Looks bada$$ bro! I really like the Cowl hood and the CS40 Shelby wheels. Nicely done!
Is the cowl hood 4 inch or 3 inch? How's the visibility?

Cervinis 2.5 inch cowl, and visibility is good, then again I am 6'2", so maybe not so good for others.

I love the spoilerless look of the Shelby GTs.
Great job, OP.

Thanks guys, I love wingless S197s as well. The grille can be had from SD aceessories I believe and the fogs are from NTO since Shelby GTs don't come with fogs.

2.5 inch cowl, nice! Me being a whopping 5 ft. 9, I may have some visibility issues. LOL

I love that hood man. Plus the wheels and the splitter really go with the whole thing. Great job.

I didn't want it to lose the Shelby spirit, so I didn't want to make so many changes that it wouldn't be recognizable as a Shelby GT.
