    Can someone please take a measurement between the bottom point of the shield to the upper line of the side grill. I just picked up a California without shields but happen to have a set of yoshi ones laying around.

    Thank you in advance for your assistance!

    OK, from the bottom of the shield to the top of the shark gill is 2 1/8".

    And, because I'm an anal retentive scientist kind of guy, I measured again after my morning espresso, 2 1/16".

    Are going to paint them or apply a sticker or a raised badge?

    All done! 6 years ago I almost brought a 360 spider which didn't have shields. Brought a set of yoshi shields even before I signed the deal on the car; ended up with a CS so they just sat around all these years.

    They look really good and wow i feel like i have a proper Ferrari :D Thank you T!

    ^ Looks good. They're properly curved to fit the lines of the Cali? Or, did you need to bend them?

    they were almost perfect the 3M adhesive could have probably held it in place. But i bent them just slightly to make it perfect.
