    Roaring Forties #091

    As soon as I got the panels home I started re-assembly, the paint color I picked from a BASF chip, it has a fine silver metal flake and looks much lighter in the sun, I'm very happy with it.

    Roaring Forties #091

    Well its been a long time since a post. I have been continuing to work on my car. I finished the body work in December and 8 weeks ago I removed the panels, rented a truck and took them to a paint shop. They did a great job and I was able to watch on two separate days of shooting in the paint...

    It's Official - New GT

    Hello, I love the car, think it's a great step forward. They state it will be a much lower production than the previous car and higher price, so I don't think they need to make a R/H drive. Dan

    Ignition Crossfire on 302HO

    Hi Guys, I got the engine fired up on my GT and am suffering little induction pops and sometimes in the exhaust. The engine is also surging as I'm sure it is sometimes firing at the wrong time on compression. I have tried routing of the wires as Ford calls for it. This seemed to help some but...

    Thanks Guys, Dave I bought a whole hide off ebay, I looked and the seller does not have any more of them. Their are many listings though for leather, I just used 3M yellow automotive super contact adhesive and several band-aids for my fingers after dealing with razor blades trimming the stuff!

    Good one on the paint job! LOL The pan clears no problem but I can not use the stock dip stick that comes with the pan.Will fabricate a "shorty" stick. I did level the engine and gearbox as much as possible in the chassis. The gearbox is a 016 Audi AFC box with a wave trac LSD.

    Care & Feeding of Knock-Off / On wheels

    Besides the wire, I may try a tube of Torque Seal. It is a thick liquid "paint" that is sold in small tubes and you paint a line of it between two surfaces. If it cracks the two parts have started to "shear" or loosen . We use it in aviation, would be intresting to see if it works well on...
