    Another Stratos project

    I know there are plenty threads like this on the forum and I hope this another one doesn’t bother too much the audience!
    As I experienced in the past other Stratos restoration and preparation in a Corse S and HF3000 done in UK with the helps of friends SEC members,
    I think that could be interesting to share this thread with a new build project mainly located in France this time!
    For sure at the moment Covid pandemic and Brexit shutdown don’t help too much for it...Fingers crossed!
    This project would be a Darniche Red Chardonnet 1975 replica (with a LB STR still in order...) powered by one 3.2 GTA engine which I intent to prepare for Tarmac and race track events.


    Here a few pictures of the engine I’ m beginning to dismantle and clean up before some refurbishment and upgrade with new performance parts

    Re: Another Stratos project

    A few progress are done on the engine after some efforts and a bit TLC for very dirty parts like gearbox and oil sump!

    That gearbox is superb considering that it doesn't look as if it's been dismantled. How was it cleaned?!

    All parts are cleaned with hotwashing by hand after applying some cleaning products and only the gearbox needs to be sandblasted for obtaining a satisfying aspect!

    I believe, if not mistaken, the LB website refers to a couple being sent to the States. I also thought I read of one to Indiana, possibly one to Michigan and one in California in the Alitalia colors.
