So it has been awhile, I travel alot for work and am rarely home. Getting ready to be gone for another 6 weeks starting next week.
Well I have a ton of pics ( just have to get them off the camera)of what the Cobra II looked like when we started cutting it up for parts and it was NOT good. I felt bad that I had let lori do a few 100+ mph rips down the road in it. The drivers sub frame was not even welded to the firewall if that gives you an idea. and the places that the previous person patched had lots of rust left under it.
Here i am drilling spot weldsto get the cowl off in one piece.

I must say this is really the first time I have sat down and really looked hard at the Mustang II's. They were not the best years for the Mustang so I always wrote them off. But this thread has changed my mind, doing it right like you're doing using real steel from another Mustang II. Who knows I may look at getting one in the future once I get my 72 Mach done.
