Daytona Coupe Cobra -
Back to work

It is time to get back to work on the Daytona.

The car now has approximately 9,000 "test" miles on the odometer, but there are still a few unfinished items or things that need attention.

Certainly in 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic got the worlds attention. By early March, the state of California where we live issued "stay at home" orders except for essential trips. If there was any good news in this situation, it was the fact that I had a lot of time to spend in the garage and getting back to work on the Datyona.

This section and those that follow are picking up where the previous web pages left off and are intended to describe some of the tasks recently accomplished.

  • Weber carbureted engine installation
  • Radiator air outlet air deflector and Engine oil access door
  • Hood work stand
  • Footbox insulation
  • Engine cooling system modifications for Webers
  • Clutch and brake master cyinder feed lines
  • Coming soon - Transmission crossmember modifications
  • Coming soon - Starting to tune the Webers

The list of tasks to completion is starting to get shorter.
