Well....I have never really liked the faux gas cap on the rear and I want a one-off FAKE cap. Either that or one of those panels to hide the whole area between tailights.
For the fake cap, I'd like something that's a cross between a 71-73 Mach 1 flip open cap and the racing-style flip open on Eleanor.
I figured to get what I want I'll have to sculpt it out of clay and cast a mold out of silicone and then cast the part in urethane. Then prime and paint flat black or silver.
The OTHER mod....
Mirrors!!! I loathe these TRUCK mirrors...Ugh!
I have a pair of Street Sceen Cal Vu Mirrors from a different application that I can use. The base plate on these is for a Dodge Durango, and Yes, they are a Craigslist purchase.
Since Street Scene has NO base plates for the 05+ Mustangs, I would have to fab up/fiberglass my own "door triangle" and graft these on. A lot of work for a pair of mirrors that aren't electric and don't fold. But I hardly drive the beast anyway, right?
I Like the Agent 47 mirrors but at $250 a pair....OUCH!
I also have a pair of Mitsubishi Eclipse aftermarket carbon fiber mirrors that ARE electric and DO FOLD! They would have to be fabbed into a triangle as well. Haven't decided yet. I like the look of the Cal Vu but don't relish the loss of functionality. Decisions, decisions....
