    Track rides with David Hobbs

    Hey Rick, I just submitted a donation for one of the reunion ride-along laps but didn’t see a way to show my availability days. Unfortunately I’m not staying for Sunday’s events but would love to ride along on Friday or Saturday…I sent a separate email/note with my request. Just thought...

    Classic HorsePower Scratch GT40

    Side sill graphed together incorporating the stretch. Lines are starting to come together (albeit rough) and will be good enough to go to bodywork stage. Next will be an upper door splice to correct the windshield to upper door line. I’m still amazed how the various sources of all these...

    Classic HorsePower Scratch GT40

    Well it was time today to “weld” the side sill covers into final length and form. They were 66” in length (widest point wheel opening to wheel opening) and supposedly taken from a skin mold of an original car. Even though the original wheel base was 95” and splitting my skin around the spider...

    Classic HorsePower Scratch GT40

    Ok a couple more pics. The rear part of the back window stops just below the air cleaner top. Just for reference, I have the 40 on my four post lift which makes it about a foot in the air and my Chevy 2500 is about a car length behind it. Ordered and just got delivered today a set of Lotus...

    MFT Holinger for GT40

    Warren, love what I see on your oil catch can setup. Anything you would do differently? How is it working for you and does it have a line going directly back to the pan or what do you do for draining/servicing it? Devin

    Classic HorsePower Scratch GT40

    I don’t have a direct pic looking in/out of the bulkhead window. That air cleaner certainly fills the space without being too thick. Here’s a couple other pics from different angles and will get the direct shots after work today. I am thinking of building a custom “turkey pan” to help direct...

    Classic HorsePower Scratch GT40

    Dropped in the motor & trans today. Things are looking pretty much as planned and expected. Will have some trimming to do on the GW valve cover oil filler neck to stay below contact with the clamshell, but the top of the covers themselves are about an inch+ from touching. I tried the largest...

    Classic HorsePower Scratch GT40

    G86.20 Boxster S 6 speed. With the AP design rear suspension, there are a few challenges but the biggest positive was the cost and gear ratios with the extra gear. The biggest negative is that the engine sits about another inch or so higher (the transaxle drain plug is the lowest point) as the...

    Classic HorsePower Scratch GT40

    Time for the mock up motor to come out and the 347 stroker to get mated (although not final) and ready to check final fit with it in its final form. I also needed to clearance the starter with the Kennedy Engineering Products adapter plate. A small albeit time consuming job of using a burr...

    Steve's RCR GT40 Build

    Have you set it on its wheels and adjusted its ride height? After that is done then a four wheel alignment and check of the wheelbase from side to side is necessary before looking at those panel alignment/adjustments.

    Classic HorsePower Scratch GT40

    Well the heart of the beast has been completed and bought home. 347 Stroker (SCAT) with Edelbrock RPM heads, spicy roller cam, Aviaid oil pan, FMS shorty water pump, and modified and leveled aluminum intake. Tried my set of cast GW valve covers on and discovered three things. One, the bolts...

    GT40 Molds needed

    Those molds on FB are in the UK but might be worth the shipping to bring them over to the east coast.

    Rick you are the man! Keep up the great work and and I appreciate all the work I know you are doing for this event. I know from being the Airshow Director for two different events how much work it is!

    GT40 Molds needed

    It would help if you would identify in your profile and post where you are from so someone in your country/continent can better suggest sources.

    Original bits II

    Yes I see those, but the backside of the tumbler/mechanism isn’t friendly to modification being pot metal and not a bolt-on actuator. If I have to, I’ll try to make something “work” but isn’t ideal and really a $50+ gamble. Plus the back of the Weston lock is threaded and secured with a nut...

    Original bits II

    What’s a good source for for these locks now that SouthernGT isn’t around? I’m in the US so would prefer something here vs the overseas shipping & additional cost/wait time.
