Saw one at the local FTE dealer. It was only a 6 but man it sounded sweet. I've said before I like my cars low key, still does't look to bad.

I'd rather suspension, brake and engine mods before I started on bodykits, gotta have the go to match the show or you're pretty quickly labelled a tosser.

You can buy these kits from here: http://www.fordperegrine.com/index.htm

On the weekend at one dealer they had a black and silver XR6s that at first glance had appeared to have both been riced up. They had actually been done up to look like a street versions of Lowndes car. They had basically swapped the front and rear bumpers, hood and bonnet between them. They put a large 'XR' sticker on the bottom of the front doors. They also had a two foot long contrasting Ford logo angled across the back doors like the Lowndes car. (Silver logo on the black car). I personally thought it was a bit of a wank.:thumbdown

Partsguy was telling me that he got a bloody transit van for his next work car (replacing a ute) and he's looking at getting it painted like lowndes car.

Then theres Doc, he's looking at doing the same, or at least he was.

I recon it'd look pretty cool if it was done right :cool:
The lasers that were painted in the team colours at Adelaide did :D

Personally I am not in favour of these body kit mods. Our local for dealer is famous for them and they look stupid. Try a white Futura with cobra strips up it.

There is now a similar thread on BON with some people like the look of the car I described. Its not for me as those strips are for performance cars with big cred and the futura does not do it for me in this area (yet)

I agree with HSE2, Cobra strips on a Futura is almost blasphemy! :WH:

I've toyed with the idea of Cobra stripes on my white Falcon, but only after it's got the performance to be worthy of such decorations. I've decided if I do get them, they are going to be green (ala the old Goss specials...) instead of blue. I remember seeing a EB get the blue strip job (for the Ford boss at the time, if I remember) and I thought, there's no 351 under the bonnet - it's just not right.

For me, the stripes kind of tie in white the whole Venomous/Venom S thing. I'll have Venom S plates soon, the car's an S pak, and my label is called Venomous Records, and if you've seen my web site, it's mostly green - thus green cobra (snake) stripes on an S pak.:evil:

Where do these people get the idea that that might appeal to some buyers? it's just not right, no wonder they can't sell the product, the dealers make a slighly off looking car look even worse :eek:

if you think the kit is bad, go to the site and view the prices. the phase 3 kit is rediculous.

Yes I guess some guy might think it is the best thing going, so if he is happy I guess that is all that matters. One ford car that is no longer in the car yard and that has to be good.
