Rick's Wannabe KVA

Rick,
Things maybe different in the north country, but you may want to consider using the C-5 rather than the C-4. In the U S, they have stopped making the C'4 suspension stuff and replacement items are hard to come by. I had to replace one of the front spindles(bent) and it took a while. The geometry is a little different. I would have changed mine out but I was too far along when I heard the news.

Good to know, thanks, Bill.
 
Glad to see things rolling along Rick.

I had a fantastic time last weekend when I met up with Trevor in Manotick. We spent hours talking and looking at build photos and he treated (and it was a treat) me to a good long 45 minute run in the country in his car. It is a fantastic performer and handles incredibly. It was certainly a huge motivator for me to get my projects finished up. A friend tells me there is a burgundy GT40 in Orleans so our local community is larger than I thought.

Good luck and let me know if you need anything.

Is that the famous elusive '40 haunting Manotick you got a ride in?

As for a burgundy GT-40 in my neck of the woods, I'll definitely keep my eyes open but I haven't spotted one around here, hmmm.

However, if that's the case, then we have approximately four cars here in the area, enough to start the Eastern Ontario GT-40 Owners Club :)

I'm still pumped about getting the roof as I want to draw up the rollcage to FIA specs (just in case).

Let me know when you're going out in the car and I'll pop by on my bike...
 
Trial fitting of panels.

Scheduled for this August for media blasting and painting
while I source out all the miscellaneous suspension parts
to adapt C4 suspension to the chassis.

I also just picked up a set of seat shells from Bill H., very
happy to have that in order to determine the missing
chassis cross-member under the front seat flange...

It's been so long since I posted to the forum but yes, I'm still have the car which is booked to go into the shop for welding, media blasting, and painting.

I have the upper A-arm suspension sketched out but before I proceed with a scratch-built, would like to see if anyone out there in the community has some spare upper and lower front suspension members for an Integrity Coach Works chassis using Corvette C4 uprights.

More pics to follow as the build progresses...
