Thanks! I'll send you more details on my expereince w/ Active Power Cars (Chris Ardern), but high level if I were to build another GT40, I'd choose them again.Peter,
That car looks great. Would you be able to PM me your experience with Active cars, and the quality of the kit, issues you ran into?
I'm looking at different vendors so would like to hear why you chose Active.
BTW dad would be proud!!
Glad to hear it! If you're looking for more details, I use a few different mediums differently:Great job, thanks for taking the time to document your build. I just ordered a chassis from Chris, I will probably refer to your thread for reference from time to time.
A few more updates:

2nd) peel the bottom paper off and spray a good amount of soapy water.

3rd: lay back down, use a rubber squeegee to get most of the bubbles out

4th: peel the top layer off, and continue to squeegee. I use low heat for any areas I need to wrap around an edge.

Yeah...I was really torn, cause I too loved the exposed bell-mouths; but I'm always working on something in the garage, so the idea of a small metal shard flying off and landing in there seemed too high of a risk not to add some type of protection.I like the function, too bad it reduces the "cool" factor for the stacks!
Nice execution though for sure!
Awesome pic with your daughter, gotta start them young!!
She was super excited. With COVID, she's spent a good amount of time in the garage w/ me...I've tried hard to find fun projects for her, but she's also been great at sweeping and organizing tools; she feels invested in the whole build, which is by far the best part.I have a very similar photo of our grand daughter sitting in my Ford GT...only she was a bit younger than Peter's daughter at the time. ;-)
