Default Long overdue update...

I purchased a 4 post lift to add parking space and make my build easier. The Cobra will be stored off site and I'll be able to move the "D" up and down to access the build better.



Side view: Yes, I'm a HUGE fan of side pipes! Ford 8.8 rear end w/ 4.10 gears. The rear suspension is Factory Five Racing's 3 link



Better view of the rear end...



Here's the heart of the build, Ford Small Block 302 from an '00 Ford Explorer SUV. This is what will drive the Jaguar purist crazy. Simple cam change and valve spring upgrade will net 300+ HP. Personally, let 'em pound salt, I have less the 1K in the entire drivetrain.



Dash board: Built from a combination of a bunch of different gauge types. Some Alfa Romeo Jeager, ELING speedo & tach



I'll post more as time allows, I need to finish the final wiring and get the hood hinges figures out.
