Hey, that looks better,
I posted on your thread in SVTP.

I like the wheels.

What rear cover are you going with?

Authentic Saleen rear and side skirts...

First off I love your car very nice looking. I don't know which rims I like better though haha. For a show car I would have to go with the Red for right now. They are just different and I think they look very good. Are you gonna use the S281 Wing or the other? And I love that hood do you have any pics of it from above or anything like that I have been waiting for someone to show up with that hood. Very nice Car goodluck with it.

Do you have the little fins on the top of the hood cut out or are they still solid like when you get them from ABC?

They are still solid, but when I paint my car, I might cut them. I might sell this hood, would you be interested?

Your car looks sweet in the latest pics. It looks so evil, like its going to eat something. It would look so nasty in black.

Re: My 98 Cobra... Major Changes Soon - **DUW** New Pictures on Post #36 Air Ride!!

LOOKS LIKE FUN! ;D

On a side note, i love air bag suspension, but i've always wondered, are there any cons performance wise? Maybe such as high speed cornering ability or launching? I was just wondering because i know with hydraulics high speed is an issue and such.

Props on a sweet stang! RUHPRUHSENT! :banana:
