    Another project 56 Chevy

    Besides my Lotus build. I've decided to get back on track with my 56 Chevy pickup resto/mod. I've had it for over 20 years & had repainted the cab & front. But then got stalled by life (raising 3 boys etc). A couple of years ago I started to disassemble it again. For restoration but again got...

    Wheels! please chime in!

    Your wheels look nice. The BBS?Ferrari style looks good, you could probably have the centers powder coated/ painted gold. I've seen a lot of BBS wheels like that. I really like the black & gold color combination my self & painting my Lotus that way.

    Hello again - thinking of another GT40

    Nice E type (one of my wife's favs) it just depends on you as to which you'd prefer. I'm sure they drive differently. Being a mid engine Vs a front engine car. What anybody else would do in your situation is not important. You need to figure out what you want the car for? Or what you want to do...

    McCopy mk 5

    At that point it doesn't look like a lot of strength is required. Looks like mostly just the body work support?

    My Lotus build

    Ian not as bad as when it looked like this. What I call the "Chevron happy car look" LOL But once I get the two round intakes under the headlights & it's all painted the same color. I think it'll look more like this: Only my colors will be black & gold

    Radiator Venting Overboard

    Thermal expansion, the coolant has to go somewhere as it expands. You probably had the system "overfilled". Once it reached temp. Did it stop venting?

    My Lotus build

    I had been debating the looks of either a full width chin spoiler. Or the side wings like the T70 used. I made these up the other day & tried them on (only hot glued). I think I'll keep these. I'll need to make molds so I can replace them if/when they get damaged LOL I didn't want to just cut...

    McCopy mk 5

    Russell your estimates for the Rover sound way off. I'm building mine with 4 IDF wbers for way less than you're showing. With the carbs no worries about a computer.

    Part 2 of Don's Mk IV Build

    In talking to the guys at Coast Air Brush (my paint suppliers) the new urethane aren't nearly as touchy about over coating. Re-coating with like stripes or touch up. But the multiple painters pointing fingers at the other guy certainly can be a situation. These wraps & over lays they have now...

    I don't see any pictures. Just little green boxes. Is this an Ausy only thing or what? LOL

    Part 2 of Don's Mk IV Build

    Geesh how many months did they take? They don't want to take the responsibility? Maybe you're better off getting somebody else to do it. Certainly not a confidence instilling statement. Has it been buffed & polished? Maybe it's just the picture angles but it looks "satin" & not shiny.

    My Lotus build

    I know if I don't make the corrections in the plug. I'll just have to do it later in the final piece. I just get antsy to get to the next step. That getting antsy conflicts with my basic perfectionism LOL
