jk89cat,
Is this what you are looking for? They should actually be painted black and not the body color.

thanks again, i am awaiting branda's catalog, a cs special book that he has and a 68 shelby parts breakdown that is supposed to really show how things like this go together . the ford catalog was very vague at best . oh btw i am a ford parts counterman. justin

I think everyone on this site would agree that Paul N's book on Cal Spec is very useful in rebuilding your CS. Sometimes you can find them on ebay. Otherwise, if you have a specific question about the Cal Spec, ask it on this site. If you can't get Paul's book, ask someone to post a pic from it. You will find it very useful.

Best of luck.

Paul

Are you missing them all? The Branda ones are FIBERGLASS, not steel like original. I was missing only one, and was going to split a set with Cesar until we found out they were fiberglass and on back order for months. An original set sold on eBay for big bucks (couple hundred). I had a wizard body shop guy make mine out of steel. Cesar made his out of fiberglass from the local store using an original as a mold - took him 20 minutes. Here is the picture of his - the top one is fiberglass, the rest are steel. He did a great job. Casey

What is the 68 Unique Parts Catalog? Where can you get this? ???

I believe he is talking about the 1968 Shelby Unique parts catalog. Most Mustang shops sell it, it discusses all the parts they put on a Mustang to make it into a Shelby.

its from jim osborn reproductions and outlines assembly and shelby componet views . it has detailed assembly pictures, and 68 shelby part numbers . lots of good diagrams and information . it was worth the 6 bucks i gave branda for it . justin
