    looks great! ...all of it.. ...let us know how that vht paint holds up. i just used the cheapest red paint i could find and prepped it good. held great for bout two years. time for pads so i'm gonna repaint... but i wanna know if that crap is worth the cost?

    I did promise photos of the Cobra carcass, so here you go. Front end looks a little short, ya think? The engine in there is my old V6:

    We finally removed the rear axle, looks a little roomy down there.

    I decided to paint the Cobra engine, rust is definitely not my color. Before:

    And after:

    I used the extra paint to touch up the accessory brackets and the new differential cover. This is a brush-on paint from G2, so it's not perfectly smooth. Before:

    As a matter of fact, yes. Do you live in Southern California? I don't have any way of shipping anything that big right now.

    There's not too much left, really. I'm using everything Cobra-specific except he trunk & spoiler. Mostly a bunch of small parts left. Are you looking for something specific?

    The passenger tail light is cracked, the driver's one is good. Not sure on the paint, it might need a bit of wet sanding to look good. Still interested?
