The interior is mostly stock. It has leather seats, carbon fiber broadway rear view mirror, color matching floor mats, and two tone dashboard.
Coming soon: Might be selling the T-bird if I end up bringing my dad's Camrao RS V8
Car Domain license plate frame and window sticker! Also got a beanie hat, but I gave it to my brother-in-law for making sure my car passed inspection while I was in bed rest.
New shift booth cover! Yes I know, I know! It's not a stick! So haters calm down and let me explain. I decided to put a booth because my interior would be clean, but for some reason the shifter area would ALWAYS be dirty. I would get coffee stains and I don't even drink coffee! So I decided to cover it up. I'm also going to paint all my black trim satin black.
Ok so one of the reasons why I don't have a picture of the front seats, is because the drivers seat is messed up! It seems to be something that happens to all T-birds as I noticed at the junkyard. So instead of feeling ashamed on how bad they were, I decide to go on a hunt for a new back rest. Got lucky and found a super clean one for $10!!! Freaking junkyards are awesome! I also got the drivers door sill. Mine was missing a clip. The seats are going to be hot rod style, almost like a bucket seat with no headrest! Got the idea after my brother in law was using it to lean on the couch when he was on the floor.
Bucket seat syle mod. (NOT recommended if you are worried about whiplash from a car accidet)
Make sure to paint the headrest caps to give it a cleaner look. Mine is primer gray with 2 coats of clear and it's a perfect match to my seats.
Where cars go after they die! Found some sweet supercharged 3.8 engines! I might just snatch one.
Planning on adding a push button start.
Only exterior mods are a '95 front bumper, tinted windows and 5900K super white headlights .
New black logo. Customised the colors in photoshop and printed the logo in hard paper. Is not finished in the picture, I'm yet to put either resin on top of it or add some kind of clear coat to protect it from water.
Finally painted the wing matte black. Looks awesome!
First coat of primer.
First coat of paint.
Paint was still wet. Came out better than what I expected it! I might send the entire car to Long Beach and get it fully primed and sealed for $200 and paint the car at home .
Coming soon! Black rims and tail lights!
(excuse me in the pic, is the only good pic I could find to modify)
April/18/09 Just painted the Bird logo on the tailights! Is not as flat as I thought but it looks nice! I also did the ThunderbirdLX logo but came out super crappy and I will takes pics after I fix it! I am also doing a custom Ford oval logo with my name in it instead. Next are the rims, wing and the front bumper bird.
Compton (brother-in-law) fixing my headlight alignment. Rockin' the CarDomain sticker!
Compton's new project car. '91 Lincoln Continental. It's in pretty mint condition with a very nice interior.
This is what I want it to look like.

nice, five stars
Sorry to hear about your transmission in the bird. That happened to mine as well so I put in a built 4R70W that will hold up to future modifications. Did you sell the car?
Sold it to the junkyard, no one wanted to buy it with the messed up transmission. It sucked but it was just taking space so I had to sell it.
nice t bird keep it up
