    So is the price $32k? Or rather what is the price? A lot of people have 50-60k into these cars and they don’t necessarily sell for that, so to avoid offending the seller, a listing price would be a good starting point. Thanks

    Yeah that was pretty obvious from his statement and the flat color.... I was just trying to be funny putting a TMI comment from Jeff the other day about carpet glue and a paper bag together.
    I have no life right now other than tv, YouTube and this forum. I read everything and I just put something together that maybe I only noticed lol.
    And yes for sure it looks like a really nice build!

    The kit alone brand new from the original buyer paid nearly $23k, frame is also powder coated. I bought the kit from the original buyer for a huge discount of $8500, the rest of the parts with engine and transmission was roughly 24k. If you want a built car that’s already CA registered waiting to be painted for an amazing deal this would be your chance. I am not looking to make a huge profit, and I am not selling to loose money. Make an offer if your ready and wanting to buy a cobra. I am saving someone the hassle having to find all the right parts and the labor having to put one of these together and lastly having to go through the CA registration process where most people fail to compete. Thanks for all the inquiries! All you need to do is buy the car and take it to the body shop and choose your color, then enjoy the summer and years to come.

    Nice build Mark, GLWS, I'm sure someone will be very happy. Maybe just the perspective of the photo, but it looks in photo 2 that there is a ton of space in the DS footbox even with black pedals. Just curious.

    There is actually a decent amount of room, also the pedals were adjusted and spaced apart where there isn’t any issues with wearing shoes and accidentally rubbing onto one another..
