    I'd still add fillets under that notch. Stress fractures are common if weld areas are small and looking at the photo above it looks minimal to me.

    With the header that close to the starter you will have issues with heat soak and non starting when hot - a heat shield will be a must.

    I was thinking of a heatshield for the starter, maybe some thin shiny stainless? Also I read that getting the pipes ceramic coated lowers the radiated heat quite a bit.

    Ceramic coating will help hugely. You need something that will stop the heat getting to the starter but that will not retain & radiate the heat from the exhaust. I think aluminium would be better than stainless, but maybe look at the proper kits for starter wrapping insulation.

    Starter wrap looks very doable (I did not know special kits existed):

    I may be able to gain some space too - I made the silly mistake of not noticing that the engine had shifted on the jack while I was measuring the gap but it means I would have to cut my nice shiny first pipe :-(

    Not cobra related but I've been enjoying watching this project very much. Some good metal working skills and some great use of period components too. The guy is so knowledgeable and yet he is a college student and looks about 12 :-)
