Ironically, when I was at VIR last week Val and I were discussing the rear sway bar. He walked into his office and pulled out his copy of the original design drawings. Its a book, kinda legal size, obviously old. It has all the schematics for everything (except the rear sway bar). I think he has it from working on originals in the past. He didn't think anything of it, thought it was funny how excited I was
I think I have a copy of those! Not the engineering drawings that are blue prints that you'd build something, but a large collection of drawings of the various parts. You couldn't build anything from them, but they are neat to look at. I'll have to see if I can find them. Someone from the forum sent them to me many years ago and now I remember them. Photocopies, bound in a three ring binder.
BTW - I was informed that the fellow that was selling the CDs with drawings last year, "Paul Drawings", may not have legally possessed what he was selling. From my extremely limited understanding he illegally obtained the drawings from a third party, made copies, and sold them. I have since reviewed his profile on this forum and found he did send approximately 40 PM's in his brief stay on GT40s.com but he cleaned out his mailbox, changed his email to [email protected], changed all contact info, and flew the coup. Now, before anyone gets riled up Icannot read his PMs or login as him, I could just see his message statistics. Just passing along info as I learn it and quite naturally, take the info with a grain of salt.
