    M20 Dreaming

    Finally got the repair on the rear clip finished after the small fire from the test day. Lined the under side with fire resistant heat proofing and wrapped the rear wing. The wrap has not gone as well as hoped and will probably come off and get painted at a later date, I have a magazine coming...

    M6B Tragic

    The car looks great Udo, not too far away from a start up ?? The one thing I miss is the workshop I had for the main part of the build but the rent wasn't do-a-ble long term and I live in suburbia with a 600m site so no room for a decent shed.

    All the original cars have them plumbed in the bottom so I don't see that being an issue, I'm back on deck so will courier the flanges on Monday. Cheers Leon.

    McLaren M20#73

    Hi guys, on the under tray, I have done that on my car for 2 reasons. 1) it protects the oil lines that have to run back under the oil pan. 2) it ties the bottom of the car together. The original cars have an oil pan that ties to the bell house and the front engine plate (which I have) but I...

    Hello! and Ferrari 512M project

    The 512 has always been a favorite of mine as well but trying to find Ferrari bits in NZ would be a mission. I can tell you from experience that making patterns to make parts is satisfying but so much work if you can buy the parts then do it. Looking forward to watching the progress. Another...

    Hi Mesa, you are right about the rear wing on both counts it should be blue and it will be I just haven't got to it yet. It is the body and thinking about it today with the fact that I have had to change the shape of the rear deck to sort the heat issue kind of makes the other issue meaningless...

My mates don't notice it and when i point it out they tell me I'm being pedantic. So my question is can you guys see it. If you have noticed then I'm picking you're being polite or...
