Pair of California Pony Cars Factory Color Radiator Support Cover Extensions for 2005-2009 V6 Mustangs and Mustang GTs.The factory radiator support cover stops short of covering the area above the headlights to allow for easier access to the headlight bulb. While this was done to please the masses, for car enthusiasts it leaves an unfinished look under the hood.
These covers pick up where the factory cover stops and covers the area above the headlight, giving you a finished look. Sold as a pair they feature the same color and grain as the original cover.
These are a very simple installation. Each side attaches using 2 existing bolts. Each cover has a large hole for the adjustable hood bumper
*These do not have a hole for your prop rod, you must use a hood lift strut kit.
*Will not fit 2007-2009 Shelby GT500s or 2008 Bullitt Mustangs.
The extensions completely changed the look of the front of the engine compartment in a very good way. They are exactly what was needed to finish off that part of the compartment. Plus they make cleaning that area of the engine compartment a lot easier. Simple easy fit, did it during my lunch break at work. The rear bolt hole fit perfect but had to adjust both pieces until the front bolt was all the way to one side of its hole to lessen the gap between the extension and the radiator cover but it does not hurt the overall look once you back up a step or two. I like the results.
If your looking to complete the engine bay and fix that factory mistake of not placing a full radiator cover this is your answer! These will make your engine bay look amazing and complete. If you've already install a hood strut lift system your ready to go! I did notice mine didn't fit correctly the corners near my fenders were touching a little bit a little snip under the back side and boom it fit snug. I did notice they seems a little wrapped out the box however once hood was down after one hot 90 degree day and hood weight it pretty much worked itself out. There is a slight gap in between but nothing bad at all. I have to agree with user that said these are off one shady but they are pretty darn close. If your looking for the car show look, clean everything nice and wipe covers with Meguiar's Supreme Shine protectant spray and it will blend the old with the new very well and you won't notice.
Installed on my 2008 GT, and with some modifications, works with Ford Racing Cold Air Intake (CAI)...very simple to trace around Ford CAI and cut/trim to fit. Even modified, delivers a clean look...nice product.
Bought these to finish out the radiator cover..Also getting ready for a car show..These covers do not fit good at all..There are huge gaps between the center cover and the extension even after trying to adjust it..They don't fit down on the headlight assembly..The passenger side bumper cover bolt would not thread in so I had to shave down the underside where the bolt hole is..Also had to notch the cover where it goes over the core support just to get it to fit without buckling..Not to mention the color is a shade off..Not worth the money if your trying to look good..
my 06 has cervini aftermarket 67 gt style fiberglass hood,this ads a bit more wight,the kit handled the extra pounds prety good but can fall down when in good wind. plus the bolts for the aftermarket hood are too short for the kit, I had to use longer ones to get a solid hold. over all i think the results wher great,and it was well worth it,a great value.
These do SO much to clean up the front of your engine bay. I don't know why ford decided to stop short with the radiator shroud and leave the top of the headlights exposed. The fit was great and came with all the hardware needed for the installation.
Fits the car like a glove. Makes the engine bay look more complete.
Great value- SOMETHING FORD SHOULD HAVE PUT ON....YOU LISTENING FORD?
These covers were the least expensive I could find and they are exactly alike the more expensive type molded plastic I had mine painted and they came out great and fit perfectly, cleans the front out great so question a must have for your mustang.
I really like the way it dresses up the engine area,I just wish they were cheaper!
