As we have now got the rolling chassis to a reasonably finished state, we decided to put some time into starting the body and getting it ready to put back onto the chassis.. There are 4 main jobs we plan to get done before this can happen.

  1. cutting the holes and fitting the side vents – link to post
  2. cutting the hole for the pedal box. actually fitting of the pedal box and master cylinder will be done once the body and chassis are together – link to post
  3. painting the engine bay and outer footwell white (matching the appearance of the original 289 Cobra engine bays) – link to post
  4. manufacture and fit the engine bay heat shields – link to post

Working with glass fibre is quite a messy and dusty business and would highly recommend wearing a face mask for these jobs.
