Yes indeed, super easy to replace. Can do it in 5 minutes each. And yes, they are a bargain!!

Note the "2004" on the stickers.

I'm a bit leery of these "New Old Stock" parts, especially after seeing a forum member's clamshell with brand "new" struts blow shut in a light breeze. Sitting on the shelf seeping nitrogen for 12 years.

I'm going to spec some struts from McMaster Carr. $17 each. 15.24" is the correct length I think. Just have to figure out the right extension force. Weight of clamshell on a bathroom scale divided by two, and add 10 lbs each for wind resistance.

Ford Performance gave them away for completing a marketing survey.

I have an extra. Give me a mailing address and it's yours.

I don't know if all Michael's are consistent quality, but my local store is top notch. Which is more than I can say about the distortion control of my phone camera lens.

Can I get one if I attended COTA to cheer on Ford but sat on the opposite grandstand? :shrug I did get to see the 50 GT's in the parking lot which was quite a sight! And some sweet Ford gear at the tent. What a fantastic day.

I don't know about any one else but I'm running out of room for my art work from all the Rally's. Guess I'll have to add on to my building? That's just one side of the wall too.

Tomy, it appears that you have bigger problems than art. There doesn't seem to be room for a new GT! :biggrin

I went a different route with a poster Xcentric was kind enough to send me. Thought it might be a nice piece for car shows. Perfect size for two locations on the car, as we might have to add another next June... For anyone copying the idea, I would suggest an additional bar to hold the clamshell open. I had a gust of wind close my shell at a car show once, no big problem, but it would tend to mess up the poster.
It will be about 5 months here before I can take a car show picture.

That's pretty sweet!

If the clamshell blows shut, you need new struts. Sounds like a little rap.

Rear clam shell shocks loose their pressure and need to be replaced. Not expensive to replace. I recently replaced mine.
