They were on the car when I purchased it, but I am 99% sure they are Wilwood.

Something like this but they have tons of different options:

No color yet, but after one more sanding, we should be seeing red (in a good way)!!!

Kind of a shame to cover up all that aluminum with paint...

I got a great surprise this morning when Craig sent me pictures of my RED Cobra!!! Unbeknownst to me, my car was painted over the weekend and I couldn't be happier. The pictures look great and I am looking forward to seeing the car in person. Time to start putting all the pieces and parts back on!!

Hi Patrick. I specifically requested beige but was told that color had a 52-week lead time since it is very popular with the Cobra crowd so I went with my second choice

Nice paint job. She sure will be a looker when it is al done. The sound as the cobra approaches will draw their attention and the beauty will keep them looking.

Thanks guys - I appreciate the kind words. Craig has done an awesome job and I am really excited to be getting close to the finish line. It has been a long but worthwhile project and I can't wait to be driving my Cobra!!
