    MK2 replica Ken Miles tribute build

    My car is currently being resprayed with paint provided by PPG to the 12854 Arcadian Blue colour. This is very much paler than the gulf blue when you put the two cars side to side. Dave

    GT40 Mk2 XGT-2 rear screen mesh size

    Steve, I do not have the dimensions to hand and the car is away from home at the moment so I can not measure. It is aluminium and is slightly rounded as I think from period images the original frame looks rounded as is that on the restored 1046 (my picture from Le mans 2016 attached). I have...

    External mirrors

    Udo, I use SPA GT mirrors with convex lens. I have found these to be excellent for both road and track use giving good rear visibility. I have mine attached through the side windows onto a bracket bolted to the door to minimise stress on the window if they get knocked. As well as holes for...

    Mk11B cars in 1967 also had aysymetrical doors with the drivers door retaining the roof cut out section and the passenger door just opening at the top of the window leaving the roof in place. I believe I read somewhere it was to make the mechanics life easier. Dave

    Roundel lights

    Brian, My theory on the two lights on rear clip is that they must have given some minimal illumination when changing drivers as there is nothing much they could illuminate as they were fitted in roughly similar positions on all 8 Mk11 at Le Mans. Main differences appear to be that the Holman...

    RCR40 MK2 pictures?

    It looks like there are 2 types of MK1 front in use with different size arches. The attached picture shows both styles in one shot. It does however seem to vary dependent on the angle of the picture as you will see when comparing shots of cars I took turning off of track at Goodwood. I am...

    RCR40 MK2 pictures?

    Those all look like Mk1 noses to me. A true Mk11 nose does not have the central NACA duct. It does appear to be difficult to tell based on the wheel arch humps but when you see them next to each other it is obvious. I have attached some pictures of Mk1 and Mk11 at Goodwood 2013 all taken in...

    RCR 40 Suspension components

    Scrap that. Much too large. Reviewing Chevy parts lists again comes up with ES800743/ES800744 (Chevy W3500) however appears to be only joint that there are no quoted dimensions for! Probably safer to wait and see what RCR says.
