    So I routed the backplate based on my assembled 3D printed template. With a woodworking router and bearing bit. Like a knife in hot butter. No filing required. Happy with the result. Round circles, holes aligned, fits perfect. A bit surpised, but hey, I won't complain when things go according to plan. The C shaped thingy is the "nut holder, allowing me to bolt the plate to the carbs. Not a lot of torque transmitted, but enough to tigthen the plate. Got 4 of them, screw the top nut, the bottom, hidden one falls in front of the hole. (1.5mm floppy alloy) The grid has not been kind with my prints, power glitches ruining 3 nine hours attempts and a significant length of good petg filament. (layer shifted by an inch or so) Beside the obvious defect, layer adhesion and resulting object was perfect. As PETG is a bit finicky regarding glue, I added a thin (1mm) inner lip to have overlap on the objects. Will help assembly and give more surface for superglue to perform its magic. I also beefed up a tad the fillet on the lower side (+1mm) in order to have a sturdier profile to seeal with the backplate thanks to sticky foam. Will still cover it in fiber, just to be on the safe side of heat and vibrations...

    Exhaust advice needed.

    Although i did manage to get it to fit i had another link pipe made up. The original one was made up at a 16 degree angle as per the jig they have, i measured the angles and now have a replacement one made up at 6 degrees..and weather permitting i will be fitting this tomorrow. Hopefully this should be the last time it has to come off...🤔 Next up will be the clutch!

    Ebay buyer criteria rant.

    Yes that was the thought I had too. But it's quite a big car breaker company and they have over 4000 feedback (all positive of course ). I was just shocked by it. 16 years buying on Ebay and never had it before.

    Cobra 427 Build

    A while back in this thread you mentioned about not getting many responses to your posts ... as you know from the Cobra forum I'm soon to be a proud owner of my very own and one of the reasons was this build diary. Can't wait to see this beast when it's finished!

    Hi @Rich201060, how long did it take to get the number plate and able to drive yours once you'd passed the IVA and sent off your forms? Got my IVA tomorrow and looking forward to driving her

    I'm sorted elsewhere now (where I'm allowed ) but did think about getting the mrs to buy the cheapest item on their shop and leave them bad feedback. But then had a beer and thought sod em!!

    Short of pestilence, we're planning to do this run. Would be really nice if you could arrange nice weather this time, last year was a bit cold and soggy!

    @aeg the blue MG that you were following when you were coming to meet us (overtook the slow car when the Z3 wouldn't) was Tracy from the Burton Car Club and she snapped you too. Stolen off facebook, what a small world we live in.

    Clan McWesty Fort Augustus 7 July

    It's the gate house to Ardverikie Castle, which was Glen Bogle in the Monarch of the Glen tv series. The gate house was seen in several episodes. Hope you enjoy your stay Chris. I'll bring along a spare alternator:-) I'm ok for the run on the 7th. We're back from holiday the day before, so fingers crossed that the car starts!

    Cobra 427 Build

    After the radiator alterations and revised mounting location/angle, the position of the bottom hose had changed so I needed a different angle of bend. This bend arrived today, so I have now fitted the coolant tank and refitted the cooling system. This meant I could restart the car and bleed the system. This is good news as now I can manoeuvre the car around under its own power. The the tank is not the highest point on the system but this doesn’t matter as I have a bleed off point at the highest point in the top hose.

    What was it let someone else buy it for you then leave a statement reflecting your experience with them

    Ebay buyer criteria rant.

    Made an offer on an item on Ebay and it was declined (fair dos it was a bit low) went to make a second bid and it came up with a message that the buyer will not accept any more offers from me. Weird never seen that before so messaged the seller (a business). Get a reply stating I dont meet the criteria to buy from them! Further digging reveals they wont sell anything to me because I have left 1 neutral and 1 negative feedback over a year ago. I could understand if I had a low feedback score or no feedback (over 1000 feedback at 100%) but I find that ridiculous they can do that. If I was a punter off the street or over the phone they wouldn't be able to 'vet' me (their words, they vet all their buyers) I was quite happy to avoid the seller and go elsewhere but really ended up quite annoyed and wondered if what they were doing was legal or not? In effect they only want customers who leave good feedback. Not those who have good feedback left for them. bl**** Ebay
