'18 Edge Sport w/ Full SS Tuning body kit, 22s, and bagged

Recommended Posts

So I'm going to start off by saying that I'm back, but most of you probably never knew I left. I stopped in a long time ago and made a post about my '15 two toned Electric Spice Sport. Well since then I was in a pretty traumatic accident and my love was destroyed, but somehow I managed to come out alive. I will say that it saved my life and I'm a VERY fond believer in that.

After the accident I started shopping again and found myself a Lightning Blue Metallic '18 Sport. Everything else is a blur after that. I started spending like it was going out of style, but it was a sort of coping mechanism for me after the wreck. I'm sure many of you can get where I'm coming from. After the purchase, I got with my painter and was ready to get it into the body shop to install the SS Tuning body kit and front splitter that I had originally purchased for my 2015. I ended up purchasing a set of used 3pc AMF Forged 22x10.5 wheels that had originally came off a Edge that was built for SEMA a couple years back. The car also got a different stance using the H&R Springs that everyone knows and loves, as well as a Addco rear sway bar. After I got all that ironed out, I scheduled a photoshoot and here's a few from the group.

And from there, I started working on the little things. Completed a full stereo install.

Full two step paint correction...

Minor change, but new blue spiked lugs

And most recently, I installed Oracle Colorshift underglow and wheel rings....

Next piece of the puzzle is to start on the interior. Plan is to wrap most of the trim pieces in Hexis forged carbon fiber and then all the stainless trim will be color matched to the outside of the car.  We all know its NEVER done so we will see where it goes from there. 

 

Thanks for looking. Please ask any questions and feel free to comment.

Wow... I just saw the picture of your wrecked '15!... :( Glad you got out of it alive!  About your "new" '18 Sport, It looks beautiful...The stance, the wheels, and especially the color... looks great! :2thumbs: Personally, it's the grille which I'm not too crazy of, but other than that, it looks beautiful!  Great job!:thumbsup:

That is one beautiful tricked out Edge you have there ESedge. :2thumbs: Yours is the first Edge I have ever seen with that body kit. Others have done the front splitter but you did the entire kit with an awesome paint job.  Props

Hi, glad to hear you were ok after that accident. I wanted to know if the ss tuning body kit gave you any issues with the parking sensors? I wanted to get one for my 18 sport, but had concerns over that. Anyway,  the new one looks great! Good luck with future mods and stay safe

So it has been a long time since I last posted. I mean a LONG time. I am just here to update this post. 

 

So since my last post I had my stock hood modified and installed a GT500 center vent and 10-14 Mustang GT side vents into the hood. I got tired of the fact that there was no aftermarket option available so I had my painter(s) get me fixed up.

Over last winter I did a lot of work to the car. I had some more work done to the hood. I blew my 2 piece wheels apart and had the center sections powdercoated to something that would really get some attention. I also tore my headlights apart and re-retrofitted them. I color matched the reflectors as well as the projector shrouds. I took the HID projectors out and replaced them with bi-led projectors that were also etched with the "Ford" emblem and also have  demon eyes installed and added new DRL strips. I now have a set of dual projectors that work on low and high beams.

Also as of recently, within the last couple months, I had installed air ride on the car which has been a major change and I am so happy with it!

This has been the majority of the changes. I am extremely happy with the car and how it looks.

This thing is sweet! What part of Indiana are you in? I recognize IRP in a few of those pictures. Also, since this is bagged now, what are you doing with those H&R springs?!

I'm from Muncie. 

 

The H&R Springs were sold to another Edge member in Wabash. After he bought them he never installed them and bought coilovers.

I had no idea you could put coil overs on an Edge.. Any links to the parts or where to get that. 

Next your ride just keeps getting better. I mean better than any SEMA Edge I have ever seen, and that air ride can put you down so low whenever you want, that gophers have tp duck their heads. And that hood of yours is awesome great job!!!

There are a few different options as far as coilovers.  Main options are BC Racing and D2 Racing. I was and still technically am running the BCs.
