Thankyou Larry,
remember i had this body suspended and went fairly quick but oh i itched ;D
my son and i did such a good job that you can run your bare hands, fingers and not get cut or scratched
any place on the body, cockpit and trunk tub.

...Colors

I am getting HM1101 and have a build site.  On there I have 50+ pics of different paint and setup schemes if you want to look.

Good luck with the build, looks nice so far.

CS,  as usual I can't stop flapping my jaw about the attributes of the Hurricane and the quality work being done by builders.   :P

Your fire wall with the dowled effect looks so cool, its the best I've seen so far and I wish mine was like that.   ;D  I tried to dowl mine but couldn't get it right so I just polished  it a bit.
Also the attention to detail, coating the underside of the body properly is very very cool, it will give the car that extra quality.

Anyway, looking forward to more pics demonstrating your great ideas and quality work.

Best regards, Bill

Thanks MFE III, my first windshield wiper assembly :)

gurgling hopefully soon.

i know it's there.

they call it"engine turn" i call " it clock works " it takes along time to get it that way.

anyway still have to wait on our power-plant.
so much more reading and pre-fab i just want to turn the key. and yes more-mo.
time is easier.

DUDE!!!!!! That is the sickest Cobra engine bay out there. Keep up the good work and I wish I could see you're face when your engine fires up. Have fun on the first ride. Take it easy for at least 10 feet then nail it and hold on.

Top three pics are where 2 JL's go, 8w7's.
The containment is made of as follows;
there is a top piece.
FRP( pebble style fiberglass reinforced paneling).
Two pieces each (sandwiched) Sika Flex (butyl type adhisive) were formed then Cool-It brand Super Sonic and Thermo Guard FR on both outer sides.
Note; heat gun helps alot.
ps each piece weighs about 8 pounds.

CS, have you got the batteries charged for the video camera yet ?  We're chomping at the bit waiting to hear that bad boy run, even if its just idling and  popping in the garage... ;)   You guys are doing great.

Loud driving Rock Music.

I see you are putting in a stereo system, nice.

Me to, I'm installing two infinity 6x9 Kappa's and a 8" Kicker Solo Sub in the back.
