what do you have against painting the interior.. with my blue gauges and blue head unit lighting i think blue panels will match well in the interior. my friend painted various parts of his white and it looks sick

Looks great.

If 91-93 Mustang lights work, go to www.50resto.com and find the ultra clear fog lights. I have a set on my Mustang and I love them.

Yeah they cost more, but the ultra clears look soooooo much better. Especially with your ultra clear headlights and turn signals.

I dont know where you got 170 from, but I decided to not be lazy and look it up. Here is the link, they are only 40 each.
