    Dax Cobra - in at the deep end - new project

    Hi all,
    I'm the proud owner of a part built Dax Cobra and loving it. I've brought back to life a few classic cars in my time but I decided to give a kit car a go.......With a new chassis, engine, body and Jag front and back suspension...there's load of work to do by next year before the dreaded IVA. I'm wondering if there are any other cobra owners out there I could possibly meet and hopefully learn a few "Gotcha's" over a beer?

    I just may do that my friend...I want to take a look at one up close if I can, I'm just about to run the brake and fuel lines on the chassis, need to resource some anti roll bars and rear radius arms before I go anywhere near dreaded wiring loom!!

    Steve,

    Bloke from Stoke may be underplaying how many he’s built

    Hi Steve, I’m in Runcorn and completed an AK earlier this year. You’re more than welcome to come and take a look. Cheers Pete
