Shelby GT Upper Grille Install??

Looking for some help with the Shelby GT-h Upper Grille installation on my 08 GT/CS. I was not able to get my hands on the housing, as they are sold out and not selling them anymore at shelby.com.

What I have heard is that you have to modify the old grille. What parts do I cut and where does the grille bolt too? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Ryan

Yeah, I checked with partscheap.com. They said they are not carrying them anymore. Its too bad.

I tried to modify my stock Gt grille and I destroyed it. Cant seem to find any info on the installation anywhere. I know the Shelby GTs had the stock grille modified to fit the Shelby grille.

I ordered mine from north American tuning 3 weeks ago. Granted it hasn't come yet, but there are others out there. It's like nails on a chalkboard to hear about cutting up good gt grilles! Oh no!! Haha just keep looking.

Freaking FedEx will not leave the grille surround. I don't understand why if you pay to have something brought to your door, it doesn't show up for days and days and you eventually have to go pick it up yourself. Really really dumb.

that's my rant for the day.

Even I'm confused about what their DR policy is or even if they have one.
