    Nice purchase, how good a deal you get on it? I would take off the side marker reflector and fender flares and that thing will look great. Maybe lower it too. :thumb:

    Hello,

    It's a great car, 32V Cobra is always a good choice because it's a special edition who keep a good value.

    The car is an import from Japan (I'm UK based) so the flares and 95 style lights were standard in 96 models over there. I have purchased the vertical lights to replace the horizontals but getting bits in the UK can be pricey! As Suspect points out the side markers are required over here.

    As for lowering the car this could be an issue as the local council just installed a whole load of speed bumps and I struggle to get over them with my other car (a 76 corvette). Mind you given I persuaded the wife to let me buy the car I may have to introduce any additional work slowly ;)

    Yep the under the bonnet needs a good clean but not long back from getting the whole car rust protected, so some of the over spray from this has landed on the engine. Japan Mustangs have little or no rust protection on its underside, they don't salt the roads in the winter. And where else do you get a 10 year old car with 19k miles on the clock!

    Wow 19k. :eek:

    I didn't even notice the side markers/ fender flares so that don't make it look bad or anything. :) And that car has got to be one of its kind over there.

    What most people dont know [even if they dont like them] are the fact the flares are made by Ford, and even have a part number, but god knows where you would get replacements.
    If you take them off, theres a lot of little holes about a quarter inch wide or so, would need welding\filling in. :(

    And no, its not that rare in the UK, but in Scotland you wont see that many.
