I had the same experience. They were less than helpful and my kit looked like a 5 year old welded it. They painted over welding wire...

Well, once I figured out how to actually install it it went very well and I like the configuration.

I ended up having to get on a forum and talk to a bunch of guys about the AJE rear. Pretty good stuff on there. Iíve got a lot of pictures now of the install and the setup.

Doors and fenders lined up pretty great. Body lines look good too. Glad I went with all the same brand stuff. Worked out well.




Was mocking up seats. Noticed my seat bases were super broken, had to grind it all down, welded the seat bases back up and got it all coated. Ordered some new seat track stud and nuts to mount the seats properly. Pretty awesome. Next is getting the floor pulled in and welded in.

Canít wait to have the body solid.

I don’t want to jinx it, but it’s starting to look like a car again.

If you are staying with factory seats, and redoing them yourself, have fun and have your swear jar ready.

Well that's cool. Measure this. The seat bases are much higher on the newer seats. You may need to lower the seat risers for them to fit right.

Fox seats are considerably shorter at the base than 04 Cobra seats. Don't contradict me in front of the kids, Nemesis.
