    hey mr. foose, drawing looks great. car will be very nice when its finished. i like the parts youve chosen. keep us updated on ur project!
     
  6. ah...

    its waiting actually....

    I need to find a parts car... either a 94-95 GT for the engine parts

    or an sn95 cobra (preff 96-98 for the DOCH 32V and T-45 upgrade)

    right now...

    engine is touching the fire wall...
    yolk is jammed into tranny... (could be easy fix... might just need a new seal)
    oil pan has a hole in it
    water pump is squished
    harmonic balence is munged up (hoping crank aint bent)
    need new interior (steering wheel and pass side stuff cause of airbags)
    and windsheild and other obvious damage

    all damage to the frame is from the struts foward... so thats an easy weld job (for me, lol)

    but this is why i need a parts car... I can find a good (totaled) parts car for 500-1000 bucks easy... just need to find one...

    and the aftermarket parts will run me at around 1800 - 1900 bucks...

    so its alot cheaper to go this route considering all the money thats in it already... and sentimental value...

    eabach Full sus
    borla catback
    mac equal length headers and off road h


    Eh... I'm fixin to fix it

    Good luck with the repair. it just needs alot of love, and parts.

    Nice drawing, looks good.
    If that's the Saleen 2 body kit, stay away, I tried it and it sux donkey ballz.

    Just a tip.
     
  8. no... its not the kit...

    just the front bumper...

    but what problems did you have... note i am buy from abcexclusive.com... its the urithane NOT FIBERGLASS...

    I'm trying to take EVERYTHING into consideration here

    I think that should look good imo I think 2" Cobra R cowl will be good, 3" is a bit much IMO. Keep us posted.
     
  10. think ya could do me a huge favor and post a pic of a stang with one or the other... its so hard to tell w/ the s1tty pics @ abcexclusive

    I dont got any pics but I know the 'regular' cobra R hood is 1.25" and thats what I got and its alright I think 2" would look great and anything over would look too big.
     
  12. cool... thanks

    on the site they have these stupid angles... the 2" looked a tit bit on the wimpy side on the site...

    but... that just shows to go ya

    or something like that ???

    keep up the good work, and i think thats a good combo and like matt said anything over 2'' might be 2 much.

    The kit from mrbodykit is what I had problems with.
    ABC = could be fine, might be the same make.
    I have pics of it on my car. I thought it was a little large once I saw it on there.

    you'd want the side skirts to keep the line. just my opinion.

    ok man, wtf did you hit?
     
  18. well i was run off the road...

    I knew kids were waiting for the bus on the left side of the road... but not sure where... and suv straight ahead... and a field with a few obstacles to the right...

    so i went for the field... missed a tree... took out a 12" thick pole... broke it in 3 places...

    when I went through it... the peice that was in the ground caught my undercarrage... sent me air born (guesstimated 2 ft or so) and ripped it out of the ground... slid to a stop in the feild...

    only going 40mph
    no seat belt

    needless to say...

    lucky as fuck to be alive...
