LOL @ "KurrupT"!

And that welding job is the worst I have ever seen and I've seen some poor work. And I have never seen an SN95 SVT Cobra that butchered.

Though those '96-'98 Teksid aluminums blocks are built very well. Iirc they have 'squared hatching' on the intake valley, where as WAP (Windsor Ass. Plant) cast blocks have 'cross hatching' (looks like diamonds vs squares).

You talking about the "welds" on the exhaust? If so, yeah, pretty terrible but not my problem anymore as the guy who bought the roller also threw in an extra $200 for the headers and H Pipe. I'll be getting new ceramic coated headers for it.

Kevin was planning this week to remove the intake, valve covers, oil pan, timing cover, and brackets to get them sand blasted and cleaned up to be good to go for new paint as well as all new gaskets to ensure no leaks.

Yes, I was talking about the h-pipe and headers. Great job in getting $200.00 for them, lol.

Also, good idea on the gasket set. It should come with them but the o-rings that go on the spark plug valleys but if they don't I'd get those for too for sure.

Been a while since I updated this, it's been a bunch of boring stuff blocking and sanding some of the body panels and getting them perfect. Getting the front bumper done with the Cobra insert to make it look like it was original and not cut and stuck on there. The top of it will also be closed in and look like a GT bumper cover from the top when you open the hood (can't tell a difference with hood closed). Pics from a while back while it was being worked on.






Anyway, after the shell got completely stripped and Kevin thought he got any/all rusted panels replaced he sent it out for media blast and discovered there was more rust in the passenger floor pan so I shipped him a passenger pan replacement from LMR which he managed to install and make it look better than factory. The car is officially rust free now, straight, and ready to start shaving the engine bay. The car, including the new floor pans has 5 fresh coats of epoxy primer.
