Hoping to have shocks next week. Engine is a ways out and wheels and tires are still up in the air. I swear one of these years I am not doing anything to the car so I can start driving it in May and not July for a change.
Hi Mike, Would you be able to give some details on the blue protective tape you have used, I have a similar need for my project, I tried extra long life masking tape, but found after a few weeks it was impossible to remove.
Looks just like any Painters Tape that you can buy at the home improvement stores.... 3M makes it as well as a number of other manufacturers.. I switched over to Frog-Tape as it holds just a little bit better and never leaves a residue when removed...
Your engine sounds good.. You may miss some of the torque of your old engine but the reduction in weight will have a net positive effect...
Sorry I missed out on the engine but maybe I helped motivate the other buyer when I offered to pay your asking price when he was low balling. I moved on and bought another GT40 Mk I by ERA. New and never had the Certificate of Origin removed from the sealed plastic bag the ERA sent it in. Oh and it has Inglese Weber 48 IDAs installed. Compared to a 4 bbl carb they look intimidating, but if you look at it as broken elements they aren't bad to work on...well at less I think? Show us the finished product when you can..Your in prime driving time
