I think I will start with some cosmetics. Nothing major, and probably all interior. I like the looks of the Aluminum Billet pieces (I really wish someone would come out with a gauge insert that puts brushed aluminum rings around the gauges, like on the prototype).

For now I just want to drive it. :smile:

I just slapped in a K&N when I changed my oil at 552miles. I'm getting the alarm put in on the 29th and am looking at getting the aluminum bits for the interior.. Switches, Climate control knobs, E-brake handle.
I'm probably gonna check out removing the air silencer and see about getting the intake polished inside and out.. But that'll probably wait until teh winter when the baby will be sleeping for most of it.

Blakwing,

can you post the websites for the aluminum bits you are getting for the interior? The interior is nice, but could be nicer I think. :smile:

I'm going to start with tint and maybe the sequential tail lights. Also a K&N. I finally turned 300 miles yesterday. Would have more if it wasn't raining all the damn time!!!

I have connected with a guy that has a graphics/tint shop. We have designed a subtle eyebrow with the same font as the door sills and the build number. Also going to incorporate a "speeding bullet" with the build number on it for the rear quarter windows. Will post the pictures after it is complete at Bullitt Proof. Probably take about three weeks, this guy is a REAL busy man.

Could you ask that graphics guy what the font name is? I have been searching for the Bullitt font with no luck. Have found a couple that are close, but not quite exact...

Dave,
We did not find an exact match. PrintMaster has a font called Brando. All of the letters in "BULLITT" except the "B" are so extremely close that we are using them. He freehanded the minor changes to the "B". Since the only thing that we actually have on the car in this font is "BULLITT", using the numbers from the PrintMaster font will work out perfectly. This guy was going to just trace the letters on the sill plate and then enlarge them, but I found this font, so that is what we are going with.

That's what I did for this site. I started out with the font "Brando" and changed the B so t matched the Bullitt badge.

I was reading a post a while back about an alarm by the name of F400. Is this a ford alarm or an after market product. I can't remember who posted it, but I would appreciate some help on this.

I had an Auto Page system installed in mine yesterday. It has the dual zone system. Shock sensor, trunk release, starter kill, all the usual stuff plus an intrusion microwave sensor. Had to take the car back today to have the sensitivity adjusted. Big thunderstorm last night set the alarm off twice and then it just went off once all by itself. Couldn't tell if something got to close or what.

Dillo,
The name of the font that I found to get my tint graphics done is called Brando and is in Broderbund PrintMaster suite. I tried to find the specific file for this font , but was unable to. The software is relatively inexpensive to buy.

Sorry I wasn't able to help anymore than this. Hope you can find what you are looking for.

Thanks for trying, Steve. Guess I'll just have to shell out the cash so I can have that font........

The car look's great stone cold stock, it's sleek,sinister and understated. An adult's mustang. No bell's and whistle's to clutter the statement.

SteveBullitt I really like the "speeding bullet" logo with your build number. That's something that could definitely end up on my car, any chance of reproducing it for the rest of us? For a modest fee, of course...

So far, tint and alarm are my only mods as well. Had them done at the dealership and included in the 0% financing deal. Next on my list is a Steeda Tri-Ax shifter thanks to the group purchase on this web site.
