I have a 2008 Shelby GT & am considering getting a different hood. With it's dimensions in mind, is there an easy way to find other hood styles with the same dimensions that would easily fit? In my optimistic mind I'm hoping there's a website feature out there where you plug in the make/model/year of your car & it spits out options for you, but that's got to be fantasy (not to mention lazy). I know nothing about the process, whether these have to be custom made or not, whether a different hood usually or always requires new front fascia, etc. Any info, advice, experience appreciated. I realize that anything can be custom made, but at least initially I want to see what I can get done sooner. And does anyone happen to know if replacing the hood cancels their extended warranty? I haven't checked mine yet. Thanks.
Howdy. I need to replace the original Motorcraft BXT-96R battery in my '08 SGT and would like to know what you guys/girls did. I'd say the original lasted about 4 yrs sitting a lot (12k miles on it) without being trickle-charged, but prefer to go with a different brand. There seems to be good & bad feedback on the Optimas, but looks like mostly good. In that case, yellow top is better for me, but what concerns me there is the extra height. The original Motorcraft is 6 3/4" to the very top, the yellow top D35 is said to be 7 5/8-7 11/16" high, so getting pretty close to the hood there. Anybody put this battery in their engine compartment? I'd rather not reroute to trunk. It would be nice to hear what you did/bought, & where you bought. And it would be nice to know if you have any trick to measure the allowable height in the tray, from tray bottom to the inside of the hood when it's closed. I closed the hood onto an open tape measure that had 9" sticking up & was pushed down by the hood when closed, but I don't feel I can trust that much. Sure I can come up with something with more time. Point is I'm trying to figure out how high I can go with the replacement battery. Thanks.
Hi all, Well, as some on here already know, I was backed into in a parking lot a few weeks ago. The lady backed up and hit my front passenger side. She damaged the hood, front bumper, and a little warping on the grille, and broke the HID headlight on that side. There seems to be no sturctural damage to the frame or the radiator support, but it has not been taken apart yet. So now my questions are... 1. Do I just get the parts repaired, and keep it all "original"?(I do have quite a few mods, but still have all the original parts as well) 2. Do I have the damaged parts replaced? 3. Do I take the money from the lady and trade it in on a new 2012 with the SVTPP, Recaro seats, and Nav, that is being offered at a good price, and put them both towards the new car? 4. Do I go ahead and list the car for sale as is and then use that money and the money from the lady on a new 2012 (as stated above)? The repairs are not disabling, but the bumper has large gashes and a crack, the hood has a pretty good dent and a slight bend/ warp about midway up on the passengers side, the HID turns on (but the case and the mounting bracket are broken), and several plasic clips for the radiator cover are off or broken. I do love my 2008. I have a lot in her. (clutch, 3.73, FRPP Performance pack, FRPP Handling pack, Smaller Pulley and tune, Shelby Leather Interior, Custom painted center console and trunk mounted tool box), and is almost paid for (19 months left) The 2012 Has Nav, Recarro seats, the SVTPP, aluminium engine, a waranty (for however long that lasts ), and would actually be a lower monthly payment (but would be a new loan and more years of payments in relation to the 2008) So any advice/ opinions would be appriciated. Thanks
