He wanted to create a club for people to truly enjoy their cars. He knew the world had changed, and he wanted his companies to meet the needs of the new generation of Shelby owners. His vision was to knit together those people with the owners of early Shelby's and give everyone fun new ways to experience their high performance vehicles.   Mr. Shelby imagined a place where owners could talk about their latest conquests at the track, swap stories, share photos and learn new ways to hot rod their cars!

  1. The 2008 model used steel screws on the aluminum hood causing the corrosion. It is also caused by ferrous material contamination prior to Ford painting the hood. These hoods were not properly prepped prior to paint. The aluminum reacts with the ferrous material under the paint causing it to bubble. Ford has a technical service bulletin for the issue but will not fix it. There was a class action lawsuit that was thrown by the judge. All of the forums I read said the corrosion will come back. Carbon fiber won't corrode and it is cheaper than a stock hood replacement, so that's why I am going that route.
  2. SPP Sales

    I know the 4 piston brembos front kit will fit if you use a wheel spacer. I wanted to maintain a stock style on my car, so I upgraded the wheels to 20in torq thrust m (american racing) If you order the correct offsets the wilwood kit will fit with the american racing wheels. I ordered the shelby/wilwood 6 piston front brake kit. I can confirm fitment after I complete the install.
  3. I would be in for a group buy. When were you planning on getting the stripes done? I was planning for early next spring.
  4. I have the same problem. I'm planning on replacing the hood with an oem style carbon fiber hood from anderson composites, painting it, and putting the hood scoop on that hood.
  5. SPP Sales

    Ended up buying from Champion Mustang and was able to get a discount.
  6. SPP Sales

    I sent them an offer for the front and rear kit, and they don't negotiate. They said it is special order, same price as the SPP website. I know they had a 15% off sale in December 2015, but I haven't seen any sales since then.
  7. SPP Sales

    What happened to all the holiday sales SPP used to have?
  8. I had my supercharger installed there and additional upgrades done a couple years later. I have spoke with Dennis recently and Tasca is no longer painting stripes and they didn't offer any recommendations for any paint shops. They were my first place to check.
  9. Looking for a shop recommendation to get over the top stripes painted. I'm located in Connecticut but would be willing to travel anywhere in New England to find a good shop.
  10. SPP Sales

    Are there going to be any sales coming any time soon? I am looking to buy the wilwood front and rear brake kits but it would be nice to buy on sale for such a large purchase.
  11. Hood Replacement

    My family spent about 90k at the dealer I bought the car from in three months. We bought the Shelby in December 07, my sister bought a 07 Mustang in January 08 (has corrosion on the lip of the hood just like your car did, and my wife bought a 08 Ford Focus in March of 08. I would be happy if they would meet half way but they aren't willing to help (won't be buying a car from that auto group again). I am waiting on a quote to have a carbon fiber hood painted, if that ends up being the same cost as getting my hood repaired I may just go down that route. I am hoping to hear back next week.
  12. Hood Replacement

    I do have aluminum screws I received from SVT. I know there is a TSB for aluminum galvanic corrosion from Ford not properly prepping the hoods before paint, as well as galvanic corrosion from the hood pin screws. I would prefer to respray the stock hood, but I haven't seen anyone successfully repair this problem by repainting. I don't want to pay to have it repainted unless I have some confidence that the corrosion will not return after the repair. I have contacted both Ford and Shelby who both refuse to pay any of the costs of the repair when this is clearly a manufacturing issue on Ford or the hood supplier. I am also surprised that Ford and Shelby would allow a product to be sold with a design flaw like this and not do the right thing and fix the car. Has anyone repaired their hood and not had the corrosion return?
  13. I am having my stripes replaced on my car and I need to repair galvanic corrosion around the hood pins or replace the hood. I have got a quote for 1200 dollars to repair and respray the hood or the other option is to buy a stock style carbon fiber hood from Anderson Composites. I would put my original hood scoop and hood pins on the carbon after it gets painted. I have read that corrosion tends to come back even after repair so I am leaning towards the carbon fiber hood. I have no experience with carbon fiber and wanted to know if anyone has done this with there car to solve the corrosion problem or knows how much painting a carbon fiber hood should cost. I am thinking I would just paint the top side.
