BJ, for what it's worth, here are the switches I'm using....



I think they were around $12-$14 each (bought them a number of years ago).
One thing that makes them look more original is the countersunk straight slotted head screws. If you wanted to add them to your install for appearance, I have boxes full of them. Let me know if you need any freebies....we Aus. FIA guys need to stick together

Cheers,
Glen

Hi Glen
I am using these Narva switches that have a LED in the end.
Thought they may look a little like the radium tipped ones that were in the originals.
I might add the screws for appearance or get some switches off you at a later date if not happy with the look.
Thanks for the offer.



Cheers

Looking great! Nice to see it getting close to coming together. You can almost hear it roar.

Hey, it's starting to look like a Cobra now, Everything good with you? Went to a Auction this weekend to sell my Hot-Rodded Cushman Eagle, At LeMays Museum, Did sell Yea, more Cobra money . But did talk to the owner of another Miles car, in the Museum, his was built as the #98 car too, very, very nice but I would say nothing compared to what your car will be Couldn't remember the builder, but they only built 5 of them. If for some reason, you need to discuss with him, I have a Email for him, He's a SAAC member, but not a Club Cobra member, Cheers Tom.

Looks the goods Brett. Gotta keep the pipes quite enough for Wakefield.

Are you glass packing them or using spirals?

Oh, you'd be surprised at how much noise that little 289 can make. I have to wear earplugs underneath my helmet when racing as getting on it in 2nd gear hurts my ears.

Very happy to see that you stuck with this project B.J...
It will be very special, once she's all painted, and finished off.
Great stuff !!

Cheers,
Warren

That used to be the practice with all the gauges ... have the needle pointing vertical at the normal running conditions and if one wasn't vertical there was something wrong ... look harder at the gauge. Oil pressure and Water temp was always "tilted"
