If I had a digital camera of my own I would post some pictures. I got bored this afternoon and took everything out from the rear seats back. Trim, seats, seat belts and speakers are all in the spare bedroom. Next weekend if I can find a heat gun to borrow I might remove the carpet, center console and seats so I can start scraping. Once I have everything out of the way I need to find someone to build a cage or order an autopower with door bars. :bounce:

Hell Yea!!! I've got a heat gun you can use. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: I know a real good cage builder but he might be pretty busy right now. :D :D

Shoot I forgot this weekend is a long work weekend for me but I might have some time to work on it. You know I never thought when I got this car 2 years ago I would strip it down to race it. Its probably going to be this winter before I can cage it anyway. I cant go overboard right now because I will have to drive it to and from events until I can afford a tow vehicle. The plan is to use the car for HPDE, Solo I time trials, Solo I hill climbs and some autox. If I ever really get my stuff together I want to do AI but I really need to get some track experience.

Another one converted...I LOVE IT!!! ;) :D :thumbsup: Just be careful if you add a cage with door bars if you plan to continue autoxing...it may bump you into the "Mustang don't play well" classes!! ;) :D Borrow someone's camera...we need pictures!! :thumbsup:

I am going to worry more about Solo I safety and less about autox classes. The car will probably end up in CP so it will still be fun on a local level. Hmmm let me see who I can find with a digital camera.

No luck with digital camera from the neighbors. I will ask around at work tomorrow. At least now I have time to finish washing and waxing before I take pictures.

Thanks everyone. It might take me awhile to get where I want to be with the car. I will post pictures every couple weeks or sooner when I make changes. Right now the idea is to have it ready for school next year.

Good to talk to you again Todd. I am passing my set of 98 Cobra wheels on to Mark at Carolina Mustang (2 sets of 17x8 was 1 to many). He is going to paint them black and put them on his Crown Vic! Should be pretty cool.

John's already offered the use of a sawzall, my second favorite tool behind an 8lb sledge. :D

That is a beautiful sight dude. I have tears in my eyes. WHITE COBRAS RULE!!!!!!!

Here's the next step:

White is by far the best color for a Cobra (sorry John :D but its true).

I have to make up my mind on a cage setup. Right now I have been tossing the idea around of finding someone to do a custom cage or buying an autopower road race setup with the u-weld front half and doing it myself. This is going to have to be a budget buildup but I also dont want to skimp on the things that will save my life. Anyone wanna offer their $.02?

Calvin, I should have some time this summer to help out with a cage if you want. I'm cheap! LOL!

That would be awesome just let me know when you have time. Since I am not looking to start going to schools until next year there is plenty of time. :thumbsup:

If its not raining when I get home I think the carpet, headliner, center console and door panels are coming out.

Looking good Dave! :thumbsup:

I wasnt going to start until the end of this season but I want to start doing OT schools and maybe time trials next year. Rather than be rushed this winter I will start now. Besides it keeps the neighbors thinking I am crazy.

Boy have I been slacking off. Anyway the interior is gone except for dash and drivers seat. I pulled out fog lights, and hood liner this afternoon. Things still on the list...battery relocation, remove tar, brake ducts, remove ac, home built through the floor subframe connectors and I need to take some more pictures to post. I should be headed down for a cage in the next couple months and I still have to find some seats, but I am making some progress.

One of the neighbors has one I might be able to borrow tomorrow. I have a camcorder I can borrow if I can come up with a seat mount before VIR. Any suggestions?
