    Michael's GT-R Build

    Hi guys, I am getting the wiring harness attached to the engine. I have a few extra connectors and I though I expect they don't go anywhere, I was wondering if you guys have the same issue. This question would mainly go to Rufus, Ron and H Craft but might apply to other 5.2XS owners I don't...

    Working on the A/C at the moment. I put the dryer in front of the wheel well.

    Hi Larry, I probably cheated a little bit... I used cat hair for the whole thing. Michael

    Steve's GT-R Build Thread

    Hi Steve, I will be going through the same thing as you shortly, so I wouldn't minding helping out any way I can. I am an electrical engineer (and licensed electrician), and I know my electricity well. The issue is the description and function of the various pinouts on the steering wheel...

    Hello Folks; I need to purchase new springs to accommodate the Ramlift Pro I just purchased (and received). Currently, I have 7" springs (I think 650lb, not positive, so 7HT650) that came with the car. Interestingly, RCR put two different springs on my front - one is high travel, and the other...

    Mine is 2". I expect that they all are, and the 1 1/2" comments just propagated along after someone mistakenly wrote it that way.

    I stuck that check valve in the 1 1/2" elbow coming out of the tank. Had to look up what it was for, and once I did, put it in!

    I wouldn't mind an opinion or two here. I know that these builds are all about what we want to do and not about what other people want to see, but sometimes it's easy to get tunnel vision... and getting some more eyes on a potential issue can help a lot! So, as an engineer, I like right angles...

    Made a router template for recessing the tank filler into the fender. Had to add about 1/4" of fiberglass on the inside, as the depth of the inset is nearly 1/4"

    FORD vsFERRARI

    I was hoping to see a nod to RCR in the credits, but didn't see anything. On one of the first GT40 scenes, there is a quick shot of the driver's feet, and I swear I saw a modern Tilton pedal assembly. Anyone else see that?

    Hood hinges are installed and working! Very cool! I might go with a different hood support though... A little worried about rot. Just a word of warning. The hood "relaxed" a little over time after I cut it out, and I failed to check the arch across the front before I bonded that support...
