The black stripes are fantastic! I especially like the 'side stripes' for the accent effect, very nice.

Okay, thanks all, I've got a lot of catching up to do.

Drilled out the distributor.

Scratched a fuel pump.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 00815

Got some base colours down on the block.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 00916

Got some colour to the block. Sticking with the read & black theme for this.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 01015

Base colour on the intake manifold.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 01117

Preparing the shocks for detailing.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 01215

Shocks painted according to the theme.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 01314

Started colour detailing the carb.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 01417

General progress.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 01514

Wired in the distributor.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 01613

Looking at this poor excuse for an alternator. I used a steel pipe for the fuel rail.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 01713

I'll remove it and replace from the spares box.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 01815

Raplaced the alternator with something more convincing.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 01911

Engine installed and also added an ignition coil.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 02014

Metalising the fuel tank.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 02115

Wheels painted to the colours I want. I'll add some Good Year decals later.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 02213

Radiator and expansion tank installed and plumbed up a bit. I will need to scratch an oil pump somehow.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 02313

Made an oil pump and an extinguisher with decals from the spare box. I think it looks good.

Good to see you back at it Dave.
That fire extinguisher looks like it would actually work!

Engine and detailing look fantastic. I had my doubts about the engine when I saw how they molded the manifold, but when it's covered up by the air cleaners, it's actually a good representation.

Soldier on.
Scratched the oil pump.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 02516

Started laying down carpet.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 02614

Added a steering box and column. I just guessed the position and it probably wont meet the steering wheel exactly but the bodywork will cover that part.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 02715

Made a battery and wired it up.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 02815

Dealt with the instruments. I have them all in perfectly centred but after dropping clear on top the lensing effect is making them look off centre.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 02914

Firewall and seats in. I'm using a steering wheel from the spares box.
Shelby Cobra (Fujimi) - Page 2 03013

I'm pretty much out of seatbelt materials so I'm just winging it with scrap bits and bobs.

Thanks all.
A bit more fiddly work.
Expanded on the throttle a bit and added a return spring.

Awesome work! I have a crappy Cobra stashed as a 'badly built parts kit' and your work is making me want to buy a good kit and try again. I especially like the colour combo.
