Yes you do! This picture kinda makes me want to put my wing back on...

Plasidipped Mach 1 emblem looks pretty good. Been wondering how that would come out but I'm far too lazy to try it myself.

Scuffed them, wiped down with alcohol, painted. Really easy.

Re: The Wheel Pictures Thread

Looks awesome man, I love the all black emblem look thats how my cobra is. I think your car would really be set off if it had black exhaust tips!

Re: The Wheel Pictures Thread

My car is not a Mach 1, but here are few pictures of different wheels I have had on it (and body parts) over the 8 years I have had it... First two photos were a set of original 2003 17x9 Cobra wheels in the machined finish with grey inserts that I picked up from a Cobra owner who wanted something different. I ran Kumho Ecsta 275/40r17's on all 4. Then I added a pair of AFS 17x10.5 wheels with 315/35/17 Sumitomo HTRZ II out back in the last two photos (Sumitomo's were the worst tires I have ever owned, didn't last 10k miles). The old CD Stars & Strip Pony, Mach 1 Grill delete, Bullitt Brakes, Saleen Wing, and 2000 Cobra "R" Hood have been the constents on this car and they will always remain. The 2001 Cobra front bumper cover and fog lights were my first mod less than 3 weeks after buying the car brand new in August of 2003, but it is now gone (along with a full 2003 Cobra body kit) and the car is under going reconstruction again.

Re: The Wheel Pictures Thread

Here are a few more photos with my current "staggered fitment" 17x9 Shelby Razor rims with Polished lips and Anthricite Grey finished centers. The "staggered fitment" is because the front wheels were designed with a +40mm offset (6.6" back spacing) for the 2005-current Mustangs and the rear are +24mm offset (5.94" back spacing) for the 1994-2004 Mustangs. This offset pulls the front wheels in under the front fender just enough to mach the rears slight inset. These are wearing Kumho Ecsta SPT's 265/40/17 front (now a discontinued size by Kumho) & 285/40/17 rear. Now I am trying to decide what will be my next set of wheels.

Looks good sonicbluebeast.

Did you just take your side skirts off? Interesting, never seen anyone do that before.

Good eye, most people scratch their heads all day wondering why it looks so different, but yes the factory Side Skirts have been removed. The passenger side by some unkown object that I encountered while accelerating up an on ramp to the Interstate and the driver side by me; since I couldn't get a new one, have it painted to match and installed before attending a car show the next day.

By the way if any is interested I have a perfectly good driver's side factory Side Skirt, that I can make you an awesome deal on.
