    Another project 56 Chevy

    Besides my Lotus build. I've decided to get back on track with my 56 Chevy pickup resto/mod. I've had it for over 20 years & had repainted the cab & front. But then got stalled by life (raising 3 boys etc). A couple of years ago I started to disassemble it again. For restoration but again got...

    Wheels! please chime in!

    Your wheels look nice. The BBS?Ferrari style looks good, you could probably have the centers powder coated/ painted gold. I've seen a lot of BBS wheels like that. I really like the black & gold color combination my self & painting my Lotus that way.

    Hello again - thinking of another GT40

    Radiator Venting Overboard

    Thermal expansion, the coolant has to go somewhere as it expands. You probably had the system "overfilled". Once it reached temp. Did it stop venting?

    My Lotus build

    I had been debating the looks of either a full width chin spoiler. Or the side wings like the T70 used. I made these up the other day & tried them on (only hot glued). I think I'll keep these. I'll need to make molds so I can replace them if/when they get damaged LOL I didn't want to just cut...

    McCopy mk 5

    Russell your estimates for the Rover sound way off. I'm building mine with 4 IDF wbers for way less than you're showing. With the carbs no worries about a computer.
