    Already ordered one. Yeah, from what you're saying it has to be light years better than what I've been using. The regular body saw blades...you can get about 10-15 minutes of use out of each blade and they're completely shot.

    Finally got the new dash pod bolted down. It fits like a glove!

    That's more than I can say for the PSG side piece, which was simply skinned.
    I'm not sure why it's not matching the contour any longer, but it couldn't have
    grown that much?

    I'm not sure what to do with the center console, most likely a flat CF.

    This whole body and interior is coming out again soon. I just wont be happy
    unless it's done over from scratch. The video will explain more.

    The tear down has begun. I'm ripping out all of the wiring and starting fresh. While the interior is gutted,
    the console is getting chopped to make room for a bigger touchscreen. The red line in the photo is the
    planned shape.




    Also having some thicker gauge vent covers made up. I'm not liking the bent aluminum look very much.





    Lastly, the LCD system got a fresh graphic. It's a mix of LaFerrari, McLaren 720S, and some personal
    touches. I've given up on the space-tech theme and going with a more performance oriented feel.

    Most of the front end wiring has been removed, and not a moment too soon. Besides wanting to clean up the original wiring,
    and matching fuse positions to functions, I've always wanted to re-locate or re-position the battery for easier access and removal.

    As I removed the negative cables, it was apparent that my battery had slid backward. The scary part is that the painted frame
    and design of the battery case saved me from absolute and inevitable damage.

    I'm getting a quote on new air vents for the windshield defrost. Draft one isn't bad, but I'll have to move
    the screw holes inward so the heads are not exposed at the edge. If anyone likes the design and wants the
    CAD file, I'll send it (Fusion - .F3D). I'm hoping to get a 3D print done by tomorrow for test fitting.
