    Purchasing Jim Dunham's GT40

    That is not my Coupe but one that factory Five was backing back in 2007. I have been gathering parts for the GT40 and if all goes well should be racing the Daytona Coupe this fall in Limestone Maine in the standing mile and a half. Regards, Mark

    Hammer for knock off's

    I am still waiting to get time to work on my cars but have purchased a 3 pound lead hammer mold. The hammer takes up less space than a deadblow and is fun to make. And with having a mold when it gets beat up it can just be recast. Regards, Mark

    New guy in Norfolk VA

    Steve, First, Welcome to the forum... I do not have my GT40 done but can tell you that the Daytona coupe is a great traveling car as you can carry a lot of luggage with you verses a GT40 or a Cobra with limited trunk space. Any of them can be built into a great driving car:thumbsup: And most...

    road suspension

    John, Please do not back off the adjusters on the coilovers as all that will do is lower your car. Are you running 17" wheels? if so a change to 15" wheels would make a tremendous difference in ride quality. My dad's Cobra has 17's and the ride is rough but I have 15's on my Daytona coupe and...

    Door hinges

    Frank, If you fab up a set of the original style door hinges for a T70mk3b I may be interested in a set as that is one of those items that really has me scratching my head. The continuation cars had a more substantial hinge that looks like half of a stainless steel offset boat locker hinge...

    Pro comp heads.

    Bob, Bare is the safest bet with those heads as they install very cheap valve train. My step son runs a set of those on his big block powered truck and they make good power for short money. Regards, Mark

    Trimming headlight covers

    I also use a large 6" X 48" belt sander but I remove the table and lay the belt horizontal and sand inline with the plexi glass at a slight taper. Remember sand a little and check often as these machines remove a lot of material in a hurry. The other method I use is a jointer but you need to...
