Not textured... glossy. (Whatever that piece between the headlights and the grille is).

That GO pic just changed my mind! I do believe Tom is right, the TR side covers would be a great match.

Having said that, I think the gloss black would look good for Leo, but not sure about going all the way across with it.

Yes... even in black, but leave the radiator cover alone.

Comparing the pics of the black stang above and this pic of mine it looks as if the ext cover will clear the CAI.

I wonder what can be done about that hole for the prop rod. It would be nice if they offered to cover it... I may be asking for too much though.

In regards to what Leo was saying about the 'textured' vs 'smooth gloss', I'm leaning towards the smooth. It just seems it'll flow better coming up from the front bumper.

I guess you haven't been following along at all on the other post... they will offer plugs for that hole.

And they also said it will clear aftermarket CAIs.

Hmm...So you guys think it would look good in gloss black? I guess I'd have to see a pic first. Picturing it in my head it looks akward. Like I said I guess I'll wait and see before I make my final decision.

Stating... that's the only option (that will look good, anyway).

No, I'm not subscribed to it.. maybe I should.

A plug? I'd have to see it.

That's good news about the CAI.

So what I want costs $99?

Yup. You can always change out the center stock cover if you don't like the look of just the sides being gloss black.

I'd wish they'd post some pics of the high gloss finish and the basic $59 look.

You can't miss this post, Bill:

And, yes Leo... I think the gloss black would look good, too. I may have mentioned it, but I think they should match that piece that is between the headlights and the grille.

Yes Bill what you and Tom want costs $99. I guess your right Bill it's easier to add later than buy it all now and have to ship it back.

If you go to their website and click on the pic of the ext covers there's a slideshow of zoomed in pics. One shows the GO with just the GO covers and one with GO all the way across.

I still say leave it black. Even if it was $20 for the color-matched radiator cover, I wouldn't get it.

I'll also paint those bolts with my PW touch-up paint.

Wow your pretty adamant about leaving the factory rad cover. Good idea about painting the bolts with some touch up paint.

Sometimes it's just too much. The hard part is figuring out where to draw that line ---------------------.
