Re: Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

Really looking forward to hearing what comes out these. I drive mine on the street and I hope you are planning on that too I will definitely make the trip over if I can be a passenger for a few laps at Goodwood.

Re: Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

A new pattern for the gear shift casting.
I thought I would do another to the drawing in the GT40 parts book with the flat top and front bolt boss.

Re: Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

Latest.
Alistair has added a few final parts this week including an early ZF gear change to the transaxle which clears the geometry of the shift rod to lateral drive shaft better.
It's for deffo looking the business !

Re: Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

A special order for Dzus fasteners which are over an inch long for the front vent panel.
These are un-plated bare steel ready for chrome.
