What's this? A new Alcoa perhaps?? We'll know Monday...

Recommended Posts

Pretty sure THEY are all sold out by now, but I'll check for you today.

Also, WE will have some in stock, after the pre-order customers receive theirs. Check back often.

Jer I think someone already asked but I didn't see a response. Do you know what color code the black ones were before when Shelby sold them. I'm looking to powder coat my set and want them to match the same black on the Super Snakes. Thanks

I asked about that, and it turns out we weren't very "fancy": We just asked the powdercoater for "satin black".

Besides, I was told that every powdercoater uses their favorite brand of powder, much like a painter, so it's not universal anyway.

Is satin black different from matte black?

 

 

It is 8.7% "more black"...

I can't tell if this is a serious answer or not. The 8.7% is throwing me off here lol

Jer any luck finding the which dealers SPP allocated some Alcoas?

 

 

Still waiting to hear back from those that may have some available... sorry for the delay.

BTW, remember: We will have some too, after the pre-orders are fullfilled. I'll announce with lead time.

Jer,

 

Any status on the extra sets of Alcoas? How best to monitor when they become available?

 

Thanks again!

We will send an email and post it on this site when we have the remaining quantity available to sell.

We will give notice as to when the orders will be accepted, and the phone center will open early that day, and I predict they will go fast.

 

So, stay tuned!

Is it this one:

 

http://www.fordracingparts.com/parts/part_details.asp?PartKeyField=22811

 

The part # you posted doesn't match so I'm wondering if Tousley is selling a aftermarket counterpart to this Ford Racing kit or if that's just a internal part number they supplied.

 

As for the price difference, Tousley sells parts for cost + 10% (or + $200, whichever is LESS) so that could still be the same part but w/o mark-up (meaning there's a real good mark-up on it!).

 

My main question would be, why would they be selling a AM part vs. a FRPP or FoMoCo part, other than the price difference (if there is one)?

 

I was going to see what Tousley sold the FRPP kit for and was heading towards using it over a AM kit but they MIGHT be one and the same animal (rebadged with FRPP logo and price!).

Phill,

The part number is an in house number. It is the same as the FRPP kit, M-1180-A, but it is made up from individual Ford parts. The M-1180-A kit was on sale for $120, but the sale is over and the new price is $194. Steve put this kit together so they could stay ahead of Tire Rack.

 

You will need to call them directly, 800-328-9552, to order the kit. i ordered mine today and also ordered a cargo net for the trunk, My parts have already been shipped by UPS.

I have seen a 2 posts on other forums about guys backing out or canceling their order. Is there a waiting list in the event some do cancel?

We also did not totally "sell out". There will be more available, and we'll let EVERYONE know with plenty of notice.

Just don't blink! LOL
