Question A few parts needed before my first ever drive...where do you guys order from?

I ordered a few things from FinishLine in January, but they havenít shipped yet. Also canít get ahold of anyone by phone, email, or Facebook. Orders from them normally take a few weeks but this has been a few months so Iím starting to think something is up.
Anyway, I need a few things to finish off the car. Trim pieces; Headlight trim rings, wiper arms, hood emblem, etc. where does everyone order their parts from?

Moss Motors for many of those items. For the Cobra specific items, Tony Branda usually has those.

...wipers appear to be very similar to those sold by Street rod suppliers such as Jegs or ...Speedway motors..

What about the wiper blades? 10”, but what style fits on the straight arms?(without the curved over ends).
I think I’ve tracked everything down except for the headlight trim rings and the correct wiper blades

Do these headlight rings fit on another vehicle? I might be able to find it with the search function on some of the parts places online.

These are the style headlight trim rings that original and many replica Cobras use. I can't say for certain that they will fit the Classic Roadsters body. The price is good and I have heard good things about the quality from people who have purchased them: https://www.ebay.com/itm/MGTF-MGA-Bu...IAAOSwrklVLv72

Moss has a lot of wiper blade options for vintage British cars. I am sure you will find something that will work for you on their site.

@MGM those headlight trim rings, are a son-of-a-gun to track down, reg. 7" chrome rings don't fit "Just right" CR's are 1/8" to 1/4" larger than a normal ring, So those reg. headlight trim pieces doesn't fit even with the fender line. I was able to find a NOS CR pieces, My next step was to check the large truck acc. shops "Big Rigs" as their trim rings are larger then car trim rings. Good Luck, Cheers TommyRot.

Hmm... sounds like the headlight rings might be a challenge. They look identical to the Austin mini ones. Iíve had a few minis in the past. But if theyíre slightly larger than standard 7Ē(ie-Jeep/Chevy size) then Iím not sure. Iíll keep looking and update you guys.

Just ordered wipers, found original Lucas 10Ē bayonet style wipers on eBay UK lol. $50 for wipers

Hood emblem I might try using something a little different. Iíll post a picture if it works out.

Horn button I ordered on Amazon: Volante S9 style seems to be the right one for the 9 bolt wood wheels

Thank you guys for all the input. Itís very helpful

MGM, A Mini is a good place to start, 60's car. What I was thinking a 60's Kenworth single headlight, 359 model Peterbuilt, Round nose (Bullnose) Mac's all from the 60's with 7" single headlights, look them up on a vintage truck parts web site, they would have a (Thicker) trim rings, Measure to the outer edge of the headlight bucket then you'll have the correct dia. again good luck, Cheers TommyRot.
