so i finished the radiator ...primered it and was happy .. with 6 fingers i put it all loose together , radiator >fan>body with chassis and engine and then realized the expansiontank and coolinghoses .. block any vieuw at the radiator and fan ....so nothing can be seen .... primered result >
since most cobra's have those flimsy looking fans in front of the radiator i just cut part of the frame so it fitted exactly in the opening so now its even cooler the fan shows through the front opening .. looks cool and also more modern with this style of fan ....
the kit did not provide any cooling fan .. not on the engine and no electric ... so i cut one fan of a twin electric set up from a ferrari and started to make a frame .. still rough and not done
made copper strips in the braces .. very thin copper plate .. now on the kit those run through onto the rear edge of the body , i cut that off in the beginning due to the ride hight setting .. i will make something so it sits on the rear body edge later on
i hated the underside .. finally got something decent ..redid the tub in silver .. made a fueltank because i suddenly realized the rear is a underside but you see through and there is nothing there .. just looking at the underside of the trunklid .. instead of following the contours i just made a square tank and painted it silver so you see it a bit .. now the underside that was there was done in dark metal coat ..maybe i can make that silver zo it looks more one with the tank i made ?
seriously > alwys build it how you like it !! not everybody has got the same taste .. and thats a good thing .. i love the big chrome wheels and superlow ride hight ..and i vote keep it that way > looks killer .... i'm building a cobra atm with large wide dish wheels and most dont like the wheels ... and thats their right its taste ...i'm keeping mine haha loving the build !
just made and put in the real aluminium door panels ..pfftt that was hard lots of filing and altering .. just ..just could fit them between the body and tub .. on the rear they needed to be made lower because they caused the body to sit to high .. but after fideling i got them in
back wall from real aluminium .. i could make some sort of console box there ... or maybe like a speaker or single woofer between the seats ..
