I think a old-school look back to the 1969-70 style GT350 and GT500 vent hoods would be nice on the newer Shelbys ,,yes with the twist locks too . the newer shelbys would look badass to say with that hood and how about a chrome or billet brush aluminum grille ring around the inside of the grille ,,kinda like the old school Shelbys ,,I will post pictures later of what I mean .

Ya ,, alot of mustang guys and girls ,, I think would like a nice Shelby style grille to fit the 2005-2009 Mustangs ,still a very big market out there for such a thing ,, there is a metal / aluminum ring around the CS8 grille I have on my car ,,see picture attached to this post ,,,,,,, Shelby still makes the grille outside housing ,,so just need to make a grille face with the brush aluminum ring for the inside ,,I say ,,just replace the black painted grille inside trim ring on the old CS8 grille / and or CS6 / Terlingua grille and make a billet brush or chrome replacement ,,that will make the cent of the grille " pop " and stand out more like the older 1969-70 Shelby GT350 / GT500. ,,,,,,, :camera: ,,,,,Attached File  477555-R1-24-1A.jpg   141.28KB   18 downloads,,, :salute:
