    The other cobra in this picture is a bit unique. Its an older Mark 2 that is here for a restoration. It is one of a handful of carbon fiber bodied cars.

    Both very nice Mike!

    Funny how some old Mk3 cars seem to be creeping out and being finished lately---I have 2 in the shop currently.

    They look great, Mike. Oh, and by the way, I got my trunk support today. Thanks for getting that out so quickly. Looks like my Saturday project is ready to go!

    Both cars look great. My personal preference is the Mk3 color chrome combo, but you can’t go wrong with either one. Nice work!

    Great job Mike, guess you love your job!! The difference in the roll bars, is that just the old 2" bar as opposed to the newer style 1 1/2"? Also who manufactured the wheels, they look different on each car. Again, great job!

    I love the Marlin Blue Metallic FACFIVE5. How do you like the Sherwin Williams paints vs other options? I am a year away from being ready for paint, but I am starting to read up on everything and figure out what would be best for my first project and what I am looking to accomplish.
