      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.

    I started making the shifter and the linkages to connect it to the shift shaft that ultimately feeds into the transmission. All brass, hand filed and soldered.
    At this point the shifter mechanism actually is functional, but will likely be "frozen" in first or neutral later.

    I cleaned up and assembled the other wheels Fraxional "grew" from my files. But I decided to try some other colors for the heck of it.
