Hey John,

No mention of "Da Mook" tagging along, how is he doing?

Uh, because it's a replica, or a reasonable facsimile and the originals had them.

I butchered an old 3-2 fuel log that I had. Cut off the backleg and fuel fittings for the middle and back carbs, plugged and tapped for a 45 degree brass fitting for the rear. Also had to remove and reposition the fuel log leg to line up the inlet and outlet for the front carb. I'm fairly pleased and it looks pretty much like the original Carter fuel log.

The wire wheels, and the rear exhaust are a knock out on this car... any particular reason the hood prop rod is on the left side? Just curious

It's really funny how some people don't ask if it's a real Cobra, but say "That's a real one, right". I was at a cruise night last week and a guy came over and said "You don't always get to stand next to a real one". I told him you still haven't, but thank you. I guess I've achieved my goal.
