    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    I’ve been looking forward to starting this thread for years and it’s finally here! This first post will be long winded, but gives some background on how my whole SLC build came about. Building a car has been a childhood dream of mine for as long as I can remember. Back when I was a kid, it...

    Mike's Build

    Haven't been the best poster of information on any of my former projects, but going to give this one a shot. It would be nice to have a photo history of the build - I don't tend to be good at keeping up with pictures either so maybe this will force me to do it. I have been modifying cars and...

    Here's a loaded question: Which engine would be best for an RCR build?

    I know, I know. I'm probably going to get 100 different responses with 100 different opinions. But I gotta ask. Looking at possibly a GT40 build. I was originally thinking of a 428FE engine for a build. But I was barraged with people telling me that I'll be tearing up the transmission in no...

    Paul's RCR GT40 build

    I purchased the RCR GT40 that Scott B. from Texas had started. Have wanted a GT40 for quite a while and when Scott said he would sell his I had to do it. Thanks to Scott for letting it go. Fran, Vicki and Kristin at RCR have been very helpful so far in getting things going. I've been building...

    A new SLC is hitting the streets & Tracks

    Where to start? OK, the beginning. Since I was a little kid I have loved (and worked on ) cars. As an adult I have almost always had "a project" car to keep me busy. I got into drag racing for a while and then about 10 years ago (thankfully) I found track driving. Since then I have been...

    Well I've gone and done it the order is in for the chassis pack from GT-Forte so now I've got to get everything ready for the build starting with my shed that is trashed at the moment and got motorbike parts all over the place. This is my first ever car build but my son races mini bikes so...

    Post 75 302

    I'm in the early days of my build and still working on what components to use a quick look for 302s and there very sparse on the ground I know it's ideal to use a pre 75 but how much difficulty will it cause buying a newer engine with emissions etc just so I'm not restricted to such a small...

    SLC Build Manual Cover

    I'm just one of those people that works better with a hard copy of a manual to reference, so I took the time to make a Word document of the entire build manual. I organized it, added a footer with page numbers as well as an index for easy referencing. When I punched the holes and put in a...

    How difficult is it to build a detached garage?

    I've been calling around for quotes on a 3 car detached garage expansion and people are trying to tell me $110-$150k. Da faq? For somebody with limited craftmanship skills, how dificult is it to build a garage? I imagine pieces like electrical and foundation should be subbed out, but the rest...

    My SLC Work Benches With A "Custom" touch

    While reading Cam's blog, he had a picture of how many boxes of parts and such he has to store while building his and that got me thinking... So while waiting for my SLC kit to be built, I decided to build some dedicated work benches for it. After getting them completed this weekend, late...

    Hi from Louisiana

    My name is John. These past couple months I have discovered the SLC. And I can not get it out of my mind. I am hooked. I would love to see one in person and talk with a builder. Y'all are a special breed and hope to build one some day.
