Well I made a real dumb mistake while putting my Cobra back together this summer. Here's a pic, can you figure out what I screwed up?



I thought something seemed odd at the time ...

What's your color combo? Looks nice and different as well.

Besides all that has been mentioned, you forgot to put the windwings and visors on.

You're quick street. I though I might be opening myself up for some good ones, and you guys didn't let me down :D .

FFCars, I believe the latches are on right? In the pic, the latches are pointing towards the nose of the hood. Maybe it looks off as I moved them from their original location, closer to the center of the hood?

The color is VW Techno Blue. I highly recommend it. It's a good choice for a medium blue.

Lee, you're good. I've had those wings and visors for a year now, and am spending too much time driving, and not getting the damn things on.

I'm also missing the bezels for the front turn signals. Those things fell off way too easy, and were destroyed.

Duane,

I think your hood latches ARE facing the wrong way. They should point towards the back of the car when the hood is secured, and turned forward when it is unlatched. Maybe this is a personal preference thing.....

Otherwise, the car looks great!! We have to get together and go cruising. That is, as soon as the rain lets up, and FFR sends me a new door latch....my original one broke.

Later,
Damian

Duane, I had lost one of the bezels also. There is a British car parts supplier in Houston that was able to provide an exact replacement for about $25. I think the website is something like britishcarparts.com

Wow, it never even dawned on me that I may have the hood latches on backwards :rolleyes: . I need to add some more pics so y'all can point out all the other oddities on my car.

Lee, I remember us talking a while back now about that place. It's a good hour drive from me and I've been meaning to take a cruise to it. Once we dry up (fingers crossed, the forcast is calling for sun the rest of this week) here in Houston, I'll cruise on over.
