2002 35th Anniversary Cougar

We have to redo the door handles b/c the adhesive ghosted out after it was cleared but other than that turned out pretty nice. We'll be doing some sort of carbon fiber wing on it in the next few weeks and possibly a fiberglass stereo install.

Long time no see(type...whatever). That looks great. The only thing I don't like is the antenna in the back. Is that for satellite radio? Who's car is that???

Craig that looks awesome. Could you give me a rough estimate of how much it would cost to have the widebody kit molded onto my car with the drift rear (just like this one but with the millenium sides).

Thanks

Also confused about the antenna? I mean I would prbly shave the front if you are gonna go ahead and get everything done like custom paint, molding etc. But also like Matt said the exhaust? And alot of people seem to be going to that similar shade of orange or whatever color it is.... I mean Im sure if I saw them up close theyed be totally different but thats 3 now with somewhat similar kits and paint. The WW sides look good on that I think. Good work for sure!

heh, yep, the mysteries of life eh Madcat? :)

also, he seems to have a second antenna on the back for XM radio (or whatever)... so he wouldn't even need the front one :shrug:

get rid of the windshield decal ,and the muffler. rest looks pretty good body work wise. kinda strange looking on the front flare though how it goes straight down to meet with teh side skirt. doesnt seem to flow to well right there.

I'm actually going to say something that I can't believe I am... I don't like it

the side skirt choice killed it - it doesn't flow at all.. it looks like each piece is a bolt on when infact its not.. is it just me or does that car look god aweful chunky?

hmm...its **** and pee mixed to make the colour(and im sorry if the owner of the car is offended but hey, its a free country) the sides are horrible, as crispy said, the only thing i like is the ass end but it needs some damn tail covers, and the wheels are too played out as well, it is original tho :-D

My poinion....

Paint dunno, it's one of those colors that lighting can really have a harsh effect. To dark...blah, bright day...might look amazing. But it's definitly a color that shadows don't help.

Body the back end from the door on looks great, but as someone mentioned, where the bottom of the frnot fender meets the skirt it looks choppy. I think if the fender flare extented over it, then blended back it would work. As for the work itself, great job Craig. The tail-light still need a hand in appearance...covers or nightshaded...or both...the red is NOT working. In terms of the muffler...hmm, I'd personally do the 'Y' pipe just to even it out. I'd change out the sidemarkers to black to go with the tint and rims, and those arials...what do you need BOTH for....I'm assuming the rear is for a GPS, but who knows. As for the vent....I'm not a boxter vent fan. They are to tiny IMO for the rear of our car. it's a HUGE rear quarter....it needs somthing a bit bigger.

Overall....it's not my favorite, but it's by far not the worst I've seen. The concept (skirts/front/rear) is somthing different, so I give props for that.

one last note... this is the second car now with the Boxster vents installed... isn's someone gonna give him a hassle about the vents being crooked.. ? Obviously its the way the vents are and it is all dependant on what angle you are standing at... maybe you guys will stop ripping on my car now..
