I like to disassemble things.
They look good in pretty much any color that matches the body.

Those strut caps will clean up the engine bay, they really do with my 2014.
Engine bay looks show ready!

Jaime, I just ordered a set of the covers in PB with black lettering. I have strut covers but they are black and will be interested to see yours when you get them.

I finally received my RPI cam covers. They are painted Ford Performance Blue, with white accents. I have purchased many RPI painted products over the past 5 years, they always do a great job.
Do you have a link to RPI?

Thats gonna look good Mark, I look forward to seeing them on the car.

I briefly thought about having the caps painted, with the graphics white, but I think the black plastic look is the way I will keep them. Here is an updated picture he sent me.

I only wish the mat he had them on was updated too, lol. Can you say 70's porn?

You are right. I am keeping mine black and I don't need anymore GT500 or Cobra's under the hood.

Without plodding backwards, Jaime, did you use this RIP outfit for yours? I'm wondering because the site doesn't show 2020's. are the 15-19 strut towers the same? I'm assuming they must be.

And Mark, I don't know whether I'd want painted letters or logos either, me thinks all black would be fine.

And Jaime, those appear to be made from a mold, not a 3D printer...at least that's my guess.

Yes, RPI is who I use. I ordered the ones for the GT350, and they are a perfect fit.

I asked the guy I am working with, they are 3D printed.

EDIT: Wait.... are you talking about the strut tower caps, or the painted cam covers?

The painted cam covers are from RPI. They are the ones that fit the GT350

The strut tower caps are a project I am helping someone do. When they pass test fitting on my car, he is going to sell them.

The strut towers themselves are the same across all 2015-2020 mustang models. The only difference will be the height of the strut studs, and if the car has a strut tower brace. Our cars have a unique, and new to market, strut tower brace. This has been most of what the test fitting I have been doing is for.

Tob: They DO look good in white...heck, they ALL look good, really. Too many years have passed since I pulled one and with my luck, I'd have oil leaks everywhere (but pretty cam covers.) :-)

On another subject, I was doodling again and came up with a design that I thought you might find some interest. Probably better to just show you the eye deer. :-)

Very James Bondonian. A drone/car all in one. Where does the line start?

Took delivery of the heat shield for my 1320 Junkie WD152 today. Super simple install, only 2 bolts.

I also got 2/3 of my Lloyd's mats today. I wanted to bring a little more color into the cabin, so I had the edging done in silver to match the embroidery on the mats, and to tie in with the color on the seats and door cards.

I went with these for the cabin mats. I really wanted to hold off for the new cobra logos for the front two mats, thats why they aren't here yet. I gave up waiting for them and ordered ones exactly like the second row.

After many emails with Lloyd's, I learned the process of licensure of the Shelby name, and Ford cobra is a pretty big hurdle, and it will take a very, very long time. Perhaps years, if they even decide to design one.

I went with the signature for the trunk mat.
