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! He wanted to link all of the enthusiasts into one "dream garage"... thus, Team Shelby was born!   Team Shelby has many free, open access forums, news sections and member only areas dedicated to the community.   In addition, Team Shelby has a full series of events for 2019, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more!

My experience was very similar but different. When I brought my car to Shelby American for the GT/SC upgrade. When I was picking it up I mentioned to Bud that I was getting the dreaded lanyard rust and they hadn't noticed it. [Which was odd because I was in Colorado low humidity and the car never saw rain]. Anyway, Bud made a phone call to Scott Drake and I went over to their location and asked for the right person and was handed a set for no charge. Bud installed them while I waited.

So the ones they replaced were they the same material as the rusted ones?

No, there was a redesign - new material I think on the braided metal to the screw terminations - but it was so long ago I don't remember.

The lanyards in my new billet kit look the same, with the exception of rotating balls at the pin end, to keep them from getting twisted.....clever design. :thumbsup:

Nice to hear. It's amazing how something so small can be so irritating. This new set is holding up very well with no signs of any rust...woohoo!

Anyone replace their '07 hood pin kit with Shelby Parts kit (http://www.shelbystore.com/product-p/S1MS-16892-SSK.htm)?  Does their kit incorporate the aluminum screws or are they still stainless screws?  I'm trying to avoid a repeat of the corrosion after I get the hood fixed or replaced. 

Speaking of fixed, I read here that several had their hoods fixed through the warranty.  That's no longer an option, but how were the repairs...how did they turn out?  Were you satisfied, did they last?  One Ford body shop says hey can repair the hood, the other says to replace it? 

What would you recommend after your experience ... repair or replace hood?

I would bu the AI screws if there is any doubt. You can get the right size on-line, a bunch of us did years ago, and they cost pennies.  Cheap insurance.   I would replace the hood if you are going to REALLY keep the car.  All it takes is a few left over particles to hav e it start all over again.  Remember Ford's extended warranty for hood corrosion WAS NOT due to or for the Shelby screws.  While these screws do cause corrosion the extended warranty was for factory hood contamination by airborne particles prior to prime and paint.
