Re: Coupe Update

It took my hubby 2 weeks to put the Cobra back together after it was fully taken apart, He called it his 10,000 piece jigsaw puzzle!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck it is great to see these coupes looking stunning again.

Re: Coupe Update

Looking good. Have fun with the rebuild.

The last XB we got resprayed came back with a tin of bolts. The guy explained "um, we don't know where these go".

Good think the bolts were getting replaced anyway.

Re: Coupe Update

Paint looks nice. Makes me want to spray 2pak on my next paint job. 2pak's finish of the gun is so nice

Re: Coupe Update

I have all the screws, bits and bolts in plastic zip up bags which are labled... just to make it easy on me.

Next year i'm going to throw some money at my brother (mechanic with bout 20 years experiance) and get him to build me a strong 351.
