Hi, I'm Troy and welcome to my page. I was born in 1988 and started working on cars in 2004. My dad has taught me almost everything I know about building cars & designing parts. This is my 2007 Mustang GT that, my dad and I built (see pages 2 & 3). We named it Venom. We also built a Mustang for my Mom & my Dad. Dad & I built and painted all 3 of them. (Dad painted and I sanded)Custom made hood scoop Custom made window scoops Custom made side scoops which are functional Custom made rear bumper, we cut off the joining area of Cervinis valance, heated and reshaped it to mold it in & used a rubber repair kit to smooth it out. Custom made trunk lid and quarter spoilers. All the parts above were hand made by my dad and myself.20X8.5 front 20X10 Chrome rims :) I also got a Cervinis front bumper and made a lower custom Grille for the bumper.................................................................................................
When you finished viewing the photo's & Page 3, you'll come back up to the top and rate my ride. Thank you, Troy

31st International Mustang meet, where Americans and Canadians come to show off our rides. It was an awesome fun packed weekend. Thank you to everyone who voted for my Venom Mustang
My Venom Mustang at the Air Show July 2011
My Venom Mustang at the beach.
Cut the long antenna and gas welded the tip back onto the base. Ground it smooth and round. Painted it black again. Voila, works perfect.
Details like making a hand made Custom lower fabricated honeycomb Grille to match the upper factory grille.
New remote control wireless front hidden Venom License plate added April 2010
Jim Hall did the Airbrush work on my Venom Mustang.
The DVD Video Player also has GPS navigation built into it. The wire by the console lid is for the ipod that goes inside the console and hooks up directly to the DVD player.
We are hands free here, so I added the blue tooth that hooks straight to the DVD Stereo system. That's the iPod that hooks straight into it too.
Added Sub box in Nov 2009, fits like a glove. Bolted it in too :)
Added a trunk lid liner cover with storage. Holds my cleaning stuff :) The Painted mirrors added April 2010
Hand made fiberglass fabricated side Windows louvers, see page #2
We removed the factory 1/4 glass that sat on the outside of the 1/4 panels and had new glass cut to fit the inside of the 1/4. This way if the glass ever gets broken, it can be easily replaced, without removing the molded in window louvers. Minor details like making the louvers tilted so no water stays inside or sits on the glass.
Molded in Cevinis lower bumper skirting
The Cevinis side exhaust comes with a rear lower valance to cover the GT's rear exhaust. We didn't like the way it looked with a big ugly line going under the side marker light. Cevinis supplied double sided tape to stick in on. So we customized it fit, by cutting it, heating and re-shaping it to fit. We used rubber weld & repair kits to give it this clean line fit.
Magnaflow Side Exhaust getting installed at home.
We first installed a H-pipe but didn't like the sound with the side exhaust, so we removed it and installed a X-pipe. The X-pipe gave a way better sound with Magnaflow mufflers and the side exhaust.
JBA Performance Headers
Hand made fiberglass fabricated side scoops, which we made functional with holes going all the way through. Little details like the Grille we made for inside side scoops.
We designed & made our own molds of both the side scoops and window louvers. We also have ducting inside the side scoop. It tunnels the air out into the inside wheel opening.
Customized Venom headrests
The Flash picks the headrest up a white, but it's silver with a grey outline, same color as the car.
Jan 2010 got my new short shift shifter & shift Knob from MGW.
This has been updated March 2011 to 6 speed trany and a new short shift shifter. See page 5
Hand made Fiberglass fabricated left & right Quarter panel Spoilers all molded in.
Hand made Fiberglass fabricated trunk lid molded in spoiler with perfect fitting gaps
We designed and made molds for the trunk lid and quarter panel extensions.
Fiberglass fabricated hood with inner air channels
We also designed this hood and made a mold of it. There is channeling going through the inside of the hood for air flow.
Little details like drain holes on the rear of the hood scoop louvers and window washers nozzels were fitted to the hood. You can see by the shine where the stripes are all cleared and there is no ridges in the paint to the stripes.
Custom Venon made 3rd brake light
We had custom Venom decals made, including the side stripes.
My Uncle bought me the Cobra Snakes license plate frame to go with my Venom theme.
Downtown Vancouver in the back ground.
Cruise around Stanley Park
Under the hood we added hood struts, Venom strut bar and had all the rad covers and extentions painted. Then added the airbrushing.
Jim Hall did this airbrush work on my rad cover and extensions. Click on them to get a closeup of the detail in this airbrush work.
Added A Cold Air Intake & Shock tower Caps. Double exposed Photo shot through the hood.
Next we added Polished Value covers and throttle body parts.
We removed the black strut bar and we add a matching color Strut bar with Venom paint in the same color as the Stripes.
Looks a lot cleaner with the strut brace painted the same color, before I installed my airbrushed fuse box cover.
New fuse box covers airbrushed by Jim Hall.
Photos of the covers installed in my ride.
New airbrushed fuse box covers April 2010, by Jim Hall. Click for closeup.
Hood gas Strut bars added & another shot of the shorty antenna
My sister taking some photos of me passing her, she is driving mom's black Mustang Convert as you can see by the molded in quarter spoiler.
I don't believe I'll ever sell this ride. My plans are to keep the Exterior mostly as is, but I do have a few future mods I'm thinking of adding.
Some shots just after a car show, day wasn't that nice, but I love car shows.
Venom Airbrush work done by Jim Hall. Jim's Auto Art
Custom stripes 3/4" center, 1/4", 1/4", 10" 1/4", 1/4" on each side, then all clear coated for smooth finish. Plus the Left & right side Venom stripes. Details like making sure the "N" in Venom matched up perfect to the stripe.
New value stem covers, Thanks Sis.
No more boring blink. Added sequential Taillights. The sequential works with Blinkers, Flashers and Brake lights. Turn signal starts to blink on the inner bulb, flasher both inners
Blinker 2nd bulb lights up. Four way flasher 2nd bulbs light up
Blinkers 3rd bulb lights up. Four way flasher 3rd bulbs light up
Cops are always checking me out, got checked out on the way to the show & two more Cops at the show. It's like a Cop magnet. (lol)
Cruising with a few of my friends. I drive my ride everyday. (except Winter)
Chip Foose & his wife Lynne both signed the photo of my ride. We're buddies now, I call him Chip & he calls me Troy-CoolStang!! See the photo he signed. (lol)
My Mom's Black Venom Mustang convert which she sold on May 28th 2010 and my Silver Venom coupe at the June 2009 Mustang car show. Sorry mom, but the award was for my ride.
