Re: Keith's RCR GT40 Mk I Build

Check with Fran @ RCR for the glass window. I know he had a few made up after I requested one.

Re: Keith's RCR GT40 Mk I Build

Congrats Keith! Now the fun starts sorting out all the details . . Just in time for spring. Took me about six months to get the registration process completed (Illinois). Hopefully it wont be as long in your state.

Re: Keith's RCR GT40 Mk I Build

Thanks everyone for the kind words.
It appears the sun will shine again Sunday so I hope to get out in it again and maybe get some video.
After talking to Fran I have decided to install the rear window that he provided. I ordered the nutserts today and i hope to get it fit this weekend.
Now to decide on the rear view mirror........

Re: Keith's RCR GT40 Mk I Build

I took the Gt40 to a car show this weekend sponsored the local Vette club. I am still working the vin/registration process so I don't have a license tag yet but this show was less than four miles from my house and accessable from "back roads".

A friend offered to follow close behind in my Cobra so away we went........ The trip was pretty uneventful except for the part where I decided to turn on the AC. I had charged and tested the AC during the build but I had not had it on since the body was painted. The first blast of cool air brought enough sanding dust with it to make me look like a snowman. It looked like a powdered sugar donut had exploded in my face!

The GT40 was surrounded by people from the time I parked it to the time we left. We had to move people away just to get some photos. The car drove well, handled well and was a BLAST to drive. I can't wait to get it out on the road and get the speedo calibrated.

And yes, taking home trophies from a Vette show is fun too...........

Keith

Re: Keith's RCR GT40 Mk I Build

It has been some time since I last posted. As I need some floor space in my shop for a new project I decided to install a four post lift so I could "stack" cars in the garage.
I wanted to back the cars in and did not want to get help each time I did so I installed a hoist on the wall behind the lift so I could just hook up a cable and pull the cars either on the lift or in under the lift.
I know it looks a little odd but it really works well............

Yes, I do drive the GT40, I like everything about it except hauling my 250 pound body out of the car................after a year I believe I will never find a way to gracefully exit.

I the past year or so since I have been driving the car I have made only one modification. I modified the fuel tank vent/roll over valves with barb fittings so that they vent through a piece of fuel line routed inside the rocker panels under the car. When they vented up by the fuel fillers I could sometimes smell fuel inside the car under hard deceleration. With the valves venting under the car that does not happen.

Smile Re: Keith's RCR GT40 Mk I Build

I am going to give a little update on Keith and I hope he does not mind.

Keith retired in Jan.
Bought himself a retirement present, CNC milling machine. He is staying busy make stuff out of aluminum.

A couple of days ago he came over and did a four wheel alignment on my GT 40. He did in a couple of hours what I could not do in weeks!

Thanks Keith

As he was leaving he asked if I wanted him to machine the parts for inside door release handles. Of course the answer was yes.

Keith is a great guy and has been a lot of help on my build.
