In the mean time, does anyone have a decent used 15-26-15 Avon I can buy to tide me over until the new ones arrive? I...

    Snap Vent Placement...

    I’m trying to decide the best placement for the snap vents in my side windows. I’ve read all of the threads regarding these vents but wonder what opinions might be out there about the best placement. Obviously, putting them in the small vent doors would be the easiest and less frightening...

    I'm finishing the last details of my RCR GT40 and have a question regarding the rear clip locating pins.

    RCR GT40 Original Rear Brake Ducts Install...

    I got these original style rear brake ducts with my RCR GT40 kit. I purchased the kit from an owner that passed away and don't know if these are RCR manufactured or not. I've tried to work them up into the body but can't seem to make them fit. To anyone with experience with these, should they...

    RCR GT40 REAR WINDOW

    I’m thinking about using safety glass as my rear window instead of the plexiglass supplied with my RCR GT40. My reason is to cut down on heat and noise in the cockpit. Who has experience in using real glass in this application? What type of glass did you use? How thick? Since the mounting of the...

    Source For Engine Turning...

    Hello! I've been trying to find someone who does engine turning, hopefully in the Los Angeles area. I made my 2 switch plates for the dash out of brushed stainless steel but thought having them engine turned would make them a little more special and period looking. I've done some internet...

    LED REVERSE LIGHTS

    Hello again! I was wondering what to use for reverse lights on my RCR GT40 build. Has anyone sourced any high output LED reverse lights for their GT40? Something round and would look like they belonged. Did any of the GT40's come with reverse lights? I'd love to see photos of what anyone has...

    Bundle of Snakes Advice

    The stainless steel bundle of snakes I received with the RCR GT40 project I purchased turned out not to fit the car. Everything is too high and too wide to fit under the fiberglass rear clip. I'm in the re-design stage of re-working the exhaust and am looking for opinions on what clearances...
