Looking good Bob. I'm still amazed at how good the fiberglas looks.

That was the latest pictures I've taken last weekend.  I just sat the cockpit and trunk tubs down on the frame to check the clearance for routing fuel and brake lines.   I'll go back and start adding pictures from the beginning.

I guess I should go back and start at the beginning:

Our scheduled pick up day was Friday November 23, 2012 - the day after Thanksgiving.  My son Nick and I drove from Dallas, Texas to Lake City, Iowa - and back - all in one trip, no sleep.   28 hours round-trip.

We left Dallas on Thanksgiving night, Nov 22nd around 7:30pm, with an empty car trailer.  We drove through the night - through Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, into Iowa.    When we left Dallas it was 71 degrees.  850 miles and 11 hours later, we pulled into Carroll, Iowa at 6:30am where it was 23 degrees and a 40 mph north wind.   Brrr!

We stopped at a cafe for breakfast before heading the last 28 miles to Hurricane Motorsports in Lake City.   I didn't take long to find it, since its about the only business in town! 

Since it was a holiday everything was shut down and there were no employees there.   Dusty met us and opened up the shop.  He gave us a grand tour of the manufacturing facilities for Bowie International and Porta-Vet - subsidiaries of Scranton Manufacturing of which Hurricane Motorsports is included.  Very impressive!

We then loaded up our trailer with the body and frame, and several boxes of parts stuffed into the cockpit and trunk of the cobra body, and the bed of the truck.    We were then on our way back home around 10:30am.

We had to make few stops to adjust and tighten the straps.  Other than that, no problems.   We got back home around 11pm Friday night, totally exhausted but grinning ear to ear  ;D     1,650 miles in 28.5 hours.

We are buying the kit in two stages.  This is the first trip.   So we get to do it all over again... !   ::)

I remember when we went to get 2006 it was not quite that cold but when we went in the building it was not doing anything out by time we got loaded there was 2" of snow on the ground and wind was blowing. Made it fun pulling the trailer (enclosed) in the wind and slick roads.

Sweet ride Bob, you doing a great job. I remember you driving my car a couple of years ago, since then I knew you were going to get one. All is left is to get the girls from Bikini's sports bar to put some butt prints on it and it's official!
Take care BDF.
