PICS pg 2!! - change-up: ditching side skirts and rear bumper

for a stock rear bumper and svo side skirts from ABCEx (late christmas gift from the fiance :hail2: )..

it was time to get a new front bumper (one i have now is damaged/cracked--as some of you may remember from my late-night accident w/ a median while out of town for a show) and i've decided to change up the rest of the body and pay shipping once.

a side skirt is damaged any way, so is the rear, so the car will finally be clean again.

question is: you guys w/ the svo skirts--what exhaust tips are you using and where are you getting them from?

long time ago when i was going to do side exhaust on my stang i had the shop test fit 3.5 inch slash cut tip sideways so it mounts flush with the opening...didnt like the look, so i ditched that idea...i think most common is going to be the borla twin tip those go for like 50 or 60 each on ebay though :(

yup, going w/ the same front bumper.

i want to change wheels, but that won't happen for a while. i'm thinking either black-chrome fr500's (deep dish out back) or 03 cobras.. haven't given it much thought, really.

on a side note--tried looking on Borla's site for those tips and couldnt' find them.

yeah, I'm not even sure if they still make those tips. They sold them for a short while when they were still making the 75625 kit, but I havent seen them in a long time, only the entire side exhaust kit.

*** EDIT ***

They are on this page... but cant find them on Borla's site

any of you gents w/ the svo skirts--mind posting up pics of the underside?

i know i'm gonna screw both ends to the fenders, and gonna rivet/screw them to the door sill (ABC's have a lip), but i'm not sure if i need to make brackets for the bottom of the skirts to the underside of the car.

if i do have to make brackets, what are you guys using for that?
