    Thank you guys

    Very happy that i went 4mm more agressif to get that 3" rear lip for the wheels. The wiring is started and i must say Edward is a huge help !!
    The suspension will need some ajustements. The body is on since i left for vacation and my guys can ajust the side pipe, windshield and alot more

    Do you have a build thread for the mini? I've been looking at doing a BEC myself and would love to see your buildup.
    I can do anything with enough time and money.

    I do but but its in french and most of the pictures are gone. check you'r PM


    So finaly got the top after 6 months, wasn't expecting having it this ruff. There's going to be alot of work needed, manly Trimming it to lower it and have it fit perfectly. The top is from Bruce i payed 500$ for the hardware, didn't get the rear window and i was surprised to only get a few metal brackets for my 500$.



    Once its done and lowered it should look something like this.

    Very busy at work, the cobra is sitting at the body shop. They trimmed and installed the side pipes, only missing to install the windshield and trim the hardtop. I might be changing the leather of the dash for all alcantara, a bit like a superleggera. What you guys think ?

    Boy, he sure left you a lot of work to do on that top! Based on the rest of your build, I know you will get it right.

    I enjoy your updates, and your car looks great!

    I look forward to seeing the rest of your build.

    Regards,

    Steve

    What is your source for the thermal insulation in the foot boxes?

    Also did the mod for the rear quick jacks, took 3/4'' off to get them tighter on the body



    Fuel lines, prestone reservoir and the powersteering is hooked up and ready to go.

    Bought a new house that needed some renovation to put it at my taste. Also built a nice seperated garage for the Toys. Since thats done, i can finaly get back on the cobra.

    Still working on that top !

    Had to add 1/2" to match the door lines.

    The top is nice and solid molded to the body, very easy to pop off.

    Molded the bracket for the rear hatch

    They also worked on the windshield ton make it perfect


    Can't wait to bring it home, get it striper down and start it

    It’s Been awhile since I havn’t updated my build.

    The top is done ! The car is painted, A/c system is bleeded and should be working, windows are done, carpet is done, dash is almost done. We might have a finished car within a few months.

    The headers are so close to the foot boxes, this isolation is realy needed.
    Absolutely love that steering wheel and I’m assuming your working on a “murdered out” (learned that from my adult kids) - look. Very nice craftsmanship and your ripping along...

    The silver-gray is stunning in contrast to your carbon black wheels. Really look forward to seeing this finished.
