Re: Facelift

I like the grill. What type of material is it? Billet aluminum? And is it come with a surround or is it a replacement?

Yea, I almost put my summer wheels back on but I'm glad I didn't because we just got 6 inches of snow last night!! My summer wheels are identical to the ones you have... I love those wheels

The grille is the Saleen grille, just plastic lol, no fancy aluminum for that one. And what do you mean by surround or complete replacement?

I was wondering what to do with that, sounds like a good idea, I'll check that out. I saw on your thread you had those posted on there, did you use those at all? If so where did you put them?

Let me know what you decide to do with them, I like cool customization stuff but I'm usually not creative enough to think of things like that lol

Thanks!!
I've been wondering of it is possible to carefully cut out that blank area that is there for an emblem. If you were careful, do you think it would be noticeable?

I put my badges on the manifold cover. Kinda pointless now being that I just ordered my Boss intake from LMR.

No, I think it would be relatively easy and you should have no issues. Like you mentioned just be careful and take your time

Looks good on the cover. I love LMR, I hear alot about AM on here but everything I've bought for my 5.0 has come from them

O yea, for the people wanting the Saleen grille, it took me about 3 hrs to install the grill and the gtcs fascia. Really only spent about an hr on the grille though, pretty easy install and LMR has it on sale right now for $145 and as always, fast free shipping!!

Yea, went on sale last Friday, a week before I spent $175 on mine... Shoulda waited a week. Totally worth it though, pretty aggressive look.

Dang, I think I paid more for mine.
Along with the grille, I also added the CS/GT rear diffuser. It took me about 2 hours to install. The tabs that held the the diffuser to the bumper right at the license plate was a pain in the arse to separate! Click image for larger version
