I also had the painter paint the footboxes for us after we fixed the previous shops hack job of trying to fit them.
They look great now and should do the job nicely.

First panel installed, and the first of the treasures that have been collected mounted.
The fuel pumps look fantastic.

Craig continues to make steady progress and is adding a lot of nice touches. He has added the raised top cover to the radiator, stamped the Serck tag, painted and installed the radiator.

Looking real sweet. That differential looks to good to hide underneath the car.

I've been enjoying this thread immensely. Thanks for the updates and pics.
Looks like a "how to" manual for the accurate Cobra.

Am I the only one who thinks that in a prior life Craig worked at the old Shelby factory in El Segundo?

It's nice to dig through all the boxes (20+)of parts Kevin has spent years putting together and finally getting to use them as intended.

The front end going together nicely, all new bearings seals etc,
