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 will add therest when i down load them
Last night i decided to start cleaning up some of the parts I have a KBS Coatings kit both the Frame Coater & The All in One Chassis Kit.
The product
Stir Sticks
Aqua Clean
Rust Blaster
Rust Seal
Black Top Top Coat

First I cleaned all of the parts with a whire wheel or brush

Then used Aqua clean on them to degrease etc.

Then used rust blast This step leaves a zinc coating to fight rust

Now after rinceing and drying I can coat them tonight.

Another cool thing I noticed was the V8 stamp on the part.

So as promised pics of the horrible fate of the Cobra II.
Minus the roof, cowl, and everything else.

Inside firewall to A pillar area, horrible patch job big gap filled with metal.

Same area outside of the car

Same area drivers side

Subframe to fire wall, look close you can see the gap not welded, and it got worse as it curved twards the floor.

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.
