Re: Brett\'s RS GTD

Rear Uprights in. Note Roy has been lightening the standard GTD upright, it uses slightly narrower plate and has some areas removed. You actually pick these up even when fuly assembled /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

I didn't realise how busy I had been until I saw when my last post was /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif Finally managed to get some time to work today. After picking up my brakes from Roy Smart, they are now nearly there. Panelling In as well. Other side tomorrow.

My god I didn't realise how long it had been, or how little work I had done on the car /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bash.gif However, finally got out to the garage this weekend and managed to get something done.

So the rad is trial fitted in place with the aircon condenser.

Managed, even with my lack of skills to make up a bracket to put the Steering Column in. he Column is from Mick Sollis at Southern GT and I have to say it is top quality.

I have to hold my head in shame that I really don't get enough time in the garage...

Managed a few hours this and last weekend and have finally got round to shortening the lower sterring column. Resulting in a major milestone (for me anyway) with a set of molegrips... turning the steering and something actually happening :O)

The molegrips that brought such a big smile and one of the seats thanks to another GTD builder, Brian M.

Well, I took a risk and bidded on the Kennedy adaptor plate that Lynn noticed on eBay. First results are promising with my 01X.
