Hi Gary, Have you been given a date for delivery from Andy yet? Would be keen to hear how you get on, getting it over here, as looking at the TSC kit also. Just trying to work out how much it will cost to get it to my garage, from the UK.
Cheers Adrian

I did ask him about your order, as I had read you were waiting on one, and to get some idea of time scale, he smiled and said " it'll be alittle long then he thinks"
Who are you using to ship it over? is it coming in a container?
I'm thinking of seeing how much the guy building the TSC in Leicestershire wants for his unfinished project, not quite what I want, but would save a long wait.
Cheers

I’m not sure how it is arriving to be honest, something to sort out once things start moving. I’m going for the “poor man’s option” space frame chassis, Windsor 302 and Audi transaxle. These have kept me busy for the last year although I am starting to get itchy feet. What is Andy’s lead time at the moment?

Last time I emailed him (about 5 weeks ago) it was over a year late time

You guys know this stuff inside and out. Any you advice you can share is greatly appreciated.
I’ve been out of the country for two weeks so all has been on pause. I’m ready to hit play.

That price seems pretty steep. I might try calling around....maybe see if Fran at RCR has any suggestons/leads. I assume a Graz can be put in an SPF chassis, but I don't think I've ever seen it. But if Levey was planning on doing it, I guess it can be done.

It does seem high but I’m wondering if that price included the clutch and other parts. Thanks.
Hi, Whats your problem with the GTD ? Frank ( UK )

Hello Frank, the shifter broke. It was really struggling to get into gear and as I was trying to reverse the stick snapped off.

I either need to have the broken piece re made, and the existing shifting mechanism tuned. Or get a replacement shifting mechanism for the UN1.

The car is RHD/RHS. Not easy finding people that know how to work these cars is Miami.
Hello, is there a phone number and a good time to call and chat about your CAV?
Thanks

Do you have a VASS engineer lined up to assist you? I know a few and one in particular is well versed with GT40.

I have spoken with a few VASS in general over the year. I have also been a member/committee member off the VCBG as well and have connections through that group as there is a lot of clubmans that get built. I want to join the local GT40 club and cobra clubs in Melbourne to see if i can gain any incite there.

this is why I have drawn the fuel crossover chassis at this point as i may need to have a ADR compliant seat installed.
Just testing the message service. I just read your build log. Nice work. I'm also in Melbourne eastern suburbs, Wonga Park. Are you a CAD designer? I am, in the auto industry, so read your log with interest. I like what your doing. Big challenge. Have you looked at what CCD and Gelesco Motorsport do? Very impressive. Recently restarted my research into a GT40 kit. Researching and dreaming.

I last worked Auto Industry in 02.
I try and use photos of known original Abbey cars where possible as that is what I am trying to recreate. I am not certain on the Tennant, Gelscoe, CCD, GOX, Mirage, SPF changes. No doubt mine will also have its own unique idiosyncrasies that will crop up.
