ExPeNsIvE HoBbY Thank you guys! Glad you all like her!

The top is from a company called "Smoothline" and it's their "Cobra" top. Much better looking than the "Daytona" top which kind of mixes a New Edge and S197 together. The Cobra model looks more like the '95 factory ford removable hardtop.

The cage kit came from Chris Alstons Chassisworks out of Sacramento Ca. It's basically their 10pt 8.50et cage with some extra bars added, and custom ordered to size. They give you the specs for a template and you make your measurements from there.

The front bars however fit like crap after going through 3 different sets so I finally made the front set on my own from the same material and they ended up tucking against the A pillars and firewall much tighter. Then they were tig welded to the main hoop, and the floor plates were MIG welded in.

Now all that's left really is the Engine/Trans build, fuel system change to E85, and POSSIBLY doing a backhalf and tubs so I can fit some bigger rubber out back because I don't think the tire size I'm running now is going to like 1000+whp lol

Let's just say ~1300+hp and most likely a Garrett GTX4718R on full E85 is in its immediate future lol
