    I know I'm jumping around on things that I'm not in need for right now, but tires...again....I love these up front on my Dad's GT500. 255-45-R18. They hug the wheel with that lip so they do NOT looked stretched at all. Or I also found a 255-40R18.

    Think they would clear when I turn?

    Goodyear
    Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar

    or these...

    Wow, those supercar tires are $300 a piece. Screw that!

    FWIW, I love the look of the KDWs.

    I'm a big fan of BFG's. I run the g force sports on my cars but would love to get the KDW2's. A couple of my buddies have the KDW's on their cars and they love them! I also put them on a t bird i restored. They are a sick looking tire

    I run G Force Sports, too. Great sticky street tire, and cheap enough that you don't feel bad about hazing them every once in a while. :nice:

    Oh yeah!! Thanks for meeting me halfway.

    HUGE THANKS to Chrome_Rust for the 1993 Cobra OEM rear bumper!!!:nice: He met me half way today and hooked me up. He gave me a smokin deal that I couldn't refuse!

    I know if looks rough, but it just needs stripping, primer and paint. It's straight.

    DSC00510.jpg

    New oil pan gasket, water pump, spark plugs, valve cover gaskets, and not pictured....MOOG ball joints Made in the USA!! My shop is pressing them in....time is money. They'll be ready first thing Monday.
    DSC00504.jpg

    Got the Cobra firewall section welded in that I needed.
    DSC00494.jpg

    Mig'd up the sway bar mounts for extra strength.
    DSC00495.jpg

    DSC00496.jpg

    Inside fenderwell/shock tower after the K-frame was out. All ready for primer. It's not rusty as it looks, its all the halfa$$ red paint Ford puts on and old undercoat.
    DSC00499.jpg

    Bay ready for some primer. Hopefully I'm going in today for that.
    DSC00501.jpg

    Dash and column mocked in place for firewall bearing. It has to come back out for wiring later on...
    DSC00498.jpg

    All in all a good Saturday of welding, cutting, fabbing, grinding!:nice:

    More to come..............:D

    Oh....and the Omelete I ate after meeting Chrome_Rust...

    The Everything Omelete. Like 6+eggs and everything inside with gravy...
    DSC00505.jpg
