I found something better to power the GT40 than some marker pens and some plumbing spares.

Here's a quick mock up ( I'm thinking of using some led's and have it hovering)








Can't decide on colour gold, blue or pink.

Pink is for Cadillacs. ;)

Black is the traditional Ford colour ("Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black." Henry Ford, 1863-1947), or blue. 8)


 ........  or beige. :o
