When I bought her she had a bump at the rear left and some other minor damage. Her stripe was sommer a chrome vinyl sticker.
I always wanted a blue Cobra, thus with the damage and stripe it was an easy decision to have her completely repainted. This one I had repainted in Boksburg before I shipped her down because I know an excellent panel beater up north.
Manny at Dent Doctor Boksburg did an absolutely stunning job with the paint work. Unlike most other panel beaters, he has a part of his workshop which only caters for vehicle projects. He does it the right way, let the paint settle before final coats, thus the repaint job is a 3 month project, but is well worth the wait.
I have chosen a blue which I like and it turned out to be a Porche Blue. They did the stripe for me in pearl white and the stripe is flush with the blue.
I have rebuilt the dash for obvious reasons. Used the correct Smiths guages for the dash.
Also had to fix various oil leaks. Most common oil leak on a Chevy v8 normally is the stupid cork gaskets they use on the tappet covers. It is now standard practise when I get a Chevy v8 to replace the tappet cover gaskets with rubber or silicon gaskets. If need be I also replace the sump gasket with a proper silicone sump gasket.
She had brand new Edelbrock carb on, which I kept for now and she came with nice bling on the engine.
I did however change the original rockers with roller rockers.
