Default Nearly Finished

After 3 years of late nights and weekends, my Cobra build is very close to being completed.

Very cool car, that dashpad is interesting. Did you make that?

Great progress Richard, and agreed - a cool car
What is left to do for registration compliance ("engineering approval")?

Cheers!
Glen

You took it to a new level
The dash is amazing
The side vents and no bumpers sweet
I’m stealing some of those details

Thanks mate, yes did all the interior myself, Over here in South Australia we have to have the rearmost edge of the dash padded to be approved for registration (and being road legal.)

Thanks Glen,
Tomorrow going to play around with Ground clearance and wheel alignment.
Waiting on door popper's to arrive so I can mount at rear of bonnet so it will "pop up" by itself when bonnet catches released.
Not entirely happy with drivers side mirror oscillation, so waiting on a part I can modify to rectify. Then its just a very good clean (dust in every nook and cranny underneath from painting.)
So not much to do and then I will contact the engineer.
How is your build going, haven't seen any updates in a while?

Richard

Knock yourself out Sunman, (figure of aussi speech, means go for it)
Appreciate your comments. I like "classic replica's" as well but I just wanted to do something a bit different to the norm.

Cheers
Richard

Hey Richard, I really like the double roll bars. Mine only has a large single across the whole width and I hate it. Would you have a plan of yours that I could use as I do plan to change mine over. It is a beautiful ride, well done

Hi Jason,
Thanks for your comments. Don't have a plan as such, when I ordered my kit I specified I wanted 2 roll bars, ICCARS put in both the mounts for me. The bars came from the US, They came as a kit with mounting "cups" you may be able to use your existing mounts and custom fit extra inner mounts.

Richard
