which panel fits better 67-68 or 69-70 shelby?

 

As mine had a 1968 Shelby fiberglass panel originally I went with the steel one of the same vintage.

 

so its possible to modify a fiberglass panel to fit also?

That's going to look very cool when you get her all done.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

I'm looking at doing the same mod with the tail lights is there any reason you used the 68 tail light panel over the 67 panel was it a better fit? I'm looking at using a 67 panel instead of 68 as I'm not a fan of the chrome grill on the 68 lights can the chrome grill be left off or does it look unfinished?

I don't believe there is a huge difference! If you use the steel one you will need to do some trimming to make it fit. You will also need to fill in the area where the quarter extentions bolt to.

I did a similar mod to my 72 sportroof around eight years ago. I had to modify the 71-73 tail light panel to accept the Thunderbird buckets and lights. It was a bit of a pain in the butt and I think it came out pretty good. I've wanted to build another ever since I sold the car. I think it looks great. Using the Shelby panel looks like the way I'll go next time. Great job!
