      I pulled this kit from my stash on May 5, 2019; the night we got home from the GSL.

      1997 reissue of the 1970 Tamiya Lola T-70 Mk III kit. It's been patiently waiting for 22 years in my stash to be built.
      I've been researching, planning and figuring all month. (Actually I was scheming a couple days before in case I didn't find a dream deal on another Caterham kit during the show/trip.)
      It will be built as a street car T-70 replica with some modern upgrades.


      I started by cleaning up the tub and main body panels.
      Lots of filling and sanding Lola T-70 Mk III to remove the twenty ¼ inch diameter ejection pin marks in the tub alone and general parting lines. But still a nicely molded kit considering its age.


      The insides of the body also needed to be addressed for the same issues.

    The half-shafts are done for now. The yokes are cast resin Lola T-70 Mk III (dyed black) copies of 3D parts.

    The shafts are brass acid treated for the dark finish.


    Each U-joint has four bearings/caps (with E clips) and they work. The half-shafts telescope too.

    I was going to have to adjust the rotor hubs (or make shims) so I decided to mill a new one out of resin Lola T-70 Mk III stock instead of editing the 3D file and growing a replacement. This was quicker too.
