I think you may be right about the newer ones not requiring a trim of the fork since it wasn't necessary for #782. I'm using a fork for a WR toploader and forks for a WR and other transmissions could be of different length.

I think it's more about the tunnel. <730 are fiberglass if I'm not mistaken. I use a C/R Toploader.

That's not so bad. I ordered an ERA brochure in 1980 and placed my deposit in 2009.

Now the excitement starts.

William I didn't catch that you are a soldier. I just retired about 15 months ago.

LOL and I thought I was bad visiting Peter in 2001, not having my checkbook or I would have written a deposit check at the time with a big smile on my face after having my first ride in an ERA. Just as well, though, as the divorce in 2004 (and maybe earlier if I HAD my checkbook! ) would have made ownership short-lived.

Here it is 15 years later and I'm getting serious again!

Now, to find some of those schnortzy new sunburst wheels!

WTW,

What is the status of your build? You should come to the London Ohio show in June.

He sent his deposit in almost two years ago, so surely the car is close to being delivered.

Hey, my deposit was in June of 2015. Correct 2015. No car yet but I’m not pushing ERA either. Good work takes time. Plus, I have two of their factory built cars now I can drive. Yup, I’m addicted to Cobras. Good luck. You won’t be disappointed.
