BRIAN,

THEY DID NOT ASK FOR DETAILED BILLING... A PRICE FROM FRAN WOULD WORK.. CAN'T TELL YOU WHAT TO DO...YOU HAVE TO GO WITH YOUR CONSCIENCE.
ED,

I HAVE A CAV GT40 ... ALL I NEEDED WAS AN MSO AND PROOF OF WHAT I PAID FOR IT.. EASY!!!! THEY DO NOT EVEN LOOK AT THE CAR.. NO STATE INSPECTION... EASY ..

WHERE ARE YOU LOOKING TO MOVE TO ??? THERE IS AN SLC IN SARASOTA... I LIVE IN BRADENTON...

she is still red. I am trying to load pics but the term ran outa talent (often used in racing) comes to mind. I am on the east cost about 1.5 hour trip from Tampa. I get that way often for work. Can't wait to wake her up and shake her down at the tracks, likely Sebring.

SEBRING EVENT WILL BE IN DECEMBER.. I MAY GO.. I KNOW YOU WILL HAVE TO GO THRU THE FUEL SYSTEM, BRAKE SYSTEM .. PULL THE PLUGS AND SOAK THE CYLINDERS WITH A GOOD LUBRICANT.. THE TOP RING TENDS TO RUST TO THE CYLINDERS AND BREAKS WHEN YOU ROTATE THE MOTOR.. (LEARNED THAT ONE THE HARD WAY) . I AM REALLY HAPPY FOR YOU..

That is great contact info. Heck, for now just want sleeping beauty to get her kiss from the prince and awaken........
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.

I'm open to all. I did get a copy of the original drawings frombthe gent from France. It's not complete but enough to get a good start on a mono.
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
Hi Glenn,

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.

Thanks

I have taken some of what I think you mean Nick, but don't seem to be able to add them here. do you have WhatsApp?
I have been a bit quiet lately, so thought I should add some photo's and an update.
4 years since the build started on an Unfinished Project.

2 Test Drives, 1st drive 7th Dec 2019 to Calibrate VDO Electronic Speedo and 2nd drive for Brake Test last week, 8th of May 2020.

Mechanically finished, Interior part done, Body Work part done, No Paint yet.
Hi Mason,

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.
Hi mel, i read your are thinking of selling an unfinished kit. Could you send me the details please.

thanks

Bob

PS- I am new to this and have much to learn- if I respond to this message does everyone see it or does it just go to you?
