Front tubes all hooked up and insulated.did not like that throttle cable was near foot pulling from the front so i found a small linkage from speedway and came up with this contraption. Function's perfect and nice and smooth. Cable is now completely out the way.

Started the a/c lines and heater core.waiting for 1 fitting then i can crimp everything. I ended up bending hardline to go from rear to front instead of the long hoses. A ton of fabricating to put heat&ac in but what a nice option lol

So after buying just about every 10an AN 90 deg fitting and it not fitting in space i found a company in New Zealand that makes pretty much any custom size/style AN fitting and they came through with an amazing product. Hard to trll from pic but that is a 1/2npt to 10an in a spot with no height and no room to get s wrench or finger lol

Cooling system is complete and should all be self bleeding.in the front i put a piece of hose to join the section where it transfers from chassis to the aluminum front section to act as flex spot. Id be lying if i said it didnt kick my a&$ lol.

Couple things.... First is just a curiousity though... This is NOT a discreet place to put your "Garage gun" if it's labeled this way

Second...

Do you mock it all up first, then blow it all apart again to have parts finished and or painted? Or do you do one and done assembly? I can't remember but it seems like you built the Cobra once right?

😂CCW are the wheels on my supra.
The cobra was built twice. Orig I started build with a svt cobra drivetrain, mid build i decided i wanted to be diff from everyone else and took it apart. I cut up front part of chassis and rebuilt to fit gt500 drivetrain, once that was done i sent out for re PC and then assembled car once from that point. The 40 is a 1 assembly build besides stuff i fabricated/changed,At the end ill take off and send out.
The faster i get them built the quicker the next build can start 🤣😉
