    Leon.. Thanks for the info, let me know how your screen turns out. The Rear suspension tower is finished. I added a latice tube arrangement that’s a little different than original but should be solid. An additional support bar was fabricated from the bell housing base to the engine to stop any...

    I've been building for 2 years now... the goal is to be running late summer which I consider doable.. a lot of stars will have to align. Work continues on the rear suspension tower, and will require another couple of days to complete. Its the first time both rear rims have been mounted(15"x18"...

    The rear suspension bottom bracket is now installed, added the extra side brackets which should be more than strong enough. The main forces involved will be pushing and pulling on the bottom lateral links. Made a start on the top suspension tower. This has presented a few challenges. Dart don’t...

    McLaren M20#73

    Made a start on the rear suspension bottom bracket. There’s about 25 hours in it so far. Constructed out of 5mm 4130 with a couple of 2.5mm filler plates. Had to have a couple of folds done on a press brake and fabbed the rest, then tigged it all. There’s a couple of 1/2” bolts to the...

    McLaren M20#73

    Had a bit of play milling up the front engine plate. There's plenty of meat left as the Oil pump, Alternator, ProCharger and routing of all the pipes has to be finalised. After that it will be milled more to lose weight. 2 x 10mm 5083 end plates where also cut and folded (heated then 20mm radius...

    Ford vs. Ferrari--New Official Trailer

    The movie was a bit of entertainment for sure, depicting historical accuracy it was not. 1965 Leman, Miles wasn't listening on the wireless drinking bubbles with his wife, he was partnered with McLaren and lead for a short time before the trans crapped out.
