Hey guys, fantastic thread. Paul, did you receive your axle shafts? Any updates to this thread? Just replacing my first set of fronts (Delaney adaptor, SKF Hubs) putting slicks on this week and from the sounds of things I better replace the rears right away as well.
I received my Graziano back with the new drop gears, installed it this weekend and took it for a drive today. Looks like it is working exactly as expected ... about 2100 RPM at 70 mph in 6th gear. I should be ready for COTA now!
Everything was professionally done, many...
I registered mine in Dallas 2 years ago as a 2016 ASVE (Assembled vehicle) and it was quite simple. The tax was only like $75 as Cam stated.
To get the VIN:
1) VTR 68-A from local police auto theft unit to confirm the car and parts are not stolen. In Dallas - 214-653-3430...

I created a very similar shroud but I found it was still getting quite warm in the cabin from the radiator. I bought a roll of reflective insulation from Home Depot and ran it behind the shroud covering the exposed footbox to the left and right of the shroud and I also covered the brake...
I looked for a similar discussion and haven't found one and it goes without saying I've watched Alan's videos. I want to discuss alignment settings and I know it is a function of car purpose and personal preference to some degree.
I plan to use my SLC for street use and one...
There seems to be a gap in the definitions above:
Definition: a complete body of a motor vehicle, not including an engine, chassis or drive train. Kit body is a replica of an existing or vintage motor vehicle."
therefore an SLC is not a Kit Car. It would seem to be a Homemade...
Hey, not a problem, thanks Cam. Was going to clean it up a bit this weekend and then post some. As you can see I haven't had time to paint the mirrors yet, but I prefer driving it with unpainted mirrors than not driving it at all.
