Hi Dusty, looking good.  wish mine looked that clean and neat.  What are the chosen spring size, rate and part numbers that you use on the rear end these days?  Also, what size of QA shocks are you using for this car?  Any thing special requested by the club?
Title: Re: Ohio Raffle Car
Post by: builder on October 24, 2012, 02:47:54 pm
Thanks everyone for the encouraging words! Fuzzy, we are just using the standard QA1 adjustable shocks and 400lb springs. No special request other then the deadline  :P
George, better keep the trailer unhooked for a bit yet!

Picture 1. Brake lines and floor mounted pedals all done.

Picture 2. All panels hung and fitted.

Picture 3. Body heading to body shop!!!

I agree Paul. Now that I'm heavy into the final (I  hope ) stages of the of the paint process I wish I had one of the "new" bodies. I'm sure I would be doing a lot less filling and sanding.

Sam

Post by: HAVASUBILL on October 25, 2012, 08:17:42 am
Wow!  I agree the new bodies look absolutely great.   This is a real plus for the builder, much less body work and better fit.

Good job, Guys

ps.  I wish I had new bodies, one for my Cobra and one for me.   ;)

Well been keeping busy so I only have one decent picture to post but wanted everyone to know things are going great! Cockpit tub and trunk tub are done now. Time to do the steering and electrical.

Last I heard the Ohio Cobra Club raffle for this car starts tomorrow so please get with a representitve or go to their website and buy tickets! The website has pictures of what this car will look like finished. All the profits go to a great cause! This is a great group of guys doing what they can on their own to help others. All with one thing in common, COBRAS!

Thank you all for your support

Sam,

The wheels are 15". Tires are M/T ST radials with 245-60 on front and 295-50 on rear. They look great on it and we are all hoping the new owner enjoys them.

Nice Dusty. We have a meeting on Saturday, I can't wait to show the club all these pictures.
Yes, the builder is eligible to win this car. Everyone over the age of 18 at the time of the drawing and who has a ticket is eligible to win.  The girl that does the drawing is a victim of cystic fibrosis and she doesn't know who has tickets in the drum, nor does she care! But we all do have a good time at the show.

George

PS: I agree with Bob's expression!

Well guys I have got some of the wiring done! And one sneek preview of the fresh paint! Good thing everyone on here is getting more of a heads up then on the lagging behind thread on Club Cobra :P
Once again any questions or comments?  ;D

Dusty

Are you following the build manual?    Or are you revising it?   Will the new edition be ready for print when I pick up HM2008 next week?!    :P
Title: Re: Ohio Raffle Car
Post by: builder on November 13, 2012, 08:45:28 am
I am trying to stay with the manual but also hard to do when revising it and don't have a motor or trans in it! But for the most part it is following the manual you will be getting ;D
Title: Re: Ohio Raffle Car
Post by: s_reynolds on November 13, 2012, 11:18:29 am
Dusty, since I'm getting ready to do the finish paint on my car, I have a question for you now that I've seen the above pic. Obviously the striping has been done without the body on the frame, so how are you sure the hood and trunk stripe will line up with the body stripe? I am thinking I will have to do the hood and trunk stripe to line up with the body stripe after the body is on the car and the hood and trunk assembled  on the hinges in their final position.

Regards, Sam
Title: Re: Ohio Raffle Car
Post by: builder on November 13, 2012, 01:48:07 pm
Sam,

I would advise painting the stripes on the car. That body is actually on a frame and those are the hinges for the Ohio car so I know them stripes will line up fine.

Dusty

Post by: builder on December 17, 2012, 06:46:48 am
Russ and everyone,
I had an idea that Hurricane was going to be building the raffle car but got the go ahead October 2nd! It was helpful knowing ahead so I could get some of the frame precut and I always have some items premade. While I was doing some assembly the body shop was doing bodywork and paint. I would've been done but there has been some minor set backs but I am working on finishing asap. I want this car to be great as it is for a great cause so get out there and buy your tickets! 
Fuzzy, I am not sure I want my car sitting in George's garage but you are more then welcome to come to Iowa and ride in it with me ;D
Dusty
Title: Re: Ohio Raffle Car
Post by: Fuzzy on December 17, 2012, 08:53:16 am
Hey Dusty,   
My wife told me if I decide to buy even more raffles tickets, maybe I had better think again. Something about just ordering another Hurricane for her so we would now where our baby was each night instead of worrying about the company it was keeping.  Ya'll better buy a heap of tickets to better your odds though,  'cause I'm feeling lucky.....
 8)
ken

