Have been drilling and installing the aluminum parts for the last 2 weeks or so, along with fitting the front spindles, aframes, shocks etc.
Engine is due in next week along with the rear axles, diff, and transmission.

Hi

I am at a similar stage as you on my Cobra replica build. Rear Jag' running gear fully installed & am hoping to have my 84' 393 Windsor stroker installed later on this year!

Good luck from across the pond with your build!

Good luck with yours as well!! We are going with a new 8.8 rear end, 3.77 gears and a 302 roller cam crate engine. The trans is going to be race version T5.

Today we got the front brakes completely assembled and installed, along with the steering system, and pedal box assy with pedals installed.
Good progress so far. Rear is almost done as well, just need to install and we will have a rolling chassis.

We are thinking silver body with a black stripe.
Don't want to go blue with white stripe as there are alot of them around here. I haven't seen a silver one in the area yet, and we are trying to be different.
