Jer, will a KR version be offered later on for those cars built with the earlier style master cylinder like the SGTs?

 

 

I believe so. I hate to leave ANYONE behind... :salute:

Looks nice. How about a Shelby GT-H or even just a plain "Shelby" one

 

 

There will be a plain "Shelby" one.

 

Thanks,

Mounted on the firewall, driver's side. This cover goes over the existing white plastic tank.

I Have an early bulid 08 Shelby GT 11-07-2007 and I have the wider brake reservoir with the same pinched off nipple. Mine is an automatic and this fitting is used for the 5 spd cars to feed the clutch slave cylinder or (CRC) assembly. If you look closely at the picture of the cover on the Shelby website you can see a slot at the back left side allowing for the line to clear. Pretty sure you will be ok. My early bulid GT-500 has the same reservoir but with the hose attached of course for the CRC.

Let us know Jer if I got right.

 

Thanks

Ted

I'll double check as soon as the sun comes up here... can't see a damn thing yet. LOL

OK, finally bright enough to see here!

 

Ted is absolutely correct. There are notches in the cover that fit over the hose lines.

Richard, you are good to go!

 

Thanks, Ted!

Jer,

Will the cover still allow you to use the Shelby billet fluid caps? Also, I'm disappointed no "S" Snake on the Shelby GT cover.

Dave

 

 

Yes, the billet cap will still fit.

As for the "S-snake", if you really want one under your hood, I'd suggest the matching fusebox cover!

I thought I read somewhere these were no longer being made. Obviously I was mistaken. Okay, you run another 15% off sale and I'll get that and a few other parts I've had my eye on.

Can these be picked up in person or do they have to be shipped?

 

How many pre-orders would you need to do a set for the 40th owners?

 

 

I'm always willing to accomodate people picking them up in person.

As for the "40th", I'll have to look into it.

Jer,

Will they be offering these in the Anodized Black finish? I'd really like to match my Shelby Extreme Duty Coolant Reservoir Tanks.

Mike

 

 

No plans for that currently. It may be something we consider in the future, however.
