Default Finished street car

This is a follow up to Ron Randall's "This will make you see Green" Post. Well I think it's finally finished. Thanks to Ron for the wonderful paint job and filling in the rear fender for the street filler cap. Here are som pics.











Thanks, John O

BRAVO
Very well done and nicely appointed! Looks great and the dual quad with under hood details really makes for the correct look.

Once again, BRAVO

Very nice looking job. Been looking for those fender guards. May I ask where you got them.

Thanks,
Bill

Fantastic job and some really great details. I have a couple of questions on some of them...........do you know what the glovebox pull is from? Did you use early Beetle running board trim for the splitter edge?
Enjoy it it looks super.

Cool car! The rack on the back is a nice touch. My car is very similar.

Bee-yoo-tee-full, John!! This car will surely be regarded as one of the nicer Cobras in the club. Now you have me (and others, I'm sure) seriously considering converting to the street roadster look. Congratulations on a vision well executed.
