Re: Jonas BEC GT40

Off to a real garage / workshop. Took 4 hours to get it out of garage, up ramp and and up on truck.

The wheels did not not fit on the uprights....vintage wheels US 17" Halibrands got too small inside diameter to fit on the BEC uprights. So new wheels are coming from BEC and the vintage ones will be sold

ZFQ in place. Slicks are not mine, just put there for show. Waiting for a new set of Halibrands that will have street tyres

Re: Jonas BEC GT40

BECs rear uprights....really nice work on these but they are really high so check wheel inner-diameter before ordering! All 17" do not fit

Re: Jonas BEC GT40

Side-mounted turn indicators needed here in Sweden, local law.

Found these small lights from Electrolite.

Ordered with smoked glass so blend in very well with the car paint (gunmetal grey is planned). 30 Euros.

Another option is the carbonfiber mirrors with integrated light with from Audi R8 GT. Considered them until I saw the price of 3900 Euro for a pair...that was used.
