    Good choice with the decals! I purchased mine from I say ding dong also - love them!

    Its a stroked Windsor engine i think, rather than a side oiler?
    Anyway, lovely car.

    A six gallon tank is sure going to have you carefully planning your routes. On a spirited drive that could be less than 70 miles.
    Nice car and welcome to the club with very large smiles per gallon.

    Hi,

    Interesting that you have moved from a DBS to this Cobra

    I have a DB9 manual which after a break from Cobras I am considering selling to fund a Cobra, how have you found the change?

    Kevin is correct, it is a stroked Windsor motor.

    John, I had a string of 3 DB9’s then the DBS, all of which followed many years with Porsche. I just became completely bored with it all.

    @ Paul, I want to put some Team stripes on the wing like you have, but it’s proving to be real tricky following the various curves, s9 I have temporarily given up on the idea. I think I need to try again and use some heat.

    I suspect I’m teaching you to suck eggs... but have you have got the body wet before apply the stripes? Gives you the ability to move decals around a bit. (Water and a bit of washing up liquid) Then use an old credit card to push out the water & air bubbles from underneath.

    Hi Alex, thanks for the tip.

    I did try with soapy water, but the stripes just wouldn’t hold as they come over the wing and around the flared arch. Every time it looked like it was going well, they would pop up off the body again, where the flare and wing meet.

    Definitely a case of user incompetence! The sun was also shining and I couldn’t waste time stuck in the garage! Going to give it another try tomorrow.

    Mission accomplished. Water and a little heat as we turn into the wheel arch fold.
