    DB Replicas

    I spoke to Dave on friday about a problem I was having fitting the tank to a standard dax chassis. I seemed to have a mix of parts. Anyway, not only did he explain in great detail about why and how this problem had arrose, he also told me how to get around it. He then went on to talk to me for approx 45 minutes in total about other issues that I might encounter and what to do about it. I have to say that for someone who makes his living from building these cars, and for every home built car, is a customer lost. He goes out of his way to help you with no financial reward what so ever. This is one top guy who I would defenitely recommend to anybody who is looking to have a cobra built for them. Thanks again Dave for listening to a stupid incompetent fool like me.

    Cheers

    I'll second that, Ok he ribs us AK owners, but if we have problems Dave is there to help. :thumb: :thumb:

    He's an ugly bugger, but a good bloke, pity there's not more like him.

    Christ, what am I saying, Ok I've been out celebrating my wifes 21st birthday and probably slightly pi***d, but what the hell. :thumb: :thumb:

    Well, I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background, one of the things I enjoy most is turning beer, wine, Scotch and margaritas into urine.
