    Mk2 nostril hinges

    I was advised that the original part was the boot hinge from a Ferrari 275GTB as at: They look very similar to the ones James has. I used Mini Mk1 door hinges on my car and machined...

    Avon CR6ZZ. age of tire

    The date code looks like is just on one side of the tyre. I checked some old ones I have and on one side it has a code to the right of the AT code you mentioned above. To the left of the AT code is the E11 marking. My old tyres have 2814 which I assume means week 28 2014. Regards Dave

    Rcr 40-31

    Chris I am still running the Edelbrock EFI Pro-Flo 2 throttle body and injector hardware on my car (331 SBF). We got rid of the Edelbrock ECU and replaced it with an Omex 710 unit to provide sufficient mapping capability to pass UK IVA emissions tests. As well as this we fitted 2 4 cylinder...

    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...

    NEC show pictures of GT40 Enthusiasts Club cars

    Yes the Mk 1V was the Heron. The owner found he car about 3 years ago and undertook an extensive restoration. He had pictures of the car at Le mans with Ross Baker from I think 2016. Has also been raced at several European circuits including this year's Spa summer classic. Owner is from...

    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...
