Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Thanks! Yes, I have been able to build entire kits for the magazine in less time than almost any single subassembly on this one. But I am enjoying the process.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

The intake manifold has now been final installed, (with gaskets), and the fuel lines are temporarily attached until the upper carb gaskets are added and the distributor is installed. (The valve covers are not finished yet, but they make the engine look better than just the raw heads. And because… magnets!)

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

After the first round of paint for the interior it was time for another test fitting of some of the body panels to the tub.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Thank You!

The distributor, as well as its hold down clamp, is installed, the signal wires are routed and vacuum advance hose plugged into the canister. The ignition wires come later…

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I made the water temperature probe/sender and the bellhousing bolts & washers. I also made decals for the "fan" belts and fuel lines.

I made the worm type hose clamps for the radiator hoses that connect to the engine. I also made decals for the hoses. The lower (water pump) hose is actually an upper hose for a small block C3 Corvette, and the upper is a big block C3 hose. That's just the way they fit in this application. (The lettering is intentionally distressed as the printing the real ones is often that way.)

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

The valve cover hold-down bolts and breathers were machined from aluminum. Both are patterned from the same line of Eddie Motorsports parts.

Yes, there is a little grime around some areas…

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

The rear suspension was going in just fine until I realized I needed to install something else first. But before I could do that I had to mount something else, and before that, another item…
So I installed the instrument panels. The "A/C" hoses were installed too.


The top of the dash and the Wink mirror were mounted to the body.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I figured I'd see what it looks like now that it has color on it so I loosely assembled the panels. Too bad it's a hazy day; the color pops more in direct sunlight.



Gonna have to put the wheels on it soon too…

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I finally installed the spark plugs and made & routed the ignition wires. They are the beefy 10.4mm size. I had already made the boots and spark plugs.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I think the engine is as done as possible for now. There's quite a few more parts already made for it, but they will be added later.
So the next trick is to install this…
