Put a Boss stripe kit on the 5.0

Came out looking pretty good, if I say so myself.

But your car is not a BOSS 302. Yes it looks good, but I could not do that.

I went with the 1970 style stripes instead of the 1969, people will know it's not the current one. It's more of a project car anyway; I plan on putting in a shaker hood and souping it up a bit. There's no way I'd be able to afford the actual Boss, so I figured the next best thing is to create my own. At least it has a 302 in it.

People that know nothing about cars will think it's a Boss 302 and those that know cars will scoff at you as a poser wannabe. The stripe and 302 part is fine but I would have omitted the "BOSS" script.

Stripes are one thing but it says Boss. You bought a 5.0.

I think it looks good, but I'm with everyone else. I would have left out the Boss, but I would assume that it probably only comes that way

I think it looks great. I find it amusing when grown "men" get their panties in a bunch over decals. Just to really piss em off - Id throw a cobra emblem on there too.

I never intended to make the car look like something it isn't. I'm not trying to emulate the 2012 Boss 302; it's a tribute car to the 1970 Boss 302. It's still a work in progress.

It does look good but I don't like the Boss 302 poser theme. You can say "it's a work in progress" but the bottom line is your car will never be a real Boss 302.....regardless if you swap every Boss 302 part on your car. I suggest removing the "Boss" decal and replace it with something unique. Gotta love that Grabber Blue! Best color on late model Mustangs for sure.

Never thought it would be. Again, my goal is to make the car it's own unique thing, not copy the existing one.

I see it in the picture, it looks pretty awesome. Did you do the kit yourself? What kind of engine did you drop in?

I got it!!! You could put in a big stereo with huge subs and call it a "BASS 302".

Yes, and I supposed you have no problems telling everybody about your fake doctorate too.

Inauthentic people never seem to think there's anything wrong with being fake. (this is not directed at the OP who seems less inauthentic than "Axe").

In his defense, he's not wearing the 1969 "C" stripes the new 2012 has. Besides, the same people that nag on him for having Boss 302 stripes on his car when it's not really a Boss, are the same people that will nag on 75% of this forum for having "Z28" stripes when we're not really driving Z28's. They're just classic car purists is all; let them have their fun.

If anything, my car is the most authentic to heritage because I'm wearing hockey stripes which were available for the SS. So nyeh, I WIN.

(See how stupid that sounded?)

If I had a real boss I would remove the stripes. So I guess you know my feeling.

THANK YOU. Finally, someone who understands that I'm not trying to copy the existing boss.
