    Clarification of terms

    agree, so many little differences across the cars. Early cars vs later cars, road car vs race vs Mirage vs something that was later converted back to a race car, then there is the differences between MK's and crash damage or particular race cars from different owners/teams. A Race car would be...

    That may well be the intention. I would need to see photos of the nose structure on the first couple of production cars, as they were still sorting out details of those parts as they went into production. the definitive nose was fist fitted to 1004 or 1005 wasn't it? GT40P/1/2299 - 2300...

    I seem to recall noticing that all the MK III stuff was with the XL prefix. That is just a general observation though.

    Girdle, cad file?

    Does anyone make something like that for the Windsor? Not sure it would be necessary for my application, just a question out of curiosity.

    Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

    I thought it was this car for a second, but its oh so slightly different. https://www.streetmachine.com.au/features/1956-continental-mark-ii The one in the link above recently went to Auction at Burns and Co, so I am not sure where it is now.

    Girdle, cad file?

    They generally need grinding/milling to clear the top of the main caps. They are not just a flat plate.

    Dash Demister Grill

    Adam, I agree with you regarding installing the front two bolt holes. They were angled back but only at an angle that matches the windscreen on the original donor vehicle, this was certainly a lot steeper in rake than found on the GT40. I presume the GT40 dash would be easier to remove than...

    Dash Demister Grill

    Thanks Adam, Maybe I was not clear enough as in reading your answer i now realize that we may be talking about different parts. As you know, I have both a 4 bolt and a 6 bolt grill in my possession. The 4 bolt has two metal tabs, that are attached (spot welded? cant remember) onto the...

    Looks great Adam. Are they going to come with the brackets for holding down the front edge as the windscreen? Regards Ryan

    Streetable Eight Stack

    They used a similar set up in the later S65 & S85 engines. The S65 V8 looks to have a plastic manifold in place of the metal pipe. I have not looked for pictures of the S85 V10. not sure on the E46 tuning I know they talk about Alpha N when the CSL airbox is added. in terms of engine size...

    Streetable Eight Stack

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/145402347470 these are bmw itb's of an e46 m3. note what looks like 2 fuel rails. the upper one is actually a vacuum tube to link all 6 cylinders together. This is how Bmw did it in a production engine circa 2000s. I know some of the 8 stack manifolds are linked...

    Fabulous as always James, Interesting, I think someone said the one I have is ex MK V, but looks very similar to this. Only difference being that the trip reset cable comes out the back, not the side. Can you show a photo of the lighting installed in the back of the gauges. This is one part...

    rearview mirror

    Agree, no two race cars are alike. GT103 had what looks like a Lucas 608 mounted directly to the windscreen. GT104 has a more rectangular mirror, maybe a Lucas 584 or a 521, which is mounted on a stalk coming down from the roof. I tried to get my mirror element re chromed and polished...
