As to colour?So I went to see the progress on the car this weekend, not much has changed externally but it now has a very nice custom bonnet mechanism for lifting the front up. This should hopefully mean we don't need the hole in the front of the grill like most Kobra's have.
Also got some new filler on the old wing mirror mounting points.
Lastly the side exhausts have a nice bracket on them which should hold them in place with minimal visible mounting points.

So looking at the side profile, I think it needs bigger wheels and lowering personally. The back wheels especially don't fill the arch as I would like but maybe that would look better once lowered.
Also check out those panel gaps, really good compared to some others I have seen.
Really impressive work, and its finally booked in for paint in 3 weeks! Now anyone got any views on what colour it should be......?
Currently sitting on Calibre vintage 17's. I think they are too small personally but I love the style of them.What are your current wheel and tyre sizes? You might be able to go a bit in size on the rears but not so much to affect geometry and speedometer accuracy.
I really like the 17” calibres and tempted to put them on mine. You could look at keeping the wheels but just putting bigger rubber on. What size tyres you on currently and what width wheels in J ?Currently sitting on Calibre vintage 17's. I think they are too small personally but I love the style of them.

I'm still up in the air about the final wheels. REALLY want 18" halibands but it might be a step too far financially I've found another Kobra which uses them and they look so awesome.

I've already got some 19" BBS LM's sitting around as well, but for me I think they look too modern
