Just a note as I have had made and sold 38 sets of GT hard lines the indent really is not required.. I had no issues fitting mine personally ..

Haha, that just makes the time spent on this even more worthwhile (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)

The GT oil system is of course a challenge.

These are 3 vital components that are really difficult to come by/expensive

Luckily this is old school technology and possible to reverse engineer and replicate. At least the thermostate and oil pressure relief valve. Casting the oil filter bracket is a bit trickier, and most of them are magnesium also..

Plugs (is it called that..?) for sand casting (I have a guy who is going to do the metal casting).

Work in progress, very exciting

That's awesome!! Very cool. Did you oversize them to allow for casting shrinkage? In the past I've had a number of parts sand cast and have had to oversize between 1.5-3% for different magnesium and aluminum alloys.

They are called plugs. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Impressive amount of sheet metal, and casting your own parts takes it up a notch for sure.

Thank you for the feedback!
I have compensated 1,1% in the model + a layer of filler.

Not the most sucessful/effiecient project with the dies, but I really enjoy the process of making things myself in the garage. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif)

Thermostat is "missing" the mounting ear, but the bracket looks really nice. Seems to be a good price (but still a quite a lot of money).

I bought the project in 2012 (I think..) and most of the time from then to 2016, when I really started working on it again, has been used to ponder about color. The car is originally signal orange, a really cool color. However.. living in the worlds most sparsely populated country , there are not many 914 gt's around, and one of them is signal orange. I can guarantee this car and my car will meet on some cars and coffee in the future. So what else.
The car has been repainted ridiculosly many times and not much of the original paint is saveable, so I consider it a blank canvas.

Attached Image
I have never managed to figure out how many layers of paint there are.


Attached Image
I fell in love with the Sunoco/Duval livery, so I am quite sure it is going to be like this.

Attached Image
Even the cat seems to agree

Attached Image
I guess I am fully committed as it has been granted a spot in the living room as well (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cheer.gif)

Interesting read in the link! I have had some contakt with Francois about the yellow color some time ago, very nice and helpful guy!
He thought the yellow was the yellow in the Sunoco logo. I have found some info about this online, and Sunoco had a RAL code in a document (RAL 1018)
This did not look right at all, to much green I think.

Attached Image
I painted the inside of the door to see, In my mind the part laying on top has a more similar color..

I have from other sources found other color codes that look better, more red in the yellow. I will try them out.
These are things that may have changed over time I suppose (new versions of the logo)..

Looks like this is going to be a great build. I've almost finished mine and am already missing the research stage of the project, great fun.