on the side though, even if we don't win here in the "family", we win cause we get another family member and it all goes to a good cause.  And Dusty, thank you on behalf of the whole Hurricane family for doing such an amazing job for a car that gets given away.
Title: Re: Ohio Raffle Car
Post by: trainer7620 on December 17, 2012, 09:21:36 am
Fuzzy and Dusty,
Thanks for your comments. We are starting to get some tickets sold. These tickets would make great stocking stuffers for Christmas. All of my family is going to get one.
Tickets can be purchased on line at www.londoncobrashow.com or www.ohiocobraclub.com Thanks for all your support!
Registration for the show is open now. we would like to see everyone there!

On behalf of the Ohio Cobra Club, Thanks for your support and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
George

PS: who ever wins the car is welcome to park it in my garage! Dusty, I will take GOOD care of it! ;D ;D

Ken,
I hope you are lucky enough to win it!!! But I will be happy for the winner as I know it is one nice car even if I did build it ;) And thank you, I am doing the best I can and not just for Hurricane but for a great club and organization!

George, If I win it you can park it in your garage till I drive it home ;D And I would even let you be the first to drive it, if you hadn't already :o
Title: Re: Ohio Raffle Car
Post by: Fuzzy on December 18, 2012, 08:03:34 am
All in good fun, hope there are alot of tickets sold, I passed mine to my brother so he can get over selling his Boxster and get in a real car.  Hope everyone here gets at least one.  I can't drive it anyway with having a manual trans, can't shift anymore with bum knee, hence they always call me shiftless.   ;D
Hoping all members have a joyous and merry Christmas and we can all keep the families and friends of places like Sandy Hook in our prayers.  Lets hope and pray that 2013 will be  a peaceful year for the USA
one advantage to living in Indonesia is we get to celebrate Christmas and New Year's 11-12 hours ahead of you guys.  :) but then April 15th comes earlier too.
Have a great Holiday

is great! It should get it's engine next week. I will post new pictures then. Here are a couple from last week when I picked it up.

Careful when buying tickets online at the Ohio Cobra Club website.  You get a server error after you commit to buy tickets that makes you think the transaction didn't go through.  If you send it through again, you just bought more tickets.  I found out the hard way.  Got multiple receipts via email for tickets.  Oh well, its for a good cause.  I shouldn't have been so cheap and should have bought more tickets anyway.  --  Russ Rittimann

Post by: Paul Proefrock on February 06, 2013, 08:29:53 pm
George, try this:


One area of caution. If your files are real big, they may not upload. You are limited to about a 1Meg picture file and many cameras now take pictures that are 5-12megs. If you need to resize them, do a Google search for picture resizer. It is free and will install on your computer. Or email them to yourself and they will generally get downsized.

Hope that helps. I want to see the pictures!  ;D

Yes, I was wondering the same thing ...


Title: Re: Ohio Raffle Car
Post by: trainer7620 on March 05, 2013, 09:07:23 am
The reservoir mount is only temporary. We just had the car at an 10 day show in Cleveland and everyone loved the car! Hurricane did an outstanding job on the car! Usually I hear people say that they wanted a different color. Not once this year. Color was "dead on".
Many thanks to Hurricane.
The color in the pictures looks a little different, I think because of the lighting in the building.
Engine is a Ford racing 306. 340 hp and 350 torque. transmission is a T5z also from Ford Racing.

Bob, I really want to. We are having a board meeting tonight and that will be on the agenda. It will be a 2 day trip for us each way, but I would still like to do it.

How well did your first outing do? Any comparison in ticket sales between this one and last years car?

Nice looking presentation

Paul, The car is really liked by everyone. The pictures just do not do it justice. My first outing showed ticket sales up by about 50%. I am really trying to get approval from the board to take the car to the Texas meeting in San Marcos. I have met some resistance, but they are starting to weaken. I shall prevail! We will have the clutch working by then and I will be able to drive it in and out of the trailer. We are looking to have a better year than last.

George,,,, Kudos to you and all of the OCC folks.  That was a great promo video!  Well done folks!  Makes me sorry that I have missed the last few years.

Still doesn't mean that Bill Dyer can come to Texas though ;)

I know that everyone is thinking that a better picture would be in their own garage!
Someone will get this car for only $20.00!
