Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

The hood assembly is getting close to being done. The headlights and covers have been installed and wired. The winglets are installed too.

A little dust and dirt was added to the underside. The rest of the wiring will be added after the lower light assembly is added.

Thanks!

The cloisonné Lola badge for the hood was made from scratch; a combination of custom decals and a chrome base.

Of course it needs mounting posts…

The mounting bar, nuts and washers were also fabricated.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

More fantastic work.

Any idea what you'll do next, or will you take a break for a while?

Take a break? Never.
I have a 1/6th scale Honda I'd like to do next.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Now that the lower lights and the "grille" are installed, the rest of the underhood wiring could be done.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III



This goes in the "done pile" for now…
The plug for the lights that connects to the receptacle on the firewall is hanging down at the rear of the wheel well.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

The door windows are finished and installed. The front sections are fixed so there is a black seal around them. There are no seals for the rear flip out sections. There's also a little handle inside for each of those.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Thank you!


Time to install the main electrical wiring and a bunch of scratch-built subassemblies. I had already made the wires with ends and the brass guide clips. I installed the fuel pump, regulator & filters and ran the oil lines to the engine. The battery & hold down and the dipstick were installed too. I also added a half dozen more suspension parts/fasteners and the exhaust. This is still dry assembled and not everything is connected, just making sure all the lines are the correct length and that there are no interference issues. It's getting packed pretty tightly…

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Today's project was to make and install the rear brake lines. These are brackets for the hard lines out to the soft lines. Fabricated from sheet brass.

I made the Tee and the clamp and bent the lines today, but I had machined the fittings when I was making the front brake lines.

I had to tear down the right rear suspension and pull the right side header off to install the lines. Sure made installing the lines a lot easier… The soft lines are vinyl tubing.

Thank you Keith!


Grounding strap for the engine to chassis. Will it be seen when it's in installed? Maybe. Doesn't matter.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Another dozen and a half nuts, bolts and washers were machined and installed for the rear suspension. The rear section of the clutch line was added and the battery has been grounded. It's barely visible…
