    GTD-40 Partially completed for sale *SOLD*

    Re: GTD-40 Partially completed for sale I need to make a clarification so that I am not miselading anyone with respect to the amount of work required to finsish the GT. By saying the car could be "driveable" in a week, I meant to indicate the amount of mechanical work required to get it to move...

    GT40 sills - how to make these?

    Very easy to press in with a bead roller, but if the panel does shrink a bit when you run it through the machine. Alternatively you could start with a fresh panel, press the beads in and then index the panel to the holes in the chassis. Brian

    Tornado @ Lime Rock Park

    Ditto on Bill's comments, I spent a significant amount of time crawling over Scott's car yesterday and it's a top notch build. The gaps in the body are uniform, that hardware like the fuel filler caps, instruments, headlights and suspension bits are real nice and the paint is fabulous. If I can...

    a (small) light in the night: it is possible to road plate a gt40 in Italy..

    Certainly not an ERA, possibly GTD or Tornado. Amongst other things a few give aways would be the flat door handles, the flange left on the radiator intake in the front clip, The styling line that runs through the top of the door on to the rear clip, the interior door release handle and the...

    Your input

    Perhaps a "here's everything in one box that you need" price would help. I'd love the upgrade, but like some of the other guys here I am on a modest budget and things just take time to save for. Brian

    I spent an enjoyable day yesterday attending the AMLS. Lots of accessable great tech, met some new friends, great food, just does not get any better, except for one thing. Out of maybe 8 jillion cars we found ONE GT-40. I think it was Eric's from New York, it's time for the New England boys to...
