I enjoylooking at the builds from current and previous owners and have gotten a lot of ideas from what i have seen. I dont like the corvair tailights on the early GT40s so I am going with the 2005 type round tailights. I like the front LED flat lights on the new GTs so I will do that up front. It will be an everyday driver so it will never be seen at Pebble Beach and I may put a trailer hitch to pull my39 Ford teardrop trailer.
Welcome to the forum.

Have a look at the '17 GT front lights before you make final plans - they are
massive. I used to program these cars at the factory and can tell you the
lamp assembly will make a pumpkin seem tiny.

They are also CANBUS based operation which means you'll need a controller to
make them operate (1 per light).

It will take some heavy mods to make them fit. Anything is possible however!
