SHR Louver Pre-order Manufacturing Update

To our customers and friends who have been patiently waiting on our louver production, we have some good news for everyone.

Even with the pre-order extended for three months, we have not met the minimum number of pre-orders required to start production. However, we are very aware of a lot of people "waiting on the sidelines" that are interested but have a fear of pre-ordering a product that we feel would get us to our target quantity. Therefore, given the number of orders we do have, we have decided to push forward with production of the Flush Mount louvers! Currently, given the time it takes to not only order the special mix of UV stabilized material we use, but also the time to schedule on the 300 ton press that we manufacture on, we are targeting a late-August delivery date. While that is an estimate, it should not be too far off the mark. In the meantime, anyone who still wants to get it in on the order (even though a bit on the late side!) we're going to leave the order system open as we will be producing enough to cover everyone.

Be aware however that this likely will be the LAST run of our patented flush-mount louvers ever made. If you have, or know of someone with a Cobra Jet Mustang, or want a spare set for your car that already has a set, or always wanted a set but never ordered in the past, now would be a good time to get involved as given the number of sets we will make, inventory may not last very long after all orders are fulfilled.

On a sadder note, we apologize for the lack of communication recently along with not launching our new website on schedule. We have had to deal with two deaths in our immediate family over the past two months, and it has been a difficult time for our family. Our most recent loss was our "Uncle Joe" Botti, who was mentor and crew chief on the SilverHorse Racing SCCA team from 1995-2005. He will be missed by all who knew him. Godspeed Joe, our race was over far too quick.

Protecting your rights to Repair your vehicle!

In our last installment of explaining your rights so you know how the law protects you and your hobby, we discussed the First Sale Doctrine, and how it protects you when you want to maintain your own property (be it car, lawn mower, cell phone, etc.)

This week, we’re going to talk about the Magnusson-Moss warranty act, and how it protects you from unscrupulous manufacturers and dealers that do not want to repair their products after the sale, just because you may or may not have done something to personalize your vehicle.

First of all, the Magnusson-Moss warranty act protects you on all products that have a warranty. Basically, if something you buy has a warranty, it has to be in writing, and it has to explain what is and what is not covered, and for how long. Additionally, it should explain how to receive warranty service on the item if it is required.

Now, one loophole that is often exploited by car manufacturers has to do with if a vehicle has been modified in any way, they try to void the entire warranty. So say you have a 3/36 bumper-to-bumper warranty and you install an aftermarket stereo – then unrelated the remote unlock button quits working. By law, the only way to deny you warranty coverage on the remote button would be to prove that the failure was caused by the aftermarket stereo or an improper installation that maybe cut a wire. But if that is not the case, the dealer / manufacturer must honor the warranty and repair the problem.

As a similar example, if you were to install an aftermarket muffler, and then the transmission fails, the manufacturer must repair the transmission unless they can prove the muffler was the cause of the failure.

So when you’re worried about warranty coverage on your new vehicle when contemplating that next upgrade, just remember, the only things that warranty can be denied on going forward would be things that are damaged by (or could realistically be damaged by) the upgraded piece in question. A supercharger might damage something downstream in the drivetrain, but it can’t be responsible for hood corrosion or failure of a door latch mechanism. Similarly, a hands-free phone install might damage the stereo, climate system, or instrument cluster, but it can’t be held responsible for throwing a rod through the engine block.
