The Saleen XP8 Carbon Fiber / Composite Hood and Rear Wing Spoiler
have been completely reworked, refinished/painted along with the front
end and rear bumper of my 2000 Ford Explorer Limited (Pearl White)
The color match came out quite nice - especially for a 15 year old
vehicle. I feel these parts really set off this truck without being
over the top. I've also finally installed the Saleen XP8 Speedline
Magnesium Rims on the truck which has completely changed the look.
I am due to have the truck dropped to Saleen Spec (2inches via Saleen
Lowering Blocks and Torsion Twist) this week which will improve the
look even further.
My goal here was not to create an XP8 Clone but instead just my take
on the what Ford might have done if they decided to create a limited
production model above the Limited that has some extra luxury, extra
power and some styling to set it off from the rest of the Explorer
This is still a work in progress as I have some interior changes, and motor/exhaust changes in the works to complete this project.
Here are a few pictures prior to the lowering. (Still need to clean it
up too so please excuse the dirt/road/bug grime)
