    250 GTO Owners Thread

    While I was rubbing it back for the final coat I added the radiused corner to the side windows.

    250 GTO Owners Thread

    Good to be able to post again. Thanks Brian. I've made a few modification during the 12 month evaluation period prior to final painting. Here is the first. During the build I had a Perspex rear window made as I needed to drill holes to mount it, which I couldn't do with a glass window. This made it easy to mount a rear window vent. I must admit I did this purely for appearance but as it turned out it dramatically lowered the cabin temperature on hot days - we have a few of them down here!

    There is no reply button or box

    Fair crack of the whip, sport. There has been no 'reply' function on the "250 GTO Owner's" thread for 3-4 months, despite numerous requests on thie thread and directly to the Administrators. Fair enough if it on a list 'to do', etc, but a little bit of communication would be appreciated - Thanks.

    I still have this problem, although it is somewhat random. In particular, I cannot reply to the "250 GTO Owners" thread. Thank you.

    After Photobucket's initial stunt of restricting 3rd party posting Google Chrome hit back with an 'extension' to address it.It now appears as though Photobucket has tried again but there is, yet again, a response from Google Chrome. You just need to include new 'extensions.Click on the 3 vertical dots in the top right hand corner Click on 'Settings' Click on 'Advanced' Click on 'Accessibility' Type in "photobucket" to the search in the top left hand corner Click on 'Photobucket fixer' You should see 3 extensions appear - I don't know which is best so just select all of them. Restart Google and you should see images on all forums.I think Photobucket would stand a better chance taking on Kim Jong-un than Google!

    Wilwood Prop Valve Adapters

    Okay. I can't recall the exact details but as mine was a complete rebuild including new lines I probably flared the ends to match the valve and not retained the OEM flares. Sorry, it was a while ago and I'm struggling to recall all the details.

    Wilwood Prop Valve Adapters

    Why not buy the metric version of the valve which has the 10 mm threads? The less number of fittings, the less chances of leaks.

    Rotisserie Measurements

    Add 300 mm to the height of the stands and have the mounting (axis of rotation) 75 mm above the bumper mounts.

    250 GTO Owners Thread

    Following on from the movie http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/50042-250-gto-owners-thread/?p=1182927 I've put together a book about the build. I just started out keeping notes for myself and any future owners about what went into the build for later maintenance and repair. Friends wanted to know how it was progressing so the notes morphed in quarterly journal entries. Someone suggested I compile it into a photo-book and as it turned out I think it gives added provenance to the car. Just a thought for those undertaking builds.

    Brainstorming for V12 project

    The engine (choice) is not so much an issue when installing a V12 is an S30, as is the transmission. There is A LOT of work, and lost cabin/dash space, modifying the firewall and enlarging the transmission tunnel.

    Drivetrain vibrations while accelerating - Ideas?

    I had a somewhat similar issue except that the vibration/knocking occurred when I backed-off after hard acceleration. I rebuild new CV shafts and replaced the brand new CVs with used units - still had the problem. I swapped the diff for another - still it was there. I did notice there was a pulsing back through the brake pedal at the same time but I couldn't understand how that could relate to the cause of the issue so regarded it as a consequence. Eventually I had the car raised on a hoist and the suspension supported with the wheels removed. I sat in the car while others watched underneath. I tried for about 10 minutes to recreate the vibration/knocking but it became harder and harder to detect. We eventually gave up when the smell of the brakes, from constant application and no air flow, became overpowering. When we refitted the wheels and drove home there was no vibration/knocking and there hasn't been since. We surmised it was the brake pads not being bedded-in sufficiently and that had be achieved, albeit inadvertently, when the car was on the hoist. The fact that the issue was, apparently, the pads but only occurred when the car was accelerated hard (not braking) completely threw me. I don't offer these comments as a solution to your problem but as a suggestion you also consider the brakes as a possible culprit.

    Look like a set I purchased from this site. Great quality - really pleased. http://interior-innovations.com/index.php/welcome/product_detail/41
