i finally picked up the 1/12 Shelby. i was just going do the Shelby as a Shelby but figured theres already to many on here and i like being different so i'm making a mild custom 5.0 Mustang.

the rims are from the 1/8 t-bucket and they fit perfect in the Shelby tires and look awesome on the car. i just need to figure out how to do the mount backings.

i'm using the 5.4 but i'm making new valve covers, new intake and intake tube and intake cover. it will look "like" the new coyote 5.0 mill. heres the start to the engine cover. had to cut the TB out off the Shelby system and will make it fit the new intake.

Nice work so far. I wish I would have sourced some wheels when I did my build.

I'm interested in the trunk opening, I just cut the trunk today and wondered if I got in too deep. Will you be posting progress on the trunk?

ive been working on this slowly off and on as im doing smaller projects. i been trying to decide on some kind of body kit for this. so ive cut the front bumper off and lowered it down, then added a rear air diffuser, and working on side skirts. but may have to some how lower the ride height more. the bumpers and side skirts are looking to tall now. ill post more pictures once i finally get a chance.
