My experience was very similar but different.  When I brought my car to Shelby American for the GT/SC upgrade. When I was picking it up I mentioned to Bud that I was getting the dreaded lanyard rust and they hadn't noticed it.  [Which was odd because I was in Colorado low humidity and the car never saw rain].  Anyway, Bud made a phone call to Scott Drake and I went over to their location and asked for the right person and was handed a set for no charge.  Bud installed them while I waited.

So the ones they replaced were they the same material as the rusted ones?

No, there was a redesign - new material I think on the braided metal to the screw terminations - but it was so long ago I don't remember.

The lanyards in my new billet kit look the same, with the exception of rotating balls at the pin end, to keep them from getting twisted.....clever design. :thumbsup:

Nice to hear. It's amazing how something so small can be so irritating. This new set is holding up very well with no signs of any rust...woohoo!
