Uncool man.
Meant that for the 56k guys.. cause there's pics in here. I suppose the title is a little misleading.

Updated with parts and prices. Feel free to work them over, please. First item will be the rear spoiler, I think, because Kevin says he has a pre-painted black one ready to ship.

i will second the fact that the side rockers are matte black (unpainted plastic i believe), they are not carbon fiber. local dealership (brandon ford) had 6 of them on thier lot, none of them had CF rockers.

you should be able to grab a v6 spoiler for $50 off someone who is doing a gt500 spoiler,check the classifieds. I have CF mirror caps i got off ebay for $50 shipped that fit pretty nice.

dont get the v6 rear spoiler. there are much better ones out there, especially if u are buying it new.

also the center caps for the alcoas. the KRs have a different center cap which you cannot buy. shelby forces you to overpay for the ugly ones i have.

i believe the KRs have brembo or bear big brake kits with 6 piston calipers and 14" rotors (around $2k just for the fronts). you can also get the kit from shelby to attach to the lower grille bezel to make them functional.

I looked around on ebay for the CF mirror caps, and all they had were faux CF. They were about $60 though, so not bad.

I'm still trying to decide whether or not I want the v6 spoiler. I love the GT500 spoiler, but the v6 is sort of growing on me now. For the centercap, that may have to be a custom project as well, unfortunately. I think I'll settle for cobra emblems for awhile until I come up with the "perfect" design that isn't copyright but still looks worthy of the KR. =) Do you have a link for the lower grill and kit?

Thanks and much appreciated!

JMO, I think with the GT500 front fascia & Trufiber Venom hood, the GT500 spoiler is a better balance for the rear of the car than the V6 wing..

if you are doing a true clone then it needs to be the v6 spoiler

I totally agree. Not at all a fan of the V6 wing, just doesnt fit right.
