Saw both the white and red Kobras out on the road and thought they looked really well - seems to suite solid colours better than metallic - the deep red in particular looked good.
Again be interesting to see the Grassbank rear hub/front control arm mod done on them to get deep dish wheels on...

Thanks Scott

Being the owner of the red one I take positive feedback happily

Also agree on the stars of the show. That Dino was very nice indeed.

Itís a shame I didnít realise you were there as would have said hi.

Dave

Thank you all for your positive comments about our build it is gratifying to get this sort of feedback after so many months of hard work and hours of development. It was lovely to meet so many enthusiastic people at the show and apologies if we didn't get chance to say hello. Our next focus is developing the grassbank website to showcase our parts, developments and links.

Thanks for that, "Barber".
I am very pleased with it. With some careful attention, even the niggles that only I know about could be addressed. It's just that it would have been so much easier to catch them between the primer and gloss coats.
Having seen how the prep was done, I feel more confident about tackling the Jago bodywork again and doing a "proper" job on that. I bought some 1000 grade discs and a pad at the show and now I'm saving up for a dual-action sander/polisher.
I spoke to some seat people at the show so the interior mods are now closer as well.
