I have a full set minus the radiator piece if you are interested. I realized I needed a second cap for the SC water cooling tank.

My set has all of the 4.6 cap set except for the radiator cap, which I needed for my SC upgrade. Power steering, oil dipstick, brake fluid, washer fluid, and another for the oil fill. It has Shelby in Blue and a red cobra - like on the shelbystore.com website, not like above. I will part with this set for $99 plus $10 shipping.

They look like these. But a lot cheaper.

You can buy the radiator cap alone from Shelby for $50 and still save a lot of $.

I have a set of the "Shelby GT" ones minus the oil cap..... I got them from a friend so I could have the radiator cap for the SC to match my set. Problem is I don't have the "Shelby GT" caps on the rest of the engine, I have the red snake ones.

http://www.shelbysto...p/s5me-caps.htm

now if someone were to make a radiator cap that matches my set appear...... :idea:

This avatar kind of reminds me of my recent buddy named Timber. He was a jack Russell mix. I had to send him to doggy heaven last Christmas. I miss him.
He would play catch for hours on end.

So are these discontinued ? I have been looking at the store for the last 6 months waiting for them to
be back in stock. If they are discontinued then that would explain why I've never gotten an e-mail
saying they were back in stock. Seems you can still order them individualy but at a much high cost.

Beautiful dog, sorry to hear of your loss. My Doberman Ace died of cancer earlier in the year, it was a tough blow to my wife and I - It was while I was planning the Guitar Center event for the Bash, so I was already hectic and crazy. Broke our hearts. We've since adopted another Doberman, AND then Flannery. Our original Dachshund puppy is also going strong, so the house gets a bit nutty sometimes!

Maybe Jer can chime in here. Are there any plans to bring in these caps or perhaps a different set of Shelby GT caps? Such a hot seller, I can't imagine why they no longer sell them.

Like most things, these caps require a MINIMUM of 250 sets to manufacture. Hard to say we would sell that many...

I remember Robert Lane took a HUGE beating on them because they're made in China.

I seem to remember they stopped selling them for a time but were still selling the Project 321 caps (Made in USA).

That may or may not have anything to do with it. As far as I know, they're Drake items but made in China.

He was also taking a beating because the are COVERS, and not CAPS (you have to use your own Rad/IC caps that these glue onto).

You sure you want that job, Jer? <lol>
