Default WTB: 03/04 Cobra 13" front brakes and spindles

I'm going to be upgrading to 5 lugs on the Cobra and would much rather find a setup off an 03/04 Cobra instead of the remodel SVE versions they sell at latemodel restoration....

So COBRA labeled calipers, brackets, rotors, and spindles if possible...

Anyone happen to have anything laying around before I start searching all around the web?

I have a freshly rebuilt set of OEM 03/04 calipers and brackets that I painted black ("Cobra" in silver) with G2 caliper paint. Can get pics tomorrow.

All that is needed now is the calipers and brackets to bolt them to. Ordered a bunch of the other parts already.

Not sure if you got ahold of Hans but he has stock piles of extra cobra parts. I bet he has a few complete front brake assemblies...

Might be an option.... As much as I want the ones that say Cobra on them I can also use the ones off a Mach1, I guess they were the same just without the lettering...

The price some people are asking is absolutely nuts for these calipers... Getting remanufactured MACH 1 ones and then having them powdercoated could still be a ton less than some of the numbers I'm seeing.

Waiting to hear from SHOmuff first, and then will go from there.

Yeah, I was farting around ebay looking at some the 03/04 parts. Everybody is asking a ton of cash for the parts. I guess they don't make them anymore?

Nothing is really off the table, just trying to not get too crazy with it otherwise I'd just buy a huge Baer kit and call it a day.

Nope. They have the SVE versions which work great but I'd rather the ones that say Cobra or the Mach1 versions that are plain... I guess some people are getting lucky getting rebuilt calipers and getting the COBRA or BAER versions but they're hit or miss.
