    Here are the pice from the dealer, followed by mine right after I bought it. Then I made a little change to the rear.

    I also got rid of the aftermarket pocket under the stereo and put in a factory non-cd player car. Looks much better.

    Looks much better with the stock tails. The seats look mint as well...

    Now looking to do the SFC's from either Stifflers or MM. Haven't decided yet. I know the Stiffler's are a little overkill for a stock snake, but you never know what the future might hold for this one.

    Anybody have experience with the Stiffler's stuff?

    I would guess he didn't like grabbing the remote for the stereo from the back seat after anytime he gunned it. No one ever did. The faceplate for the factory stereos was only held on with 2 screws. I removed mine and made a nice dummy faceplate with it to cover my cd player when I do not want it to be seen. If I had a pocket and a non working factory deck I would probably try and combine the two. Maybe with some magnets from harbor freight you could attach the faceplate to the pocket and make it hold stuff..

    It isn't often that while I am paging through the net that a picture makes me groan out loud. So rare that it makes LOL seem like an hourly occurrence really but those tail lights literally made me gol(groan out loud).

    Like everyone else, you had me up until you got to the back of the car. Looks great now!

    i hope you do the right thing and smash the lights with a hammer and then throw them out. Do not sell those lights. Low milage cobra is a very nice find. I hope to find a 95 cobra one day.

    The taillights look fine with the black bezels but the trunk decklid is a no for me. And if that's plasti-dip it's a hell no.

    The tail light bezels are painted but the license plate surround is plasti-dip to see if I liked it before I prepped and painted it. Jury is still out. Thinking about maybe doing the trunk all the way across to see how it looks.

    Nice looking low mile car. I have been debating the black all the way across on my vert but being that its DFG I don't know that there is enough contrast between the two colors to make it pop. I have seen it on a few other cars and personally like the look.

    Nice Cobra none the less!
