              I thought you were (one of) the guys that had the GT40.

              Fucking awesome collection and you attention to detail on this build is to be admire. Great work dude.

                Time for an update... A couple of weeks ago, I thought "the car's coming home soon, I'd better give the exhaust a bit of a polish".



                I soon discovered that the exhaust was in worse condition than I realised. The back of the rear muffler was pushed in and there were cracks near the front muffler. Someone has had this thing slammed (bro) in its past.



                I dragged out the TIG and then spent bloody ages fixing it. My TIG welding skills are not fantastic.




                I then hit it with a wire wheeled angle grinder wheel. I've been picking bits of wire out of my feet (and the kids) ever since. After a coat of paint.



                Next on the radar was the ATTESSA pump. Pretty happy with how this turned out.

                  And finally... this happened!










                  Finally she's back home! It looks amazing!! I'm pretty sure that original budget was blown, they found a few extra issues along the way, but do it right and do it once. I'm very happy. A massive shout out to Dean and the team at Bridgen's Restorations and Robbie Goddard from For the Drivers who has sourced most of my parts and recommended Dean. Dean got in Robbier's preferred detailers on Saturday. They said the paint was perfect. One of the best they have seen.

                  OK, so what's next:
                  • Finish the ATTESSA pump and bolt it to the diff
                  • Drop the subframe and fit the diff, driveshafts, etc
                  • Fit fuel lines, brake lines, etc
                  • Rebuild the Brembo calipers and fit them.
                  • Bleed all the various fluids and get it on the road
                  Happy days!

                                I managed to spend most of the day in the garage. Didn’t make as much progress as I hoped though. I tackled the fuel and brake lines. I remade these in like November last year. I forgot I had snapped several bolts removing the old lines, so had to spend a fair bit of time drilling out snapped bolts. Grrr. Pretty much any M5 bolt was guaranteed to snap on this thing. On the plus side, it looks so good and clean on the underside
