I like the idea. It gives it a more "sporty" look.

Dude, first off that car looks sick! The wheel/tire combo and the drop looks badass. As for the calipers - I'd either color match to the car or go with red. But it looks pretty good.

Yeah, gonna get the tint straight coming up here soon. I'm surprised no one has noticed, or mentioned the SVT emblems on the fender.

I like the wheels to. And I saw the SVT on the fender to go along with the wheels. That second shot almost looks like a mustang wheel and fender. Can't wait to see the tint. What percentage you going with??

I'm not sure yet. I usually always go dark. My last 5 Mustangs, and my truck had 95% tint(5% light trans.) I might tone it down a bit this time. probably 80% tint(20% LT)

The blue looks good on the calipers. I like those wheels as well.

Gonna tint them as soon as I get time. They actually have tint on them, but it is really light. And the guy who owned it before me did a crappy tint job on the rear window, so i have to get that off without messing up the defrost or antenna first.
