    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

    I like Frederic’s authentic look! Especially if the gearbox was good. No point in my book stripping a box just to clean the outside.

    Agreed with you Tim, I dismantled the unit for refurbishing and replacing new parts like the Quaife!

    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!

    Re: Another Stratos project

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