    Hello Q,

    Do you know a local supplier of Cobra badges? I am looking for the traditional look badge for the fornt and back and not the printed version, the cast type.

    Thanks in advance,

    Tarren.

    Hi, Q.

    Thanks for the feedback on "spitting image cobra".

    You seem to be quite well acquainted with dubbs - the builder of the chassis.

    You wouldn't perhaps know at what price he sells the chassis for?

    Hi, do you perhaps know of anybody or engineering shop that does shortening of lower control arms and drive shafts on XJ6 suspension. Regards Francois.

    Car is in the paint shop so pictures will have to wait. I'd love to post some as soon as it sees daylight.
    Cobras are all hibernating in Colorado right now. Soon (I hope) things will start happening.
