Now that I have done a few things to the Cobra, it is time to start a build thread. First, this site has been great so far for me and I have already bought some parts from another member! Thanks guys for the help you have already given and I am sure will continue to give me. Now on to the car. Purchased 8/27 from Reno Auto Center it is a Crystal White 98 Cobra convertible with black top and saddle interior. Supposedly only 1 of 6 made in this combination in 1998. Bought with 107,350 on the odometer, and it was not stock. What I know it had: -Vortech V1 supercharger -caster camber plates -lowered -short throw shifter -Hurst T handle -SLP exhaust -reflective rear bumper insert -Optima red top battery Sadly, I still have no info on the tune or if any internal mods were done. Still working on that. Vortech does custom write tunes for each supercharger it sells, so I will likely give them a buzz to see what they know. This was as it sat when I bought it: I did remove the pinstriping down the sides already. I prefer the clean looks without it. As good as the pic makes it look, I assure you it is not THAT clean. Paint I would say is about a 5/10. Interior 7/10 with normal wear and tear noticed. Top was 9/10. Wheels 7/10 and tires 5/10. Engine ran strong and had no noises/issues noted 7/10. Brakes looked good on visual outside of the inner ring of the rotors being rusted. Time to get out a wire brush! After driving it for a couple weeks, I noticed what I assume to be a pulley squeak/whine that is coming from an as yet undetermined location - possibly the supercharger or just under it. I also now get a whine when turning the wheel at low speeds. So, possibly power steering issues. I have also noticed just a few drops of oil of some sort on the ground, just not sure if its power steering fluid or engine oil. Just gotta get the time to look more into it. Also the headlight switch does not function properly. It never gets fully bright, and when dimming it comes in and out. Makes seeing speed/rpm at night hard.... Have a new switch on the way. Had to add a battery tie down since there oddly was not one there when I bought it. Replaced the stock stereo with a nice Sony unit with BT, USB, AUX and all that fun stuff. I went with the Sony because it has the ability to read my text/email through the stereo. Huge selling point for me. I then went to remove the Hurst T handle and it ended up shearing off the short shifter so I could not put any knob on there. So I ordered a Steeda TRI-AX and put that on with the Momo knob a buddy gave me. Actually looks pretty solid, and love the way it shifts. Had a TRI-AX on my 94 and 01 GT's with no issues so I know it is good. Pics of that and the stereo here: I now have a few more parts on the way, small things though like door lock pins and headlight switch knob. It has a billet one on there that just does not look right to me. Not my style at all. That is it for now, though I know this car will keep me busy and happy! Absolutely love it, and as my 5th Mustang I finally got the Cobra I was lusting after back in high school!
