Project II

Post by Migge » Thu Mar 19, 2020 1:54 pm

I have decided to start a new Cobra special, project 2. I hope it will not take another 11 years to build :D . I started with a TVR Griffith frame which will be changed over the next few months to fit my ideas.

Migge,
You continue to be an inspiration to us all.
I can only assume that you managed to get dimensions of all the individual parts and plan their suitability and fitting on paper ( or pc) before purchasing.
What does the insurance company say about the vehicle being home designed and built. Not quite the same as saying it’s a modified BRA.

Peter,

Before I cut and weld some pieces of steel everything is done by calculation on my own drawings.

Everything else (insurance company) is not part of this thread and will not be answered.

I thought about a the thread with project II for some time and went back and force and today I think it was not a very good idea to post it at all.

I just wanted to add some stuff to the forum. In hard times we have right now maybe a good idea to entertain with pics. etc.

Sorry guys but the conclusion is: I stop posting and feeding this thread with anymore informations.

Stay healthy

Cheers
Migge

Sorry if I spoilt the original idea but I understand your position.
