    Windshield dimensions

    Hello Steve - Just a thought here from a fellow Kellison, or more accurately Kellison predecessor Universal Plastics Sebring GT, owner: have member Bill Hough cast up a windshield area section from his GT 40 spider mold and then graft in onto your spider section. Seems like an inexpensive way to...

    Help - GT40 Space Frame Drawings and Plans

    This sounds like a very good idea Dave S. I have been engaged in a scratch built GT-40 for too many years already and I am still stuck with how to make such items as suspension parts and all the little things like door handles, etc. A separate category along with sub categories with individual...

    porsche 924 tranny to audi 016 tranny case?

    Digging out

    Hey Steve - I wish I were there with you to help break out the fresh powder! I know that you must be a skier or you wouldn't have chosen to live there. Can't wait to try out my new skis. BTW Did you ever get any satisfaction on your stolen GT40? Hope so. Best regards, Orin Meyer

    Audi transaxle numbers

    56mm hole - how much horsepower?

    Seems to me I remember back in the days when Bill Elliott was cleaning everyone's clock with his Ford NASCAR put in the restrictor plate rule so that the GM cars would have a better shot at avoiding being lapped by him. Eventually they used the restrictor plate for other purposes, but I think it...
