Those are some very cool photos. Curtis, you should grab those for the newsletter, very illustrative of some pretty simple suspension mods that could be applied to the stock B with a little work. Thank you James, for posting those.

Someone sure ought to buy this, it'd be a real simple and comparatively cheap upgrade, especially considering the ball joint spindles and the cost of brake upgrades alone. Do you think it'd give enough clearance for the 302 swap?

Jimfai,

Have you any other of the "body" parts to the RV8 ?

I am building an SCCA RV8 for SCCA club racing in GT2 - a new car in the SCCA GT2 class in 2008. The project is near completion.

I am desperate for RV8 front-end fiberglass - fenders, hood, & front grill /spoiler section. Brown and Gammon offer nothing but original steel body parts - no fiberglass.

Fiberglass molds can be created from the original RV8 body parts for SCCA racing, but original parts (or the temporary use of original parts) would be necessary for making the molds.

Anybody know of fiberglass RV8 body parts offered for sale for racing - or of used RV8 body parts for fiberglass mold making ?

Phillip Leonard

Jimfai,

James Madson,

Are there front fenders available to your RV8 - even damaged ones would be of use in my R V8 SCCA GT 2 project.

Jimfai,

I can not locate John Hill - Great Britain fiberglass maker, I hear.

I've tried, but can find nothing on him.

Any help will be much appreciated.
