Ken,  I think the hoses are the 4" aluminum hose that you get at Home Depot.  They are fairly stiff.  I liked it better then the orange coily hose the fresh air kit came with.  Felt it would last longer and hold up to any residual heat.

BDF,  I got the car back from paint last June.  It was about 6 weeks to get her back on the road from there.  I've got about 1200 miles on her now.

Great looking car!!!  The fresh air kit you mention where did you get it and is it always open or cable pull/push shut or?

The fresh air kit was done by a guy named Cobra Earl on the Factory Five Forum site.  If you do a search for Cobra Earl Fresh air kit on yahoo you will find it.  It comes with the push/pull vents with a cable.  I didn't run the cable because i want them open all the time.  If i want to close them I can reach down and just close the vents by hand.  The blowers are mounted inside the wheel wells.  I rarely turn the blowers on.  When they are on they move alot of air.  I really have no issues with heat in the footboxes with the vents open and just the air pushing through on it's own.

Thanks for the insight. The past SPF Cobras I had include fresh air vents but no blowers and seemed to work well just to keep the air moving in the cockpit...

Bill, did you make it to Johnny Carson Park last Sunday with Matt Erieg?

Matt said  there would be several Cobra's at the Burbank Roadkings Carshow that day (13th.) 

Matt, Craig Baker and I were there last year..fun time for cobra's.    ;)

The trouble with people is not that they don't know , but that they know so much that ain't so.

Nope, HMS1053 was the sole Hurricane in Johnny Carson Park this year. There were 4 of us that arrived to the show late, but certainly made an entrance with "code 3" police escort (lights and siren)! Looked for your brother, but didn't see him.
