Ron, the dare is on!

Tino just want to say......

Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock We are watching

Of course if you start running out of time, you can always call up Taz to help, since he did accept the dare on your behalf.

With friends and country men like him how can you lose

Scissor Door Hinge, and Window Track Help Please.

Guts going into doors! This is going to be easy, right?

These scissor hinges are proving to be a challenge. There is absolutely no place to mount the plating on the GTM frame.
I'll have to add some material, and reinforce it with some gizmo-Macgyver thingie.

For those that have installed their windows already, I'm calling for a little clarification please. The assembly manual says
to chop off the studs at the top end of the window tracks. That's done.

It doesn't mention anything about the studs at the bottom, but I'm assuming they all have to be removed. The only one
that is worth keeping (I believe) is the screw/stud in this photo. This could be used to secure the track to the bottom of
the door:



This longer one either needs to be cut down to slide between the fiberglass, or removed completely.
The trouble is, there is a pulley fixed by this bolt. What's the deal here, and what have you done in this area?



Nothing bolted down yet, just sitting for a photo shoot.




This section of the fender-well will be built up with plates, and bars to secure the door hinge.



Scissor door guys, link me to your build page. I'll be searching for ideas!


Pssst...Ron, I went to the ministry yesterday. Received some pleasant news, and instructions. Thanks for the continued fueling of the fire under my butt!

Tino;
cut/drill out all the existing fasteners on the corvette window tracks. use the supplied bolts/nuts/washers to secure the tracks to the door. bottom ones are a no brainer, install as directed. top ones you will have to make it work. good luck and take your time, clear your head and keep at it. it will
all turn out in the end.

can you give me a heads up as to how your registering etc. works out for you.

we actually have summer weather now, so no slacking off, get er done.

I was thinking there would be some hoops to jump through to secure the
top ends of the window rails. I'm searching some build threads now to see
what people have done.

Let me know when you're ready to roll. I wrote Alain this week, and told him
we're going to set a day to go cruising.

Checked some items for clearance this evening. Not much going on until the tires can be mounted, and the exhaust flex pipes arrive.
There will be a good deal of rework required to make things right, except the stereo install perhaps.

Side window air scoop mod. These things need to be cut down, and reshaped to fit the contour of the window. It's a pretty close
match, but not perfect. I'm not sure where I'll route the air flow, but I'm thinking rear brake cooling, or help to circulate warm air
out of the engine bay.




Stereo is darn near made for this console. I don't think I'll need any magic to make this fit.
Making the bracket will be quite the task I'm betting.

P.S. What are the ISIS guys doing for stereo location? Will the ISIS control/play music as well?

Exhaust is tight; not sure my accumulator can stay in the current spot. The muffler diameter is a touch on the
excessive side, but I'm hoping I"ll be able to center the tips in the rear molded area next to the license plate.
I'll have the tips protrude outside of the body so that the lower lip is about 1/2" extended. I will have to shield
the fiberglass with some aluminum to prevent warping.





As much as I'm liking these rims, I'm regretting the offset/backspace dimensions. The wheel sticks out too far
out the side of the body for my liking. At the moment my gut says to roll the front wheel-well a couple of inches,
and use fiberglass to build a smooth transition to an inconspicuous "line" in the body.

This setup also needs a nicer brake caliper as the spokes disclose quite a bit of the rotor, and brake hardware.



That's it for me. I hope your builds are going well.

A few more toys for the final stretch. Late last week, the windshield went to a glass shop for replacement options. I may end up using Lexan if we can't
find a suitable shape to fit the contour of the body. Last measurement checked at 1/2" gap on one side.

3rd Brake Light (required in Ontario) w/ stop & turn functions. Some LED turn signals for the front.
Not sure if I'll use them as side markers, or up front...or not at all.



Leather wrapped shift knob from Razo, with brushed aluminum accents. Feels good, and has
a nice weight for firm action on the throw.


If anyone can confirm the pin assignments for this connector, I'd appreciate it.
Pin A (purple) - Sender ground
Pin B (black) - Pump ground
Pin C (red) - 12 Volt Pump Power
Pin D (blue) - Sender signal

Yes?

Looking like the windshield alternative isn't going to happen. I'll have to swallow shipping, and customs fees to get the glass from FFR.
Silly me for breaking it the first time!

