Two very nice GT40s there Mark and Roy, gotta love the Gulf colours on the GT40 though Roy? They go together like strawberries and cream, a match made in heaven if ever there was one!! Drool ThumpUp

Trial of the body on the car.








I notice there is a nice cutout in the headlight housing for the LEDs and a nice round hole for the front indicators 




Just don't know where the rear indicators go, there only seem to be main lights and brake lights there.

That's looking good Ken, I like the way that you've painted those exhaust pipes, they look very realistic. Cool ThumpUp

Started lighting up the GT40, just got to figure out how to make the indicators flash and how to add the fibre optics for lighting up the dashboard

Nice work Ken Love Love . The lighting looks excellent. ThumpUp

If you want a simple flash circuit board, so the indicators flash together, here is a link. You can get cheaper ones if you want to wait as they are from China.

For the fiber optics my tutorial on this should help.

How to apply fiber optic lighting.

Things will slow down on this for a while as I'm waiting for a flasher circuit board for the indicators, some fibre optics for the dashboard and some switches to operate all the lights, all due mid to late February. 

Anyway here is the next update on this awesome kit.

Well I've wasted all weekend trying to get flashing indicators to work (I even bought so called flashing leds, which they didnt) so I've admitted defeat it won't have operating indicators, heres the next installment of the GT40
