Yeah, some of us are still here...with fingers crossed.
Good pics. Keep them coming.
Incidentally, Wil Escabache (IC Cars) was at one of our club meetings recently.

Cheers

Are you able to go to "FORUMS", select the appropriate forum (eg "COBRA BUILD LOGS") and then hit on "NEW THREAD"?

Hi Glen,
I had a visit from Wil and his son Josh a couple of weeks ago, he has moved from Kangaroo Island and now lives 30 minutes from me. Would of made it easier for me to pick up my kit if he had of moved 14 months ago...
How is your build progressing?

Thanks guys, will certainly try to keep adding posts of my build. This forum is such a fantastic resource of info and ideas. There hasn't been much action on here of late so i have actually been reading all the posts from the very beginning it is incredible the info on here. Last night i was fitting new clutch to my motor and could not find the clutch bolt torque settings, but sure enough it was posted on here.

Thanks Bender,
I had to come up with something because I only have one half of a double garage to work with. Wife's car has to be in other half. This way can roll body to other side while I work on chassis, means have to clean up all the time but is what it is.
Any pics on your build and where you are up to with it?

I bought the car as a roller but have stripped most of the suspension. Most has been zinc plated that can cause embrittlement. I have been collecting most of the parts I need. It will be a 347 windsor with Tremec 6spd manual. Its a gforce car from WA. I have an lsd for the jag rear, seats steering wheel, gauges, wheels and tyres. Most parts to complete. It has sat for a few years due to work. Just about to get back into it. I will start a build thread shortly . Once I get it cleared so I can start work on it.

Hi All,
Engine bay pretty well finished, all brake, clutch, fuel and power steering lines done. Radiator/cooling system, air intake done and battery installed. All fluids in. Next job is to modify(again) rear aluminium panel to give more clearance for larger rear wheels/tyres. I changed original manufacturers design to give more room in cab and use 16" wheels, i am now going to run 17's, i can fit them on but not enough clearance.

As alot of you guys would know it's alot of 2 steps forward and another 1 back, at least i have plenty of time with current isolation rules.

After that i will start on electrics, put some 98 in the tank and see what happens...

Nice compromise between historic chassis and new components. What suspension parts are those?

Coil overs are all Gaz Shocks from V &A Spider I in Melbourne.

I to are having A Lot of problems logging into site.
