    Coyote or SBF

    Steve IMO you have summed it perfectly and that is one of the reasons I enjoy this forum so much, there IS a space for every GT40 builder on this forum. I lurked on this forum for months before I finally made the commitment to buy a proto-type MKI body from CAV in Cape Town. I started off with...

    Henty's scratchbuild GT40

    Hi Robert Thanks, bit of a story behind those rims. I saw them on a light pick-up some 18 months ago on my way to church. I eventually tracked down the owner and found out they were South African made rims:thumbsup: Then I tracked down the manufacturers and they informed me that they did...

    GT40's at Manchester Classic Car Show

    Really nice turn out. Don't know much about photography, but with such a dark floor and walls everything "dulls down", a really good camera and flashes bounced off bright screens would have gone a long way, my 5cents, great looking cars:thumbsup:

    Henty's scratchbuild GT40

    As the saying goes "seek and you shall find":nice: and so I came upon GT40-KVA.co.uk where a Mr Lees has logged his build diary of a KVA GT40, very interesting stuff, does anyone out there have any knowledge of this build:pleased: I have sent Mr Lees an e-mail but have so far had no reply.

    Henty's scratchbuild GT40

    Been a while since my last post and I have made very little progress other than build the jig. Maybe a bit over the top but I thought it makes no sense to have a poor platform to build off. Will post a photo when I find it. Life has been getting in the way of everything that I want to do...

    Hi Fred Good to hear from you, sent you a message on FB messenger, now the kids tell me, I have to "ADD" you first, anyway old age:huh:. Wanted to chat to you about the 016 gearbox bolt pattern you posted on locostbuilders. Also doing big renovations at home for the last time, been at it for...

    Henty's scratchbuild GT40

    Hi Paul & Ryan Thank you for the information attached, much appreciated, Pauls layout bolt pattern talks to the rear cylinder block view layout from Ryan. I did a CAD overlay, the two layouts are measured from different zero lines. I don't think this thread is in the correct category...

    Henty's scratchbuild GT40

    Hi Paul Thank you kindly:thumbsup:, I will definitely have a look how that compares to the 351C bolt pattern. In my short 6 month involvement with the GT40 scene I have not yet met/made contact with another "scratchbuilder" in SA, there are quite a few around especially up Durban way, but those...

    Henty's scratchbuild GT40

    Good day Gents I trust you are all well, been some time since my last post. As I have mentioned I am using a 1972 Ford 351C engine and and the 016 gearbox. I have it in my mind that it would be wise to have the engine gearbox set up and incorporate that into the rear end build process or am I...

    Henty's scratchbuild GT40

    Hi Fred The first fit that I did on the dollie had a support at the T-top junction, I decided to revise the fit as the dollie was too far back. I forgot to put it back thanks for pointing out that:thumbsup: much appreciated. I have the glass, front and rear, I have built a "box" to protect the...
