Some high beam photos...

Pictures.

The farthest sign in this photo is 1.1 miles away. On a straight highway, I get reflections from street signs up to just above 2 miles out... Re-read my responsibility list above....

How it started:

No rear window, no threads, scrapped rims, scratched paint...Otherwise perfect condition...

Duh.. my bad. Awesome ride. What headlamp enclosures are you using? It has the proper reflectors for HID hi beams? If you get a starscan I think you can program the fogs to come on with the highs.

Thanks,

I thought about getting a starscan, but they are 2,500 bucks...

My high beams are not perfect for HIDs. I evaluated three bulb positions before I settled for the current one. I wish they spread more - they are too focused.

Well, i placed the order for the engine in the beginning of March ( and paid...) with a promised four weeks lead time. Now, three months later and still no engine I had to shift sequence and priorities a bit, so i started finishing off the outside. The car is currently being wrapped in 3m 1080 satin. Probably done next week. I am looking for a venom or medic hood to finish off the outside.

Also, looking for a single large oval exhaust tip like Murcilago, but I am coming up short. Any ideas?

The satin black is coming along nicely...







Just got to find the Cf hood to finish off the outside.
