Your car is beautifully clean and tasteful, almost to the point of being obscenely so! :laugh3:
I'm curious about the screen and cover you put over your front brake duct. While I can see the desire to put something there, i.e. a screen, to keep rocks, bugs etc. from traveling through the system, it seems the slotted cover has blanked off the vast majority of your air inlet, essentially defeating the purpose of the whole thing.
Can you explain your line of reasoning with that particular modification? I know that Ford decided that ducting ambient air from the front end directly to the rotors was over-cooling them, and with the Mk II they changed the air source to behind the radiator, so that the brakes were being cooled with heated air. That might make sense at Le Mans, where brake temperatures are truly stratospheric, and the thermal shock of going from surface-of-the-sun hot, to very cold, again and again, would take its toll over time. However, at our levels, I would think that the temperature delta would be considerably less, and ambient air cooling would work just fine (and would be preferable to no cooling at all).
I look forward to hearing your explanation of your decision to blank off most of the cooling duct. :inquisitive:
And please continue sharing as your already-beautiful car continues to improve, day after day! :thumbsup:
Look above in the Video and Pictures Buffet; GT40 Restoration photos; at GT40 MkII 1032. The front air intake is located in the same place as is Steve's P2125. The air is picked up from two inlets in the front of the nose and routed to the disc. For our normal driving I agree that the front brake cooling isn't necessary, but if you track the car it would greatly help. After a day at VIR, my brake oil needs to be changed without the disc cooling. I should probably should always do that after that kind of hard driving. Screens would help keeping the stones out of the ducting.
