You been at the motorist? I’m guessing it was you I went past on Selby bypass on the bike or I could have been giving a random thumbs up to another red cobra owner.

After all the work on the front axel, I’d never realised how hella flush the rear is!

Ordered some parts from the USA.

Full engine gasket set inc sump, so I can finally sort out that oil weap I have.

Along with some black HT leads to get rid of the horrible red ones.

Also some new pulleys so I can run a 6PK serpentine belt and sack this s**t v belt off.

Ordered some more parts from the USA.

My car suffers from wheel shimmy over 60mph due to the rack being solid all the way from the rack to the wheel along with 245/60/15 tyres notoriously not being round.... Road vibrations just end up being additive and it gets annoying real fast.

Luckily someone in the USA decided to fix this, by partnering with a company that makes the racks and columns for the Indy car series. So I've ordered a load of fancy universal joints and mounts that should cure it totally.

Wasn't cheap though, but if you mess with steering, may as well do it right.

What are you thinking for the rocker covers?

I’ve done crackle/wrinkle black on mine. Looks really nice and tones it down.

I have wrinkle black to go on them.

I might pick the ford racing out in silver afterwards.

I think I read somewhere that when people paint things nicely, and then spend ages painting the letters a different colour by hand it means they are wronguns.

Like when people buy a Ducati together with the Ducati leathers.

I'm sure you could pull it off though ✌️

How's steering stuff going? Looks well thought out.

I’m waiting for the last universal joint to come from the USA. It was the one which was a really odd fitment. Should be here on Tuesday hopefully.

Lol I’ll hold off on the letters…

Lol do what you want mate I'm only teasing.

Looks well made and designed. Is it from a company or an individual?

Can't believe how much you've done to it in such a short space of time.

From a company called Backdraft. Only rep with half decent none ancient suspension.

When it's bouncing off the governor nobody will care what colour the HT Leads are, you go for whatever you want Steve.
