    Met up with the New Zealand Cobra Club at Teretonga race circuit last weekend as they were mid-way through a tour of the South Island. Took one of their party for a spin on the parade laps. She apparently has petrol in her veins and has always wanted a Cobra when she gets older. However, I...

    Ryans Group Ten GT40 build - Body 5.

    The rubber ring you show looks exactly like my original ones. I used graphite to lubricate them so the balls moved freely.

    Electric water pump and digital controller question

    I have one in my GT40. It has worked extremely well, even in very hot weather and stop/start driving. However, things went a bit haywire a few months ago when water got into the system during a torrential rain event. This resulted in the pump and fans running full-on most of the time, which...

    RCR40 Mk1 Body cutouts

    All three cut out on mine. All give useful ventilation - sides to eyeball vents and centre to demister grille.

    RCR40 Mk1 Body cutouts

    I used a Dremel with cutoff wheel and grinder. Mark out carefully, then cut slightly undersize and finish with sand paper.

    My kind of girl

    Yep. Women who are into cars seem to be a rare breed indeed. My gal was the one who suggested I start down this crazy GT40 road in the first place, so she's a keeper.

    Maybe take a look on Trademe (the NZ equivalent of eBay) or put a request on there.

    Door striker drawing

    If you can find a Triumph Mayflower, of Phase I or 2 Vanguard, the striker plates are much the same.

    I have an Aviaid sump. Happy with it, although had to make a slight modification to fit the starter motor.

    Gold color for halibrand wheels???

    It is a two pot paint. Seems to be standing up quite well. However, I have bought a knock-off removal tool recently to reduce the risk of my chipping the paint with the lead hammer.

    Gold color for halibrand wheels???

    As pointed out, the colour on some of the original magnesium wheels is as a result of corrosion protection. However, I wanted to get something close on my aluminium wheels, so, after much searching I chose a Landrover colour (Maya Gold, code GAN) and am happy with the result. Photos show 1046s...
