    Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

    @EDDIE, If you like the little Boxford you might look for a Tom Senior E-Type which has a similar bed but has the benefit of quill feed. This is one that I restored this year in my home workshop for model engineering. It is an ex-schools machine and some delinquent was using the bed as a saw...

    Front substructure measurements

    David, Alistair is using a Serck alloy GT40 radiator which is nicely made and I am using the copper one. I think both material versions are custom orders and in fact the photo on their sales site is of mine which I bought years ago. I must admit it, now that I would go alloy which I assume is a...

    Front substructure measurements

    IMO yes, the incline and fixed height of the radiator is important (to me anyway), I would have the bottom nozzles horizontal and at the correct height to fit the rubber connection hoses to the alloy tubes to avoid stressing them, also off of the floor pan. If you are going for the original...

    Front substructure measurements

    Would you not be measuring the depth of your radiator from the side brackets to the bottom to determine your own datum first ? The radiator side brackets sit on top of the horizontal tube section.

    Ray did get his tooling project finished and delivered the first two chassis' to Alistair and myself, regrettably he did not get to sit in his own.

    Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

    Who would have thought that today is the tenth anniversary since Ray passed. Verily, he was a man made of many a good quality. Exceptionally enthusiastic about all things GT40, his ambition to build a new business aimed at constructing a number of quality GT40 monocoque chassis was tragically...

    Arrangement drawings from grabcad (?)

    Those GAs are not Ray's CAD drawings. We have a set of drawings that he and Steve made including the press tooling and his complex jig table.
