Boss 302S production shots

Looks like there was a media event down at AAI showing the Boss 302S build.

Check out the pictures from the Boss 302S build:

Looks great! How can we order the grille with mesh fog openings? Or can we just buy the mesh material and cut out the plastic in our stock grille? I couldn't figure out a way to attach the mesh if I cut my stock grille.
 
You mean like this? ;)

Here's Autoweeks coverage as well:

I'll take some close up pictures of the grille modifications. It's actually pretty simple.

Can't wait to c it. Ty!
 
It does. There was a delay in getting the Sachs dampers so those cars are being built with standard dampers and will be retrofitted when the correct dampers arrive.
 
Gary, did you notice the closeup of the brake duct attachment, that they also removed the wire to get the duct over the shield?

Back when the FR500S was released these came with the car...........

FR500S Parts List

I'm sure there will be a parts list for this car as well.

Hmmm. Hey Mark when you state it's a stock 444 HP motor doesn't no emissions and race gas add at least a little bit of additional HP? ;)

While in theory it might add hp the reality is that in both series the Boss 302's run in they are running restrictors.

The brake ducts are standard Boss 302R parts. They require you to cut up the lower fascia to install. I believe they are available but the price is pretty high. On a street driven car that is open tracked the Laguna parts work very well and would be my recommendation.
