I'l have to get a set.  I did not see them in my pile of parts I've accumlated.

I came up with the header idea after HRM began issuing the kit so the early versions may not include them

Thank you Dann. Itching to paint it but waiting for some better weather here. Been pretty cold and damp here the last few days. I know if I don't wait I will screw up the paint job. It's a 50/50 chance I'll do a good paint job even with ideal conditions. :D

Thanks. Weird thing with the decals is all the photos I see show the King Cobra is in  white. The box top and the kit decals are more of a goldish color. I believe the decals should be white, no ?

I agree. If you look at my first post it shows the lettering is not white but that is not a photo but rather a rendering on the box top.  I do believe they should be white.

The wheels look black in that last photo, no ?  Going to go with silver pipes and full chrome on front. I like those last two pics, I never saw them.  Thanks

wheels are Magnesium, it gets darker with age if they are not polished constantly etc (its actually "corrosion" to an extent).. I actually think it makes a car look meaner with them dark
