Question Lower Grille on Front C/S - 2007 Mustang Shelby GT

My story is this. (Copying and Pasting from other thread I posted in, and not all of the story is necessary)

Quote:
I got this Shelby GT December 26th, 2009 --had my dad bring it home. (I had no training with manual transmission) The car was in pretty much mint condition, and was stored in the garage; training would be in order before spring hits.

My dad would have me turn on the car, simply to show relatives the halo headlights, the sequential taillights, and the blinkers on both. Oh, and of course the sound of the exhaust.

One day, my dad had me turn my car on, just to try to get me to get a feel on accelerating gently and reversing. (Pretty much a rocking back and forth motion) However, something horrible went wrong, in my confidence, I forgot to check to see where everything was. (Hand break, and gear) My dad turned my car off last, and he left it in first gear, without the hand break on. I let go of the clutch... AAAAAAND... WOOSH! With the temperature my car was at this entire time (since it's winter), the RPMs were already at 1.5k and my car made a mad dash to the back of the garage, climbing the debri in front of it. I had my feet on both the clutch and the break so fast and so hard that I thought my legs were going to break upon impact. I spared the car any major damage (and the house), but my fog lights were bent in a complete 90 angle, so they faced the ground. (the plastic around the fog lights chipped too )

The whole incident left me with a sickening feeling in my gut, and pretty much demoralized me. However, I've gotten a lot of training in since then, particularly in the better weather. (40 and above)

But, I recently discovered to my horror, that the decline from the driveway into the garage is too much for my car, and saw that it left some scratch marks on the very bottom of my chin spoiler. You can't see them unless you can see under it, but it still hurts knowing they're there.

I feel like I've committed domestic violence towards my car; and I do plan on fixing it when I get the money... >_<
Aaanyways, when I did that little stupid accident, I noticed I can see my bottom radiator through the chin spoiler; and I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to be like that. Also, and forgive me for my idiocy, the circle things near my fog likes broke off. Do I need to buy an entire new C/S for my car? If so, where can I buy the same chin spoiler? If not, where can I buy the parts to replace what is missing.

Once again, I'm really sorry if this is a stupid question... I'm still not completely savvy with what is what. (not really a techy....... yet.)

Thank you for any feedback!

If you contact shelby performance parts they will be able to get all of the parts you need. You may need to give them your vin # and csm#. As far as the opening to your radiator they have a grill which fits perfectly into that spot and looks fantastic and very easy to install providing you get the front end off the ground. As far as the honeycomb plastic material which houses your fog lights you can purchase them also but I think you can only purchase in pairs one on each side, make sure you get the ones with the holes in them to house the lights. The car initially doesn't come with fog lights this was a mod someone added to the car. Also I would remember the part # of the chin spoiler as since the car sits so low I am always hitting mine, I should replace mine soon.

I have the C/S front fascia and you can see the condenser and radiator thru the opening. Silver Horse Racing makes a grill to cover this area, but if you dont want to drill holes for the front plate and use a plate holder you cannot install this piece.

By chance could you take a picture of the front C/S looking directly at your car and share it with me, please?

Here you go, this is the best I can do, the car is in storage and the garage is a tight fit.

Thank you! I thought it looked a little weird that there wasn't anything covering the radiator there, like a lower grille, or something.

Atleast now, I know that it didn't bust off because of something I did. xD
I still think it looks a little weird without something there though --with direct light in that area it just seems 'off'.

Anyways, thanks again! Just have to replace the two honeycomb-like circle things that DID bust out. :

Oh that would be better due to the fact it matches your grill

That grill is black it also comes in chrome. I think you upper grill is chrome it would look better to keep with the same look.
