It is the end of October and Sema is right around the corner. With Sema only 7 days away, we felt the pressure to complete our latest product under the NXT Generation product line: The 2007-2009 GT500 Full-Length Radiator Cover Panel.
This 2007-2009 Shelby GT500 one piece full-length radiator cover is designed to improve/clean up the appearance of your engine compartment with a factory OEM look. The factory radiator support cover stops short of covering the area above the headlights to allow for easier access to the headlight bulbs. While this was done to please the masses, for car enthusiasts it leaves an unfinished look under the hood.
California Pony Cars picks up where the factory cover stops and covers the area above the headlights, giving you a finished look. This is a direct replacement that installs using the factory hardware for a very simple 20 minute bolt on installation. It also features similar color, grain, and details as the original with correct contour to the core support for a factory fit. This Mustang GT500 radiator cover panel is made from durable heat resistant material to ensure long product life and gives the engine bay a clean, subtle, and factory OEM look.
California Pony Cars one piece full-length Radiator Cover Panel really cleans up an area that, by factory design, looks like something is missing. We have incorporated clearance holes on our radiator cover that allows for the adjustable hood bumpers to operate in the same stock position. Also included is an optional trim bezel for the CSM# badge that is used on certain specialty models. This bezel allows a small window to be cut into the radiator cover to show off the CSM# badge that is attached to the core support just above the head light and attaches to the window cut out to give a clean finished look. (Due to inconsistencies with the CSM# badge locations, we are unable to pre cut this badge window.)
Since our radiator cover panel replaces the stock piece completely, it will eliminate the hood prop rod mounting point. A set of California Pony Cars (CPC) - NXT Generation Hood Struts is recommended to lift and hold the hood up without a prop rod. (Our panel will also work with all other hood strut kits on the market.) This cover will fit under the stock hood or any aftermarket hood. It will also work with most aftermarket cold air induction (CAI) systems.
Proudly made in the USA with a limited lifetime warranty.
