      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 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.

    Thanks!
    I cut the logo out of vinyl and painted over it.

    I started working on the oil coolers, but decided to machine the sandwich block and a couple fittings first.

    The kit oil coolers were reworked and had some details added including some machined aluminum items and custom decals. They will be mostly hidden behind the radiator when done.

    The markings have been added to the timing tab and the bolts for the harmonic balancer and lower pulley have added as well.

    I made the first sections of the exhaust pipes, brass, styrene Lola T-70 Mk III rod and pliable tubing.

    I spent some CAD time this week designing the brake master cylinder.



    The clutch master cylinder.



    The clutch slave cylinder.


    And the J-56 Corvette adjustable proportioning valve & bracket.




    Full assembly.

    Thanks Don.

    For some reason the proportioning valve would not print/grow with the rest of the layout. I tried to print it separately but the printer stopped reading all files, so I made one from scratch the old fashioned way while I try to figure out what the problem is.

    These are the masters I pulled a mold off for the brake and clutch parts. I broke the little bracket extricating it from the RTV Lola T-70 Mk III , no problem; it will be more resilient as a cast part.

    I got the printer working again and made the original proportioning valve I did in 3D. (I guess it's like losing a part in the carpet; make a new one and you find the original…)

    The cap for the clutch master was made with the other parts, it grew well and even cast nicely, but it didn't look right. So I milled a new one.

    The master cylinder assembly with J56 proportioning valve & bracket and cap w/gasket. Working cap clamps too… (overkill?). The bleeders and front line fitting will be added later.

    Incredible detail. Can't wait until we get to see it all assembled with all of these delicious details in place. What color are you going for on the body?
