Looks good, doesn't fit correctly
Installed the top grill in under 15 minutes to an 11 Shelby. Everything fit, looked good. Bottom grill was bent on delivery but easily bent back. There are 4 holes in the bottom billet grill to mount it to the OEM grill. The bottom two holes worked. The top two holes would not fit the screws provided. In addition, the space between the billet slats were too narrow and would not allow the screw heads to pass through. I could pry the drivers side top slats out enough to slip the screw in with grease. The passenger side would not budge and I had to force the screw through. Once I had it through the fun was just beginning.
Both bottom billet grill, top mounting locations, were placed so the screw came right into a metal support beam that crossed the bumper. I was able to bend the drivers side top screw down slightly to get the nut on the screw and was lucky to get it tightened. I was not as fortunate on the passenger side top. I tried everything to get the nut on the screw and make it fit between the original grill and the metal beam but was not able to do so. I spent an hour mounting the bottom grill and made it work ... but not as designed. Someone needs to redesign the bottom grill mounting holes.
