Steering is light, clutch really easy, gearchange good although a little stiff going into fourth, visibility no big...

    MDA Mk1 with Gulf Arches - Martin P

    Hey Malcolm, Thanks for the invite. I think Mick is a little sceptical about a finish before September. He's actually booked me into the Eastleigh show on Sept 8th already so that he has a real deadline to work to. If its done by 31st August, I would love to make it, but I won't put any pressure...

    Paint is on the car.. So pleased with the result. Only the rear clip and nostril panel to get done, then its back for fit up. All smiles now :thumbsup:

    Which GT40 to buy??

    Have you talked to both companies at length and discussed exactly what you want to achieve ? With any small business you need to be sure you will recieve your product on time as promised and have the back up you need throughout the project to finish it. You should get a sense of who you feel...

    Where can I get the "blue lights"

    Hi Jim, The large rear ones are aircraft landing lights from WW11 aircraft. They are quite readily available on ebay in the U.K but the blue ones are a bit harder to find. I have a red one on mine + a spare. I also have a green one that doesn't look good with a red car. The front one is a...

    Insurance who !

    I'm with Hagerty. 3K miles/Yr, Needed a Tracker fitted and its quite expensive but I struggled to find an insurer that did better given its a new car (62 plate) and valued at over £50K. Martin

    Tornado

    Believe me, I know how frustrating it is to have an incomplete kit of parts. However, you can't be sore at another manufacturer for not helping you out, especially a direct competitor. It would be a favour if they did, nothing more. The fact that they choose not too is not meant personally I'm...