More progress made today as I worked on the electrical, side air scoops, and body/muffler cutout centers. Tomorrow is, "Scissor Door Hinge Assembly Day".
We should make that a national holiday?

Going to play with this placement before welding the system. Sleep on it, and then try another extension.


Stereo amplifier getting wired up; it takes up the exact length of the fuel tank fire-wall.
LED sidemarkers will be used in place of those chrome ones linked up above. These things
seem more fitting, and the chrome lights may find a home in the interior for courtesy lights.




Almost done with the LH scoop! I'll need to bolt them tight to the body then fill the gaps;
the back end is sitting a bit high right now as you see in the last photo.




The body looks terrible right now; I'm so embarrassed to show it!
Soon it will be back to filler, and sanding for this guy.

I've had a few people ask about the side markers I'm using, and whether they
are DOT approved.

They are not DOT approved, but you need to add a red reflector to the rear
side of the car, and an orange reflector to the front side of the car.

When used in conjunction with an LED lamp, it should pass. Ask your certification
mechanic to be sure.

At this point, my plan is to add a red reflector lens to cover the LED light.
I'm not certain which will fit in the pocket area, but I may rig up a temp.
cover to get by the safety. We'll see what turns up this week.

A bit more work on the tail-end. Nothing is welded, just staged for the photo shoot. The accumulator will have to be
repositioned, but otherwise things fit well. I'm thinking the tips are extended to a nice length; no change of heart after
seeing it next day.

Hi Tino,

Have you consider something like these as side marker lights? Their DOT approved and might not be that expensive if you look in the right places, and you can be the first on the block in GTM land to have them

That's a great alternative! I'll look into them; hopefully the dealer
wont hang me too badly. Another source perhaps?

Today was spend completing the speaker box, and RH door.
This thing is removable for those long trips with passengers, or extra tall people.


This is not the correct size for the woofer, but what can you do when you are limited to a foot well?! There's always room to vent into the hood area, but
we;ll see how it sounds as-is.

The RH door also got mounted; still needs the striker, and latch bolted. Tomorrow the doors get aligned, and then I'll be able to start the scissor hinge!

Appraisal guy is coming next Friday, and Insurance is on stand-by. I have a great deal of interior, and electrical work ahead of me, however getting a
base-line value will get me rolling by mid June. Sorry Ron, I can't /wont rush this to win the dare, but it's getting close to street ready. Once the windshield
arrives, it's going for safety, the registration!

Ron,
Small world. So I'll lay claim to the first GTM. (Idea, to use these, came from Ken Roberts and his SL-C (GT40s.com - View Single Post - Ken's SLC build thread). These also become a "Mini" version of what GM has done on the new corvette.

I'm finishing up my addition of these right now. Rear was easy, front was a different story.

I've redone the front since these pictures, having them match the rear's spacing with the wheel well.

I've seen some nice marker additions, but they were either very expensive or didn't suit the look, in my opinion, of the lines of the GTM.

You have to select the right combo of years so the bulb ends up on the same side of the marker.

Tino,
Sorry for the slight hijack.

I like the attitude...savour the journey and don't rush.
That said, get the damn thing on the road! Just kidding. I'm sure Ron will cut you some slack if your vids rock.

Let me know if you need some visuals for the interior or exterior.

Ash,

You know that I'll be calling if there's any sort of graphic work required.
My only short term interior mods include a brushed aluminum shift plate,
and a badge with the logo, and car number.

Maybe even a glove box on the RH dash as there is room back there..
What you can help me with is spelling, and grammar in my last post.

*spent completing
* then registration



Big V, no worries, the info is appreciated.

Hey V,

Okay I stand corrected and anoint you the first GTM builder to use those side marker lights, plus it shows that great minds do think alike

They look great, along with the rest of the body work. Do you know what color that you want on it ?

Now back to the thread:

Hey Tino, tick, tock, tick, tock, remember the dare

Hey Ron,

The appraisal has been booked! It will get written whether the sun shines,
or not. Are you getting scared?

A few pics from last night; unfortunately nothing too interesting. Both doors
are closing nicely, but the gap spacing will be done once the body is mounted,
and scissor hinges are installed.



Door alignment with standard hinge. Ewww, look at those nasty sanding lines.
Rough cuts for the lower, side air inlets. Need to figure out how to channel
air to the rear brakes, or around engine.

