    Hi all I’ve had 4 other mustangs and this is my 5th. My first terminator and vert. I’ve been a part of the group since 2012 from my 12 gt500. I picked up a 23k mile SB vert from NY. It’s a nice car I just hope I made the right decision there’s so many cobras and other cars out there. I want mine to be one of the nicest terminators so I’m going to try to get there. It’s close just needs a few things and finishing touches to complete the build. It’s a great starting point. It runs really strong (690whp) and no issues so I’m very happy with that. Does anyone have any advice on what else I should do or that all cobras should have done that I don’t have so I can get it taken care of? Thanks everyone.

    I like it minus the black wheels. SB really pops with bright wheels, black ones dull out the overall look IMO.
    Enjoy it! Car looks clean af.

    They were chrome but they were pitting so the previous owner plastidpped them . I don’t prefer them either. I’m getting ready to place my order for xt005r in gunmetal or sve series 2 chrome. I got back n forth. Think I’m leaning on cosmis though cuz gunmetal finish isn’t as popular. Thanks appreciate your feedback. Yours is I like it a lot and those wheels are different too.

    Heck yes. That was a smart move by the previous owner to get the look & save the wheels with plastidip. All the look, low cost & saved a set of wheels.
    Good luck on the new choice. Or, just rock these wheels for awhile while you get used to the car.
    SB Verts are candy to my eyes!

    Ok I just slowed down & re-read the mod list on this car. This thing has it going on!
    Make sure the tune & fuel is good and hang on. Damn.

    Congratulations! That is one nicely modded Terminator. You definitely went for the throat. LOL.

    I agree about the wheels advice. You could use those coated wheels for awhile before upgrading, or upgrade now with the wheel you really want and either save the black ones for future use or sell them.

    Enjoy your "new" Cobra!
