Sean's RCR GT40 build

I wasnt able to find an AC compressor bracket that would mount low, so I decided to make one. I made it from 3/16" Stainless flat bar and gave it a slight polish to match the aluminum bits on the front of the engine.

This was the first I got to play with my new plasma cutter, I dont know how I got along without one before.

Hey Sean, do you have the file for that AC bracket? I cant find a bracket anywhere that works with the windsor and the SD7 to drop down low.

I mounted a battery kill switch on the chassis in front of the rear tire. I think it came out looking pretty good and keeps the wires hidden. Available space is definitely becoming scarce on this chassis.

I tested the fuel tanks… found I left a couple lines loose, but other than that the fuel system seems to work great.

I also got the rear axles installed.
I’m hoping to go for a test drive the next time I’m home. I just need to bleed brake and slave cylinder lines, then finish installing the Hartwell latches to make it happen. :cool:

You might consider replacing the socket head cap screws holding the panel in place with AN-526 or even AN-525 button head machine screws. It is a matter of personal taste, though.

Hi Neal,

I actually tried butten head cap screws and didnt like the look, I found the socket heads looked a bit cooler.Although that might change once I have all the panels finished.

Sean
Either one works just fine; it only a matter of preference. :) You might put a flat washer under each of the socket head cap screws- the usual practice.
 
We need more selfie views of you hitting it and your head flying back and eyes bugging out.

Awesome. I was the same first drive in the 535 hp Cobra.

LOL. I thought it was funny after watching to see how it pinned me back to the seat. It was a blast to test drive it. I’m excited to get it out at a place where I can get into it a bit

Where are the safety glasses??

I wish I had worn some. I had a lot of dust flying out at me that was hidden in the chassis.
 
I forgot about the blinding fiberglass and metal grinder dust the first time over 25 MPH. After that, I spent 15 minutes with the leaf blower cleaning out all of the nooks and crannys.

I see roll bar padding in your future! I have a similar bar in my AP project...but luckily I sit pretty low in the seat.

I plan to make some big modifications to this roll bar. Everything is way too close to my head. I am actually debating on removing the entire front portion if I can’t get the bars in a position that makes me feel safe.
