Two more updates for my 4-wide Ford AC Cobra 427: SNOT Stripes and a new rear end.
About this creation
When I first saw these SNOT stripes on Starscream Soundwave's 4-wide Viper I knew I had to make some of these for my Cobra, too. The original design of the stripes on a 4-wide is most probably from J K's Zonda and there are some cool instructions made by Loek Marcus how to attach them to a 4-wide. But I had no idea how to put them into my Cobra without messing up the design.
One day I took my notebook on a larger train tour and had a few hours to work on this problem with LDD. I finally found a way to attach the stripes in the front without changing the overall look of the car. And then I had the idea to use slider plates to create an air scoop on top the hood including the stripes.
This is the result: Yes, I really ...
... love ...
... these stripes :-))
And this is how they are done.
The rest of the design didn't change.
So this is V2.1 of my 4-wide LEGO Shelby Ford AC Cobra 427, now with SNOT stripes and air scoop. I hope you like it as much as I do :-))

Update December 9, 2013:
With the new 1x2x2/3 "half bow" parts I had some ideas for new shapes on the Shelby Cobra: Smooth lines on the hood. The thin black stripe had to go in this version, but the SNOT air scoop is still there.
this is fantastic! really good technics, instantly recognizable, one of my most favorite 4-wides of all time. congratulations!
I like it

Holy smoke! This is fantastic! I don't know how I missed it earlier. What an amazingly good representation of the 427 Cobra (my favorite sports car of all time). I have to agree with TheLegoNoitAll -- the hood scoop is incredibly ingenious and is probably the best feature of the MOC.
