    Father and son RCR GT40 Mk ll Build

    Ben: My son and I went to the factory V build school at Motts college in Michigan and build a factory V cobra over a weekend class, he was 11 then, I told him that if he enjoyed the experience we would buy a kit, (not a Cobra which I don't like that much) . After much research we settled on the...

    Kurt H (hoffkm) SL-C build thread

    Kurt I was going through your posts and read about backing up. do you have a backup camera mounted close to the license plate? I have the main rear view camera on top of the roof and the side mirrors, both don't help at all judging distances and backing up, but my backup camera (right above...

    Has anyone tried one of those electric boost power brake setups?

    Never had manual brakes before. I am slowly getting used to them . It certainly takes a lot more force , but feels to me you have a lot more control, but I have only been driving for a week. the manual steering can be tough on parking lots you just have to muscle through it , I don't see it as a...

    So a couple of funny stories, I am slowly backing up of the garage and my wife is screaming the the car is smoking and smells really bad. It turned out the clutch was not releasing and the clutch pedal went to the floor. I decided to take a look and noticed a small leak on the hose fitting, took...

    So a couple of weeks ago I signed up for a local car show, I sent a message to the organizer, a couple of hours later he contacted me and said he looked online to see what an SLC looked like and asked me if I was serious and I had one. And whether he could advertise about it :cool: So I made...

    Restarting my SLC project in West Texas

    Installing the seats and set belts required a lot of extra work, in order to meet the Schroth seat belt installation requirements I needed to grind a gap between the adjusting mechanism and the seat, then had to take the entire seat to the vise to bend the seat belt mounting bracket, because...

    Restarting my SLC project in West Texas

    the filling fuel hose was no easy task either , needed two 90 degree bends , I used a plastic that is fuel safe, I attempted to use what was supposed to be flexible fuel hose but it was way too stiff for this use , I only used a little piece to connect to the tank. I also did not know that you...

    Restarting my SLC project in West Texas

    while installing the front portion of the rear wheel covers, I realized that it rubbed against the fuel pressure gauge, luckily moving the gauge forward was super easy, just a couple of holes and a new mount location. I also attached the liner to the frame , which adds additional support to the...

    Restarting my SLC project in West Texas

    I thought I caught a break on the rear wheel liners, I did not need to do a close out panel to access the rear tail lights , there is enough room underneath to access the mounting screws, and they fit perfectly upside down. however fine tuning and cutting the middle section took a while. there...

    Restarting my SLC project in West Texas

    While trying to install the front wheel covers I realized that the pigtails for the headlights were sticking quite far and preventing the wheel covers form going in further which resulted a rubbing problem when the springs are compressed and with turning. So as Joel called it, I had to perform...

    Restarting my SLC project in West Texas

    I added the ducts on the front splitter using peanut butter since there were huge gaps between the duct flanges and the splitter surface. I also used peanut butter to close the honeycomb voids on the splitter and create a smooth transition surface between the duct and the splitter , sorry I did...
