After 7 long weeks, the local council have approved our plans for garage extension and modification, yay!
The only trouble is, now that it's been so long (started this planning around April), I have changed my mind on a few things and we will now be modifying the plans and going back to council for a permit variation, they assure me it wont take another 7 weeks, fingers crossed. Hopefully the demolition will be finished and construction started before Christmas.

Greetings, this is my Cobra build blog. Here I will be detailing the ongoing story of building a classic Shelby Cobra AC427 replica. This build will take a long, long, long time, but I intend to document the entire process on this blog, from start to finish (although they say these builds are never really "finished").
The build will be based off a kit from one of the local Cobra replica manufacurers here in Australia. The kit consists of a chassis and fibreglass body combination, I then bolt on / purchase / manufacture drivetrain, electrical and so-on to arrive at a finished car. If you want to read more about building Cobra's then http://www.clubcobra.com/ is the best place to start.
For now I have not yet purchased a kit, as I need to decide on which kit manufacturer I will be using, but more importantly the Mrs and I need to extend the garage first to make room for this thing! More on the garage in another post soon.
