    Soooo its been freezing cold here for about a month now and my car is now in the shop for paint. I did most of the dissasembly today, the body work will start monday afternoon and hopefully she'll be in primer by the end of the week (somehow I doubt that) Ive been searching for some 04 Cobra mirrors but I cant find a good deal on any and even tho I can get 10% over cost at work the price is still rediculous. But today moving it around inside the shop reminded me how much Ive missed it and how nice it is.... ::) Guess you gotta do what you gotta do sometimes.

    I had flames masked off on the car and gave it alot of consideration...sonic blue flames would look sick I think but I dont know about owning a Cobra with flames on it.

    What Im thinkin is Ill paint the car the factory blue, clear it with some blue/green pearl in the first coat, then a clear second coat. Bake that and about 3 days later wet sand and block that down and clear it again 2 more times....You say you want depth huh?

    Man i wish I could come to Texas, I bet the clubs there are off the chain dude

    Hail damage and the car just needs it anyways. Lots of chips and scratches, most of my friends think Im crazy for not just leaving it the way it is, but this car is my life, my inspiration for all that I do and most of all it is what keeps me motivated to keep moving up and making more money. So I see no better way to treat her than with a fresh new paint job. Im thinkin about buyin a 95R hood and maybe a different spoiler, or a V6 decklid and go wingless

    Feel the pain...

    Haven't driven mine since Oct. 6 when we started the M90 conversion. So I have a supercharged Stang that I've NEVER driven (under boost)... :rant:
