Tuned Ford Mustang GT Convertable
This is my most extravagant tuner ever, by far! It's stuffed full of new techniques, and way overboard on the customization.
About this creation


Created as Part II of my entry to WCT-MC's joint contest, Stock-To-Tuner. Again, as in the stock version, I only photographed 1 side of the car, because I didn't have the pieces to finish both sides properly, so judges, please understand. Other that that little note, the pictures speak for themselves.

Let's start with the front, which is my favorite part. The hood scoops are certainly a standout, and my inspiration came from the following picture. I printed this picture off Google, (accidentally on a piece of paper that already had words and stuff on it, as you might notice) and promptly lost it. Finally finding it, I used it for the inspiration for my mustang hood scoops. I wanted it on this page because it is so cool, so I googled and googled and googled, and couldn't find it again at all. So I scanned it into my computer and uploaded it. So I hope you enjoy it, because I sure worked hard enough to get it here!



As we were saying, about the front...one of my favorite details is the window across the grille, which, surprisingly, actually stays in place when I turn the car upside-down and shake it. I got the idea from the above picture of the random gray tuner mustang.


The front bumper was a challenge. Those two window-like pieces hold it on quite well.


Onto the rest of the body...









Toward the rear a little more...notice the side scoop, neons, custom rims, and the way I did the back behind the seats, (like Firas' Lamborghini Murc. Roadster) and of course the fin. I like the fin.

Grab a 1x6 brick. Turn it upside down. You will see little posts that go between the studs of the brick it is on top of. One of those little posts broke off of a black 1x6 I had, so I stuck in in for the driver-side door handle. Smart, huh?









Well, how did I do? Thanks for viewing my creation, and hope you liked it!

Guess what! I won the contest! It got a perfect 25/25 score from all three judges, for a final of 75/75! Great contest, Dax!

This is freakin awsome! Tune job: 5/5 JUST EPIC Proportions: 5/5 Don't worry about the steering wheel. I have to use that one for all my cars :) interesting techniques: 5/5 Too many, Can't write them in 1 comment. Creativity: 5/5 It's just too good for words! Overall appearance: 5/5 To be serious, the front scoops stick out a little, but I wouldn't want to spoil it for you (no pun intended). So overall, this is just the perfect tuner. -=25=-

First of all - the first "bleep" was 3-letter word, not 4. Second "bleep" wasn't any of 'F' or 'S'-words. It was "DAMM" - read as I wrote and don't invent something, ok?? If you have some problems or are you just not in the mood, leave that out of the mocpages. There was ABOSLUTELY NOTHING MEAN, RUDE, .... I don't understand you.... whatever - wont comment on your stuff anymore.... You own me an appology!!! Thanks for ruinig my morning... :(

Quoting Rolands Kirpis MY (BLEEP)!!! Now - this I call a HEAVY TUNING. (Bleep) - I can find only one mistake - the rear lights. Everything else - PERFECT!!! So - 25 from me (no more words)
Thanks Rolands for the nice rating, but keep 4-letter words off my hard-worked-for page please. I would appreciate that.
