Cobra build

Okay this is what I am starting with sorry bout the thumbnails havent had a time to make a photobucket acount. It ia a 95 cab/bed with an 08 front end. 2.3l 4 banger 5 speed tranny. At the moment im working on getting the truck nice again.

Agenda
new ignition switch-complete
new window crannks-complete
find and terminate the rattle-complete
paint wiper arms-complete
new exhaust-complete
fix cig lighter/ash tray-complete
lower/flip rear shackles-doing it saturday/6/26/10
paint stock rims black will get aftermarket when budget allows
custom painted hood
moving in the bumper
halo blackout headlights
black out tails
mustang seats
cobra emblems
custom racing pedals
mustang cobra powertrain
strut tower bar
roush lowering springs
roush or cobra decals-cant decide on the theme?
shaving door handles
black out tint
complete kicker sound system-fitment still gotta figure that out single cabs / :


This build is going to take a long time as i am broke as hell just got bored and decided to go ahead and make the thread on it. If you have any ideas shoot two brains are usually better than one. Only had the truck for two weeks and cant stop spending what little money I have on it you all know how that goes lol. I will update with pics on the truck lowered saturday.

looks like it'll be pretty sick, I love steppies/reg cabs lowered. the shackle flip is easy, I did mine last weekend, only takes like 3 hours or so, taking the bed off is the hardest part haha

Sounds like you have your work cut out for you. Looks to be a clean truck to start with. Hope you get $$$$ soon, or this will be years in the making. Good luck

as far as decals, go cobra decals is its a cobra build, imo, and if its project cobra dont use stock wheels, get some 03-04 cobras!! if you got the money for the powertrain im sure you could squeeze another $4-500 for some decent wheels.

yeah the cobra build would be cheaper finding a roush powertrain would take a while and would cost a pretty penny but would be so cool um this is one of those projects that will unfortunately take a couple years as of right now the university of alabama in bham is sucking me dry. I just finished flipping the shackles today i will post pictures in a minute.
