    Hey 6G!

    Below is my brand new 2019 Kona Blue PP1 A10. She's my first Mustang ever and I couldn't be happier!

    I have plans to make it into the best DD possible (as many people around here do) with upgrades to handling and looks with no real power mods on the horizon.

    Here's a before picture (or 2) and hopefully before too long the after doesn't look too similar:

    Cheers! :beer:

    I installed:

    -OEM Black Badges
    -Steeda X-Pipe

    I have the factory Active Exhaust so adding the X-pipe made an already good sounding exhaust sound soooo good. It really sings about 3.5-4k and even has some pops on downshifts and plenty of rumbles.

    Since everyone knows what black badges look like here's a picture at Sonic with a buddy :crackup:

    My exterior goal is a blue and black look. Black badges were the first step, next is getting rid of some of the reds. Picked up these smoked lens LED side markers and I have to say they look realll good. replacing the single dull incandescent bulb with the led strip in these makes a world of difference.

    Made an "uh-oh" while installing the black GT badge (somehow pulled a chunk of the decklid out with the old chrome badge). While it was pretty hard to see I knew it was there and it bugged me to no end. Bought a replacement blank Ford Performance decklid and a blackout Coyote badge from MF Auto Designs.

    Love the way it turned out!

    Pic of the damage (and very dirty decklid):

    Small details! Car came with ugly green valve stem caps because ~nitrogen~ filled tires....

    Picked up some black titanium ones and even with a little bit of the brass showing it still looks miles better.
