Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I made brackets for the radiator.


The hard coolant lines from the radiator to the side pods are reworked parts from the kit, the left side being relocated to the top of the modified radiator and bent up much more than the right.

The silicone connector hoses are made of brass. The hose clamps are tin and I machined the worm drives from aluminum.


Dry fitted together.

The finished radiator.

The stone guard screen is 0.002 thick PE.
The "plastic" fasteners for it are machined aluminum as are the mounting bosses.


The petcock is aluminum and steel, machined and made of 3 pieces.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I made the upper hold-down bracket from five pieces of hand formed .010 sheet brass.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

The transmission cooler is made from the kit parts but they were modified. Same for the brackets. The mounting hardware was machined from aluminum. Line fittings will be added later.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

The spokes of the steering wheel were done with a black base and transparent blue mixed with smoke and clear to get the shade of anodized aluminum I wanted.
(They are the only part that's not aluminum.)

I made the little fasteners out of a steel pin.

The suede rim was done with pearl black pigment added to acrylic flat black.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

The level of detail you produce from scratch at a constant rate in (seemingly) no-time is almost disturbing...

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Thank you! But disturbing? How?


I designed the fuel regulator in SolidWorks.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I was going to machine the fuel pump, but decided to 3D design it too except for the main body/motor cylinder.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

These are the finished 3D printed parts for the pump and regulator. They will be used as patterns to cast resin copies.

I made the brackets for the fuel pump and regulator out of brass.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Looks like my resin has aged out, so I used the 3D printed master. I still have the mold for these parts, in case I want to make some for other projects.
I machined the fittings and mounting hardware for the regulator.
The adjusting knob on the regulator is knurled. A small Holley decal was made too, and then it was all lightly dirtied up.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I also machined the fittings and mounting hardware for the fuel pump.
The pump is a mix of cast and grown parts; the motor is machined brass.
The bolt on the clamp for the pump is threaded.
I made the decals for it too.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I machined the fuel filters. The primary is like what I run on my real cars and all aluminum. (It even has the three spot welds on one end.)
The secondary is one of those glass types (that I don't use on my cars…), but I thought it would look cool on this one. I machined the glass tube from some slightly tinted acrylic rod to give the look of it being filled with fuel. The ends and filter element are aluminum and it has gaskets between the glass and metal.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I milled the 7/16 bolts and washers for the headers. 0.0365


And wrapped them with heat insulation…
