    I hadn't received the tinted ones in time for the video, I've got them off to the side waiting for a few hours when I can install them. The difference with and without tint film is incredible to say the least, particularly up at elevation where I'm at now. Mileage - this year's been a bit...

    I'm not dead - just been super busy! The local Cars & Coffee crew came out and shot some footage of my car and interviewed me. Give them a like and subscribe! Photo credit: @303perspective Drone footage: @4blades_digital, @snipesfpv Shot for @cocarsandcoffee Edited by @jevandass

    AVOID HCF - I paid them $1200 for a synchro 5 MONTHS ago. They have not delivered and will not refund me. Threatened me with their lawyer.

    Full disclosure – I’ve known John at HCF personally for several years now. We spent a great deal of time talking about SLCs at first and I’ve watched from the sidelines as he’s grown HCF. This is the first I’ve heard of this situation; after reading this thread I reached out to John to try and...

    Tinted Lexan Windows - Please?

    I'd be down for a set of mid-level tint.

    Air Conditioning Effectiveness

    After ~3 years the tint on my driver's side is so bubbled I'm about to take it off. The passenger side isn't as bad; the driver's side was exposed to sun more than the passenger. The difference tint makes is noticeable. I'm tempted to try it again with the tint being applied to the OUTSIDE -...

    Kurt H (hoffkm) SL-C build thread

    I love to see all the carbon projects, if I can carve out some more time I’ve got a few more ideas I’d like to try out. These projects are never finished but I’ll admit once the car is driving it’s a tough trade between enjoying the car and working on it! Looking good!

    Kurt H (hoffkm) SL-C build thread

    Feedback I’ve gotten is cutting too much in this area makes the door less stiff and may lead to cracking. If you do remove that triangle take a look at adding reinforcement. Practically, you don’t need to look through that portion of the door and if you put tint on your windows it’s almost...

    Converting RHD SLC to LHD

    The larger diameter rotors go in the rear. I’ve heard that some folks with the CF5V wheel option need to run spacers in the front to avoid rubbing on the caliper.

    Nose hinge

    I've tried - not sure when they'll be available for order for past builders. It's been a few months since I last contacted RCR, however.

    Bad ass Kurt, good luck! I think I went low tech and taped my GoPro to the dash for my inaugural run. Nothing beats that feeling of moving the car under its own power for the first time!

    Converting RHD SLC to LHD

    The rear glass vents let out a tremendous amount of heat. After a hard drive, idling the engine, I can’t keep my hand above the louvre openings for very long due to the amount of heat coming through. In motion the engine gets a good amount of airflow (if you don’t close the bottom out).

    Dusty's SLC Build

    Dusty - I used that same crimping tool for my AC hoses. Take my advice - don’t pay attention to the marks and compress your fittings until the tool bottoms. I first went up to, and only up to, the mark - every single fitting leaked. I then went 1/16”-1/8” past the mark - I recently found one...

    Converting RHD SLC to LHD

    It’s a plastic housing, you can push it up against the underside of your dash area and secure it as it is, the housing will deform enough to accommodate. Try it on a flat sheet of aluminum and see if it’s flush enough for what you need. I wouldn’t recommend cutting the housing as you suggest...

    CamT's build thread

    Rich - I tried to minimize the amount of fiberglass I removed to keep as much stiffness as possible. I used fasteners to install everything as I figured I would want to remove the back at some future date - came in handy when I re-dipped the car. I have photos and a description of what I did...

    CamT's build thread

    The weather's starting to get chilly out in this part of the country and I felt the need to make a few changes. On a recent trip to the gas station I spilled gasoline on my dip and didn't have any paper towels nearby - the dip took a bit of a beating as standard plastidip isn't fuel resistant...
