CUSTOM AC Cobra completed!!!

As you saw in my last post I started a custom AC Cobra build to showcase more of the pure competition car style. I finished it yesterday and couldn't be happier with how it turned out!

After lowering the car via spacers and axle tubes I moved onto bodywork. I smoothed what I could and filled in the gap from the missing windshield.

My original plan was to paint it white but I decided to give a nod to the cars British roots and do a nice dark green like BRG.
