[QUOTE]Originally posted by the walrus: [QB] Still at it. I had a mobile painter come out and do a bit of a re-spray focusing mostly on the top of the car where I had a bunch of fisheyes that I had to sand down. He got that part of it looking better. I then spent about 20 hours over two days wet sanding and polishing to cut down some of the orange peel, etc. Darn near sanded my fingerprints off! Still need to do a final polish but I will likely wait for warmer weather to do that. Painted and attached the side moldings and front spats. Cleaned and painted the rear end, front control arms and spindles. Starting some re-assembly now. I went with Power Stop 13 inch brakes for a 2003 Cobra since I already had SN95 spindles. I also ordered some Cobra decals from ebay. They're a little cheesy but whatever, the powder coating on the calipers looks great and it's a nice functional upgrade over stock. Using KYB shocks and struts, Eibach springs, and UPR rear control arms. Got a bunch of stuff from Prothane for the front as well. I painted one wheel a gunmetal color as a test. I think we'll run that for a while. The rear end will get new axle bearings and seals and I installed new Ford bushings as well. Starting to come together a bit. I am hoping to have the car back on 4 wheels by the end of the week. :) <img src="https://www.ffcars.com/forums/members/albums/10107-justin-roberts/justin-roberts-2849-picture45510-polished.jpg" style="max-width: 640px" alt=" - " /> <img src="https://www.ffcars.com/forums/members/albums/10107-justin-roberts/justin-roberts-2849-picture45512-mustang-8-8.jpg" style="max-width: 640px" alt=" - " /> <img src="https://www.ffcars.com/forums/members/albums/10107-justin-roberts/justin-roberts-2849-picture45514-brakes.jpg" style="max-width: 640px" alt=" - " /> [/QB][/QUOTE]
