    #1032 @ le mans

    Hello Vintage photos show #1032 bronze/copper having a silver band along the upper side and front glass. Simply to cut down on sun glare or something more complicated?

    Hippo Ear Mounting?

    I see the hippo ears have a 1/8 inch "platform" on the mounting side. Is the intent to cut a hole in the side window poly for mounting, cut the platform off and mount on top of the poly, or just mount as is on top of the poly? How far forward/aft is best position for most? Thanks

    Why did I do this?

    I recall seeing a bunch of pictures at different times of uses for the compartment immediately behind the driver in the "sponsom" (if the is the correct word). And some discussions on what was done with that space. I had made some notes, and found a cover and cut a hole and having some time...

    Has anyone heard from Andrew Booth of gt40goldparts.com ???

    I was working on some things with Andrew, he has always been a tricky man to track down due to all his commitments, however his phone has been cut and he is not replying to emails? More out of concern than anything else, has anyone heard if he is ok?

    A door question

    For all you owners out there. I'd like to cut the roof of my Lotus Europa the way the GT40 is. They share much the same design in the doors except the roof cut out. The same head room problem getting in & out of the Lotus is I'm sure what prompted Ford to bring the door tops into the roof. The...
