Its not even the matter of capacity. Its the fact that he has them sitting around in his shop already done and collecting dust. lol.
I get it. I heard his wife passed and he just closed shop. I am sure there is more to it, but yea i was all about forking over some money for a set.
Ill keep trying to bug manufacturers to make some sets for the community though. Not like I have much pull, but I know people that know people so i can always try to work the angles I can.
His wife is fine, had a good run in with cancer, but yup, he just needs to send me pics of what he has available on the centers (mesh, louver or perforated stainless), ive been chewing his ass , so its just a matter of he sending me the info, procuring the fasteners wich he does not have on hand, have the parts coated, he did mention he had a couple of painted sets, and get you guys setup, but again he needs to find some time to do that...
Funny to see my old thread brought back to life haha. I am still happy with the Shelby hood vents I got but I really did want the ones Steve was offering. I went back and forth with him in PMs but he eventually stopped responding so I assume he must be really busy like you guys said. Still, if any of these ever do become available I'd be all over them.
They had several different styles and colors. I think there are pics in this thread, pretty sure I posted mine when I installed them. If not pm me your email and I'll shoot you pics. Mine are about to be for sale soon. I totaled my Shelby last month but they were unharmed.
Thanks for the pic. They look like the Shelby 40th Anniversary vents.
I'm not looking for a pair of these.... I don't have my original hood on the car. I wanted to see them only because I don't remember these from back in the day. Also, a few weeks ago, I was looking through some of my junk I've collected over the years and came across a NEW pair of the Shelby vents that I never used. I'm beginning to wonder if I should take them to my local fabricator to see if this is something they can duplicate, just not in plastic......
Willie, I have the ones that you have in the pic on my car, just black mesh. I think they were Raceskinz, or something like that. They were on the car when I bought it, but I googled hood vent pics and that is what I came up with.
