    Coyote engine help needed

    Holley sells carburetor manifolds, both single and dual quads. They look tall to work in a '40, though, https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sne-829011/overview/ Have you considered running EFI with used parts? You might be able to pick up a harness and ECU from a wrecked Mustang for the same...

    Turn signal switch

    I used this in my FFR Cobra. http://www.norcal-cobras.com/store/russ_garage/mk3/mk3tss.html I'm hoping to do the same in the '40 but I don;t know if there's room for it or not yet. Charlie

    Bryan's GT-Forte build

    Hi Bryan, Thanks for the info. Yes, I'm in the US in southeastern MA. No, the kit didn't come complete, I'm missing several parts which I'm still trying to get. Charlie

    Bryan's GT-Forte build

    Looks good Bryan. What did you use for your table top? Is that laminate countertop? How's it working for you? I bought the same chassis kit early this year but I haven't started the build yet. The build table is the first order of business and I haven't decided what to do yet. Mine is most...

    Anyone having issues with GT Forte?

    I'd have to look up what I paid. It was over 10 years ago. I'm ashamed to admit how slow my progress has been. After an enthusiastic start, I haven't done anything with it for years until recently. I don't know about shipping; Bill is local and he delivered the parts to me. I'm sure he...

    Anyone having issues with GT Forte?

    Dave, I bought a complete Mk I body including the dash and seat shells from Bill Hough several years back. Wix.com composites created by datonabill based on blank website | Wix.com I'm happy with what I got from him. He's a great guy to deal with. Charlie

    GT40 Body Model

    His work is amazing. I've done a lot of CAD work but never any complex surfacing like that. Well done! I started designing a space frame chassis a while back and I would love to have a copy of his body model to put on it. I have a complete MkI body and dash in the garage and I would be...

    A real place to work

    Great job on the garage. I know what it's like to do without one. Years ago I did a partial restoration on a Triumph Spitfire in my driveway; I covered it with a tarp when I wasn't working on it. Could you post some more details on the heat/AC unit? I could use something like that. Thanks...

    Weber Tuning Tutorial - On YouTube

    I totally agree, for both cars and bikes those AFR meters are worth their weight in gold. I just used mine to tune my 72 Harley after a carb change. This is the best it's run in the 20+ years I've owned it. Much easier than guessing or trying to read spark plug color. I love the look of...

    Smithy 3-in-1

    I don't have any experience with the Smithy product but I bought a Rockwell-Delta lathe and a Bridgeport mill used through Craigslist for half the money of the Smithy. That's what I suggest if you have the room. Both are 3-phase but I bought a static phase converter from Enco for $125 and they...

    UK Driving tips

    Same thing happens here with the first snowfall. The funny part is most of the vehicles spun off into the ditch are 4-wheel drive pickups and SUVs.

    vette c4 front suspension point dimensions

    The measurements I took were on an early one (1986). I bought the car as a potential donor but changed my mind and sold it. Charlie

    vette c4 front suspension point dimensions

    I've had several PM requests for the C4 front suspension dimensions so I'll post them here. I took the best measurements of the mounting points that I could with the stuff on the car so I can't guarantee the accuracy but they should be close. It was a few years ago that I did this, I may have...

    Perpetual solar powered flight

    That's the secret, methane fuel cell backup power. It would have to be a "non-smoking" flight, though.

    It's How You Say it...

    Breasts are like GT40s; even the fake ones are fun.