Me scared? Nope not me, for I know Taz has your back, and I'm waiting to do the joke of how many Canadians does it take to finish a GTM on a double dog dare

Tomorrow is June 1st! My car is supposed to be finished, and on the road! Sorry Ron, I failed...what do I owe you?

Some interesting pictures to share as the big-boy stuff is getting done. Found rims with a similar pattern, but proper offset. Going with a different tire combo;
Toyo Proxes R1R series.

Exhaust - pretty much done; thinking about grinding the welds and polishing the tubes, or maybe wrapping the mid section. Anxious to hear the new tone with the
huge canister glass-packs.

Both lower air inlets rough cut. Upper air inlets have scoops, but need trimming because the window guide on the door is interfering. Didn't see that coming - geometry sucks.

Cool LED's all around for interior lighting, turn, brake, side marker, dash flood, dome, and engine bay sizzle (I know, borderline ricer!)

Tomorrow dash wiring, and headlamp/brake lamp wiring. Maybe even a quick boot around the block if the rain holds off. Video for sure!



Body needs to move right about one inch to center the intake w/ muffler spacing.



Glass, and filler to blend the scoop; still thinking of a method to mount air duct.
Door handle will probably get filled in for the "shaved" look.

Good progress today:

- Windshield arrived this morning (no drama)
- Appraiser showed up early; docs should be ready by weekend
- Installed most of the console switches/buttons
- Cut-out the dash inlay for the gauges
- Powered up the stereo for the first time

Main power panel getting wired up. Not sure if I'll paint the poly, or leave it clear. Many more wires to come.
Gauges are looking good; I'm liking the aftermarket appearance more than I thought.


Stereo face kicks out four inches - HVAC & pushbuttons needed to be moved closer to shifter.
Had to cut the key bracket away from the console tubing.

Door skin hung for some extra appeal during the appraisal. If the receipts get covered, I'll be happy!
For those doing a custom layout outside of the FFR template - REMEMBER TO CHECK CLEARANCE FOR THE SHIFT HARDWARE, AND IGNITION BRACKET!
New steering wheel required to see the gauges. The entire mid section of the sweep is blocked.


Insurance is on stby. Picking up customs docs on Thursday.

Safety next week, and then registration time!!!!!(JUNE 11th)!!!!!!

Ended up grabbing MSR rims, Black Pearl finish with a similar pattern as the
previously purchased XXR brand. I thought flat black was my thing until I saw
the Black Pearl in the show room. They look better in person; my phone
camera doesn't show the highlights of the finish, but I'm liking them over the
flat black coating. Wishing I had some paint on the car right now!



Still waiting on the appraisal to be sent over to my insurance company.
Working on securing the body at the moment, then getting the windshield
stuck for the certification. Fun times; then I'm off to register.

Also picked up a nice rearview mirror with integrated GPS, and rear view
camera. It will compliment the Boss head unit nicely with video inputs
for full time rear view, and reverse triggered back-up camera. The mirror is
essentially a computer (Windows operating system, Applications, games, etc.)
with Bluetooth, and WIFI for web browsing. WTF?! There are enough
accidents on the road without having a gaming system next to your forehead.
If you haven't picked up a mirror, check out this product.

The plan is to have the backup cam trigger to either the stereo display, or
rearview depending on whether the stereo is powered up. Cell phone calls
can be routed to the mirror for hands-free, and caller ID display as well.

Flat black wheels are easy

Just drive normally,your wheels will get covered in brake dust and just like magic you'll have flat black wheels. As you maybe can tell I'm not much of a black wheel fan but I really like those shinny black ones. They look like black chrome. Awesome!
You would be amazed at the difference a complete coat of surfacing primer will do at getting your paint itch scratched. It'll cost you less than $200 and it will help you towards that perfect body an will seal up the filler.
I attached a picture to show what having the car one color of primer will do for you. I would suggest to pick your primer color based on your intended finish color. We should have went with black because if the paint is going to chip it will chip into the surfacer. A black chip in a dark color is much less noticeable than white.

Your primer coat looks better than some final coats that i've seen.

I'm definitely going to shoot some primer, and possibly a couple layers of colour.
Before doing that, I want to consult the guy slotted to paint the car over the
Winter. No matter how I slice it, things will be done twice with respect to body
work (or maybe a third time), but whatever gets me back into a V8 this Summer
is fine by me!

Appraisal has been sent to the insurance company. Safety next. Registration

My FFR brothers, and sisters, today is truly a day to remember.

stress.
