That's a really sharp-looking setup you're building Wayne. It's got a nice stance and the roll bar looks just right... Lookin' great, bud!

This is the coolest Cobra I've ever seen. The stance and body modifications make this just right. I'm on board for the duration.

Looks Good! Cobras are rarely seen in Drag Racing, but this one is very nice exeption. Super Gas Roadsters are not my favorites in 1:1 world, but in this scale, they're very interesting.

Just a bit more. More sanding done on the body with a first coat of primer to see where I am at with the bodywork. I pulled a windscreen from the parts box to see how it would fit. And a shot of where I am at with the chassis construction. Like I said before, the chassis will be a parts box build all in it's own with all of the different parts that I'm combining together.

Thanks for all of the comments guys. A little more done today. Got a good bit more completed on the chassis. Not much in the way of reference to find for roadster style chassis so I'm pretty much winging it. I've got it to the point that the driver rollcage hoop is attached and at the perfect height. A few more cross braces to add and the chassis will be ready for some paint. I also added some more filler to fix any small defects in the bodywork. I also decided on using the engine setup from the Revell Jukebox Ford kit. I've got it mocked up to see how it will fit. When it's complete it will be topped off with a single four barrel carb.

Moving right along.
