Default Update: Certain 2005-09 Saleen Body Parts & Brake Kits Available

Greetings,

I just wanted to post a new thread about a topic that concerns many of you, primarily in hopes that it will ease some of the anxiety going on.

There are some parts, especially front and rear body parts for 2005-09 S-series Saleens, that are on temporary back order.

I realize this is of importance not only to those of you who have their cars in the body shop due to accidents, but those of you who want to feel secure that you have replacement parts available when you'll need them.

I just got off the phone with Steve, and I can assure you that this is a high priority for him, as he has stated before. The current situation is complicated by a series of circumstances that occurred over the years, starting in January 2009, so it will take some time to rectify them.

Above all, be patient.

We've had some estimated due dates posted here in other threads, and due to the nature of getting these produced and complications that have come up, that date keeps getting pushed back.

Please refrain from speculating or expressing your frustration here, and I don't want you to be confused with misleading statements on reseller websites stating parts may be discontinued and getting confused on what that means.

Again, please be patient, understanding, and we'll be sure to keep you posted with real information directly from Steve or his key people.

Thank you,

Jim D.

Hey Jim, I ordered two third brake lights a month or two ago. Any idea how long it will be before they will be available?

I'm following this as well -- they are working with their supplier to resolve some quality assurance issues.

banshee -- give 281 Motorsports a call at 1-877-281-MUSTANG


The latest update on the body kits and 3rd brake lights is that they're still working on resourcing them and re-tooling, so they continue to be on back order.

Thank you for your continued patience.

281 Motorsports can help those awaiting parts as some are finally becoming available!

http://saleenforums.soec.org/showthread.php?t=14136

It's probably best to deal with 281 as Saleen is pretty busy with the LA Auto Show going on the next 2 weeks -- and Jason's team has great customer service.

I got an update from Molly and Steve last night and there are a lot of things coming available and too much to list here in any detail just yet because they have backorders to fulfill and need to get them online.

But for you OneQwkStang, I talked with Molly about you, and a new shipment of 2005-09 3rd brake light LEDs are also on their way and due in late December or January, so your replacement is coming through Molly if that's okay. They'll be back in stock for everyone else, of course.

I noticed the center wheel caps (2005-09) have disappeared. Those are an important and inexpensive item, any idea about availability on those?

FYI: They sent me an incomplete kit missing a handful of essential parts to complete the body kit and I have been waiting since January...I hope they can get this issue figured out since I am a long time loyal customer.

Seriously, we paid $1600 for a kit that we can't even use!
