A and C get my vote. Have an option to put the C spoiler on A, that would be something I'd buy.

It looks like C is the winner, it's pretty much what I had in mind. It also closer resembles the actual light I'l be using from the 2014 Mustang. It was asked if the wind splitter would work on stock valance, NO. That's because the bottom of the valance will be flat, similar to the SR nose that we make. The splitter will be flat and not at an angle like the picture.

If you want to contact me please send me an email at hotrodmtf@gmail.com and not a PM through this forum. Thanks.

We decided to make the upper stone guard and the lower valance one solid piece.

I liked C with the spoiler option as well, opening a bit better shape to better blend with the upper opening like patrick suggested.

Don't love the turn signals myself on C, and would still like to see NACA ducts or similar integrated in to the opening for ducting front brakes.

I guess what I am telling you to build is basically what I will be trying to make for myself and my car heh.

You see the masking tape and the vertical lines ? that's how wide the opening will be. We will be using the 2014 side markers and their fog lights. It should look pretty sharp when we're done. I almost thought about going all the way up to the headlights and making them into 5 3/4.

67-68 will be next since there's only an inch difference between the years. 69-70 will follow if I figure out what I want to do with it LOL.

We still need to cut in for the fog lights.

On this particular build since it's my car, I plan on doing a little nip and tuck on the Ill fitting front bumper. Once I get it fitting the way it should, I might just start making one out of fiberglass.

The more I look at A; the more I like it. I don't like B because of the extra doodads required to stiffen the lower valance. And C looks too plain.

We still have a ways to go, the bottom has to much curve and needs to be flat for the wind splitter to look right. Plus, we need to close up the gaps where the back bars come through.
