Diff collected today.

Breaking from the engine build updates for a minute...
Today I collected my rebuilt diff from Russ Derbyshire. Thoroughly nice bloke with RAM fitted with an RV8 that sounds awesome. Russ has done a great job on my diff, heres the before pic..

And the after pic..

Now all I need to do is work out the shimming of the pivot bracket's to get the right geometry, this could be fun!

Getting to grips with this.

Nothing much to add other than Ive put in the links to Picasa2 and uploaded some engine pictures. Ill do more as time permits.
Sorted out the historic posts now, so they will appear in months fairly close to where they should be.

Where did all begin?

The Beginning.
Many years ago as a child I was forever reading kit car magazines and thinking one day Ill build something. I always wanted a Countach replica.

Forward wind about 18 years and I finally have the time and money to actually do something about that childhood dream. I start thinking about building a kit and begin looking around, I stumbled over the Cobra replica club website,, and that got me interested in Cobras. Its just something about them that has got be hooked and some would say obsessed!

After lots of looking at the various marques I settle on the GD427, to be honest as soon as I saw the chassis design I thought, that the one, someones thought about that, and thats where Ill leave the story for tonight.

More the come!
