Does this bumper leave the car radiator exposed? I understand that it comes with the two inserts but is the middle left open?

License Plate Holes I live in Canada, and the law requires me to have a license plate on the front and back of the car. Does this bumper come with license plate holes or do I have to drill them?. Has anyone done this?

Brewtoe

  • Does not come with the holes. I would suggest getting the flip up holder found on here. There are two versions, a manual on and a remote one. Check it out. My state is stupid as well and had to drill holes. Wish I knew about these before jacking up my bumper. Good luck.

What Chin spoiler would be a match for the CS or Shelby GT front bumper cover ?

LAZRRR

  • Unfortunately we do not have a spoiler that matches the California Special GT Front Bumper Cover - Unpainted (05-09 GT, V6) or the Shelby GT bumpers. Both the CS and Shelby GT bumpers have a different front fascia that will not match up with the spoilers that we carry.

Is this all I need to convert my GT front over to GT/CS?

Vatarr

  • The California Special GT Front Bumper Cover - Unpainted (05-09 GT, V6) is designed to be a direct fit replacement for all 2005-2009 Mustangs including those V6's that have the Pony Package. The only thing you will need is to install the GT grille along with the bumper cover for the proper fitment.

    Aaron's 06 mustang v6

    I was wanting this bumper from the time I seen it on am. And when someone backed up and hit my bumper. That gave me the opportunity to get this bumper so I got it. And when I was getting everything ready to make a order. A lot of other things popped up that I wasn't expecting. You have to go with a GT grill and the lower grill insert don't come with it. So I finally made the order, bumper, grill, GT fog lights and the lower grill insert. Shipping was good. Now when I got everything in it all looked good until I started to put everything into place. If you have a v6 like I have you cant use the same factory fog light harness to plug into your GT fog lights. So I had to run toggle switches to the lights. Then the splash guards don't line up with the bottom of the bumper. And for some reason the grill don't sit flush with the bumper at the bottom of the grill. And one more thing you also have to get the fog light brackets for the fog lights, they don't come with them. But over all I like the bumper.

    I Get compliments all the time!

    The gtcs Front fascia was one of the smartest purchases that I've ever made from American muscle. I kick myself in the rear for not doing it earlier. It shipped on time and I got it painted at my local body shop. It was a direct fit and gives my Stang an entire new look. People are always asking me where I got it from. I am very excited about this installment and I highly recommend it to everyone else who wants to make their mustang look the best it can.

    amazing ptoduct

    California special front bumper, after all it is a good product, I got it sooner than I expected. I own a v6 and it truly looks way better than the stock gt front bumper. It was ready to paint when I got it and it fits perfectly. It took me 40 min to install it after I took off the old bumper. I do recommend this product and your car will stick out in the crowd.

    Lookin' good

    The fit on this bumper was perfect on my '06 GT Convertible, as would be expected for an OEM part. Make sure that all three bottom grill inserts are included, or else you'd better contact AM right away so they can tell you how to proceed. Overall, it looks great! I left the bottom part of the bumper unpainted at the advice of the body shop, because they said that because that bottom part has a texture, it could lead to paint chipping more easily. My car is black anyway so it's not a big deal, but if your car is a different color, you might take that information into consideration.

    Great custom look!

    My 06 was purchased for a great price because the previous owner did not fix the original bumper, some small dents and other large scratches. The customization with this bumper "that fit perfectly" and a few other beauty items before the custom paint job gave me a show quality car at an "off the lot" price! Thanks AM!

    Aggressive Awesome!

    This bumper changed the attitude completely on my 2008 Mustang! It was very easy to paint, being it is OEM. The fit was fantastic! Bare in mind, you will have to replace your "Inner Fender Splash Shields" on both sides of the car if you have a (V-6) model. See the following item numbers for more details: Item #100558 and Item #100559.

    Great OEM piece shipped well and protected in side foam wrapping and then packed inside a box. Zero damage when i took it out of the box. Paint shop even commented that it didnt need any prep work. Painted it Vista Blue and it turned out awesome. I'd highly recommend this mod for your Mustang.

    CS Front Bumper Cover

    I always wanted to replace the pony package front bumper, saw too many with it. I finally got to replace it after hitting a piece of tire on the highway. Got the bumper fairly quickly. The box was a little banged up but the bumper cover was it perfect shape. Brought it to the body shop by my house and had them paint her up and install it. The guy said it looked sick, and I couldn't agree more. I finished the whole front end off with the black billet grille. Looks fantastic!

    Amazing Part

    I own a blue 2006 v6 Mustang Pony Package. I replaced the front end and hood after someone backed into me at college. I had debated on which front end I wanted, and after Shelby discontinued the CS6 front, this was my next option. And actually, I like it better. The part shipped well and in good shape, so little prep was needed. The bottom part of the bumper is textured, which may be something the shop points out. Mine suggested leaving the bottom black to match the black side skirts on the v6, but this gives it more of an attached chin strap look. I painted it stock CS style, leaving the middle part black, and it really looks good, even with the slight texture. (No need to worry, it is an OEM part and the textured part is painted, so if the shop is worried about it, it really isn't a problem, looks or quality wise.) The front is low, so I suggest making sure you aren't going over any super high speed bumps or getting too close to curbs. (It's really not a problem, just a heads up. You might scrape it a few times, so be careful.) As far as fit and quality, it is OEM, so it is excellent. It looks amazing, an I would suggest it to anyone who is looking for something slightly different and more aggressive than stock, without getting too extreme. It is a BEAUTIFUL front end. I stated in a previous review that the shop really loved how good the quality and finished product looked, even suggesting that it should show. Everyone compliments the front and says it really looks amazing. It definitely stands out.
