Need Shelby Cs8 Grille Install Instructions

Recommended Posts

I just ordered a CS8 grille from Shelby and thought it was the new one that had no foglight holes. When I got it there were the foglight holes cut in it. I found a place that sells the PIAA lights but i need to know how they install to the grille. I cannot get a hold of the factory brackets from Shelby so I am hopeing if I can see how they mount to the grille maybe I can get something made. If not then I may just return the grille to Shelby.

Those lights were discontinued by the manufacturer about 5 years ago and it is almost impossible to find a set anywhere.

 

I bought a spare set for my CS6 and paid double what they were originally worth.

 

I thought Shelby stopped selling the grill with the holes years ago ?

 

I would call them and find out what happened and explain you wanted a grill without the holes as even if you are

 

lucky enough to find lights you still don't have the special brackets Shelby originally supplied to mount them.

I contacted Shelby and they said this is the last grille they have and they will no longer make this one or the one with no holes. I found a few places that have these PIAA lights still for $150 a set. But Shelby aslo said they dont have the brackets anymore and i would have to make my own so I think I might just go ahead and return this grille. I was told i could just try blocking off the holes but I think it might look funny.

I would be thinking about trying the Boss 302 Laguna Seca foglamp blockoff kit. I understand it looks pretty racy and is recognized by the cognoscenti. It would likely take some adjustment, but might be distinctive and easier to accomplish than lights.

Yeah that sounds like an idea but they are round and shelby holes are oval. It would take some cutting down and would need to be glued to the shelby grille wonder if it would look ok
