying it.

Definitely on the list in the future to obtain a jellyfish cover.

You are always full of good ideas for white Mustang verts! I have used several of them already!

dang that does look good. I took the cap off to top up the coolant the other day and the cap just completely fell apart. I almost ordered a replacement tank right then, but I was able to get everything back together... I'll leave it for now.

Checked out these Brerx brakes the other day for fitment. They actually look pretty sick!

Black rotors are soooo good!

If I was rocking the base brakes, I'd totally switch to these, but since I have the Brembos, I'm not gonna. I like the red more than I thought I would though!

I finally got around to installing these Morimoto XB headlights. I fell in love with these things when I first saw them and new one day they would be mine.

Lost track of how many times I've had the front bumper off now

Love that the insides of the housings are all black instead of chrome and orange

Love that LED halo too

not sure as I haven't even taken it out of the shed yet.

I'll say that I was never very Impressed with the original headlights and also found it difficult/impossible to get them aimed where I wanted as well (they are pointed WAY too low, and I can't adjust them up), so if these can point down the road reasonably, that will be an improvement in my book.

but the main thing for me is that they look cool. Where I live, all the roads are well lit, and for me the ability of my headlights to show me where I am going is secondary to appearance. If other people are running these headlights and not complaining about brightness, they'll be plenty bright for me!
