Nothing to do with my project, just a gift for a buddy who is running a Volvo Amazone with top chop and Rover V8 inside. These Valve covers will look more period 60s. Old Rover valve covers, 2 vintage Offenhauser breathers and 2 vintage Offenhauser engine plates, sandpaper, wrinkle paint, aluminium polish and muscle grease.

Thanks Byron.

I thought 2010 and 2011 and so on. I have to get finished this year, definitly 2014. I have just 6-8 hours per week time and that is Tuesday night, often just with only thinking not making anything :-(

Don't be too hard on yourself, it's hard to get anything done in the wintertime. But look at it this way, the days are already getting longer and before long it will start to get warm again. When it does that old urge to drive will come back.

Jim is right don't be so hard on yourself. In doing my engine swap I found that the design of some of the parts took longer than the actual fabrication of the part. In your case you have a fibreglass replica that requires lots of design and fabrication that us Triumph and MG guys don't have to deal with. I am sure that you get a lot of satisfaction designing and making the parts. When I look at all the parts I made to convert my TR6 to a Gm 3400 V6 I get a great sense of satisfaction. Getting to drive the car is a reward for all the hard work that you put into the car but I am sure that you will always be tinkering with it as the tinkering part has it's own reward. Just ask Jim about the upgrades he is doing on his MGB. As some guys say the car is never really done!

Cheers
Byron

Oh MAN ! ! ! ! ! !

Such beautiful, BEAUTIFUL work on every single part, piece, and detail ! ! ! You're an artist ! ! ! ! !

That said, and I can understand your motivation for choosing the Cobra as a starting point for the body shell, it's still a shame to give away any of your well earned congratulations to a fiberglass copy a Shelby creation.

That car completely deserves an original body to match the original thought and engineering and expertise that has gone into it. It would be SUCH a shame to see it deminished by casual comments regarding it being another Cobra clone when it's just SO unique and beautiful under the skin.

Just my thoughts. I think that your wonderful creation deserves a wonderful skin as well.

Best of luck and continued success with the project, it's sensational ! !

TC

Thank you very much TC. It's just my idea of a Cobra based on a low budget. So the credo is: DIY
