• Almost complete - 2000 Ford Explorer Limited with Saleen XP8 Carbon Fib

    From Spanks@21:1/5 to All on Wed Sep 16 08:18:18 2015
    From my previous two threads




    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
    model line.

    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)

    The photos are fairly high resolution - so please be patient while
    they all load. You can click on them (or pinch to zoom on mobile) to
    zoom in or go full screen.
