I just noticed the rear trunk decor panel. Don't see too many of these, looks nice. I had one for a project that never happened, I was able to sell it real fast.

Thanks guys!

Getting started on installing some of the bits and pieces tomorrow..

Not sure where to start, but I guess I'll have to finish the seat install first of all

A bit of a special piece here... I thought my parts car had a normal cobra..

Appears it's apparently a hirsch/Troll R part!

Notice the writing TB2810 on the pipe? Corresponds with the TB2810 turbo utilized on the troll R and the cobra isn't a standard saab part with a saab part number

Had some fitment issues with the Hirsch cobra and the wastegate bracket.. It wouldn't hit the angle needed to fit with the intake and other bits.

Cut the cast iron part where the bolt threads in on the turbo about 4mm down, cut the bracket in a suitable place and offset the cut off part below the original bracket to make more room, then welded it in place and powder coated it black.

Also powder coated the wastegate actuator housing (of course it was disassembled and taken apart first) to make it less "my car is tuned and illegal" coloured Turbo now looks kinda stockish and cobra fits like a sharm (although it's a tight fit)
