Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Thank You!

While not a big visual thing, the cockpit section of the body has finally been permanently mated to the tub. Now I get to build the rest of the interior into the car. Nowhere near the ship in a bottle game; but the limited access proving to be the challenge had I expected in a couple of areas despite my optimistic planning.
The seats are installed hopefully for the final time. The steering wheel can be popped to install the harnesses.

The harnesses went in as planned.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I feel I'm repeating the same message over and over, but it is looking stunning. The harnesses really look realistic in there.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Thank you Arno!


I had already finished the taillights and repaired a couple of them due to the flexible hose material melting into them in the box, but upon closer examination even the "good" ones weren't as true as I'd like. So I machined new ones out of clear Lexan and tinted styrene. Each lens is two pieces. I was able to refinish and reuse the bezels and the bulbs I already made. Two red and two amber.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

The plate is now registered, the tags are reflective too.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

When I test installed the new taillights I didn't like them; they were too bold for the car. Amazing what a couple thousandths of an inch can do… good or bad. I made a new smaller set like the previous ones, but that same design was still distracting to me so I machined one more even smaller "simpler" set.
I had to make new bezels and bulbs too.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I had to machine the mounting hardware for the plate/bracket before I could install it. After it was installed I added the interior mounting brackets for the taillights and the loom (with pigtail) for all of the lights. Still some weathering to do in here.


The rear spoiler has been installed too…

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Yeah. nice wiring. Looks very realistic. The only thing missing are tie-wraps or cable clamps

Thanks!
There are clips in there holding the loom in place. (Just like under the front hood.)
In scale they are not imposing.
(There is also a plug/connector attached to the part of the loom that is on the chassis.)

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

More final fitting, fine tuning and triple checking before the side pods were attached permanently.
That meant one more round of test fitting the other removable panels before moving along…

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Now that is stunning, I really like the yellow spoiler with the blue body work.
This is going to be a master piece for sure.
Do you post your work in any other forums?
Merry Christmas
Keith.

Actually this is the only forum that has the complete build from the very beginning.
Some of the forums I started sharing it in have gone offline and I went to others well after it was started.
There is more here than I share on Facebook too.

This is the only online venue I share to friends who want the "big picture".

this is starting to come together beautifully. Would love to see this as a real car on the road.
