    Looks good. I'm interested to see how effective it is with the full windshield in place. If it works well, I'd strongly consider adding one to my car for the track days. I'd been thinking about adding one, but modifying my dash and windshield so that I could quickly and easily remove my windshield at the track to get better aero and make the wing receive more flow.

    That's a big wing.
    I want the hood.

    It seems to be working, but I have only noticed on straight line acceleration at this point. There is a lot of surface area that should be in clean air.

    Thanks!

    Installed a simple 2x50W bluetooth amp from Parts Express to power 6.5" speakers in my BRZ door panels. I'm a little unimpressed, but the speakers installed easily with some plastic epoxy.



    I installed a 1/4-20 bolt in each door hinge. This gives an adjustable limit to how far the door swings open. On the driver side I fit a nut to each bolt to lock it down. The passenger side clearance was tight, so I used loctite. If it backs out I'll sand down a couple nuts to make it thinner.

    CRAP! Why I didn't do that in the 1st place! So much more wise! Ah man that's a pain once everything is installed and completed to remove and re-start.

    Everyone, DO AS ANDREW!! Don't use FFR's non-adjustable stoppers.

    Adjustable is definitely the way to go.

    I tested out the Holley Hydramat on accident today. My new fuel sender shows 1/8th tank when in fact the tank is bone dry. The hydramat worked perfectly, sucking up every single last drop of fuel. I was getting after it and the car showed no sign of fuel starvation until it was absolutely empty.

    I know it's a little more money but get this guy. It cranks, will take a little water np and is actually really small. the remote does basic controls perfect for the 818 no head unit required.

    run it bridged and your speakers will sing.

    bonus usb charging port.


    on amazon.

    I might upgrade to that amplifier. Thanks for the recommendation.

    The car was a huge hit at the Grand Rapids, MI Cars and Coffee today. In the presence of true exotics it still always had a huge crowd. There should be some good pictures pretty soon from the professional photographers. My wife snapped these when it was time to leave.

    Posted those up on the Facebook group a few months ago. Seriously easy to do but a real pain if you have to take your doors off to do.

    Thanks!

    I made an acrylic wind deflector. It seemed to make the cabin air way more turbulent. It's possible that it would cut down on exhaust, but that is virtually gone with my new setup. I took it off. Maybe mesh material like some convertibles have would be better.

    You fitted it on the rollbar? It's weird cuz Harley tried the same and said it reduced air flow in the cabin.

    Yes, right behind the roll bar. I couldn't wear a hat above 50 MPH and my wife's hair was going crazy.

    Here are my rear tow hooks I decided on. They're just set in place for the pictures because I need longer fasteners.

    Wow very surprised about the windscreen! I'm glad you shared that because it will save me some time from going down that road. Wish I could find a good solution because there are times I don't commute places in my car because my hair will be to flock-of-seagulls by the time I arrive.

    Where are you getting all your blingy aluminum parts cut??

    I wish Harley will read that, I'd like to hear about the comparison.

    What the H$ll is wrong with Flock of Seagulls?

    Actually, for me the flow in the cabin was about the same. The major difference is that the lexan changed the flow so the exhaust didn't come up into the cabin.

    Whats wrong with a little wind in the hair?..... just cut it shorter.
    Actually, my wife's not complaining either and she has shoulder length hair.
    Whenever I get worried about my hair I just push harder on my right foot....seems to work!

    Cool hooks... now you just need an octagonal bump bar to slide between them and some set screws.

    I've got a lot of CMMG stickers too!

    I've got a few friends/acquaintances with CNC capabilities, also at work. The tow points were cut on a water jet and then cleaned up with a belt sander.

    That would be an interesting look! Keen eye on the sticker. I've done two complete builds from 80% LRs. One to .223, the other to .300 blackout. All of the part suppliers want to give you a sticker.
