It was dark when I took these shots last night, so some didn't come out too clear.
I think this is looking MUCH better than the first pics of the prototype. Although there will be more cosmetic changes, this is the final overall design as far as tubing goes.
When seen in person, it is pretty close to the engine and further away from the glass than it looks. According to Larry, he has been running the protoype for over a year now with no effects on the glass hatch.
He wants opinions, so please post them here so I can pass them on. This design is similar to the GruppeM in design in that the tubing is above the engine. I know some want a stock look and do not like this. This kit is probably not for you. As for those who do not mind or like this look, please let me know so I can pass on the suggestions.
It was very dark and I was using a disposable camera. In person, it looked sharp, clean and shiny. All the lines were steel braided. The turbo, valves and almost eveything else was polished or brushed.
The design is low to the engine and looks like a vertical line across the top.
Unfortunately, Larry could not make the last meeting in time. However, Larry, Sinbad (the owner) and the car will be at the next monthly meeting at both Huntington Beach and Calabasas so more can see it in person.
Also, you may notice a gauge pointing in the wrong direction. Larry has been doing this at the request for some customers. It's angled so you can see it in your rear view mirror.
