Looking good there Brett. Cobra Nats (2 x AP FIAs) next year?


BJ's Snake 07-16-2016 02:48 AM

For sure Glen, that's the plan.
I was hoping to see yours painted when I was there but alas....


xb-60 07-18-2016 02:54 AM

Missed by that much (well, a couple of days).
I hear that AP FIA #3 is on the go. This might be the start of something big here...?


BJ's Snake 07-23-2016 01:06 AM

So it Begins
And away we go...
Rod ends installed.

Next was to change the original bushings in the diff to Neoprene

Brackets to chassis

With big brother reminding me of the difference between the old way of scouring wrecking yards for parts against all brand new with everything going together so easily. Good job AP.

Good stuff, another build thread.

BJ's Snake 07-30-2016 01:00 AM

Ticking along nicely this week putting suspension parts together.

Today was cutting out for pedal box.

Trial fit.

Getting late.

Trying to do as much as possible with the body on as room in the garage is an issue at the moment. Hoist shortly I think.**)

BJ's Snake 07-31-2016 01:19 AM

Bit more.
Steering rack in, front uprights in, brake and clutch lines started.
such a pleasure to work with new parts!

Are Pace able to supply the FIA style wheels to match?


Here is what they are supplying Mike.


Aussie Mike 07-31-2016 04:23 AM

Very nice. They look great!

Gav 07-31-2016 04:25 AM

**** they look good!

Setting an absolute cracking pace there Brett, looks fantastic. Love the wheels.

Can't believe you're running out of room in the cavern. The truck might have to live out in the frost for a while.

Nice work Pace people. Authenticity is critical in a build of this nature.

Ha Ha, see what you did there Dave....

The kids cars will go outside before my truck does and that is a debate we are having at the moment!

We will work out a garage run soon to have a look see if you like.

Looks awesome BJ. Those wheels are beautiful. Are they vintage Wheels?

Curious why Pace don't do the pedal box cut out in house? Im assuming all the chassis components are laser\water cut so would think it would be an easier job to do it then.

BJ's Snake 07-31-2016 05:42 PM

Andrew, I think they are Trigo wheels mate. En route from the Gold Coast at the moment.
I too wonder why they don't do the cutout as they use the same pedal box across the range.
It's not a hard job to do anyway, measure twice, cut once.....


leroy17 07-31-2016 05:46 PM

Sooo much alloy..... so so cool.

Wheels look awesome, the raw look in the centre just sets these off well.

With regards to the pedal box and no cutout, perhaps this is so Pace builders just experience a little bit of dirty work on what appears to be absouletly pristine components/parts/chassis supplied.

BJ looks like you and AP are both progressing very quickly. Thumbs up.
