I need a little bit of help from other SGT owners. I purchased an 08 Vista Blue early this year, and I am in the process of restoring certain aspects that the previous owner had changed. One being to replace the "Powered By Ford" badges on the fenders, which I have alread found, but I need to know the placement of them. Example, at the corner closest to the front wheel, how far from the fender and how far up from strip? Also, I am reading a lot of different threads and see a few things about the factory Shelby strips: Did they only come in silver on the Vista Blue? I am looking at painting them back on, and replacing the side stripe with a painted one as well, oh and one more thing, does anyone know the font on that side strip for the SHELBY lettering?

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help!!

All Shelby GT's had silver stripes other than the BJ cars with red on black. Gold on black for the GT-H's of course.

I do not know the precise measurements but I would refer to the Grabber Orange of 0128 shown above. I would measure from the top of the stripe in at least two positions, at 90 degrees and rather than using the wheel well, which is curved and not going to allow a precise measurement, I would measure from the edge of the fender at the door. That should be a straight line. Then ensure that the badge is level. Good luck.

The bottom of the PBF badge should be parallel to the side stripe. From the bottom of the PBF badge to the top of the uppermost side stripe is 6.75 inches. From the edge of the door gap (panel side) to the back of the PBF badge is 3.25 inches.

Unless SAI used a template, which I suspect they did, there may be some variation in badge placement.

It's where the Cobra is on the GT500's. It appears to basically replace the Cobra (if ya know what I mean)...At least, location wise.

I've never done it but I've watched body shops do it. They measure, then tape it off to to make sure it's perfectly level.

Thank you to all for the help...

I am upgrading and replacing a lot of little things and some major. Will post pic's once it is completely done for all to see..

Quick opinion wanted: Leave the strip delete or I may paint them back on, but leaning towards a matte black or a lighter gun metal to match the wheels when they are done. Just food for thought, I like a darker meaner look than a bling, bling chrome, so I am also leaning to powder coat the rims in that same lighter guy metal with the inside of each spoke painted in Vista Blue. (Also like to be a little different)

Stripes should be silver.

That is why we have company cars, so we don't have to drive ours that way!

I like it just the way Carroll Shelby built it. I think the look is the best of the new era Shelby's, and Vista Blue and Silver the best color combination.

But after all, it is still a Mustang, so do your thing..
