That is smoking hot! What are those billet circles in the lower grill? Are they lights or vents or what? I like them!!!

they are the cooling duct inserts for the front brakes when they are functional. The KR's have these. I thought about maybe getting these for the front as well.

Looking good! What does the rear look like? Have you centered the rear Shelby badge yet?? this is a must have as well! Smoke the tails, front signals and rear markers as well

I ran 2.5" tubing from my brake vents...drivers side comes up right under the air filter and the other side blows straight up into the engine bay toward the blower...really increases the outside air flow through the engine and cold air directly to the filter...

I haven't centered the shelby badges, did you used the stock shelby lettering in the rear? If you did have did you take it off and what did you use to stick them in there? Also my billet hoods pins kits should be here by the end of the day, so im going to be installing those and on thursday my side scoop should be installed also.

I reused mine since it's the "red stripe edition" lettering with the red inserts... you can order a center badge template off of ebay for like $20 i think, that's the route I went. Get some goo-gone and some dental floss and go to work. Have a razor blade handy for taking the excess tape off the letters after removal. It also makes it easier to heat up the surface with a blow-dryer or something. Good luck!
