Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)



DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

    '67 Mustang

    Post  Stephen67 on Mon Apr 27, 2009 3:51 pm

    This is my 1967 Mustang. It was originally a 289 2v, Lime Gold with the Deluxe option.


    When I bought it, it had been repainted White with a 302 4v in it. Its a 4speed manual too.

    Mice lived in the headliner, the seat belts weren't done properly and dangerous.

    The day I brought it home:

    No idea why we had turn signals in the grill...




    It's currently House of Kolor's Cobalt Blue Candy over a black base. I repainted this two years ago, lot of body work. Took me 4 years to find the perfect shade of blue that did what I wanted it to.










    I've recently added a ribbed tail panel insert, something unique to '67

    And yes my car is currently really needing a wash!

    Future plans include either Torque Thrust Original wheels, or 99-04 Bullitt wheels. It has a 8" 3.00 open in the rear right now, I plan on making that around 3.50 POSI 9". As well as adding a white with silver pearl stripe on the bottom and tinting the windows. As well as '69 Hi-back seats with custom leather, and new gauges.... and sequential LED turn signals.

    I'm currently debating weather or not to drop a 351w with EFI in it before I move. No idea how long that will take. It should be a simple switch, bolt right u, (as appose to putting a big block in), but we all know how simple works. I'd just hate to get it in there to find unexpected problems then not be able to drive it if I need to. Plus I'm about to start my '56 F-600 Wink

    And all this when I'm about to move. Momma always said I didn't have much sense.



    More pictures here: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2551391

    It's also named Selene, after Kate Beckinsale's character in Underworld.

    I know some people don't get naming a car, but when you spend hundreds or thousands of hours on something, it gets a personality and needs a name Wink

    Glad to see that you came over to this site. I knew you had a Mustang, but I had never seen any pictures. Very nice car!! Really like the color!!

    By the way, have you made any decisions on the bed for your truck?

    Thank you ^_^

    I love that color with a passion too, once I move I'm going to re-clear it and super polish it. I'd do it now but I don't want to rush it or have it get damaged in the move. I don't think I'll ever not paint with a kandy again, it blows your mind when you lay it down.

    As far as my bed, I plan on shortening the wheel space a bit, then faburcating a bed that looks like a standard F100 bed, only larger to fit the rest of the truck size. The idea is to have it look stock. The Fenders will take some work, but I might not have to trim the opening like I would on a f100 because of the wheel size, so maybe not as much as I'm thinking. Should be pretty sweet Wink

    awesome car!!! i've been wanting to see it! i'm a mustang fanatic(just dont have one anymore)
    thats a beautiful colour too.
    i'm currently searching for a late 80's notch back mustang, LX, it can even be a 4 banger, just really need the car itself to do the same thing you want to do... 351... i'm very prone to the notchbacks, i missed a great deal on an old police mustang, i think it was a 91, wish i could of got it....
    good luck with your mustang!

    lol thanks man Smile

    I really love teh cobalt candy, took me 4 years to decied on the perfect shade that did what I wanted it to, lol. Unfourtantly once you paint a candy... you just can't go back.

    Good luck in the notchback search! I always liked the 'quad eyes' from the fox bodies.

    I always liked them but I never owned one. My son has had three of them. The fastes one was the '89 GT. That thing would go over 150... I know because I was in it when he did it. Now his passion is his big old Electroglide hog. I would like to have a tericked outb '67 fastback but there ain't enough time left on my clock.

    Later...

    Hi Stephen

    I really like your Mustang. I've always been a fan. I had a new 1965.
    It was a nice car, but I sold it pretty soon thereafter to buy
    a 1950 flathead powered 29Ford Roadster pickup. I just couldn't figure what to do with
    a new car. I put some wheels/tires on it and then I was done. I couldn't
    handle it. And at 20 or so-I didn't have the money or the garage to
    have more than one at a time.

    Your truck looks great too. Good luck with both.
