I've been lookin for a way to spice up the looks of my base 92 bird for awhile. I've seen all the gfx that can be seen, the only ones that are even close to being decent are the xenons, but they are pretty expensive. I really like the look of the SC ground fx, but i have a few questions

1. How easy would it be?
2. where can i get them?
3. How much would it be?
4. Ne other suggestions?

I would appreciate nething that anyone has to say. Thanks :(

Hi Trey, welcome to TCCoA.

SC ground effects can be found in the "For Sale" section of this site quite frequently. $500 should pick up a complete set, which includes front and rear bumper covers (replaces your stock ones), and side pieces.

The bumper covers simply unbolt/unscrew, and installation is the reverse procedure. Pretty simple, I put SC bumper covers on my Cougar in a matter of hours.

Then you find a way to affix the side pieces - and paint the car :).

Kevin.

theSC fx are pretty good...they range from400-500 dollars usually for allthe parts...i you wanted to look lower, you could go with xenon for a couple hundred more(unless you are cheap like me ;) )...the SC gfx can just be bolted on, youc an find the parts on e-bay or in the classifieds section in these forums...
On an offnote, there is a kit in JCWhitney called Kobel or something like that...it's not very much, but it's made of fiberglass,not urethane like the other kits..it'll break and chip easier than the othr kits if you hit against a big bump..
Personally I would ge with the SCgfx and then lower your car..It just makes the car look a lot better... hope this helps ya...

Wes

PS...if you go with xenon kit, watch out for big dips and speed bumps..especialy if you lower your car too...just a heads up

It's so Easy.

Send me an e-mail and I'll send you pictures of my 90 base with the body kit on it with my nice looking Earl Scheib paint job... Total project cost me around $1100 which also includes a new spoiler from ebay for $50 bucks :) As for the paint job it was like $600 and the body kit was $400 or less if I remember. The key to a good paint job at Earl Scheib is to pay them for extra sanding and extra Clear coatings on the paint. Everyone who sees it thinks it looks great but I'm to much a perfectionist...

Took it to the strip @ a recent meet and the entire time eveyone thought it was an SC w/ a messed up engine cause of it's times. I have tape of the guys saying Thunderbird Sc...which is histarical if you were there :)

Send me mail if you want to see the process. [email protected]
