    Default Update on my 80 Cobra

    Iím excited my motor from MPS came today http://mpsautosalvage.com/sunshop/
    Pretty much a rebuilt 302 with GT 40 heads. I have also secured a T5, 8.8 rear, 87 & up front suspension with brakes from Out to Pasture Pony Parts He was also able to help me with the hard to find dash.

    Looking good Mike, are you going to keep the drums or upgrade to disc?

    Its amazing what a little bit of time and paint can do for some parts, looking like a solid build.

    Have you painted interior parts before this project?
    Just curious as to the life of a painted interior part, I have a dash that I want to use in my project but would have to paint it.
    I have a black dash out of an older model but like the new design better, just would like to do it once.

    Good to hear, I have the interior paint from LMR waiting to apply, just wanted to hear from someone who had used it before.
