|#5: October 25th, 2009 - Disassembling the Body, Engine Compartment and Interior... |
Next on the list is the disassembly of the Cobra. All the remaining under hood components, the front suspension, the body parts and all the interior and wiring.
What did I find? The dash was in good shape. The heater core was leaking.
The radiator support is bent on the bottom. I tried to straighten it, but I think I will ultimately be replacing it.
All the parts have been put in my attic for storage and some replacement parts have been acquired. A new wiring harness for the engine and CCRM came from eBay. The correct Mach 460 stereo-cassette and CD player were also acquired from eBay.
With the interior out, I can really see all the messed-up area on the floor and other damage. When I removed the B-pillar trim, I found out the B-pillar had also been replaced because it had a shipping tag still attached that showed it was sent to a Ford Dealer in Virginia in 1997. Now we know that the car was wrecked back then and the B-pillar, door, rocker panel and floor were all replaced. Oh, and the door was replaced with a used green one that was re-painted.
