do you mind sharing what you paid for the paint work?

also with the fog lights - they sell ones with clear lenses that look like the head lights, Id highly recommend doing that for the upgrade. It looks better and more light

Have a long list, but this is going to take more then 1 year to complete. Hopefully the engine gets done by the end of summer.

Engine rebuilt
Paint
New carpet
New seats
New tint
CD player
Wheels maybe FR500's
Short throw MGW
New suspension

I got two quotes. First quote was before I noticed the crack in the lower bumper cover which also was causing the passenger fog light to flop around. That quote for the paint work only was $1,100.

I then went to another shop and got a quote for the paint work plus repairing the crack in the bumper. They quoted me $800. So I let them do it. They did great work. Can't even tell it was ever painted. I'm going to source the hood decal myself from American Muscle and put that on this spring.

I think I know the fog lights you are talking about. AM sells those too and I've been eyeballing them.

Re: 2018 Plans for your car.

I had the hood and front bumper repainted in November to take care of rock chips from being driven daily. It pretty much just gets driven twice a week now. They removed hood and bumper and blended into the fenders. Cost was $2200.00 including replacing the hood stripes. Work was next to perfect. One of the employees used to work for 50Resto and they put a new front spoiler on at no charge for me.

Next to do this year are shocks / struts, complete brake job with new rotors, replace serpentine belt along with tuneup and fuel filter. In the fall I'll do oil change and coolant flush.

I got a "hotwheels logo" badge (from a 2013 Camaro Special Edition) and I'm trying to decide where to put it.

Re: 2018 Plans for your car.

Since my build is complete, I need to adjust the new Flaming River steering linkage, install the new clutch cable and install new a/c lines. Most important, I need to drive it. Car has just a tick over 25,000 miles.

Re: 2018 Plans for your car.

I have CAI, BAMA tune, ported and matched exhaust manifolds with full BBK exhaust. I am thinking maybe 96 Cobra intake cams would finish it off? Can't remember if those cams effect smog though. Guessing no since they are stock on Cobras.

Re: 2018 Plans for your car.

Removing the 14yr old tint for a clean look and 3M clear film. Installing Bassani X-pipe w/cats. Fix rear window defrost tab. Purchase Bilstien struts so I can finally lower the Mach. I’ve had Springs, rear shocks and CC plates in the garage for years now.

Re: 2018 Plans for your car.

  • stock air box and filter
  • leds in fog, dome, and some other exterior lamps
  • sequential taillight harnesses and relay
  • installed new shifter bezel due to damage
  • installed IAC plate to solve hi idol on start up

Yep staggered with 275's in the front and 295's in the rear. Running Nitto NT05s. I wanted something different and these gt350 knockoffs definitely look killer in person. I had some mach 1 center caps to match my car made. The logo is in light blue like the ones everyone used to get from making it digital. They shipped from the Ukraine lol. I got them today after 20 days in shipping. Gonna look great.

Re: 2018 Plans for your car.

Got two quotes to repair my driver side seat "leather" which is actually vinyl I guess. First shop $250, second shop $360. The second shop gets the job because they work on classic cars all the time so they understand what I'm trying to accomplish, whereas the first shop does custom work for 'hood rides mostly to make things flashy.

So, hopefully the interior will be complete by the end of this month and then I just have some touch-up work to do on the exterior to get her ready for car shows.

I'm also having trouble hitting 3rd gear at heavy throttle so I'm going to look into what causes this and try to make it better.

those came in just after i got my gloss black fr5's last year. really like that wheel. I had seen the pre-production wheel and it was spot on.

had to get something done when i did and these were a few weeks out still when i got the fr5's. had someone waiting for my other wheels so i had to move...

May upgrade to these next year or at next tire change...(which as most of you know is usually when i change wheels LOL.)

Re: 2018 Plans for your car.

I like the Cobra side scoop inserts! How was that and where did you find those?

Nice!

2 ways to do it:
1) take a tiny flat blade screwdriver and try to pry off where the lil push in clips are making sure not to chip/damage your paint...

or the method I used

2) grab firmly and pull the entire scoop off , its held on w/6 tiny nylon clips that are pretty tough, in fact, the scoop plastic mounts (6) will brake before the clips do, I had to re-glue two of my clip retainer mounts which was no biggie w/superglue. The good news if you do this method is, there is a plastic seal behind the scoop and in most cases it is not stuck on to the car any longer so you can clean it up and reseal it to the car, I used a lil rtv silicone since the original glue was contaminated with dirt/dust and resealed it to the car.

Once you get the scoop off the inserts just push out from the back side.

Where to get them:
you can buy used cobra side scoops on ebay but you have to look for ones w/the terminator inserts or there is actually a guy also on ebay selling some of those NOS inserts at a NOS price too Not sure how many sets he has left as these are no longer made.

Thanks to 2 members on this forum; 311-420 & ab_mach1 for the idea...

Re: 2018 Plans for your car.

Keep it driving. Still running well after daily driven for so many years. Notice a bit of a burning smell while under a decent load so maybe my goal is to figure out the cause.

Oh, and probably a new AC compressor.
