Thread: Replacement fiberglass Cobra body panels?

  1. #1

    Replacement fiberglass Cobra body panels?

    Hi,

    Hopefully this hasn't already been asked, I couldn't find a thread on it. I was wondering if anyone knew if Factory Five offered replacement body panels for their Cobra for sale. We found a damaged track car for sale that will need a new nose clip in the end. We can repair the frame and mechanicals, but a new clip would be necessary and it's availability will determine whether we pick up the project of not.

    If anyone knows the answer or can help, it would really be appreciated !

    Thanks,

    T

    Not that I'm aware of. At least not as a standard part. But perhaps they would make something for you. Call them. You can have your answer in minutes.

    No MK1-MK3 hoods were made without scoops , but the MK4 hood does not have a scoop. Don't know if a MK4 hood will fit your car.

    Now I don't if this makes a difference or not. I received my kit in June, a friend of mine received his kit in August. I was over at his place last night and he pointed out to me how thin his body shell appeared compared to mine. I came home and using the exhaust cutout for reference, my body is a tick over 1/8". His body in the same spot was 1/16". Looking around his body, it appears to be this thin throughout. Is this something new and why?

    I'll 3rd just giving them a call - as far as I know the challenge guys are always tearing the body's up......rubbing is racing after all
    No a MKIV flat hood won't fit MKI to MKIII.

    They are hand laid, so will vary.
