Bloody love that photo, Yisa has a career in photography ahead of her…Have been absolutely over the moon with our new GTD. Just returned from the Le Mans classic (albeit with our range rover as we were riding shotgun with our friends GT40's and Daytona Coupe's). Going to take ours next year to mark the 10th anniversary of the classic.
Had to address a small water leak which was hard to track down but understandable given some of the older pipes were rubber and a little past their date.
Car coolant system now duly flushed and modern silicon replacement hoses fitted.
Enjoying every minute were in her ;-)
Pic's attached from our early Morning run back to Blighty in Northern France following Paul and Emma's stunning SGT and the new pipes on our modest GTD rad.

So you are not leaving the Uk early next year, as you mentioned earlyer?Going to take ours next year to mark the 10th anniversary of the classic.
Looking forward to meet again next year, as we will bring our GT40 also.On a side note, my wife and I will be leaving the UK early next year so finished or not, the car will have to be sold as Thailand has a 300% import duty on any vehicles perceived value so I cant take with us.
Hi Bud, those pics are from my GT Forte which I sold on. No I have a complete GTD.Nick - sorry to hear of the radiator issues.
in regard to the electric water pump and restrictions at 5he thermostat..
It appeared in one of your videos that you did connect the thermostat bypass hose - so this would alleviate any issues in regard to a deadhead stoppage to the electric pump.
Also, if you do decide to drill the thermostat, I do this in the main body of the thermostat, close to the sealing edge of the stat to housing. A single 1/8“ hole works wonders for getting air out of the system.
