If you're as deeply dedicated to the Mustang hobby as we are, you share our sentiment that nothing beats having your Pony's style appreciated by fellow enthusiasts. Yes, tight-looking Mustangs receive much-deserved props at shows, on forums, and, of course, right here in the pages of your favorite mag. And for many years now, giving a 'Stang a wicked new look has come about by way of installing a custom hood or body kits from Cervini's Auto Designs (www.cervinis.com).
As an S197 owner, Editor Steve Turner is always scanning the new-parts radar for bits that will make '05-and-up Ponies look and perform better. And because of his diligence, credit goes to Big Steve for finding this latest bolt-on body hotness from Cervini's—a sinister-looking taillight set,made specifically for '05-'09 Mustangs.
Cervini's Taillight Conversion Kit (PN 7265; $599.99) brings a cool twist to an '05-'09's rear fascia by eliminating the stock tails and replacing them with a slick pair of rectangular-shaped LED lights (highlighted by sequential turn signals) and a matte-black light panel that fills the space between. The system also includes all of the wiring and minimal hardware needed for an easy DIY installation, and it is protected by a three-year warranty against defects that might prevent it from operating normally.
