    What happens to our part builds in 2030 !!!!

    I think it`s very sad that youngsters won`t associate the shapes of replica`s with the glorious sounds the original cars made Whether its the v8 roar of the 40,Cobra or the flat 12 howl of 917`s. I think those of us that remember are a vanishing breed. If only someone could replicate those...

    Just curious but why do you want them? In all the years I`ve been around I`ve only seen Gurney Weslake or Gurney Eagle valve covers on original cars with the appropriate Gurney cylinder heads. Most original cars had pressed steel valve covers and not Gurney type because they were a different...

    Window/headlight cover material

    I would check if I were you but motorsport regs for side windows might be 4mm minimum? Doesnt matter if you dont do motorsport. I might have got that wrong so please check

    Does this look like an original car?

    Wire vs Halibrand Wheels

    Water proof GT40?
