Hi Kevin,

The 2.5" K&N filter that fits the S&H air cleaner is the E-1025.

Next up is the rear control arms, I decided to replace the upper rear control arms.
Fresh out of the jig and ready for coating.

Next up we are fabricating the small race screen.

Not very practical on the street of course but looks great for the race car look.

Might also come in handy for the odd track event!.

Hey I loved the race screen on my car!
Kevin found it chilly in the passenger seat but I was toasty.

Craig,

I see you decided to fabricate your own race screen. Looking nice so far. Where are you getting the screen from and what will it be made of? Lexan, glass or something else?

Probably Lexan, many pictures of early cars I have seem to have this style of screen.

Started the pattern for the lexan.
Waiting on some help from a good friend to finalize the shape of the lexan.
Needed to get the base mounted so the car can go to paint.

The last thing on the list before paint is fitting the tonneau cover.
Now we are ready for the shinny stuff!

Craig,

Nice job on the tonneau cover. Where did you get the material from? I fitted one to my ERA and used their pre-made kit; all I had to due was instal the lift dots. Looking forward to seeing the painted product. What is the wait time on the paint job?

We have been waiting on this little gem, huge thanks to a club cobra member here that has graciously given us a fiberglass hood scoop out of his original parts stash.

I have had a few scoops in my hands but none have been the quality I was looking for. This one is hands down the best fiberglass hood scoop I have seen.

Now we need to trim, and fit the scoop then get it to the paint shop.

It may be a small detail, but this is a great addition to the build. I am extremely happy to have this piece.

Small details are what separate a great replica from a good replica!

Question Did all original cars have fiberglass scoops? What makes this scoop that much better? What about aluminum? I thought about making a hammer form to make some out of aluminum.

Mongoose930 05-13-2018 11:19 AM

To the best of my knowledge, all original big block cars had fiberglass scoops (assuming they had a scoop at all). What makes this one so special is that it is exactly like the originals in every way - size, shape, material, etc. The person who provided the hood scoop for my Cobra has arguably one of the most amazing original cobras in existence and I suspect this came from his collection of original parts. Doesn't get any better than that...

MAStuart 05-13-2018 02:35 PM

Thanks for replying . I guess I thought some were aluminum. So there are a lot of fiberglass places but good copies of an original scoop is hard to find.

289 alloy and later added by owner options glass
427 glass

The fiberglass hood scoop is now fitted ready for the paint guy's.
I also made a mold of the scoop for future builds.

While the body is at the painter I have time to go through some of the other important parts needed.
Finished rebuilding the rear uprights.
Happy with them now.

Nice job Craig. Where did you get the rotors?
