Re: LOLA T70 scratch build...

O.K. Here's my 2 bits. All of the original 16 mk3b's had grey painted tubs. They were painted on external surfaces only. Any internal area's were left raw. The only cars with nickel plated steelwork and polished sheetwork were the 78-82 continuation run by Lola. This was to distinguish between original cars. Also, some of the pick up points and suspension geometry was different. The later 2005 continuation cars were painted as per '69 cars. A lot of Mac's tubs are polished, but then some painted too. And it's just a good old etch primer and then French battleship grey to finish. And believe me, I know.
Oh, Marcus, riveting is carried out as soon as glue applied.
Cheers all.
Darren

Re: LOLA T70 scratch build...

Good to see you are working with Lola again.
Still amazes me how 50 ish years ago someone could decide to bend some bits of metal and come up with this design. Real engineering!

Cheers
Ian

Hi Marcus,

Nice!

How did you do the swage at the "end" of the U shaped part?

Olivier.

Re: LOLA T70 scratch build...

Hi Olivier,


this end part was hammered over a hard wood knocker block and then welded to the rest


Best,
Marcus
