Update....as mentioned, brake lines at rear end finished.
Rear supply line is now connected to its master cylinder; pressure switch fitted also.
I had to reshape the line a little at the master cylinder because I had already pushed the three master cylinders as far forward as I could (because of my long legs).

Now working on the front brakes' circuit.

Cheers,
Glen

The last thing you need to make is a rotating jig that will rotate the car in all angles and put it in a art gallery for people to admire. You haven't built a car, it's more like art. Well done, I wish I had that much patience. JD

Installation of front brake lines now completed.

Here are the master cylinders….




Clutch is on the left (obviously); clutch hard line still to go in. Reservoirs of course will be remotely mounted.


….and here are the front brakes hard line routings to the flex line connections…..




Now on to the clutch hard line. Then there's a well insulated cover to go in over the three master cylinders.


Cheers!
Glen

Looking good Glen,
Very tidy build.
What is the power plant your going with for this one?

Thanks Craig.

Because of registration compliance requirements here in South Australia, almost everything under the skin on my build differs from a 1960’s Cobra, hence the semi-monocoque “chassis” and the engine specs.

So which "power plant"? The engine is a 302, originally factory-built by Tickford. It is at least from the Windsor family and of course has strong links back to the original 289FIA cars. Because of registration regulations here in South Australia, it must comply with “Australian Design Rule 37/01”. This means that the engine has to wear all of its 2002 vintage emissions equipment which then allows a tick on the form at registration time; no emissions testing is required.

Further information: our local South Australian Cobra Club has been in discussions for some time with our State Government Transport Department regarding the possibility of relaxing these requirements for our Cobras. If successful, I would then be able to modify the engine to look much closer to an original FIA/USRRC car’s engine.

Short question, and long answer

Cheers!
Glen

Heat shield for the master cylinders (left) and the mounting bracket / heat shield for the remotely mounted reservoirs (right), each part now insulated on both sides....
