I wouldn't worry about this Ryan, I'd sat in 3 original GT40s before I even noticed itGreat photos James. It’s an angle you almost never see of these cars.
my dash, which I presume is ex KVA still has the angled front edge on top to meet the bottom of the windscreen frame but the lower edge is missing. Still trying to decide what I will do in that area. Given that I am quite tall some extra knee clearance would be nice.
My Uncle Brian had a Shadow-ised Vincent Rapide, lovingly restored by him over a number of years. The bike below isn't his (he died in 1997) but very similar.

He had new stainless spindles made for the Girdraulic forks, but the clearances were too tight, and on a rippled section of tarmac on the South Circular the forks locked solid and threw him down the road. I still have his made-2-measure Lewis Leathers jacket with the patch repairs resulting from that "off". He always seemed like such a big guy...but I'm now finding the jacket a bit too snug!
Anyhow, you folk down-under can never leave well alone...see this gorgeous beauty:-
Apologies for thread drift.
What happened to this engine? It sounds amazing haha. I want it.Hi Jim,
Long time no hear but I trust you are well.
I have never used YouTube before so here is an unedited little movie of Alistair's car when he started her up for the first time.
There has been another engine change since this video was taken.
My car is still not finished yet so it's best to look at the thread to get an idea of what we have been up to.
