So I made a few changes before the FFF Knotts 2014 show. Got my 3rd set of TF wheels, sold the PFab radiator tank and Lethal Performance IC tank, and had the brake calipers done in candy copper with snake pattern hydrodip along with some new Rotorpros rotors.

Here's a few pics…enjoy!

I love how clean the car looks. I always wanted a silver couple and love the look of silver wheels on a silver car.

That looks stunning. Surprisingly I'm a big fan of the calipers... I just wish you would've gotten a less busy wheel to show off more of those dipped calipers. Looks great nonetheless.

Calipers look SICK, I would go ahead and carry that same pattern/dip on to the Valve Covers and interior pieces.

What brake rotors are those?

Thanks so much for the positive comments! I was really on the edge on the color choice for the calipers. They were originally supposedly to be just a candy copper powder coat but decided to add the snake pattern hydrodip to tone down the color. It turned out great! Not too flashy and really unnoticeable unless you really look. Supposedly, these are the first in that color/hydrodip pattern combo. During the show I watched a few people walk by and then double-take after the light hit it from their perspective. I believe my old TF wheels (Victorys) would've showed more of the calipers but I'm totally happy with the way the combo turned out.

BIG THANKS to Steve @ TF for everything he's done to help get my Cobra where it's at! Working with me on all the little issues I rant about - LMAO! Also to Brian @ The Powder House Coatings in NorCal for a great job on the calipers. You were right! The combo turned out wicked!

That is in the future. I still have to figure out how to come up with a combo that will not be too much. Rotors are from Rotorpros. The car is mainly driven when I have time (rarely - LOL!) so I wasn't too worried about issues with drilled rotors.

The caliper paint doesn't have problems with heat? Looks awesome.

They're powder coated. I've read issues about powder coating causing heating issues but I doubt I'll have them with the way I drive the Cobra.
