    They're done post-production.

    I see Mr. Jackson opted for the Christmas wheel center paint option. :wink:

    It will be interesting to see how much time this will take.

    ProT: I agree on the mirrors and wish Ford had opted for that instead of black.

    With all the contrast of black and body color on the front nose, which looks dang perfect to me, i don't understand why they didn't leave the contrasting mirror caps....or heck charge for the option

    I was surprised to see the wing on the car though. I thought it and all the other CFTP-specific parts were installed at the mod shop. From what I can tell in the photo, it LOOKS like the wing comes protected from the factory and they leave it on. I wonder if it stays on for shipment?

    LP: Just a suggestion, (and I understand protecting one's images very well,) but if you need a watermark, could you please not put it on the subject of the photo?

    Here's a copy for anyone who wants it and that IS a cool green. Just wish it had been completed before the photo as the Christmas-colored wheels are a bit distracting. :-)

    I didn't want a GT500 because of the of the no manual option. I have to say though this green looks awesome. If it were available I might have lived with the DCT!

    Charlie: All I can tell you is, enjoy manuals as long as you can because...the day WILL come when you tire of dealing with a clutch. Have fun!

    is it me or the picture? but the front fender looks like it is lighter/has more metallic flop than the door.
    the lighting angle on the top rear of the fender and the top font of the door are the same curve so it should be perfectly matched.
    the color looks awesome btw

    Davis: I think what you're seeing is the curvature of the rear fender starting at the door which curves out, causing more shadow.

    Because this car will possibly try to make the B-J auction in LV next month I would suggest that the Mod Shop maybe did as much as they could do such as install the rear seat delete and the CF wing but just waiting for the CF wheels to arrive in order to put on the Cup 2 tires and then install on the car.

    I suggest that the CF wing will probably be shipped to each dealership with the white plastic wrap in place and no different than the way that the Mod Shop ships the R models with the rear CF wing also having the same plastic wrap intact.

    :)

    Never having purchased a new GT-350R, I wasn't sure what Ford would do so thanks for the info, it's pretty much what I expected.

    LOVE that SC Rambler!

    They still need to paint the side stripes. I am not sure if it is getting OTT stripes, this is all that was on the Window Sticker.

    Does anyone know if Ford got paid for the car or did they just give it to them/him?
