I've heard Mystic is a PITA to paint. Good luck if you do. I actually thought the number of 98's with Mystic was closer to 600, but I may be wrong.

AFAIK mystic was only on the 96 cobras for the SN-95 bodies. From what I've heard BASF was the only manufacturer of that paint back then and because some of the ingredients used to make that color changing pigment are listed as hazardous materials thru the Nuclear Regulatory Commission you had to have a special licence just to get the paint and had to return any unused portion so it can be destroyed. No wonder that color was a $1500 option back in 96.

Here's more pics I finally got around to taking. The dash and sound system...







The business...





I think I need to change the wires, what ya'll think?



Turns out I don't have coilovers, but you can see the tubular K member...



Subframe connectors...



Drilled and slotted rotors on all 4 corners...



And the reason why I need new rims....



I didn't take pics of the trunk, there's what looks like a homemade shock tower brace. Until I have the title in hand, I'm not going to rush swapping the motor in this, I'll do it as I have a break from the other projects...

She sits, quietly and patiently, just like a good mistress does. Slowly building and collecting parts for upgrades...
