My 13's nose job

So I decided to swap my front bumper for a Shelby bumper...and keep my grille foglights as well...well of course nothing works how I want to so I had to use the Shelby grille with the emblem as well...so the first person that says " it's not a Shelby why do you have the Shelby emblem" I'm throwing my old bumper at them!

You can't somehow take the badge off? (I don't like misbadged cars, but i don't flame people for it).... You should change the fogs to Halos, they will compliment the HIDs better.

I was going to swap a GT emblem in where the Shelby emblem is..but the black plastic is contoured to the emblem, so that doesn't work. I am gonna get Halos for the fog lights I didn't expect them to be so dim...that's why I wanted to keep my center LED lights.

I ordered the bumper from Ford...you only need a few parts for it to bolt up on the 13's.

I'm also not a big fan of mis-badged cars, I love the look though, if you did a custom emblem of some sort to make it your own, it would really set it off. Nice work, super clean.

I like it, who cares about the Shelby emblem.

I hate people that will have like a V6 and put all cobra parts on it and put Cobra across the windshield, now that's dumb.
Just a simple Shelby cobra is nothing to worry about your clearly not trying to make it a Shelby. Looks good bro.

Looks great man, was going to do the same, priced everything out already, but wasnt positive about the grille. I gotta have my fogs and dont want to go aftermarket so maybe gotta wait for a GT500 bumper clone for a GT. Are the grilles shaped differently?

Yes the grilles for the GT are not shaped the same for the Shelby....CDC has a Shelby grille for the GT bumper..but doesn't work on the Shelby.

That car in that picture I think just has the RTR Chin spoiler painted to match.

I tried to PM you, but your inbox is full. Am I missing anything for the GT500 conversion?

Looks good, it could be worse, you could be doing this to a V6. Talk about misbadged. Hahaha

You could do an entire GT500 body kit, rear bumper, side skirts (not sure if they are different), etc. and call it a GT500 Stage 1 Pony.

The green Mustang in post 21 doesn't have the RTR chin spoiler.

This is the RTR chin, painted to match. With the CDC Performance Grille and Roush lower:
