Id say its time for an update there Bobby. How else are we supposed to know what part we need to push you to finish.

I was thinking the same thing: In fact I just got back from Mastercraft Bodyworks, Erik is going to pick up the cobra on Tuesday and do all the panel alignment and trim - hood, doors, trunk - then bring it back and we'll pull the body off so I can continue the plumbing and wiring and get this motor fired this summer.

I have a backlog of pictures to go through as well, i'll try to get some updates posted this weekend.

Awesome!  How exciting.   Paul, you must have the most amazing wife, or most spoiled.  If I brought home a second cobra kit I'd be a dead man.  Not divorced - murdered.

Maybe one day i'll upgrade to the mustang IRS, then a T-56 six speed, then the 8-Stack EFI (I already have the return fuel line in place just in case).

And I have to also thank you for the body buck drawings. I've been using it more years than I care to admit.  AND I can't wait to tear it down and burn it.

Anyway, can't wait to follow your new build.

I recall building the body buck in April, 2007 (doesn't seem that long ago) and I also recall the joy I had when I tore it apart in 2010. I am so looking forward to doing this again, just not taking that long.

Used the plans from the website and all is still good. Glad this has helped other Hurricane builders. Hope more get involved in this process and we up the traffic on the forum

More to come

Loaded the majority of the components at Lake City on June 28th. 7hr ride home and begin unloading the next morning. Local club members gave a hand with the heavy stuff. Really surprised by the quality and 'heftiness' of Hurricane over Factory Five. These guys have unloaded a number of FF Mark IV and all commented on the weight and thickness of the various pieces.

Paul, can't wait. I have my adult beverage in hand. I'm sure it will be a first class build as usual.

After 8 years of tinkering with my GenI Hurricane, I decided to jump into the deep end again. Most are aware my obsession with being period correct. Build II plans are to carry this even further.

Sit down, get an adult beverage and some popcorn and watch the fun begin

This build will again be an FE, this time i've sourced an aluminum Shelby block for my base, TrickFlow heads and Borla EightStack fuel injection. Performance Electronics ECU system. I'm runnong a very similar system in my current car and very pleased with its performance and reliability

The running gear will be a TKO600 with the Libertys Gear's upgrade and the new Hurricane '15 IRS. 15" pin drive wheels

I ran into this on my GenI build. Put a bottle jack between the two arms and opened them up. Little bit at a time till you get to the correct dimension

They shrink and move from the welding heat. and are easy to spread or bend a little into position.
