Nick
That was one of the motivating factors to do it. On my first build, I had the ECU mounted upside down on the top of the footbox and every time I wanted to do something on it, I had to lay on my back. Getting too old for that.

I have a buddy who put the EPAS on his Factory Five and he gave me a unit with all the pieces. It's laying on the footbox right now to see if its worth the issues to put it in. I want to hide it so I maintain the originality, plus there's no room in the engine bay for it - too full of motor  ;D

I'll keep you informed

Paul,

I'm seriously looking at adding EPAS under the dash too - you're correct there's no room under the hood! Please Post if you do decide to add it under the dash. I would love to see how you attach it to the frame and how you clock it to be hidden - I agree I don't want to see it either. The reason I was on the forum yesterday was to see if anyone had pics with the dash removed to see if it looked like there is room. You're lucky in that you have the brake and clutch peddles coming from the floor - mine are old style and hang from under the dash. 

Can you tell me what EPAS you have? I see they also have kits available for the EPAS to add the speed sensor so it will adjust the assist according to speed vs. the potentiometer.

One of the biggest hangups I have on being 'period correct' is when you open the hood, it is obvious a fiberglass car, due to the configuration of the underside of the hood. I took this away by building a replica hood frame, then mounted the skin to it, same as the originals. Only difference is the skin is fiberglass instead of aluminum. Now just need to finish the fiberglass and trim to fit.

Paul, there was a guy from Mexico that brought a Hurricane to our Texas Cobra Meet years ago, before I ordered my cobra from Hurricane, so it was maybe 10 years ago.   He went a step further and had actual aluminum hood, trunk and doors, with the edges rolled over the tube frame EXACTLY like the originals.    It looked amazing.   I've thought of going with that at some point down the road.

That was Alfredo Canalizo, built HM1045. This is a link to pictures of the car and the sheetmetal parts. I just noticed he didn't remove the corners in the hood opening, but modified the tubes to fit around it. Strange to go to this much work and not correct that obvious non-accurate item.
