Watts Linkage

Nick, After years of talking about it, I finally added the Watts Link to my Contemporary. I should have done it years ago when I started talking about it. All of the shimmy in the rear end is gone. With the big FE there is a lot of torque and the car would run rough if I jumped on it hard. Now I jump and there is no sway, shimmy or rough running. It just goes. Good job Mate. Wasn't too difficult to install after we figured out what was different. Thanks for another great product. Dan

ACTON Exhaust

ACTON is a First Class operation all the way. Nick is a wealth of knowledge and very accessible to assist you even as busy as he is. I recently bought a full 427 Cobra undercar exhaust system from ACTON and as complicated as it is, it fit like a glove. Oh, Yes, and Bonni is a sweetheart on the phone, very enjoyable to work with. Thank You Two!! George Lyons Erie, PA

Custom Steering Column

I have a Factory Five Mk1 Cobra. I asked Nick to make a steering shaft to fit both my Mk1 and the original style Cobra steering wheel boss and turn signal switch. I sent him basic measurements, and what I received back was a work of art! I cannot wait to install this!! Working with both Nick and Bonni was a pleasure. They are both willing to help with our cars any way they can, and they're just good people! Thank you Nick and Bonni.

Acton Custom Best Of The Best

I trailered my 1991 427FE Contemporary Cobra to NH to have Nick install a watts linkage of his own design. Nick and Bonni are amazing and very gracious people with a phenomenal knowledge of Cobra's. The install went great and while looking my car over Nick didn't miss a beat. Quite a few other issues were discovered and corrected by Nick while I was there. When we were finished, I tested out the car and it performed flawlessly. The wheel hop, shake and trounce that I had been experiencing were virtually eliminated during a few good hard launches and it felt like a different car. I'm quite particular with my cars and pleased to say that Nick possesses all the knowledge and experience that I look for when having my Cobra worked on. Thanks Nick and Bonni! Charlie Malo
