Here's a point to consider - one that I would like to do. Get Fran Hall to build his tub and then add an aluminim spider. Create more original looking front and rear mounts to replicate the original chassis. Mount your original body. Have you ever considered making a mono chassis ? Perhaps duplicate the SAFIR design in steel with a steel roof? Just another thought.
Maybe this will help. I have a CAV GT40 with Smith gauges. The fuel level gauge appears to be pretty close to correct. Each tank has a VDO sender that measures 69 ohms empty and 6.5 ohms full. The sender has no other markings, though I wish I had taken a photo when I had it out. HTH. -Steve
Hello Dimi I wonder if I could get some information for you about what mechanisms you used in the mirrors I also have a drb and it came with the mirrors half assembled I'm just trying to finish the car off and need to sort out the mirrors
Have you got any pictures of the "ears" on your car that transfer the air from your air intakes at the end of the clip fibreglass tube near the front bulkhead to the side I presume tube running to your dash vents. Hope that makes sense.
I was wondering if you would be willing to share some info about the ebay listing you won for the SLC? I wasn't able to find the completed listing on ebay, and I'd like to use the auction as a price point for the 2011 kit that just popped up in the For Sale section, if you wouldn't mind. If you have a link to the completed auction that would be awesome.
