Another Cobra just finished.

Myself and my customer picked up this Mark 4 on March 25th and started building right away. We have a total of 21 working days into it. Paint and bodywork was being done at the same time. The car features an IRS rear FFR front suspension, Fortes 5.0 Litre engine with a 5 speed tremec T5 This car has A/C, Heat, heated seats, Navigation, rear cubby from Breeze, trunk mod for more storage, RT turn signal and many other options and goodies. Car is painted BR green.

The BR green, soft top, and luggage rack give it a very British flavor. Who's soft top is that, has a decent look to it? You two had to be putting in long hours to complete the car in just a couple of months, nice work!

Beautifully done

Wonderful color (I may be a bit biased) and a great job, almost sent me running to the garage until I saw the side pipes. Where in Florida is it headed?

Carl, I'm not sure what type of luggage rack is on Mike's customer's car, but the one I have is from an MGB - I saw some info on the forum a while back stating that an MGB rack fits our FFR's almost exactly, and I can confirm it from personal experience.

Here it is mounted to the lid:


Kind of hard to see in this pic, but it's the exact same one as on my wife's MGB:

Beautiful work Mike. Obviously knowing what the heck you are doing goes a long way in reducing the build time and having it come out right.
