I finally got my Cobra back from the body shop today. It was in a pretty bad accident in January. I'm glad I went with the complete repaint. Fresh Laser Red looks awesome! I worked a deal with the insurance company. It damaged the stock catalytic converters...it was cheaper to go aftermarket...so it's now sporting a BBK X-pipe with high flow converters and 2-chamber flowmasters with stainless tips. It sounds bad ass and runs good. The burn out marks in front of house are proof of it!

Sweet. Laser Red is a hard color to match. The body shop I went to did a good job on mine. He told me the Laser Red is a 3 stage painting process.

The waiting is always the hardest part. Mine was only gone for 5 1/2 weeks and I have to go look at it every chance I get. Good to hear it worked out for you.
