Re: Cobra is back in the garage after paint

Tom,

Glad to see that you are back on the road. Sorry to hear of the paint shop woes. It seems to be industry standard.

Re: New surprises in the motor

Swingin' a big crank often leads to trouble.

It is nice to see that the filter did its job as well as the accusump.

Re: The substance we laughingly call "gasoline"

They are rebuilding the Gate station right around the corner from my house. Razed it down to the dirt, new tanks and everything. I just heard today that they are going to have an ethanol free tank. Hopefully it will be Cobra food 93 octane.

Re: Ceramic coating

Mike,

That looks great. Love the Webers and the crazy pipes. The ceramic looks nice.

Just something for thought. The crossover fuel line seems awefully close to the headers. You could get some really hot fuel on one bank. God forbid if there was a leak, which fuel pressure gauges are infamous for.
