under the Cobra R hood

A Ford Racing OEM Hood,
which has been filled and finished by hand,
with duel slots cut in the cowl of hood.
Displays an airbrushed mural of
an enormous Purple, Silver and Black Cobra.
"Bad Snake" is the ruler of the mountain range that lie beneath him.
Set on a blue mist backdrop, with two nearby moons.

(I really wanted a pretty girl airbrushed under the hood)

topside of the Cobra R hood

Front center third of rise is black,
breaking into two 12" stripes.
Airbrushed within the black is an iridescent
open mouthed Cobra searching for his prey in the night.

over the Roof

The 12" stripes continue as if flowing
over the peaks and through the mountain passageways.
The iridescent body of the Cobra
barely visible in the Blue Pearl light of the moons.

With the correct sunlight's angle, the stripes Blue Pearl appears!


down to the Rear Deck Lid and around the Wing

So massive is the body of Bad Snake that he covers
an entire mountain range.
Down in this valley his gigantic tail, hardly visable wraps around
the Tail Wing, known to all as the, Spoiler.
Coming to rest just below the Wing and
surrounding the high center brake light.
The 12" stripes close together, completing the colossal reptile.



bordered by a 1/8" Black Pin Striping

Donít think for one moment,
Itís going to hold that huge serpent,
Although it does tie him in with his best friend
The Crystal White Stallion know to all as Mustang.

And that my children is why today we have the
