Welcome to GT40S Jason. That’s a awesome looking 40 you’re building. I like the way you have all your future projects on it mapped out. Thanks for sharing and the more pictures the better.
Enjoy the forum !!!
Regards Brian
 
Hi Jason Tom Fuschetti here, I see a real work of art when I see right hand drive . I tell people if you want left hand drive buy a Toyota MR2 , or a Fiero .A GT40 with left hand drive , you might as well get a mid engine Corvette instead . You will never know the true feel of driving a piece history until you wind out the real deal . Watch Why the 69 Gulf GT40 is the greatest Le mans winner ever . Jacky Ickx has some pretty interesting insights on the GT40 you will like it

Hello, Nice to see GT40-P2430. I own the the Andretti/Bianchi #6 Tribute car GT40-P2431 unveiled at SEMA 2022 by Downforce Motorsports. Really like the unique features you are adding and planning to create for your P2430 car.

Hello Jason, Leonard here. I have the GT40 MKII that was right behind yours in production GT40 P2431. Great job on your build specs and now new additions. I am having some similar aluminum features created and one beinng an aluminum washer reservoir to replace that plastic one they come with...super ugly and you will have to modifiy it anyway if your addding brake cooling ducting. I am curious how you wired your rain light in. Did you create its own new power feed and dash switch or use tap into existing rear clam shell wiring? Also are you attending the GT40 Reunion?

Also, I got rid of those SPF headlamps and found NOS Cibie headlamps in France for $1K. Huge improvement!
