    TRICO wiper motor

    Hi Yuji, Perhaps, could be useful to post some pics of your linkage and motor. I recently dismantled the whole wiper system on my GTD (but was a Lucas motor), and completely redid it (means deeply clean/grease/renew/adjust everything), changing gear ratio and now using a wider Datsun 240Z wiper...

    GT40 Tail Lights

    A door question

    Maybe true for SPF, but all GTD, Tornadoes, and other RCR have fiberglass only roofs. Driving my GTD, I've never get my WS falling on my knees even with the two large cutouts in the roof !

    GTD knock on wheels?

    I've been hit on the Le Castellet track last year. It destroyed a wheel and a tire (and ruined my paint job). I was happy to have 3 pieces wheels, as, after a careful checking, only the outer rim appeared to be damaged and had to be changed, which was not so expensive... (not to mention the...

    Cav gt40 for sale uk ***SOLD***

    Can somebody explain to non-UK citizens why a Q-plate is so poorly appreciated ? Is it a question of insurance ? MOT ? or only snobbery about having an age-related plate (the "my original replica is older than your bastard kit car" thing ?)
