The Lounge / Groundhog removal
« on: May 23, 2019, 12:45:26 PM »
Anyone else ever use their Shelby to remove a live-trapped critter.  My wife insists we relocate them from our garden to a park.  I figured the Shelby was a good vehicle for transport.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Hood Peak Molding and Hood Grates
« on: February 09, 2019, 01:26:10 PM »
I've decided this is finally the year to put my original, restored hood on my car.   

Is it feasible to weld some fold-over tabs on to an older, reproduction peak molding?  The one I have is currently screwed to the underside of my repro hood and the screws are not in the original locations.  I also have a dented original peak molding that is missing the tabs (broken off).  I would rather not buy the newer, incorrect repro peak molding with screws for $300.   

Also, what type of adhesive should I use to glue the rear grates on the 2 rear hood scoops?  Was this adhesive painted black along with the underside of the hood?  If not, what color was the original adhesive? 


1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Right Side Mirror
« on: December 26, 2018, 05:23:54 PM »
My right mirror on my convertible keeps moving out of adjustment every time I drive.  I assume the mechanism inside has gotten weak and the vibration from driving cause the glass to move.  Essentially, it is like driving without a right side mirror. 

Does anyone know if this can be fixed or do I need a new mirror?  Any advice is appreciated.   


1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Twisted Seat Back
« on: August 18, 2018, 06:04:22 PM »
Does anyone know how to fix my twisted seat back on driver's front seat?  Not sure why, but it is twisting toward the right rear. 


I lost all steering yesterday as I backed my Shelby out of the garage into my driveway.  The p/s slave cylinder rod end nut backed all the way off and the rod came out of the frame bracket.  Fortunately, it happened at 1mph in my driveway.  I was driving my Shelby at 70mph 2 days before - I feel lucky to be alive. 

After some research, I found there is supposed to be a lock nut on the rod end threads that prevents the nut from backing off.  My Shelby had a hardware store hex nut installed with no locking nut as was factory installed.  I never noticed or knew about the lock nut. 

I thought I would post this so others can check their cars to make sure you have a lock nut installed.  The amk kit is F-1811.
