Default Cobra 'A' post

Does anyone have a photo of an AC Cobra MK2 drivers /passengers 'A' post showing the door locating hole and peg? I have the locating tube on the door but nothing on the 'A' post. Any help much appreciated.

There's a thread about those but unfortunately because of Photobucket going "pay only", all the reference photo's are gone from the thread. Someone might be able to repost photo's using a different file hosting site.
Door pins and sockets

Original cars: What worked for me.
The hole in the A pillar is aligned with the sleeve in the door frame. If the hole in the door jamb has been filled (or covered over with new coachwork) it can usually be found in the body support tubing (unless they too were filled) by inserting a drill bushing in the sleeve in the door frame and taking a small drill through the sleeve to the A pillar while the door is closed. Once the location is verified you can open the door and use the finish size drill to open the hole up for either the brass pin (for early Cobras) or rubber bumpers (for most Cobras).

I checked alignment in such a way on my unrestored car and then fixed all the door jambs in two other original Cobras that had replacement aluminum coachwork in those areas. In each case as soon as my small drill breached the aluminum skin it passed through the old holes in the steel tubing underneath.

A photo of brass pins? Or rubber bumper? Or?


Years ago I reverse engineered the rubber bumpers and had some made. I have never had any of the brass pin parts in hand to study.

I have never come across a good picture of an as installed by AC Cars brass pin installation that you could see any detail in.

Not many new car photos I have access to were taken with a car’s door open and even rarer still looking towards that area.

Most of the images of cars in my library from the modern era don’t show that area either and if they do the pins are usually missing.

It might be easier for you to find a new car photo of an ACE or RS2.6 car to study.
