  1. The restoration of DJR2

    I am very proud to say that i have been asked to take on the task of a full nut and bolt restoration of the long time missing Dick johson number 2 rs500 race car The car The car was delivered to me by its owner of 13 /14 years a few months ago to view and give my opinion on . To say i got excited is a massive understatment , lol , The car looked so unloved yet still in amazing condition . After looking round the car i was shocked to see that the car was still very much as it should be and that the shell other than panel damage and repairs was in fantastic condition A long chat with the cars owner ( and some serious arm twisting by myself ) we agreed a full bare shell rebuild was the way to go The owner was set on racing the car but again after some serious ear bashing from myself we agreed to meet half way and that the car should be rebuilt to a high standard but still MUST be a car that can be used on track The owner is posotive that others can enjoy the car and it can be used for charity rides etc at events and can also be used correctly and in anger if he feels the urge . So, with this in mind the car was stripped to a bare shell and sent away to be dipped and coated to remove years of paint ( and a few tins of filler ) so we can start again . As said above the car is in amazing condition , but we checked the cars chassie on a body jig and other than a small pull to the o/s chassie leg ( and we are only talking a few mill ) she was perfect and ready to go . The car is now ready to start the body rebuild , I have managed to find a Gen ford back panel , 2 gen ford rear quater panels and a gen for bonnet landing panel . Sadly i cant find gen front wings but with a little playing about im sure i can get the none gen wings to fit well . Well here she is , sat ready for the new panels ,Ill keep the updates coming as i go along Thanks for looking Paul Before dipping On the trailer after dipping In the workshop

  11. Rs500 shell eBay

    The problem is that this shell was left outside for many many years and recently blasted and primered The other issue is everyone knows the build number , so when you have spent years and thousands building this car everyone knows how it started , so it will always be slagged of by the usuall muppets

  17. The idea behind this section

    With the rs500 race cars being somthing of massive interest to me and many others i hope this section can be used to show history and up to date info on all our favourite rs500 race cars My aim it to try and tell the story of all the famous ( and maybee not so famous ) cars 1, When they were built 2, Who built them 3, When and where they raced 4, Race wins / races finished 5, Who drove them 6, where are they now There is a massive amount of knowlage out there and i hope with a forum like this maybee we can get this knowlage in one place where we can build a database for us all to view and enjoy If you have any info on any cars please feel free to tell us so we can build an acurate database Regards Paul p.linfoot601@btinternet.com
