i have got the handbrake all mounted and working as well as started to put the insulation into the cabin area . another job crossed off the whiteboard next is the battery mount still deciding if i should mount it under the dash as per the built manual or behind the passengers seat . will bolt the seat and roll bar in and see what room there is that may be the deciding factor .
then will mount the wiper motor in place and next will be the engine and box going in ..
getting there bit by bit .

ok i had a re think on the handbrake and have mounted it on the top of the trans tunnel...for a couple of reasons 1 i have to raise the trans tunnel to accommodate the auto shifter set up and when thats raised it will be harder to lean over to reach the handbrake lever.i used the handbrake cables from the ve commodore i got the engine and g\box from credit goes to sam for showing me how he did his :-)
2 i prefer it on the top i know it's not correct as per a original cobra but heck neither is the LS engine lol... the other thing ive done is put some pinchweld on places where the body will sit . getting there bit by bit .

All the nutserts that are in my chassis. I have put two small TIG tacks on them. Just in case they decide to spin, years down the track when the bolt has corroded up a bit.

Actually, correct location for the handbrake is on the RHS of the tunnel (for both LHD and RHD originals), but can't argue against your logic there Deano

Cheers,
Glen

not much new to report on the actual built as ive been flat out with the race car and doing some weekends away racing the cobra has taking a back seat for a while .
however my application to build a icv and vin number has been supplied from the dept of road transport and at a quick glance nothing out of the ordinary from what i can see. i will have a more in depth read of it later tonight
cheers dean

You have your vin number already? That means you have one year to finish it or you have to apply again. Mine is booked in for the final inspection on wednesday. Do you know what to expect? It's a 80 minute inspection. I have a brake bias adjuster knob under the dash, it's one thing I know they might not like.

It's no big deal at all. I have renewed mine twice now, and it's just a matter of ringing Regency Park, and they do it over the phone. You don't have to reapply....it's just a renewal.

Cheers,
Glen

edit: ....and it doesn't cost anything

Silly thing that when you have the engine number checked, then they give you 3 months until you have to get that checked again. So tomorrow I have to get the engine number checked again in a different place, put it back on the trailer and drive it around the corner to the main inspection place. And you can't book the Engine number inspection, so you don't know how long you might have to wait for that.
JD
P.S. Wish me luck.
