Do those have alignment pins on the back of them, or just 3M tape? What was the retail cost?

Congrats on the GT500 purchase as well and best of luck with it!
Thank you! Yes they have locating pins and double sided tape, and they were forty-something each, I can't remember.

You added some nice carbon parts to your previous build; side skirts, rear diffuser etc. Do you have plans to give this some carbon touches?

Well, I did that because the only dual tip exhaust valance I liked was Trufiber’s and to me, if the rear valance was CF, the rest of the bottom lip needed to be. I really don’t want to change very much about this car. I know I want to change the wheels, but as of now, I have no intention of changing anything but those and the steering wheel. I will want to dress up the engine compartment with a Whipple.............. I mean Shelby stuff, so I will probably start there.

Update: Over the past month the build date was pushed from "build week of 10/28", to "build week of 11/4", to "build week of 11/11".

As of 10/05/19 my car has been scheduled to "build day of 11/15" and has been holding steady, thankfully. If things stay the same, I should see it move into production and get a window sticker in the next couple weeks.

Congrats Jaime! I know you've wanted a car like this for a while and you've worked hard for it and definitely deserve it. I hope you can have it delivered before the crappy winter weather begins. Although I'm sure you'll be spending any spare time during the winter months "tinkering" with it.

Well, piece by piece I am building my own car lol. I just prefer smooth leather over Alcantara, and I figured the carbon fiber accents will tie into the carbon fiber dash panel I ordered my car with. My GT350 wheel on my last car got matted down after a short time. I have always wanted a BeithPerformance steering wheel, so I figured, nows the time!

I do, and yes, please let us know about your GT500 journey! I have to say that after the Las Vegas media event content got published, I became more enamored with this car. Enjoy!

It's getting real now, Jaime. :like: What are thoughts on the shifter paddles being compatible with my GT350 steering wheel? Would like to have them. :please:

Well, I am only guessing the GT500 paddles fit the wheel I bought. If I’m correct, and they do, then I bet they fit yours to. I still have the red paddle extensions from my 2017 if your interested.....
