    Well the cobra goes to the body shop on the 1st of the month. The insure. company didn't total the cobra they are saying that is fixable, So I got them chasing oem parts down for me. Well I'm going to have them shave the door handles, I just want to know where to go to get a good kit? Any one know where to get them from? thanks

    i shaved my door handles on my 89 stang about 4-5 years ago. i cant remember what kit it was but it was the cheapest one i could find. it worked perfect for about2 years then i sold the car. you should be good with any kit really. our doors arent really that heavy. if i were you i would put an emergency hidden cable just in case. in my case i just climed through the hatch when my battery went dead.....:rlaugh:

    I am thinking about shaving all the locks off but leaving the door handles (off the hatch as well). The locks are what the criminals are breaking off these days. If the battery dies I will just be SOL. I will figure out a way to jump another battery onto it.

    Pauly did you delete the trim that goes on the door ??

    i would not personally shave a cobra's door handles you want that to look like it came off the factory floor.

    But do what ever makes you happy you own the car for enjoyment.

    for a trailer queen or just a rarely driven show car shaved door handles are cool. For a daily driver I think they suck. I say keep the handles anyways, but it's ur bro's decision

    Yea it all happened in 3 days. When I went to get the 91 gt my truck craped on me. Working on getting the 91 gt off the truck back home some one hit me. Get the cobra out and a lady a holes me. Getting the clone up, it dosen't start or stay running. So my buddy lets me drive his daily driver so I can go back to base. And he drives his 91 syclone for a daily driver. Hes a real friend.

    Cobra goes to body shop on the 1st of april.
    cobra clone goes to shop on monday
    91 gt goes in shop after cobra gets back
    finding a 300, 6 for the truck.
    bills are going to be really big next month!!

    SPal makes a decent kit. although I have begun to hate mine..... gotta watch how you park so your doors dont hit the car next to you when you hit the button too soon IE: before you are there to catch it....
    they are about $90 on e-bay... 200 on their website.

    I shaved my truck lid (no more emblem and lock cylinder, and i shaved the passenger side lock cylinder. Looks pretty clean now. I just gotta finish up the body work and get her painted. Pics will be up this summer and hopefully finished.

    Just keep in mind, you can't slim jim the door when your batt is dead, you can unlock it, but you can't open it. I would do some research and find an alternate source for entry just in case you battery does die.

    :OT: S&B The vid in your sig.... not exactly what I was expecting.
