  1. battery disconnect is better than just leaving it, me and the OP are at istorage type places, no power for a trickle charger. But agreed, trickle is very nice in saving the battery
  2. Yeah its not that big of deal. I rent a similar unit, 10x25. I leave it for sometimes 6+ months at a time without ever seeing it. The storage unit is in a different state and I travel constantly for work so thats just how it worked out. Definitely disconnect the battery, the drain to run the modules (keyless entry etc) will for sure drain the battery and strain the alternator if you keep jumping. I never add Stabil but do realize the gas will be stale every time and make sure to fill up with fresh gas every time I do pull it out. I wash it and put the car cover on it when it's totally dried. Lock it and disconnect the battery. I do have some minor flat spotting on my sticky tires but that goes away fast when you start driving. Mothballs I never bothered with either since these are aluminum buildings usually and mice can't really get in. No wood or drywall to easily chew through and the car is sealed up. You could leave it for a year without checking on it, it'd be fine.
  3. Nah he said Boot cover, as in the ugly black cover over the convertible top when it's down. OP, I dont know of an aftermarket solution unfortunately
  4. Dang not too bad. Hood looks intact. Wish it was being parted I'd scoop that hood in a heartbeat.
  5. Any aluminum wheel can be repaired for rash. Is it polished? Will probably cost $200-$300 but will look brand new. Google some wheel restoration places
  6. Unsure what exactly you're on about, there is a HUGE difference between the Chinese HID bulb/ballasts kits people put in Honda's and blind people, and actual HID's from the OEM. Your top post mentioned wanting to install OEM HID assemblies in your Halogen equipped assembly, so I will assume you want to do a proper OEM retrofit. It's quite easy parts-wise, you will need L and R OEM Headlight assemblies which include bulbs and ballasts) not super cheap, but excellent pieces, and then you will need the Ford front light wiring harness, this includes the wires and plugs for the headlight, horn, turn signal, parking lamps, and since you have a GT500, intercooler sensor. This harness is different than the Halogen harness in the sense that it includes a relay box that mounts on the Passenger shock tower (google engine bay pics of Halogen and HID GT500s to see this). Those are mostly the only parts. The last change you'll need to make is to jump two wires in that new harness with a Zener diode to limit current since HID's draw less amperage and have a polarity unlike a halogen bulb. I did the swap in my 2009 back in 12 or 13 and it's wonderful. PM with additional questions or for the instructions of jumping the harness I may still have the PDF
  7. Looks close to that, yes but that is a 2 1/16" the pods use the larger 2 5/8" size gauges. Would fall right through the hole Also that's Oil Pressure, which I have, need that Oil Temp
  8. Long shot but looking to see if anyone with the Shelby Triple Gauge on their GT has gone supercharged, either via the GT/SC KB pack or their own route, and now wants a Boost gauge in their pod that's an official signed CS Gauge. I have the supercharged version, with the Boost gauge, but have now gone back N/A and would like the Oil Temp gauge back. SAI no longer carries the gauges and although I can go buy a similar Auto Meter, it would not have the CS signature on the faceplate that matches the other 2. My gauge is brand new, never used. Long shot but let me know. Images of both attached:
  9. Winder is pretty far out of Atlanta but I might be going to Flowery Branch next week (Falcons HQ). PM me.
  10. Update: Still looking for this. Guy that makes them aftermarket couldn't do it apparently (after a month of waiting) and Shelby responded to my email that they're out of production. Any chance one still exists in the wild? Doesn't need to be new I can reglue it.
  11. Perfect, thanks Jeff. Oh are they back on the Shelby Store? I got mine from a friend who sold his SGT and thought SD stopped making them.
