KigerStang gets Shelby tail
#1
The only thing I never was fond of on the 71-73 was the rear tail lights. So I decided to put 1968-70 Shelby tails on this project.
This is a temporary setting to show the look. A new bezel with LED back up lights and chrome inlay will be added along with a custom wrap around rear spoiler.
Due to recent sponsorship agreements, this project will be going dark.
You can see the car in person at SEMA 2014 in Vegas!

In it to win it!

Thanks,
Phil

Nice. Originally I did not like the 71/73 tail lights either but they have grown on me. I think the shelby lights will look great and really set it off.

Looks good Phil, I agree about the original tail lights. Do you have any plans for the front? I always thought rectangle or square head lights would match up well with the angular front end. Kinda like the 73's tried to do with the square bezel/round light...jim

Im changing the front grille and lights. Going with LEDs on all lights including headlamps. The grill be a custom mesh similar to the 1970 Shelby with blackout or black carbon fiber wrapped bumpers.Havent decided which yet, Ill need to model it to see what looks better. I like the look of the new Camero headlamps with the halo. Working back forward so it will be another year before I get there.

Interesting ideas, would be worth a trip to SEMA to see it.
