Re: Help please

I have now commissioned a new bonnet to be made with a 45mm high scoop as per original BRA. I have been loaned a bonnet for this task and have been able to contour it to my car. The bonnet will be made over size to allow for trimming, it will be a top skin only, I will make a support tube frame. I w...

Re: Help please

Right chaps many thanks. I removed my carb to try the hawk ( unscooped ) bonnet, but on the idea of its owner I laid the carb on the manifold and we gently balanced the bonnet on top of it, the bonnet was raised @20mm all round, so if the scoop is 27mm high that gives me 7mm clearance over the prima...

Re: Help please

Thanks Peter, a measurement would be good please. I should have said that I was looking for a measurement from a GRP FIA bonnet. I am assuming that the scoop would be laid up as one with the bonnet ? and not an after fitment ? My elderly BRA bonnet is really beyond repair and having spoken to Gerry ...

Re: Winter projects

Had my Autolite 4100 off for an overhaul and clean up. They are beautiful carbs, perfectly matched to the 289 engine. There's something nice about a carb you can set the float levels on while the engine's idling... another job will be to sort the studs on the cast-iron manifold-to-collector pipe jo...

Not one metric fastener anywhere on my car, Clive. Pretty much all the smaller fasteners on a Cobra are BA.
Next time I see your car at a show I'm going to pop a couple of metric bolts in the footwell and watch from afar :D

We do not go anywhere that means socialising inside with others, so no indoor meets, drinks, eats etc. TBH it is not been too bad, still plenty of nice drives, and with a nice garden t...
