Thanks guys. Summer here in Paarl, South Africa is pretty hectic. It was 42 degrees celsius at 18h00 last night. My garage has a corrugated iron roof with no insulation, so it is kind of working in an oven. I cannot wait for March when things start to cool down significantly. I will really give it a good go. In the meantime I will assemble the GT40 mold temp. Although most of it looks accurate.... there is quite a couple of things that do not look so original... maybe you guys can tell me if it's worth my while. I will also have to make flanges for assembling the mold. What bothers me on this mold is the fact that the doors are not cut into the roof and that it has a sunroof. The mold also came without doors and bonnet. So those I will have to make. Except for that, the rear glass seems to be bigger than the norm. I did find 1 or two pics that looks pretty similar and my gut tells me it might be a mk3 or close to it.... Anyway I will post pics and you guys can give some input. The dimensions seems to be spot on.
As far as my 'Vigi' goes. I used a Peogeot 307 windscreen and will also use the complete 307 winscreen plastics (around the windscreen wipers) I will fit these in my mold for the recesses. I managed to pick up a cracked 307 windscreen from the local autoglass guy for free. As you can see that is already on my mold. Tail lights I will make myself from lexan (lenses) and the lights itself will be LCD in aluminium backplates. The 'beehive' vents under the tail lights will have to be machined I guess. Headlights will be projection bulbs.
Engine wise, I'm thinking of a suped up Lexus 4-4,3 litre V-8 with Audi box, although my original plan was the Mercedes 6.0 litre V-12.... (I might very well go that way still... otherwise I will have to change the name to Vigilante 4.0 Vengeance...
Everything inside the car, dash, centre console, seats etc will be made handmade.
Chassis will be a custom frame chassis .... kinda copied from preliminary Diablo plans posted on the net. I will make sure it is very sturdy though.
