Framework size on a cobra 289

Post by Saliciousblack » Sun Mar 29, 2020 6:41 pm

Hi guys
Does anyone know the size of the metal framework in the doors, bonnet and boot on a genuine 289 cobra. I've stripped my doors, bonnet and not back to single skin and want to form the metal work for them but don't know the size
Cheers

I used 22mm cromo. I didn't get to measure up a real one but studied photos and scaled up from a known size, eg, the door catch. They look right and i'm happy enough.

A little tip, fill the tube with sand and cap the ends before forming, to avoid kinks.
