    Those look great on your '96 Cobra, Bruce. Always been one of my favorite wheels on that platform.

    New headlights and turn signals. Eagle Eyes brand but sold under Dorman. LMR sells the TYC brand IIRC, but both are equally not as good as oem. Unfortunately, that's all there is.

    Will upload a pic when I get home, site not cooperating.

    DEPO were the best, but are hard to find now.
    I have 1 spare DEPO headlight but not a pair.

    Anyone know best method to separate the lenses from the housings? Just did the exterior restoration to the outer headlight lens last night with 3 stage wet sanding and polish, but the interior of lens needs work...

    I haven't been pleased with coolant temps lately so I put in a fluidyne 3 row radiator, new thermostat, and a 16 inch fan. So far temps have been at least 20 degrees cooler compared to the mishimoto the fluidyne replaced.

    Cruising temps are now 180 vs the 200 it was.
    Letting it idle temps could get up to 220-225 and now it's a slow creep up to 200-205 depending on how long I just let her sit.

    Happy so far.

    When I asked my builder which radiator to buy, he told me buy anything but the Mishimoto.
    He referred me to Fluidyne, Champion, and I forget the other name but they were custom made per order.
    I ended up with a 3 row Champion and much like you I saw lower temps. I had an OEM style radiator in there originally though. My temps went from 214ish to 185ish.

    I think for a stockish car the mishi wouldn't be too bad of a replacement. The real test of this new unit will be this summer with the a/c running.

    I think he was referring to the build quality of the Mishimoto.

    Gotcha, I think I put mine on about 3 years ago and it's held up fine but this summer saw higher temps than normal. Instead of changing one or two things I just changed the major three components and called it a day.
