    Rubber thingy..

    GTD refered to them as "Tobbler bars" and they werer made of a grey plastic. You can probably get them from Mark Sibley - of MDA - if you can locate him. You might also try Andy Sheldon at Tornado Cars

    Front spring rating help needed.

    My GTD weighed 2760 lbs. with a load of fuel and 180lbs. in the driverseat with Bilstein shocks i found that 350lb springs in the front and 325 lb. springs in the rear worked very well. That is use the heavier spring in the front and the lighter one in the back. Good luck.

    Construction / manufacture year?

    It depends on the Manufacturer. As an example if that were a GTD unit that number would mean it was the 221 car built and that it was done in 1990.

    BF Goodrich tyres

    If you really follow the speed limit signs - especially those suggested for curves get the T/A's. If you enjoy spirited drives get the Avons or Yokohamas or Hankooks or etc. I started with T/A's and found myself tip toeing around the track until I switched to Hoosiers (not a street tire ).

    Clear Sealant for Headlight Lens/Covers

    If you want to have it water tight you will have to have some kind of sealing material. If you don't like the black ring try painting it the body color.

    Is this CAV GT40 a good buy?

    The price is very good if the car is as represented and is unwracked and properly built. You need to have eyes on the unit if you are going to buy !

    Based on the pictures you have posted I am guessing t you will spend a lot more money to turn this unit into a decent looking, road worthy unit than you could ever get from a sale.
