    That explains it very well Nige. I’m often tempted when I’ve got a chip or some minor damage to have it blown in after seeing the amazing work you do but the thickness is just increasing as...

    The point of the post was to support Russ’s understanding of how this all came about and that it must be quite a common problem emanating from that time with all kit cars, not just Cobras. Being a...

    I wouldn’t want to buy one incorrectly registered but I guess it’s what the dvla did at the time. There’s no shortage of these apparently incorrectly cars.

    So if it’s not registered correctly there might be problems getting a garage to mot it but it’s tax and mot exempt. Are there any other considerations?

    Thanks. Just had another look at the label and it says:
    HUPO46-72Ah
    UK096/574 12
    700A SAE
    680A EN
    Perhaps the 700A is equivalent to CCA?

    Sorry James didn’t explain that well but meant where the top of the ally meets the body. Presumably there will be a little gap that will need some sort of filling/sealing.
