Now that I am home from Mexico I got the front and rear bumpers off, it was easier than I thought thanks to good directions the only problem was the 2 screws behind the drivers side rear wheel were on tight as hell not sure why they used Phillips head screws instead of nuts, so I had to take off that wheel so I could get a full size screwdriver in there.

 

So the front bumper is getting the bottom center painted white and black stripes, the rear is have the black stripes painted through the license plate indent and the Midwest Autogear Radiator cover is having black stripes painted on

Oh... Just noticed you have multiple threads going on this subject (and found this one!)

 

I really didn't care for the idea of black stripes, but the car is looking interesting already. Looking forward to seeing your completed photos!! Thanks for the updated shots.

 

Good luck with the re-assembly!

Getting the bumpers back at noon tomorrow and should be back together early next week. painting the rear end while we are swapping the suspension.

 

It is my combo car all the stuff I could salvage from the totaled Black one mixed with the White one.

 

Thanks

I like it a little more every time I see it, looks like your paint guy don't mess around and gets it done, unlike the one I'm dealing with.

looking good Andrew. I sure hope you know where all those parts go! :hysterical: Can't wait to see it in person. Craig

 

 

Your tanks look awesome in the engine bay !

 

and yeah I have thought I really should have labeled all the screws and bolts I have a shelf of them that I am not so sure I know where they go ....

 

Hope the heat is not killing you in SC

 

Have a great weekend

Some photos of this past weekend's work

 

a little Por-15

Which got me thinking, how about a pay it forward drive shaft program !

 

I have the drive shaft off of the original Black Shelby with less than 2,000 miles on it, sitting around.

 

Since the Por-15 came out so good looking on the rusty drive shaft from the white one, what about my send the rusty one (from the black car) to a Team Shelby member (FREE) and they Por-15 it and than install it ( no down time) and then send their rusty one on to someone else and so on and so on and so on and if it ever stops I get the last rusty one ? ? ? ? (this was Grabber's idea on a thermostat housing for the GT500)

Is this the set-up that FordFan1 was selling or did you figure something out on your own?

 

 

FordFan1's set up and really easy to do with the right drive bits !

Great idea! If someone else has not already spoken up, I would be happy to pay it forward in the new drive shaft program. If someone has, please put me in line.

Looking good. What modification to the lower grill did you have to make? Mine slipped on no problem between the bumper cover and billet grill.
