    GT40, about to make the leap!!

    I am about to start a complete GT40 rebuild having bought the KVA advertised on this forum a couple of months ago. Anyone in the (Greater!) South Midlands area with experience or with a current car? Thought it would be useful to chat periodically or look at a complete car. I’m looking for the benefit of experience which you can’t beat! Learning on the job is fine but it’s not the most efficient!
    I am going to strip the old girl first. There will be a BMW V8 to get rid of if anyone is interested. It also came with a 302 which I intend to put back in.
    It’s a complete car but a bit of a state. Nothing that can’t be fixed

    He was indeed, but is so busy with his job he has asked me to crack on! His mum is convinced it was all a conspiracy by me to get a GT40 project!!!
    Looking forward to it. Should keep me busy through the winter.
    I am planning to record the rebuild. Maybe a thread on here.

    A thread would be good! I was building one a number of years ago til a knee op put paid to any further progress and I sold it, too impatient to wait.
    Cheers,

    That's the trouble with you Sailors, long hair, quick zips and, Oohh, look at the size of that!!

    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Snake Torque is always wanting good build features which is very often in short supply. This would be an excellent ongoing feature until complete!
