MarkGT08 Posted September 30, 2009 Report Share Posted September 30, 2009 Sorry Ladies and Gents. I know I've been gone awhile, but life after the big move to Texas has been hectic. We are finally settling in; new house, another new car and a baby with two new teeth. Anyway, McKinney, Texas is our home now. My Grabber Orange is safely in the garage after the marathon 21 hour drive from Chino Hills, CA to Texas. The side scoop is fixed and repainted. I drove the Shelby for only the third time since June 27, and it felt good to feel some acceleration again. To keep the miles off the Shelby, though, I bought something to commute back and forth to work in. Soooooooo anyyywaaaaay, I bought a Honda Insight Hybrid. It actually has a 1.3 Litre engine (smaller than my Harley), and gets over 50 Miles per gallon (also more than my Harley). Its actually sort of fun to drive, in a "high tech pinball machine" sort of way. It has hardly any acceleration, but now the goal is to max out the MPG meter. Anyway, back to the Shelby..... And here is the puzzle. So, yesterday, after I got back from my third drive in the Shelby and I was dusting off the car, and I noticed THIS missing stripe from under the right side scoop. The left side is fine The stripe used to be there. I have older pictures of it there. It's weird. I never have parked the Shelby anywhere but in my own garage, and once in the parking garage at work, with security gaurds, etc. And there is absolutely no residue where the stripe used to be, no glue, no sticky, no dirt. It's shiny and looks like there never was a stripe there. Did I drive so fast that it flew off? So any suggestions on how to get it replaced? Do I have to go to a Ford Dealer and through the whole paperwork issue, or will Shelby just sell me a new stripe? I can install it myself. What's my best move? Aftermarket?
