I have been stalking this site for a bit now and I love the info here, and some of the mods you are doing to you cars is just awesome. I hope I can fit in here. My name is Mike and I just wanted to say hi and say that I am looking forward to getting to know some of you guys!

Welcome aboard Mike. It's too bad you couldn't have found a far superior blue SGT, but that black one isn't too shabby either. wink.gif

Any pics under the hood? What kind of other mods have you been compelled to do?

 

 

 

I will get to posting more later tonight! Anyone do a dash kit on their Shelbys, I bought a brushed aluminum dash kit from Carid. Anyone done this!

I'm sure you'll get some input about your dash question.

Welcome to TS, Mike!

 

Don't worry about Ken. Even though his car is only blue, it's still kinda nice.... :lurk:

 

More pics are always welcome.

We Black SGT owners stick together. Shelby built the most of the best color anyway. :hysterical: Nice to have you with us.

Yeah, I don't know the price difference, but you might be happier long run with oem stuff over the stick on stuff...

 

 

I called my local ford dealer and they couldn't give me a good answer. Can anyone get me a price on the Aluminum for the upper dash all the way across!

Welcome, Mike

 

I too want to upgrade my dash and my first choice is the IUP Kit from Ford.

However, this is my second choice. They make both carbon fiber and satin alum kits:

and they appear to make quality stuff.

I purchased a dark charcoal kit on Ebay for 173.00 and changed out my silver one, It took about 1 hour and was easy, when I put it all back together I only had 3 screws left over, I can live with that, btw I sold the bright aluminium dash to a TS member, Rick

Thanks everyone for the welcome! I made a good find online last night. EBAY, I found a brand new Bullit dash for 300 and cancelled my dash kit order. Anyone know how easy it is to change these panels out. The two that look the most difficult are the ones buy the instrument cluster and the the airbag one!

Welcome aboard from a recovering Black SGT owner! You'll find lots of posts on replacing the airbag cover; in fact I think Grabber just reposted his link on that very issue. You might consider sending it in for Carroll's signature before you replace it though. Just a thought.

What about the rest of the panels, do they just pull out and pop in. Thanks for the welcome!
