    Not much of an update, but maybe it will motivate me to get more and more done!
    I purchased some brake line and a "T" fitting for when I do the IRS swap.


    The Cobra is currently sitting in the shop waiting for me to start stripping body panels for the body work and other stuff.

    Got some Carbon in thanks to @ThomasW. It's one of his firewall panels. It looks great!
    Also pictured next to it is the carbon cowl panel from Carbon Driven. I got it on clearance before they went out of production.
    Now I need to save up to get the rest of the carbon pieces I plan to use..

    Not much but I did place an order for a Stifflers Fit System while the 10% discount sale is going.

    Maybe this will motivate me to get started on the Cobra once again.

    I have that set up on my car. Made a noticeable difference in the stiffness of the body.

    Not sure when that's gonna happen yet. I've still got the Cobra brake 5 lug upgrade for the 93 to do. Also need to clean the shop up enough to replace the heater core in a Durango.
    Then I'll need to see if my dad has one of his drag cars on the lift to weld them in.

    Got a set of satin bronze Rovos Durbans that were on clearance. 18x10.5 rear and 18x9 front.

    Finally! I received my GR40 carbon spoiler from Griggs Racing after waiting what seems like forever.

    Nice, have you installed the subframe connectors yet?

    No I have not yet. I've got to wait until my dad gets one of his drag cars off the lift. Then after that, hopefully I'll be able to at least get the sub frame connectors on. Then later get the jacking rails and diagonal bracing in.

    When you do install them would you mind taking pics of how you do the trans mounts?

    Thanks!

    No problem.
    But mine might be slightly different as I moved the trans mount several years ago when the T-56 went in.

    Well, that would be different... Pics would be good anyway, just because.

    Picked up a little more carbon fiber during the holiday sales.

    '03/'04 Cobra side skirt splitters from Carbon Driven.

    I also picked up a Stifflers tubular transmission crossmember.
