Icon14 '70 Boss 302 Stripes on an '05 Ranger Edge?

I loved the looks of the '70 Mustang Boss 302 with the stripes starting on the hood, going down the fenders then running the length of the car on the sides. I have an '05 Ranger Edge Gun Metal Grey color and I was thinking of putting those stripes on my truck with a flat black and where it says Boss 302 I'd put Edge 4.6 (after I install the 4.6 down the road. Like the idea?

Not many trucks can pull off muscle car styling, but it's worth a photoshop atleast. I wouldn't put it on before the engine goes in though..

It's actually a $50 craigslist box that used to be a pool truck box. So it was nasty, i just scuffed it and painted it.

Thanks, they are stockers that were stuck in the oven and painted. If you search 'headlight mod' you'll probably come up with the procedure.

i dont ever get a chance and the 4.3 is a pretty quick motor lol my buddy has one and he is dead set that we raced this one night even though i was heading up hill over a bridge with my cruise on 60 when he was behind me going over that and he says that was enough to prove that my truck is slow. :(
