Hi All,

The paint is down. I need to help Wayne prep some small pieces that are yet to be finished. After that, all we (Wayne) have to do now is wet sand everything with 600 one last time, give it two more coats of clear and the painting is done.

Right now, I need to go wash off the liquid mask (we coated the engine bay and chassis with a spray on liquid mask to keep any stray overspray off the completed areas of the car).

That is all I got for now.

Hi All,

Don't know if any of you have seen the "Wizards of Winter" video that has been circulating about the net lately, but it is pretty cool. We have loaded a version on the "amusing bits" page of our website. If you get the time you really should check it out.

OBTW, happy holidays to all. Hope that for x-mas you all get the Mustang upgrade you've been dreaming about all year. :-)

A quote from V8TV...

We shot the SN65 today... what a friggin' awesome car. To see this thing in person is just a mind blower. We were extremely honored to have the opportunity to point our camera at the car.

Personally, I think one of the best attributes of this car is that it looks like it was built new on a Ford production line. The quaility is 1st rate. There is no visible structural transition between the '65 and the Cobra. Bob and Wayne are really doing an incredible job. The Cobra dash looks like it was made for the '65 shell, and the use of all the Ford systems makes the car even more unique. I could go on for days.

I'll keep the board posted on when the V8TV episode with this car airs.

Hi All,

Wayne and I have been pretty busy this week. We have been able to work on the car a little, but other maters have been putting demands on our time. :-(

Even so, Wayne has wet sanded and applied the final coat of clear to the doors.

I have been working on installing the interior. I have fit the lower rear interior panels. I cannot fit the upper vent panels until the outside vent assemblies are installed. I have wired up the door ajar switches (pretty cool, they work exactly as the 03 setup with the delay on the drivers side. When you open the drivers door the interior lights don't go off until you close the door, insert and turn the key). I have installed the new carpet and fit the seats (including wiring them up). It is interesting to note that the passenger side is different from the drivers side. This is something that I never really paid attention to. That being the case, I have to relocate the passenger side seat mounting bracket about one inch. This will move the seat a bit closer to the center console giving the passenger a bit more shoulder clearance on the door side. I have the headliner hung, but not glued yet and I have mounted the subwoofer.

Once Wayne gives me the go-a-head on mounting the doors, I will be able to assemble the door internals, locate the window/door lock switches and the speakers.

Tonight is the company X-mass party. I am looking forward to having a good time. As always, I hope the same for you and yours.

Catch ya'll l8r

Hi All,

Wayne made some decent headway on the sanding and buffing of the roof and pillars this weekend. He just has to do a little more buffing and hand glazing and these areas will be done.

I, on the other hand, did nothing exciting save watching the Bears lose to the Steelers. The game may have been disappointing, but it did give me some time to catch up on a few car periodicals. One of the things I noticed is that the fascination with huge diameter rims tucked up as far as possible under the fenders and quarters is still prevalent in the hobby. Fords, Chevys and Mopars alike are all getting the same treatment. This practice is starting to ware a little thin on me. The cars are starting to appear somewhat cartoonish in nature. Also, I do not consider rims over 17" in diameter to be suitable for performance applications. Should not form follow function?

We are currently planning on 17" rims for our project. Personally, I think that these look rather massive on this car and that bumping them up in size would take us away from our overall theme. Even so, people have been dropped me notes saying that the car deserves something a bit larger, say 19's in the front and 20's in the back.

As with everything else on this project, we are going to go counter to the current trend. Hopefully, this decision, as well as all the others we have made, will help bring the car together into a cohesive, fully functioning, reliable, enjoyable to drive, street performance package.

With that said, I have to get back to work. I just went over our check list and we still have a long row to hoe before we are done.

Personally, I would get some chrome 03 Cobra wheels, 17x8 in the fronts and 17x10.5 rears...this would hint to the 03 Cobra underneath while not looking like it just came out of a Puff Daddy video or something. PLEASE NO 20's!!! 19's is the limit, at least for me. But hey, it's your car, do as you see fit...just thought I'd add my 2 cents.

Hi All,

Yesterday we went over our list and prioritized things. Wayne's main focus, as always, will remain on the remaining paint/bodywork. So, unfortunately for him, it will be more of the same. Sand and paint, sand and paint, sand and paint, sand and buff.

For me, it means all things mechanical. yesterday I modified the stamped aluminum sill plates to fit. There was some bending and cutting and some more bending. I will show you some photos when it is time to install them. Also, I had to prepare everything for the windows to go in. That meant that I had to alter (smack with a big MF'n hammer) the angle of the sun visor mounting brackets so that the 03 visors would sit parallel to the windshield opening. Wayne got me started, making sure that I understood the consequences if I missed my mark and hit the roof by accident.

This morning I need to install all the remaining windshield trim retaining clips . A relatively easy task once I locate and drill all the holes. I need to finish this, and get the headliner stretched, so that the glass guy can get the windshields installed.

So, by the end of the day, we should have the headliner and the front and rear glass installed (among a few smaller incidental items).

Catch ya'll l8r

Hi 10th,

It was nice seeing you too, even though we had only a moment to chat.

The party went well. Thans for asking.

We will be planning a get to gether for sometime in Feb. The car will be all done at that point (hopefully I will be correct this time). Also, it will be nice letting you all crawl all over the car. Maybe you can point out an area or two that need attention before we go off to out first big show. :-)
