    Sorry for the early morning sarcasm, of course I was not being serious by any stretch of the imagination.

    AC Hose Crimper

    The tool in that that link above looks promising. The alternative is having a radiator shop do your crimps. I did this for my build. It was $10 per crimp, I had about 10 crimps. At least you know the tool is good and the crimps are done right.

    G96 master cylinder size?

    I never even installed the 3/4 based on other builder's complaints of the pedal effort. Make sure you always install an adjustable clutch pedal stop so you don't overtravel the slave!

    G96 master cylinder size?

    I used a Toyota 5/8" master cylinder for my G96.01 on my GTM, with the caveat that I have not yet driven the car. It has been started and can run through the gears. I dropped down from the supplied Wildwood 3/4" master to decrease pedal effort.

    Modern-day Miura

    Amazing stuff. The only metal shaping that I find myself doing is trying to make my aluminum sheet flat again after it gets a warp from cutting it! And that's hard enough!

    Aero and radiators

    That being said, the most high performance cars in the world (ie dedicated race cars that don't require a frunk for groceries) exit that air through the hood just a little forward of the SL-C opening, which is easily replicated with only minor body work that a builder could knock out on a nice...

    Aero and radiators

    If you are looking for high speed stability, I wouldn't dump air to the underside of the car. For a street car that never sees triple digits, you will be fine though. This book is a great read if you want to try to maximize aerodynamic efficiency.
