  3. We are getting together for a pony run in the Great Lakes region, anyone wishing to join us is welcome to join. Here is the link and info. http://www.teamshelby.com/forums/index.php/topic/82548-great-lakes-region-pony-run-to-the-50th-in-charlotte/
  4. Hello fellow Team Shelby members. We are putting together a pony run for the 50th event in Charlotte and would like to extend an invitation to all members of Team Shelby as well as anyone else that wold like to travel to Charlotte together. This is not a Team Shelby only event, if you know someone who is planning on going they are more than welcome to join us. I know there are going to be people that are trailering as well as driving their beloved Mustang. We are planning on everyone meeting in Indianapolis, In on April 14th and staying the night here and leaving bright and early on the 15th. The hotel for Indy stay has not been finalized as of this date, but we are working on it. I am working to find a hotel that is going to discount the rate as well as have enough room in the parking lot for trailers as well as allowing some folks to park in their lot that may be traveling by RV. At this time the itenerary is not final, but we still have a few months to get things squared away. This is what we have so far: April 14th : Everyone from out of Indy meeting and have a brief meet and greet at Indy hotel. April 15th: Everyone up bright and early for departure to Charlotte, leave at approx 6:00 AM and travel to Florence, Ky 1st stop will be in Florence, Ky to pick up members from the Ohio area and northern Kentucky area, along with refueling. 2nd stop will be in Lexington, Ky for any southern Kentucky members wanting to travel with us, and fuel stop. 3rd stop will be in Knoxville, Tn for any Mississippi Valley members, and of course fuel again. 4th stop will be in Asheville, NC and will be our final stop before entering the Charloote area. All stops are going to be at areas large enough (hopefully) to accomodate everyones vehicles (diesel, gas...) and use restrooms, snacks. and will last approx 30 minutes per stop. We are taking in consideration vehicles that may need frequent stops do to pulling trailers and cars that may be running 4:10 gears and such. Oh and children and Wives that need R/R breaks. Map quest states that the trip from Indy to Charlotte will take 9 hours and with the stops should put us at 12hrs tops to hotels. I ask that anyone wanting more info please contact me through private msg or post and I will try to answer questions promptly. I also ask everyone that would like to join us on this wonderful trip to sign up on our eventbrite website, it does not cost anything to join or for tickets, it is just a way for us to track the amount of people joining us and lets us know where everyone will be coming from. Here is the link to eventbrite page to register. Thanks and hope you can join us. https://50thmustanga...eventbrite.com/

  8. Check ebay, occasionally you can find them on there from 100 to 200 bucks out of a wrecked mustang. Any console out of any mustang in the same interior color will work (manual tranny of course) they are not specific to GT500.
  9. Word to the wise, I purchased the Shelby tanks when modding my GT500 and they are beautiful. But after having them for a couple of years they began to show signs of wear. Meaning scratches and such. Being that they are aluminum and brushed it is near impossible to "buff" out the scratches. So my suggestion would be to clearcoat them before installation, in doing this it would be just like your paint on your car surface, in that if a light scratch appears it is possible to buff it out without damaging the brushed finish of the aluminum. I have found this out the hard way after many shows and mods I have scratches that will not come out without being noticable. Now I am going to have to remove tanks and polish them to a high shine (which in turn will possibly remove the Shelby lettering) then clearcoat them for future shows. PLease post back and let me know what you decide and if things work for you. Thanks.

    The flake you guys are referring to is called Xirralac (think thats the right spelling). I also have the Kona Blue GT500 and have had the underside of my hood painted. Make sure that the person painting it gets the right stuff. Most paint shops can match the L6 code but its the metal flake thats going to make it look different. If they dont use the Xirralac you will notice the difference. I checked on it a couple of months ago and according to info on the web there is a factory that was just built or being built in Germany that can make the Xirralac. Sorry for the spelling but you get the idea.
  11. Helllo, I cant recommend any shop as I am in Indpls, In, but I have installed one on my wifes 07 gt vert and it only took about 45 minutes. Very simple to do if you have any machanical ability at all ( as in changing oil in car or truck). However hers does not have the light attachment. Hope it works out for you, or let me know if I can help.
  12. I do not know of any "Shelby" events going on during that time, there may be a car show or two during the month of may that would be worth attending. If you are planning on driving your Shelby to Indy, I would definitly find someone close to the track with a garage or secured parking area. I would NOT park mine in the infield (paddock or not) and leave the car unattended. Most of the parking in the infield is not secured and open for anyone to walk around, and with the alcohol cunsumption going on there it is always a good possibility of someone dragging a cooler down the side or purses hitting the car and such. If you do come into town it is a great event, not only for racing but many other things that happen during that time. Let me know when you will be here and maybe we can get together for a drink, always look forward to meeting a Shelby enthusiast.

    I have never gotten anything in the mail for the show. I am still unshure if I will make it this year or not due to scheduling conflicts, but hopefully I will see you there.
  14. I had my clutch put in by the dealer (mcloed rxt) and it was doing the same thing. Dealer tried bleeding it and it still faded out. When I returned home I lifted the front left corner of the car and removed my brake reservoir cap and let it sit over night and that done the trick. All the air in the system went to the high point ( brake reservoir) and bled itself out overnight and no more problem. Try that and report back and let us know if it worked.
