I have never been able to say that before. Today, I did the last thing....connect the licence light ground and wash the car. I always target some number of projects for the Cobra over the winter. With the warm weather, I've had the chance to get them all done. They included the FunFord drop budd mod, install lowered chrome rollbar, install new voltmeter, install new water pump.

Jack- how did you lower your roll bar on an already finished car ?

I cut the main hoop 2 inches...although it's not as far down on the mounts as my black one was, so I'd say I got an effective 1.5 inches.

The 3rd leg is only cosmetic. It's made from cutting part of another roll bar leg. Then the top piece of that rollbar was removed and cut in half to use it as an intermediate piece between the frame mount and the third leg. (note....for those who say that this is unsafe...I alternate between a rollbar and no rollbar at all from one year to the next). I then used a 1/2 round file to file the body to allow a reasonable fit. It's not actually perfect, but good enough. The trim rings actually still fit and there's no exposure of the old holes. I actually was able to use the exact same holes for the front rings although the bar is farther forward (body back). The 3rd leg ring had to be finagled to fit and cover all of the old holes. It wasn't difficult. I did redrill the holes for the 3rd one.
