Exclamation Good Lord another Rattle!

Ok so first the door panel, the other day the heat shield. Removed the heat shield and now a rattle coming from the right front fender when pulling away in first gear. What the hell. Anyone else get noise from the right front of their SVT?

It is probably two or three things causing the noise. I removed the cat shield and the header shield. Don't worry, I am going to wrap the header and cat today. Have narrowed the search to maybe the alluminum exhaust shield bolted to the body or something at the lower engine compartment. Still scratching my head. This is a job for more than one person.
