The pic is a "modern interior" option supplied by an Australian Cobra kit builder (hence the right-hand drive layout). I have a few other pics, but I'm not here to promote another kit on the FF forum.
I think I know what you mean about "somewhere between this and a piece of sheet metal". I was hoping there might be some unique interiors out there that have a few more curves than the traditional Cobra flat dash panels..... something classic, but not too modern-looking (ie not plastic/vinyl-looking).
I've got something else designed for my Cobra, but don't have the skills to attempt it yet.
I saw your car when you graduated it, but I didn't notice the modified quickjacks. Those are cool !!
Do you have maybe a few closeups of the quickjacks that you could post? I might try fabbing up a set or two..They're very sexy...

Well you asked for it. This is my version of use every donor part you can.
Yeah, the guy who built my Cobra used a whole bunch of donor parts (instrument cluster, CD/radio, mode cluster, cruise control, traction control, etc), as you can see in the pic below.
I'm in the process of giving it a complete overhaul, including dash, console, door trims (with push-button actuators rather than the current handles) and a revised pod between the seats. Slowly, slowly.
I noticed in pic of the red car, that the lip going all the way aroud the cock pit is rounded is that a fact 5, and if so could some one direct me too the process that is intaled, i think it is a nice touch some thing i am cosidering

Here's mine, car's still under construction, will have a leather cover and some trim added.
This is just the mold plug, have the glass piece but it doesn't look good unfinished;Patrick
I'm really hoping you are a short and smaller guy. After I built my first roadster, I realized that putting in the console was a bad idea as I had absolutely NO legroom. Your console is actually creeping into the drivers area even more than the traditional consoles. I hope you reconsider.
Ours is still a work in progress, but getting closer to completion...
