Yes my Harrison is Tony Os old one when I got it it had suffered from complete neglect from the guy who had bought it from tony. I spent a lot of time detailing the engine bay and it now sports full stainless braid and a host of other new bits and pieces.

Sounds good David - I'm sure everyone is keen to see some photos when you start a new For Sale thread on here.
Last question here so that I don't hijack Brad's thread anymore; is your cammer the one that Darren Friedman had in his Kirkham flip-top Cobra before he sent it to Keith Craft to freshen up and sell?

Hey Damage

The Cammer at Absolute Pace is generating a lot of interest so would you mind if I posted some photos of the beautiful beast of an engine when i go next week.

I was in awe of the injection trumpets they are a work of art.

If you don't want photos then please let me know via a post.

Cheers

Brad

Thanks Brad...

How is it going?

Is that insulation just cut to shape and glued on, or self-adhesive?

How did you go with bending the brake lines?

It must be good doing all this work at AP HQ...

Tony

Tony, Brad is certainly enjoying the use of one of our hoists. He is doing a great job.

Insulation is cut to shape and glued with hi-temp silicone, then silicone strip is run around the sides of material to protect edges from lifting/fraying.

Hmm, bending brake lines??? I reckon Brad is way too smart for that. He just used our brake kit. It contains CNC pre-bent and terminated stainless hard brake lines with stainless saddles. Braided flexible brake hoses mounted to chassis with stainless mounts & stainless spring clips. Did I say "stainless" way too many times there...

Darryl, I had better take some spy shots for you as Brad won't be back until Friday.

Mmmm, stainless... You did not say it too many times Craig...

Pre-bent is cool too.

Did you say the comprehensive kit comes with a free hoist??

If only I could get some Bruce Springsteen tickets I would be heading back up that way Craig! Bloody things sold out in 1 minute flat!!

Nice try. Free use of a hoist.

You just need to get your deposit in soon to lock in current pricing and to get the kit when you want it. You know you want to.

No Bruce, that's a bummer.

Default Tuesdays Progress



Engine Flywheel all Torqued up



Pedal Box all Marked out will be finished on friday



Fuel & Brake lines finished Under the car



Rear Brake Lines also Finished



Starting to look like a COBRA



Side Vents and Side Pipes holes are all finished

The Jig Saw is coming together I am really pleased.

A big thank you to Craig , Don , Wayne , Rob , Angus , Steve , and Greg for all their expertise and help.

It has made the build so much more enjoyable and much less frustrating.

I can't wait to go for a drive.

Cheers

Brad

The dash is very close to being installed as is the radiator.
