We have taken care of the fuel cell!  Still a lot to do but ran out of time. Its on the truck to Monterey. Hats off to the Cobra Automotive group.

What was the "problem" with the fuel cell?

It was RED and stuck out like a sore thumb. That is my guess anyway.

Yes that is correct it was the std red.  Looks better now for sure. Amazing how responsive this group had been. I would get feedback from Jon and others pass it along, next thing I know they are on it. We didnt have time to cut the hole for the plenum though.

I wish my car went together that quick. You got more done in two months than I have in 3 years!  I am glad I am not paying the bill from Cobra Auto though. I am trying to as much as I can myself. I just bought a 4' finger brake so the project list has expanded! Can't wait to see your car at Lime Rock.

I might get to the Glen, but sadly, not Monterey, or Lime Rock.  Will your car be at the Glen?

That has been the general feedback from everybody looking in here on the forum. Hat's off to Karman for returning it to it's
original color scheme. The easiest thing to do was leave it as is or repaint it in orange but he bit the bullet and returned it
to its beautiful original green and the result is a simply beautiful car. I can't wait to see it next weekend in person.

Thanks guys  the pre reunion session went well. We had two sessions on Sat. The first session the mirrors were way off and I was almost blind on the left so that wasn't great. The second session was 100 percent better. The car handles completely different but ran great. After session was complete the power steering hose blew and the car filled with smoke got a ride back to the pits on the flat bed.  Challenging race track for sure. We had fun looking forward to next weekend. It was great John Ryals was there and had an opportunity to spend some time with him and his buddy Mark.

Nice to get that extra "seat time" before next week's races. Why is the car handling differently?
