Ya unless you need to sell it I’d keep it ready to switch out in case you run into any issues.
We all know that Shelby engine can go past that red line, just get a sharpie and move it about 1k 😂😂Received my gauges from nisonger today😃. Sneak peak of the 1😉 View attachment 237546 View attachment 237547
We’re all stoked about it as well! Especially because we’re not paying the bill 😂 I’m absolutely jealous 😂😂🍻. between planning and fabrication,I’ve been waiting well over a year for this lol.theses last few weeks are just killing me now.this will be my first rear engine build so I’m pretty stoked about it.
Ya we’re definitely living this through you! 😂It’s officially down to single digit days till delivery 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻.idk about you guys but this has been torture for me lol
Congratulations Joe!!!! Looks amazing. Can’t wait to see the build progress.Not what we been waiting for BUT still a big day today lol. Motor is home🙌🏻 View attachment 248587 View attachment 248588 View attachment 248589
Joe is truly a master at this, he comb’s over every detail! It’s exciting to watch and see the progress with explanations. I’m sure he puts more though into his builds than many of the big car makers do on their stamped production cars. I highly recommend going through his Cobra build page.Hey Joe. How many hours do you estimate it’ll take you to complete your build? I don’t have a good sense of scale here given my mechanical incompetence. 1000 hours? More? Less?
Joe the video idea is so cool! I absolutely vote Youtube! I started a YouTube just to host videos for here.Im off this week due to COVID so I’m on a garage quarantine lol.I’m on a mission to have car for next season so need to maintain a good pace,not to mention I been waiting over a year and 1/2 for this.I’m going to try the video And see how it goes.
I wonder if while Picasso was painting people ever watched it and said yep that’s art going to last forever.coffee time and sit back at its Current situation 😬. She gonna be one BAD B*#@$ lol

It’s super clean, looks awesome!Yessir,trying lol. So much different with most of the wiring going to the back compared to front. No fender wells or radiator support to tuck wires away or hide components. I refuse to Mount anything on the bulkhead like all the other gt40 builds do. I want a clean look 😎
I like the look of the yellow area BUT the blue area below it might offer less area for the key nest to scratch the dash.Cant decide where i want to put key😑. In between gauges where yellow mark is or opposite side in green or in aluminum panels in blue?

Joe you are an excellent builder. Nothing is overlooked and everything is done right! I really appreciate this thread! There’s still people building cars the right way!Up to the fun part, where it all ties in 😬.who dont like some spaghetti 🤣🤓.before i pulled dash back out I use the blue tape just as a reference so i know where to bring the individual harnesses out.

Im with ya I think a lower spot would be better. You don’t want the eyes picking it up in that spot.Need opinion on gauge location as im not to crazy about it on top.Leave where it is or move to A lower spot?

Oh HELL YEAH gotta hear that beast roar!!Dash wiring complete. Just need to wire gps module. Once i do that ill wrap the remainder of wires to fuse box.first start is right around the corner😃 View attachment 256748 View attachment 256749 View attachment 256750 View attachment 256751 View attachment 256752 View attachment 256753
I nearly inhaled my entire cigar 😂😂😂😂😂LMFAO😂🤣😂 that is hysterical, I literally choked on my coffee lol
I’m not the first to use it but it definitely applies here 😂😂 Kermit loves that build 😂This is the funniest sh$t lmfao
I’m just amazed every time you post photos!! That looks amazing!! Picasso couldn’t paint it better!shifter and linkage complete.catch can is temp in spot where I want it but wont mount till headers installed just incase need to move alil. Everything is mounted,as you can see my bulkhead is clean just as I like it lol.only thing on it is expansion tank😉.most likely will not see another gt40 with a clean bulkhead atleast I haven’t yet lol😎. There is so many ways to make a build unique in its own way, get creative,a lot of fab work & patience in the end the result is well worth it. Have big plans on the interior aswell for a clean simple look🤓
