Just got back my stang with Cobra R deep dish rims, powdercoated brake calipers, Decelerotors, and braided brake lines. I had the center caps made but am thinking about going with chrome caps instead of the cobra. What do you guys think???

Great looking car! I hate to say it, take it for what it's worth, but I'd be more inclined to go with the chrome center caps...hope that doesn't offend.

No offense taken at all appreciate you being straight forward.

I would have liked to have went with the 14" rotors the baer eradispeed plus 2 but the size I don't think could have fit my 18" rims. Plus the cost of the eradispeed for both front and back would have cost me 1000.00 where the decelerators cost me 450.00. Looking at the size it is 12.4 inches vs. 14 inches which corresponds to about 3/4" each side. The decelerators are OEM size so I just replaced my original with drilled and slotted. But I did go with the front decelerators put on both back and front to keep them the same size.

What do you think of the blue powder coat? I use blue LED's on some of my lighting.

My first car was a black Ford (1949, in 1953). I did the interior in blue, painted the wheels blue. Yes I like the blue on a black car. I'd even be tempted to do the stripes in blue, if I were going to do stripes.

Nice accents, those calipers.

If I ever have problems with the silver stripes I think I will have them painted on in blue.

Thanks. I went with the same blue as my blue LED's.

I think it looks awesome. And don't mind the cobra centercaps either. Can't you get the snake in different colors? Maybe a blue to match the calipers?
