Not a very fancy model, but this is the layout of the rear suspension. Its in board and out of the airstream, and can be easily adjusted from the back of the car. Steve had to draw some brackets up to modify the Panoz rockers we were going to use.  Also we  had to switch the dampers (the ratio didn't work out for what we wanted) we were planing on using to get the correct droop travel and bump travel we needed.  Tony

Hi Tony

That's about as Sano as it gets dude, couple of brackets and a few bolts and you are off and running

I have been swamped at work and haven't had a chance to work on the car, but my neighbor brought the antenna cover for the roof top he made. It still needs to be trimmed and fitted with the cam locks, though it snot much one more thing crossed of the list. The mold for the part was posted some time ago on post 213.  Tony

Antenna cover? Roof top? Contour change?

      As long as your antenna cover leaves a minimum of 35% of the original roof visible when viewed from above...

Tony,

Roof flaps do not change the contour, they are flush with the top.

Vic,

Where did you get the 35% from?
