    I would like the side stripe without the lettering but since you have the racing stripes I think those make your car look great without the side stripes. One or the other is my preference.

    Neat, so that's a MY19 with a factory GT350 front end? Aftermarket? I can't quite tell what's going on with the headlights, new or old (i.e., GT350) style?

    Very cool !

    Just waiting for new wheels to come in at this point. Here is a couple shots over the process.....

    long story short, I went and looked at a new Shelby GT-H, and liked the car, but the price was absolutely ridiculous for what you get. A couple grand in fiberglass body pieces that don’t fit as good as OEM, and a coupe grand in springs, Katzkin interior, Borla mufflers, half shafts and stripes adds 38k to the price of the car??!?

    Decided to build a better car, for much less money. (tried to have pics in order, but failed) 363A20F1-42FC-4EA5-B394-6CDE76E101D3.jpeg 53BA0717-AF4C-4487-80BF-F3C09178BA49.jpeg 6D203A2F-88DF-4448-9E0C-9B599170904C.jpeg 80774536-3CEA-4456-AE1B-4E72360F9A90.jpeg 1DCCADDF-0550-47D9-A00F-0FE1E45C28DF.jpeg 0A635CD6-6821-4981-BA26-7DD187D2C633.jpeg 9C11B16D-F4DC-4307-B60A-C3D20BBD1ED0.jpeg CEFC6EBE-AF55-41FC-A8EB-2A163696194A.jpeg C17FEC5A-A10B-4B2F-BCC5-B5DE3868309A.jpeg

    Front half of cars body is all OEM GT350, except the headlights. I went aftermarket on those, because they were half the price, and I like the look of them. Hopefully they work good.

    Still trying to figure out an overlay for the grill badge. Don’t really want a 350r badge on it, and was hoping I could just remove it from the grill. Not quite that easy.

    Wow really amazing work!
    How much fabrication was involved in swapping the entire front end body work with the GT350.
    Just curious how much it cost in parts for that project?
    Love it!

    Thanks!

    On 18-19, there are two small brackets that are spot welded to the front structure that need to be changed (Doesn’t apply on 15-17). Other than that, everything is bolt on. The OEM parts total was about $6300.00. That included everything, including all of the fasteners, etc., and side skirts.

    Would have been about $700 cheaper with the regular GT350 splitter/grill/etc.

    R Brakes, spindles, axle shafts, exhaust, supercharger kit, steering wheel, Shelby airbag, wing, stripes, Katzkin interior, shifter kit, and wheels, was another 18k.

    Total invested with paint was about 26,000. Car cost me 41k, so i have about 67-68k in the completed car.

    I have the new wheels on it now. 519C4EA5-633E-4246-9F89-5A0F29936E1B.jpeg
