    Avon CR6ZZ. age of tire

    The date code looks like is just on one side of the tyre. I checked some old ones I have and on one side it has a code to the right of the AT code you mentioned above. To the left of the AT code is the E11 marking. My old tyres have 2814 which I assume means week 28 2014. Regards Dave

    GT40 Mk2 XGT-2 rear screen mesh size

    Steve, I do not have the dimensions to hand and the car is away from home at the moment so I can not measure. It is aluminium and is slightly rounded as I think from period images the original frame looks rounded as is that on the restored 1046 (my picture from Le mans 2016 attached). I have...
