Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I added two more "ears" to the front bulkhead for the front shock and upper control arm mounting points (per photos of real T-70s).

New fittings and bushings for the front pivot points. Machined aluminum & brass with steel reinforcements.

Both arms with upgraded front bushings and adjusters.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I started drawing up the calipers. This is an inboard half. Still more details to be added.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

More details and the other (outer) side.
The rotors will be machined; I just wanted a blank to make sure it would all fit later.
Now to make the pads...

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

The start of the aluminum rims. Some T6-6061 stock and a wooden angle block with 22 and 27 degree angles cut into it. The block was indexed to the tilt-table as a secondary measure to ensure the angles were uniform on all the wheels.

First round of cutting; this will be a rear.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

This is a rear… Still raw and needs to be refined.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I decided a more modern set of calipers would not only look cooler, but also be more appropriate for the car with some of the other upgrades it is getting. I made the Wilwood retrofits for the C3 Corvette calipers I made earlier. They use the same pads.
