Sorry Dave......
I've wanted to stay out of this.. but you are way out of order here.
I didn't realise what you had written on your profile until David STEAN mentioned it.
After ongoing arguments about special "Super Snake" mods, and getting payments, you told AP to "stick the car up your ar** and give me my money back"
Sold it and gave you your full refund as soon as AP got payment from new owner.
I think you thought AP would put up with the rant and wouldn't sell the kit.
The bully ing just didn't work this time mate.
I'm DEFINITELY not wanting to get involved in any ongoing issues or arguments... but in this case, I felt you were just remembering what happened in a completely different way than how I remembered it.
Be fair mate.
Cheers Warren

Not at all...
I just happen to know that this one wasn't as stated...
Not getting into an argument with you Dave( Damage)...
It just seemed unfair to watch someone getting a kicking for something that didn't happen.
Cheers

You said the same when it was me but you weren't around then so for all I know this could be the same.

All I know is that anything that is said in the negative about AP on a thread and it gets shut down. That's all I was saying.

I’m new to the forum and wanted to share my ICCARS Cabra build.

I purchased a locally built ICCARS cobra kit from Kangaroo Island South Australia. The kit runs a space frame style chassis with a bonded fibreglass body.

The chassis was constructed to fit a modular 5.4L, 4 speed auto, triangulated 4 bar 9” rear with 20”x 16” deep dish wheels.......Based on a scale model “Big time models” which was given to me years ago....When i first ran it past Wil from ICCARS his first answer was “They won’t fit” and so was his second and third answer ....however backwards and forwards with autocad we made it work.

Wil was a super nice guy and very accommodating.....Well worth a look at these guys.

Anyway I’m glad to part of the cobra family.....

Thanks Anthony

Welcome Anthony!
And may I say what a great name you have.
I've never met Will nor seen one of his cars up close and personal (photos only).
Well done on joining the family, and best wishes with your car.
I'd love to see pics and a thread all in due time of course.

Safe motoring.

Anthony, Welcome to the mad house.
However, there is a rule around here that we all enforce and it is : Pics or it didn't happen.
That's pics of your car of course .... we sure don't want any pics of Wil

Never get anything from Pace?

I guess that's why there are absolutely no registered Pace Cobras driving around.......

Just saying...

Where are you sourcing your information to make this statement from? Have a look at paintwerks build thread and the last few photos of his top quality build. His Pace build is rego'd. There are several others on this site as well

Hey Anthony,

welcome aboard mate and thanks for the kind words; although I'm not sure who's steering the ship here, it is a great place to talk, learn & network with like minded folk.

Building your Cobra was a first for any Cobra ever with that wheel package so I was glad to be part of that process - only thing now is that I have two guys lined up for the same set up, so might have to hire your services to consult on those builds lol.

Look forward to your input here mate, as you have a wealth of knowledge and a Ton of other cars and projects on the go... You will have to do your GT40 thread if you can make time.

Cheers

Bloody hell, I just realised half the forum members are called 'Dave'. No wonder I kept getting confused.
