Congratulations. Great looking car. I see some IVA mods: Got a date in mind?

End of Jan maybe into Feb, depends on when they give a date as well, IVA center moving in January and the new test center is a lot closer to here so waiting. Hopefully all the niggles and bugs will be out by then. I've been doing bits and bobs this past couple of weeks for the IVA some other bits got worked on. Made extra infill panels for under the dash over the weekend to keep the testers mushroom shape object out :D but i'll miss a few things I bet.

How long have you been building for rob ?

Started in around Sept 2009, had to go back and look at the blog (http://robscobra.blogspot.com/) there, However I had a gap of almost 2 years to the day until November this year before I got back to it, just life in general got in the road, this past month has been flat to the mat.

Its Gel coat I wanted to see how well it would come up. have a colour scheme in mind if I decide to spray it in a few years time. Interior 2 tone on the leather was an theme I had done on another car so GD got their upholsterer to do the red and black leather seats for me.

Got me thinking if anyone has "wrapped" a Cob?

PS noticed that little black'n white rascal sneaking into the shots;)

cheers

Aye thats our we staffie Diesel, wouldnt be without him :)

As for wrapping a Cobra, it has been done by a chap over here who does that for a living, good enough but corners etc do show up.

I'm sure all will be fine. Just another hurdle among many.

Cheers Beef :) hi Alan still some IVA work to do the wee rubber boot is on the list for the clock. Had a quick rummage the other day but nothing in the box of rubbers to fit ut snug. Will have to get a wee bleed nipple rubber or something in town.
