      Unfortunately, we were unable to upgrade the board software due to some technical difficulties. We will try again once we get the problems worked out.

Vintage Cobra 427 Build

Started this old kit today.  Unwrapped original plastic.  Haven't done that before.  This kit is VERY well made and the parts fit perfectly.  Hardly any trimming needed either. Love these old kits before they all went to China.

Got it from a Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes flyer, believe it or not!  One of the few things I've ever ordered from them that is useful!

I remember the headers and side pipes did not line up perfectly.

Exactly.  And the interior tub didn't fit all the way up, so I had to Dremel it and the frame to get it to fit.  Turned out pretty nice, though.  90% done here.  I ordered Guardian Blue and this is what the company sent me.  Not as dark but I like it.  I decided to go without the stripes.
