    Sandy's GT Forte build

    Sandy, just having a look at your pictures.... Think the angle of your steering coloum through the top U joint looks too great, believe it sould be less than 30 degrees but more than 10 (IVA manual, Protective Steering Section 14), maybe the picture is mis-sleading but yours looks more like 45...

    Andrew's GT Forte build.

    Hi Rod, the chassis came from a UK supplier, but all the panels you see and the modifications are my own. The car was going to be built with parts from one supplier mainly, but over time i changed direction and it is now going to be a mixture, taking the best from a couple of suppliers. All...

    Andrew's GT Forte build.

    Re: Andrew's build. Thank you Michel, not sure i will ever be 100% happy with it unless i build another, but its 98% there. Sills came from the kit supplier, but I am sure anyone can do it if they have a rolling machine. The swaged flutes do however make the sill top a bit stiffer. Andrew

    Andrew's GT Forte build.

    Also while I was getting some parts laser cut I came up with a bracket to mount the alternator a bit lower. I found it very difficult to find room to mount the alternator without it coming into contact with the rear bulkhead and at the same time giving very little room for adjustment...

    Andrew's GT Forte build.

    One of the bits I have been working on is the gear shift system on the 01E. Going with cable shift and right hand gear stick, but as gear shift input shaft is on other side of the gearbox it required some thought to transfer the movements across the gearbox. I had looked at several...

    Andrew's GT Forte build.

    Re: Andrew's FrankenForte build. It has been quite a while since my last post, but that does not mean I have been idle. I have spent quite a bit of time reviewing the direction my build was going and the quality of the parts I was buying....mainly after talking to other builders and seeing...

    Andrew's GT Forte build.

    A long time since my last post but work commitments and a few DIY jobs about the house have meant i was not able to spend as much time as i wanted on the build. Also any spare time i do get i spend in the garage working, so it leaves little time for posting updates. However there has been...
