So far I have printed out all the drawings, just analysingthem trying to understand the details, brushing up on my third angle projectionect.
Then I spent a few nights creating a contents list in excel thatallows me to categorise each plan based on the section of the car that it dealswith. I can then filter on particular termsto bring up all the plans for a particular area of the car.
Next step will be to convert/redraw them in some form of cadprogram like Solidworks.
There is some double ups in the plans, maybe 5 of them youend up with 2 copies, slightly different file name and the scan is different butit’s the same plan
There is some full car assembly drawings which look tocontain a fair amount of the dimensions needed but I haven’t had a chance tocheck the scale and accuracy of these yet. These carry no drawing numbers, draft person of company details so couldhave come from any ware.There isnothing to indicate the origin of these.
It’s a good start though.
The pictures are mainly from CCD in NZ, and I think 99% ofthem can be found on this site.
Um, yes! But you can now undercut him at Euro 399!!!
Selling someone else's intellectual property at a discount is the internet way. I am sure FAV is hard at work looking for these prints.
Hell, I'll give you 20 bucks for a copy.
I'm interested too. It was searching for plans that originally brought me to the forum (years ago now). Now I know a bit more about what's involved but have really enjoyed finding out and following the build threads.
Are there any cars that have been built using the plans / do they come with any type of build credentials?
I belive that the plans are usable, but remember you need all drawings if you intend to make a exact clone of the Monocoque, belive me , I have been true this . So if you buy theese plans you can make a kind of monocoque, not complete, it might be good enough for most of the builders. You have to been true the building job from clean metal sheets before you really know what challenge this is, and not to mention the amount of tool you need to buy or make.
THis set of drawings was for sale here a few years ago from a UK guy called "Paul".
THe only different thing is that in hi ebay add he mentions "2 Very larges moderns CAD blueprints highly detailledfrom Ford Racing Division of the whole GT40 chassis and body, 100% accurate and very helpful for the roof and many other details on monocoque structure .You can scale it at any size."
