Do you know someone that owns or works at a Body Shop? They can order the parts at there cost. There is a guy on Ebay that sells a kitt but you don't need the hood that comes with his kit. Maybe you can see if he would delete the hood from the kit and that would bring down the cost. I got my part from Ford with my work discount. I had the Nose painted and did the install myseld, not hard to do and save money. I have the list of all the parts you will need, just pm me and I will send it. Here is a picture of my car before and after.ImageImage Just let me know if I can help you in anyway. Ted :D

I got mine from a local Ford dealer. Call KC at Clevenger Ford in California. He's got the hookup on ALL Mustang related parts. I bought my hood from him and wish I would've bought my facia from him too.

Thanks for your answer, your car is really awesome i want to do the same thing, so i'm interested on the pieces, i'll send you a PM to have the detail of each reference...to make my own conversion.
Maybe i could try to found someone here in europe France or Switzerland who selling the original parts? i think i could save a lot of money because the shipping in europe is expensive maybe 300 dollars...
thanks a lot to every body, in fact i just need the front fascia because for the hood i'll going to order the venom kr hood... for the body work i know a friend of mine and we could make an arrangment for the paint, and to fix it on the car is not a problem..i know very well the body work. But here, my friends in europe and in france the stang is a real success but it's impossible to order pieces from a body works shop here, maybe i'll going to check for a dealer around here who sell the orginal stangs here, and i think he could order the original pieces? i hope so

thanks

Could you send me the references of all the pieces needed? to make the conversion? After i could send an email to receive a personel quote from him..i think the prices are correct and mybe with a little discount..for me the best thing is to make a good deal for the shipping costs..because i think i wil need to pay taxes at the custums...pieces+shipping+taxes


thanks

Hello a dealer here said that i need to change the left and right front guards too..so it's another body work..
when you'll install the orb send us the pictures...and maybe why not to create a topic on how to install the orb?
it will be a good idea for all who want to install it...

thanks

I have the org. hood for now. There are about 15 parts that you need for the frontend. You can't just put the cover on. The headlights, grilles, front inner wheelwells, inner cover pad and some brackets need to be changed. I will post the parts list up as soon as I go to the garage and upload it to this computer.
