    Dusty's SLC Build

    Dusty, I used Red 3M Scotch Weld TL62. Heavy duty, but removable with some heat and not crusty like the Loctite brand. My post #139 documents how I assembled the uprights. https://www.gt40s.com/threads/joels-sl-c-build-thread.52098/page-7

    Restarting my SLC project in West Texas

    Hector, Ha e a question for you. Was wondering what the white material is between the fitting and the condenser? Is that Teflon tape? Is that standard practice for Vintage Air AC Fittings? If so, is it the really thin stuff? I know Home Depot sells blue, red, and black where blue is the...

    Joel’s SL-C Build Thread

    Yes, not sure what material yet but probably some type of closed cell foam insulation and/or wrap.

    Kurt, you should have gotten a set of Foregatar center caps

    Mounting the Superlite emblems

    Brian, I have seen one of Allan’s videos where he used them as center caps so I guess they would work. Kurt, When I purchased my car one emblem was included and I purchased a second. Planned to use one the nose and the other on the steering wheel. I recall they were available while supplies...

    Joel’s SL-C Build Thread

    Time for the next update. This post focuses on the initial fabrication of the cooling tubes. In an earlier post I mocked up the cooling tubes out of PVC to get a sense for the layout and design. Here is a video on the process... I decided to follow in a number of other builders footsteps and...

    Kurt H (hoffkm) SL-C build thread

    Kurt, great progress. I am envious of how quickly you are putting your SLC together. With regard to the body, it goes on top of the chassis. The side skirts go below the chassis. The manual I think states differently, but just about every builder including Allan puts the body on top. I think it...

    Placement of cooling tubes under front control arm

    Hi Johan, I was thinking more about this setup. Am I correct in thinking you don’t want the EWP to run when the thermostat is closed? if so, do you have logic set up so it only runs when engine coolant temperature reaches the point where the thermostat opens and RPM is below 1800RPM?

    Radiator Bleed Setup Question

    Thanks Hector, yes. I want to make this as simple to run and maintain as possible. I haven’t gotten that far yet, but based on my setup I think I’ll do the radiator bleed line, HCV bleed line, and thermostat bleed line all into the expansion tank. The LT4 does not have steam vents and based on...
