Personally - Black is too common/Boring - Silver is my style:

I totally agree. But that said, In for a dime, in for a dollar. When going to the "dark side", might as well finish the job. Black always says to me: nothing to see here folks. Having bright lug nuts contradicts that.

I see you have the GT350 style fenders which i love , are they factory or aftermarket and if the latter are the aftermarket ones wider like the genuine gt350 fenders . cheers

Looks great with that colour , like an old school jaffa . Given my car is basically black in most light i need to change it up and go something a bit contrasting . still havent decided .
Just my personal taste but I think bronze wheels would look great.

I was looking at bronze only yesterday and i really like the ferrada wheel you posted here but alas they are so expensive here with little change from $6k . I have put these wheels in pic here on my list in bronze and they actually do i think 3 diff bronze colours just to make it difficult . Just got a quote on a H pipe for $340 fitted which i am going to lock in after first service .

Let us know how the H pipe goes. It's on my list.

Was only suggesting the colour, not the wheel. Mission for you now is to find reasonably price bronze wheels.

damn that looks amazing! What wheels are they please?
Ok folks I need to clarify that I posted this because it has the aforementioned 'unloved' silver wheel nuts (extended!) but just look at it :inlove:. Sadly it's not my mine, it's a genuine GT350 which is a car I loathe and despise but ONLY because it looks insanely good and I can't buy one locally.

The wheels appear to be GT350R pattern similar to Project 6GR 7 spoke:

I think @snake bite has similar wheels which he shows on this page on a black GT:

There's also these:

Well I'll be...nice find. If it wasn't for the potential frailties of the Voodoo and the challenge of managing them locally it'd almost be worth making an offer at a more reasonable price.

There's a US thread on here about the cost of converting a GT to GT350 front end using OEM parts and it was uneconomical even for them.

https://www.bmcextremecustoms.net/2015-2019-mustang-gt350r-conversion-kit-.html

The GTs I've seen on here with aftermarket GT350 kits look pretty good but understandably don't capture the true look of the GT350. If I had an 18+ I might look into an M1 front, they're a damn good looking car and IMHO the next best looking S550 to a GT350.

I am a fan of the GT500 and will do the front and bonnet at some stage , wouldnt mind adding the GT350 fenders to that combo for a bitza mustang . Reckon be a sweet looking ride . Those bronze wheels i posted above are Koya . They are just down the road from me so will go have a look next week and all going good lay down the coin . Looking online can get a set of wheels for about $2400 which is good , I was going to get a set of shelby CS5 but the lead time is big and i am digging those Koya's

These are less expensive. They come 10 inch also. https://cncwheels.com.au/shop/wheel...ze-with-chrome-lip-20x8-5-5x114-3-wheel-only/

I have Koya semi forged on mine the same as the ones that Bullutt posted but in charcoal, really happy with them. If you are interested my setup is :
Koya Semi Forged
SF04
20*10 ET34
20*11 ET50
Satin GTR Grey

The car handles and rides really well, the rims are nice and relatively easy to clean except that brake dust gets behind the spokes which is a nuisance to get rid of. They were pretty cheap, I got them through RollingStock (who I find to be fantastic for buying rims, really helpful and enthusiasts) for about $2600. They ship to my local tyre guys who then fit them and supply the tyres, just if you do it make sure they swap over the tpms modules from the old wheels.
