SGT Horn Buttons

I personally would love to see shelby offer different horn button covers for our car. Similar to the trunk lock covers. They seem cheap and easy to produce. One I would like to see and buy would be a Supercharged model.

Others could be:

CS

GT

GT/SC

Paxton Powered

Whipple powered

 

any other ideas?

 

Would you buy one if they had one you liked?

 

The only reason I can think of that they do not is because of the air bag. Maybe it is a legal issue?

this is not going to happen, it's been talked about before and there is a safety and legal issue if and when the air bag deploys

I don't know for sure, but it may have something to do with Shelby being classified as a manufacturer with the EPA and US DOT.

 

I do understand if shelby did not change the horn button. But they sell everything else aftermarket.

So why could they sell a cover for the horn button is my question.

Was12.00 for 4 of those decals made up, I gave 2 away and used the other 2, The saleen cap cover was like 15.00, There is not enough money in those items for SPP to even handle them, IMO, Myself and a few other made our own and they came out great. Rick

One word, litigation.

 

Just because a part is sold over the counter doesn't mean that someone wouldn't sue us if the emblem came loose during an airbag deployment and took out someones eye.

Made mine too!

 

Saleen cap with nice metallic decals that look and blend nicely complementing the rest of the SGT "S" snake additions. No fuss, no muss, no drilling or cutting.

 

Decal can be found here:

This is what I have now...

The new Tiffany snake airbag cover which is on the 2010 and up Gt-500 is available separtely from Ford without the airbag as the Cobrajet airbag delete for racing.

 

I bought one before Christmas at Blue Oval Industries and installed it on my CS6.

 

I didn't venture to swap out the airbag as I thought this a bit too dangerous as you would have to drill out the rivets etc.

 

I simply cut the airbag cover to pieces to make the inside accessible, cut away the plastic exposing the clips which keep the snake in place and once the metal tabs were straightened out I gently extracted the snake from the airbag cover.

 

I disconnected the battery and the #14 fuse, then I gently pried the existing Mustang emblem off.

 

I cut the clips down on the new snake emblem so there was just enough left to engage and locate the piece on the airbag cover.

 

I mixed clear two part epoxy and ran a fine bead in a circle where the clips engage.

 

I aligned the snake to the airbag cover , pressed it into place and secured it with an X of duct tape.

 

Next morning I removed the tape and it looks every bit as good as the one on my GT-500.

Too cool. I'd love to see some pics. One question... I had to file down the rubber ridges behind the stock cover to accommodate the new flush mount cover. Will the absences of the ridges be a problem if I install the cobra cover you bought. Are those ridges needed to support the cobra cover like the factory cover?

 

Thanks

I'm not sure how this would effect the installation but the button is slightly domed and doesn't really look like it contacts the center.
