Folks, That grille is incorrect. Those look to be GT brackets turned around. Don't waste you money on this grille.

Good catch Mike! I thought it looked wrong too. I am not home to compare, but I think that the GTCS brackets are 3 rows wide and I know they don't start at the bottom row grid-more like third row from the bottom.

Ok so not to hijack-what is the market for the repos of the brackets? Can anyone guess how many pair would sell a year - just guesses...

I emailed the guy with the fake grill when it first popped up on ebay. He insists it is a to spec GT/CS grill. Hope nobody falls into that trap. A big ticket item for something that is not correct. Anybody checked in on Delta Bay Mustang to see if they are making the brackets for the fog lights again?

I called Delta bay today and spoke to owner Tom..he said that the guy who reproduced them passed away and he is getting some else to make them and it will be aprox 1 month before they can have them in stock, but he has several back orders and I gave him my phone number so he can call me when they are in...the price was (Dont know if still will be) $89.95 per pair.
