Expected to be home by now but hit every bit of traffic on the way!
Agreed a price with chris yesterday and picked it up this morning.....

Good start, what colour will it be?

Danny_HUFC 19th September 2014 20:59

Colour will be matt black, or maybe matt blue. Il be going for the modern look with carbon fiber bits and bobs and some new style alloys.

Danny_HUFC 19th September 2014 21:05

Some thing along these lines...

How about having it Wrapped in Carbon Fibre effect body wrap !

redratbike 20th September 2014 07:27

did you sell the 250?

Danny_HUFC 20th September 2014 07:27

The front lip spoiler will most likely be carbon fiber but ive seen too many wraped cars look sh!te, peeling etc. most of the chrome bits you see on the car will be geting hydro-dipped in carbon fiber pattern aswell. Ive seen some work done by these http://www.hydro-graffix.co.uk and it looks spot on.

Danny_HUFC 20th September 2014 11:25

I bought a 3 series last week with these alloys on....

Theyr 18" with wider rears, I thought they would look nice on a modern look cobra but Im now thinking the bigger, the better!

I have a set of 20" insignia alloys sat in the garage il try on tomorow a d see how they fit....

Evening Danny i somehow assumed you would be using up the "Carousel Red":wave: Geoff .

Danny_HUFC 20th September 2014 21:53

geoff, if i take too much of that paint home then my gaffer may notice....

Danny_HUFC 26th September 2014 12:22

Does anyone know of a car that has a similar front bumper to this..
http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/...ps0rcym35h.jpg

ie. the holes on either side with the fins through?

Even if its somewhere near or similar look. I can then buy a bumper from said car and hopfuly cut the bits out and get them grafted on the front of my cobra?

Any help is appreciated even if you think a certain bumper doesnt look the same but would look better!

fatbloke 26th September 2014 12:45

Perhaps not the most helpful post Danny but you can get a rear diffuser on eBay

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Universal-...item5405caf869

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wide-Unive...item3a97bd14fe

and there are various universal front splitters might you might be able to adapt.

oxford1360 26th September 2014 14:39

What about this for the front -

Danny_HUFC 26th September 2014 15:26

Thanks fatbloke, but i have the rear sorted (i think!) with chris' suggestion with the fiesta diffuser...

http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=250690070721
