Hello Togethet
We started with placing the engine Control boxes. Is there someone who also has a roush 427IR who could give some help about the wiring of the engine? Are there some wiring shemes of the engine existing?
Thanks for all the help.

I can't help thinking that the '40 might have evolved in a similar way had it kept racing in Europe. There's nothing really radical on there is there?

The 'wide hip's must have looked pretty startling when Gulf bolted them on too in 1968...not to mention 'periscopes', roof air intakes and all the other little bits and pieces that appeared before it got frozen a little too quickly..

I think it's brilliant and I want one.....

Urs, Your car keeps getting better.
Good work. I am looking forward to seeing it when it's finished.
What colour scheme have you chosen?
Cheers, Gus.

Urs, I quite like the idea you have with Black and Red or Orange, but maybe just some subtle pinstriping? Would you get the calipers to match the stipes colour, with maybe black wheels with the pinstriping ont he rims?

I also thought about that for painting, i think i will do some drawings with paintshemes. Or maybe someone has a good idea ;).
Here some Pictures of the front Clip, which we can open without movement of the splitter. But the opening is limited until a Point.

Transmission and engine around 290 kg . The Wheels are also heavy.... I will weigh it at the final disassembly for finishing the monocoque.
