The general location is this:
/FTL Faster Than Light/resources/resource.dat-unpacked/img/ship

If you installed within steam it will be in:
Program Files(x86)/steam/steamapps/common/FTL Faster Than Light/resources/resource.dat-unpacked/img/ship

If the FTL directory isn't labelled as "FTL Faster Than Light" it is because I don't know much about the DRM free version of FTL, and if the Program Files doesn't end in (x86) it isn't a problem.

Of course, u need to unpack the dat files so u can mess up with the content inside.

The dat files are not unpacked by default, only when u install a mod, GMM unpacks em. U can use some programs in the main thread to unpack the dat files from the game to any custom directory u want.
