The final stage for the exterior came with Dan adding an Erebuni front bumper cover and having stickers made for the side of the car with the names of his sponsors. Both styling tips may hint toward the import side, but Dan was looking for something different, and he accomplished that feat without offending most Mustang fanatics.

Besides, with quarter-mile times bordering on the 12-second zone, most competitors won't have too much of a chance to see the front of the car anyway. And remember, this is a V-6.
