  1. I had it made at a local graphics shop
  2. My stock tires were 285/35R19s...so they are about 1" taller......I did not correct the speedo. I can check the backspacing next time they are off
  3. My boss was going to scrap some brass, so I snagged a piece and made a shift knob for the Shelby. I made the ball slightly bigger because ( I can't believe i'm typing this) I prefer the feel of a bigger knob. It also sits a bit lower than stock comparison pics here it is on the shifter....I just need to sand off the nub on the top and polish it up polished Then I had a graphic made Then I applied it to the knob. It then got 6 coats of clear Here it is beside the factory shift ball..(I just couldnt type knob anymore...lol) In the car
  4. I've got about 100 miles of street driving....no rubbing so far
  5. I finally got the car on the road, so I snapped some better pics tonight. Its still a bit early and the roads are sandy, so the car isn't the cleanest.
  6. Snapped a few pics today....its hard to take pics that look as good as it does in person I'll snap some more when the car is cleaned up. I'll also get some when its up on the hoist next
  7. I had been running a 325/30R20 on my Forgestar F14s on the rear of my Shelby without any mods or rubbing for 4 years. It was time to buy new tires by the end of the fall last year, so I starting looking at tires online. I knew there were very few companies that offer anything over a 305 and I didnt want to get a narrower tire so I started looking at wider. Michelin Pilot Super Sports had been getting great reviews from guys with big power, .... they don't make a 325/30R20, but they make a 335/30R20....and wider is always better...lol. There is a 325/30R20 Michelin Pilot cup road race tire, But I didnt want a road race tire To run these tires, I would either have to get new rims or get mine widened. With our dollar so low and Me having expensive tastes in rims.....I decided widening my rims would be the best way to go. After some careful measuring, I decided to get my 20x11s widened to 11.75, which would be in spec to run the 335s ( 11.5-12.5). I sent my rims to Weldcraft in Michigan to get widened and 6 weeks later I got them back. The 335s are really wide......alot wider than the 325....but I read Michelins run wider than other tires here's a pic beside the 325...The 335 is .75 wider Mounted Mounted width....sorry for bad pic...I was trying to hold the tape and snap a pic at the same time Beside the front 255/35s Mounted on the car.....fits like a glove. I really have to clean them To fit these, I removed the bump stop brackets and the shock dust boots. I have enough clearance that I can fit my fingers between the inner fender and the tire all the way around...I have small fingers though. The drivers side is also a bit more snug on my fingers, I will have to adjust my panhard bar a little bit. It is still not nice enough to get the car out of storage yet so I cant road test them right now...but we finally got some nice weather this week and the snow is melting fast....I will try to get some pics from behind the car soon.
  8. yes, I know the lettering is all the same on all cars, just saying it matches the gauges....and yes,tach is the same
  9. yes I bought the car used...the dealer picked it up at a ford aution. They said it was an executives car and spent most of its life in michigan, although it was a canadian car. When I went to register it, I was the first owner, dispite it being used. here is my build sheet as you can see, the build date for my 2010 was actually in 2008. Another oddity is the car only came with side stripes. I did not have any issues with the car. also match the shelby lettering on the trunk lid
  10. I've got a 2010 pre production car and i'm trying to find out if the gauge font is unique....does anybody else have a font like this ??
  11. There is only one Hp......Canadian Hp...lol
  12. I did the install myself...its really easy. Don't laugh, but I bought it off of kijiji well, I think the standard for manual transmission cars is about 15%.....that would equate to 720ish It was a powerdyne dyno and should be corrected
