AC Cobra ( Factory Five) restoration
Permalink  
 


A project I was given to clean up this summer, a good friend's wife came home with it one day after "rescuing" from a not so deserving first 

owner,lol.. Erin took a car that was basically assembled between 2004-2006 and then just driven,never painted,fitted, washed etc... and 

asked me to help her pretty it up a bit. We also did things like make inner hood bracing, adding hinges etc instead of the cheesy looking

hood pins on one end and hood latch handles on the other. Initially it was intended on clean up slightly, and a semi gloss paint, no time at

all I was faced with making it straight enough and door gaps etc good enough for gloss black,lol.. some of you have seen it, some wonder

why I've been so lazy this summer on here... I was still lazy but got stuff done too...

Hood that I added the rivets and the edge to the scoop to emulate a proper aluminum hood

Inner structure to allow for proper latching and closing

Yup,that and about 12 motorcycles , a dozen sets of YOM plates ( no more of them, I retired from that nonsense) so far, two
more bikes to get restored and painted  before November 9Th then my shop is closed for the season so I can go storm chasing with the 
Municipal plow truck again... Oh yeah, and we lowered a Civic, a Kia, a Infinity, did a transmission in a Mercedes plus lowered it too,
lost a brother to cancer, but thats it this year,been pretty quiet..
