    Classic Car Show, NEC, November 2016

    Hi Darren, I've just finished my build and would be happy to offer my car for the stand. I'm coming to the show anyway so I would also be happy to help if you needed a body. Best wishes, Neil

    Southern GT chassis 15

    I have now finished building my Southern GT and I would like to thank Mick (and Adam and Stevie) for all their help and encouragement. Even when I asked the same damn fool question 3 times they were helpful and not in the least bit dismissive. You get what you pay for, and with Southern GT you...

    Hi Andy, I must congratulate you on a first class job. With your well planned layout and attention to detail it looks so easy............ If only!:bow: Neil

    Which trailer to transport a GT40?

    Thank you all for your suggestions. There seem to be many more options in America than here in the UK. Ultimately it will be the £££s that decide. Sadly, I cant afford to build a GT40 and buy a trailer and keep a wife. I'll have to economise somewhere..........!

    Which trailer to transport a GT40?

    Thank you guys for your replies. Tim, I could cope with small children and packed lunches 25 years ago, but definitely not now - so that rules out an enclosed trailer. In passing, they're incredibly expensive. From your comment Dave, it looks as if a tiltbed with long ramps is favourite. I've...

    Which trailer to transport a GT40?

    Does anyone have any experience (good or bad!) of trailering their 40? How wide should the load bed be? Is it possible to get out of the car if you have an enclosed trailer? It seems that a tilt bed is desirable to overcome the ground clearance problems when loading forwards, or am I being a...

    Classic Car Show, NEC, November

    Hi Darren, The stand looks very impressive; you have obviously worked extremely hard to organize it all. I hope you haven't had too many sleepless nights! I am looking forward to visiting the stand tomorrow as it will re ignite my enthusiasm to finish my build (Southen GT chassis 15) which is...

    Norfolk Tornado

    Hi Andy, Your stone guard is a brilliantly simple and effective idea. Do you have an air con condenser between the radiator and stone guard? Did you find a fabricator in Norfolk? Cheers, Neil

    SouthernGT Number 18

    Hi Paul, In answer to your question on Belinda's build log (I'm not sure if it's polite to send you a post on her log) I used a combination of air driven tungsten burr, round hand file and reamer type drill for my electic drill. The burrs are not cheap but incredibly effective and can be...

    Tornado Build - www.gt40builder.com

    Nice to see an Anglebox again. I got my first speeding ticket in 1976 driving one. It was during the petrol 'crisis' when petrol was about 4 bob a gallon! Happy days! Neil

    Belinda's build chassis 17

    Hi Belinda, This might be too late, but if your chassis is powder coated it is much easier to ream out the holes in the locating brackets on the chassis for the front wishbones before putting on all of the aluminium panels. I had to do it after and it was a pig though possible. The lower...

    SouthernGT Number 18

    Paul, To endorse other's comments, you've made a good choice with Mick and Southern GT. Mick built my chassis just about a year ago and I've been making slow, steady progress since. I will start a build log (don't have broadband where I live - poor excuse!) which might help you with those...

    Norfolk Tornado

    Hi Andy, Thought I'd reply on your build site rather than Keith's. Being a complete engineering oik I'm a little reluctant to post my efforts on the Forum, but on reflection perhaps seeing my many (laughable) attempts to get things right might 'encourager les autres'. If I can do it anyone...

    Keith Baker's Southern gt on the build

    Hi Keith, I was down visiting Mick yesterday. Lots of prep work being done to your car to cover all those detailed bits that IVA inspectors like to be picky about. Here here to Nick's comment about Mick being our secret weapon! I was very impressed with your build I must say and took the...

    Taken the plunge

    Good morning gentlemen, Thank you very much for bothering to reply to my introduction. 40bud: thanks for the hint - I'll need to get the necessary mods done on my Renault transaxle. Malcolm and Dave - it's reassuring to hear that you have had good experiences with fuel injection. Brett, Andy...

    Taken the plunge

    Hi, my name is Neil. I've just finished and IVA'd a cobra and found that I've been bitten by the car building bug. What next? The Ultima is a very professional package and certainly goes, but somehow doesn't look quite right to my 50+ eyes! GT 40 manufacturers seem to be coming and going...
