      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 machined a billet aluminum water pump pulley. It's dual & deep grooved so I can run the same belt set up I have on my real car and add an alternator to this car.

    Here's the matching crank pulley.

    Both loosely sitting on the engine.

    I made some washers and bolts and added the pump shaft and set up the mounting system for the pump pulley…
