I wonder if they might be interested in reproducing the Cougar version of the kick panels. The Cougar version had the holes for speakers to be mounted behind, whereas it was not available for Mustang. Mustangs did not have an option for speakers behind the kick panels, that's why the repops don't have holes.

I made new ones for mine by carefully laying out the holes (somewhat using the old for templates) and then drilling all the holes in. Was very time consuming but worked well.

For those that are considering doing this you might want to take a look at this old thread starting with the 7th post. There are lots of detail pictures. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=931

I have extra repair brackets. If anyone can use them LMK and I will mail to you instead of trashing.

The kick panels were super dirty because the hole for the speaker was present but there were no speaker enclosures so road dirt was coming in through the fender. After the repair and a quick clean they look great. Here is the before and after cleaning pics.
