Side scoop removal on 204 CS pak

Does anyone know how the side scoops are held in place on the California Special?
I like the front end of the package but don't really care for the stripes & scoops. Stripes will peel right off but not sure whats under the scoop.
If I could find a vert with the top down then this would be easy but there are none at my dealer.

Sorry to say, I am pretty sure, in 2008 C/S models, factory applied side scoops were both bolted and 3M tape..

Aftermarkets were able to use just tape

If Ford did the same on the 2011 CS, there are more then likely bolts.

I order a 2011 GT with Package 5. Its the only part in the package I really dont care for but I wanted the rest..

I will be interested in the anwser as well once someone can confirm if they are bolted on...

Good luck..

I'm with you. I will probably get the CS package for the front end but it would have been nice of them to offer more flexibility like Brembo Pkg and interior colors.

Well, call me crazy, but I already have plans to change the 5.0 front fascia by next spring to either the CS/ or v6 MCA or my own design..chrome replacement grill, CDC spoiler..who knows..Depends on price and availability by then...

I think some else on the forum said pretty much the same as me...

In the end, I will personalize to the best look for me..

Oh and yes, I want the Brembo's not available on CS????

Yes, more bucks, but its the way I like my Stangs..

Too many things I didn't like that came with or couldn't get with the CS package, but I found out you can order the CS grille and front fascia (listed as an accessary) from Ford. So that's what I'm going to do.

2006 GT, FRPP drag pack, FRPP handling pack
2011 GT ordered 1/30, off the truck on 6/21

Black GT - 401a, Black/Cashmere interior
6 spd, spoiler delete, security package
3.73, HID, comfort package
Brembo brake package, Glass top
First mod - CS front fascia

I was thinking along those same lines but then they toss in some ugly wheels with the Brembos.

It's correct that the side scoops have bolts that go into the body in addition to the 3M tape. No taking them off unless you want to work on the holes.

The Brembo's weren't available on the CS for a VERY GOOD REASON.

Brembo package included 14" front breaks and 19" wheels

CS package had many appearance mods but mainly offered unique 19" wheels

The new breaks did not clear the cali special wheels. That means they would have to put on the Brembo style wheels. You just paid for two packages both with wheel upgrades as a large percentage of the price and you only got one set. You would be throwing your money away or they would have to offer different priced options for the Brembo's when added to CS. That over-complicates things.

-Glass Roof
-3.73
-Security package

When I was looking online at a build your own Mustang you could choose different pieces. For example: you could choose a side scoop, spoiler and hood scoop as individual options. But then when you went to order the car, you had to get one of the packages. I always hated that because it seemed like you could really customize the car from the factory. (just looking at the website)

I wasn't a big fan of the side scoops but along with the CS stripe, it works.
