Recommended Posts

hmmmmm this kit and the supersnake hood may be in my future.

 

Jer I see online the magazine was 6.99 I believe? Plus shipping thats around 17 dollars for the magazine. Would a barnes and noble or some place like that around me have this magazine for shelbys online price? Or no it would be more expensive probably?

How is it that discussion about the magazine has found it's way into several unrelated threads? Must be a hot topic.

 

BTW, I've checked several local CVS and Walgreens stores and none have it yet.

I know how you all feel!

Remember, I'm not just an employee of Shelby American, I'm also a client.

I've been buying a bunch of parts for my latest project: a total rear end rebuild. New upper control arm bracket and adjustable control arm, de-rusting and painting the axle housing, 3.73 gears, Eaton True-Trac diff, new diff cover, Moser axles, ARP studs, new bearings and seals, Baer Extreme+ rear brakes... whew!

 

I subscribe to the lazy man's theory: "May as well do it all while I'm IN there"!

LOL... I'll ASSume you mean the "significant other".

My wife loves cars, she has an MCA Edition 2012 Mustang that we're gonna make into a GTS. She "gets" it. We were looking at a Cobra for sale recently, it's an automatic, and someone told her "See? You can drive it, too!".

I swear, her blood pressure surged.

+1 to some pics. Trying to figure out how to justify this one to the wife!! :headscratch: The Alcoas were a wedding anniversary/X-mas gift parlay. What's left Valentine's/B-day gift?? Or do I go MLK/Presidents Day/Easter gift??

 

Jer, you doing this to me ---> :drop:

 

Pretend you won it at a lottery at a car show :hysterical:

We were not able to fit it in at SEMA, we're already bringing a bunch of cars. The kits will be available very soon (weeks, not months), and I'll announce the pricing ASAP.

In the meantime, the new Shelby Annual magazine has a great article with lots of photos, I highly recommend it for anyone thinking of this kit.

Any pics of the kit from the front and rear. Sorry the pics you posted not really doing it for me. Not sure why. Maybe the black color (on the checkered floor??) or because its not a GT500??? I know from the side the cars are the same but maybe its the hood?? Gonna have to find the magazine soon!!

The pix don't do it justice. It really does look far better in person.

I just snapped them today to give everyone SOMETHING to look at. Those are the three I took. I'll see if we've done an "official" photo session with a REAL photographer yet, and post a bunch.

 

 

Thanks!

We are in Vegas this week for SEMA and made the ritual trip over to Shelby, the blue GTS looks stunning with the wide body kit no doubt.

I read the write up in the magazine and I still don't understand how they mount the rear panel without taking off the roof as well since its all one piece. For a second when I was reading it sounded like the wide body kit sticks on to the existing rear panel but I am pretty sure in the pictures the rear panel was off so I am just confused how this installs.

Har Har Jer lol.

 

Ok so then you guys install this but sticking it on top of the factory panel? Because I know with the mustang RTR-C which was fully carbon fiber when they wanted to replace that panel they had to cut that crap off down to the frame and there were no pictures like that in the magazine.

To bad they did the 05-09 prototype on a black SGT (vs. another color). Black makes it difficult to see the details when photographed.

I just noticed but the shelby wide body kinda makes the car have the rear like a FGT where the rocker panel extends outwards toward the end. Granted it looks better on the FGT but this is pretty awesome looking too.

I'll post some WAY better pix soon. Even in black, the pix are a lot nicer for seeing the details.

If they make these available in CF I would be all over it. But I'm sure that would double the price of the kit. If they make a CF version of this they have to make a CF SS hood.
