    Sean's RCR GT40 build

    That moment you realize you just built the mold for your new dual nostril setup backwards….. Guess I’ll be taking this apart to make it the right way tomorrow :rolleyes:

    Good observation, I might be wrong in my thinking. But my thoughts are that the flow of the pump should cause a pressure drop between the 2 tanks across the fins. If so, it should flow throughout the entire radiator. As of now it seems to be heating the entire radiator and cooling the engine...

    Body is really starting to look good. Sorry about the wind noise. I drove it up the road a few times in a spot that I could get on it. This thing is insanely fast.

    I’m getting a little better with the aluminum welding. Got the pipe moved to the bottom of the radiator. This definitely got things cleaned up in the front. I will have no issues with the modifications I want to make on the nostrils now. I will plan to make a line to come out of the top of the...

    Sean's RCR GT40 build

    I was able to get a lot done the last few days. Welded out the roll cage, got the spider, doors, and front clip sprayed with high build primer. I’m glad to see all the body lines are still were they need to be with only minimal effort to realign. The car is definitely looking good now that it’s...

    Sean's RCR GT40 build

    Wish I could say that was easy. After tons of fiberglass and body filler dust……. I got the rocker panels done with the flares attached. Went ahead and primed them and the clamshell with high build primer to start blocking them. It’s nice to see that clamshell as one color. Spider and doors...

    Sean's RCR GT40 build

    Got the flares that attach to the rocket panels on. Still need to pull them off to glass them and need to get some body filler to make it match the clamshell. I was surprised the curves were this far off on the 2 pieces. I also had to cut the tops off due to how warped they were, I plan to...

    I haven’t even researched any of that yet. I was thinking about painting the backside of the glass to hide how uneven the flange is behind it, but not sure if that’s even necessary.

    Hi Rod. Thank you. I used 8-32 on the rear window since I had a large flange to work with. I used 6-32 on the side windows and centered the screws to the smallest edge(the top of the doors where you indicated) since that flange was all over the place on width I figured centering it on the...

    Thanks Bryan Still have a lot of finessing left to do, but overall it’s coming together. I think I’m getting close to spraying a guide coat on everything but the front clip to start blocking. I’m hoping to get the front Sorted out within the next week or so.

    Sean's RCR GT40 build

    Went ahead and fitted the windows to make sure I didn’t need to do any body filler around them, so far everything looks pretty good where the glass meets the body. I plan to go ahead and mount the headlight covers as well to check them before proceeding with the bodywork. I was happy to see my...

    Thanks Randy. I did use a heat gun to take most of that warp out, but couldn’t get the last 1/8” to lay down right there. Cutting it was the only way I could think of to remove it.

    Sean's RCR GT40 build

    I was able to get the rear of the passenger door to lay flush with the spider. I had to make a cut in the door shell that would allow me to glue the door skin on to let it sit a bit lower. This worked out well. Now that section of the door sits even with the spider, and I can finally say that...

    Sean's RCR GT40 build

    I feel like I’m at a pretty big milestone. Just need to do a little more to the top of the passenger door and I can say the doors and clamshell are now fitted. I put 3/16” all the way around as suggested. It looks great. I used a steel flat bar I sanded each end on to make sure it was 3/16”. I...

    Thanks Randy. What kind of gaps did it have for the doors? Did you keep them at 1/8”?

    Check out Jason’s build. He did a really nice job on his. http://www.gt40supercharged.com/gt40_interior.html Post in thread 'Jason's Coyote Powered RCR40 Downunder' https://www.gt40s.com/threads/jasons-coyote-powered-rcr40-downunder.26333/post-371055 I’ve seen a couple others do it similar to...

    Thanks Bryan. After revisiting your build showing it painted I think I will do the same thing. The lines looked perfect on that car. This will most likely open up the doors enough to keep it off the spider.

    Not understanding the delivery process, looking for help.

    Ian I had a similar issue with them. I ordered mine in Sept 2020 with a quoted delivery of January or February of 2021. I understand this was at the highlight of the Covid supply chain disruptions so having the delivery date push was something I expected. I paid in full at the time of order...

    Still have some tweaking to do but having the body gaps done makes a huge difference on how the car is looking.

    Sean's RCR GT40 build

    I’m actually thinking 1/8” is on the large side of what’s needed. Guess I can make a more educated decision if the need to be bigger when I get to the primer stage. I feel 1/4” might be a bit big for the doors and clamshell though.
