Mark;

Are you sure that you have enough clearance between the rear bodywork and the carb linkages? A stuck throttle is not fun. :eek:
 
Hi Neil ,no clearanceing has been done yet , the dec lid was catching the carb banjos and stoping it from siting down so we sorted that out for now so we can drop it down to check clearance on the exhaust.throtle linkage is clear and good

Oh you lovely man!!
I’m just tacking the bundle of snakes together.
Thanks for the pics mate I know I said it before (a couple of years ago!) but I must get up there for a look.
Great work, for God’s sake keep posting.

Bob.
 
Thanks Joel ,that was one of the things I wanted to try and copy from the originals,it will never be an original or even close but there was some things I really liked about the originals that I wanted to incorporate into my car eg carbs,peddle box ,steering wheel ,gulf arches,header tank ,just small acsent pieces that will make the car just that little bit different if that makes sense and with the help of people of this forum it can be done for which I am very grateful. More pics for bob

HI Mark, one or two medical issues but apart from that everything OK, sorry I missed your call but to answer your question, no I don’t have the Hartwell latches, had to have the radiator re-cored for the second time, she is an old girl after all, been very busy with the paintings, just finished a one man show at the RAC club but no GT40 paintings unfortunately.
 
Hope the new year brings better news with regards to the medical stuf ,if you need a lift with the car any time just give us a shout theres nothing worse than struggling on you own ,hope to see you soon will have a chat about a 40 painting .
