I kept the 6 pin connection in the engine bay but tucked it away up and out of sight. this way I could disconnect and remove, if something ever happened to the fitech, without the need to pass the connection through the aluminum. I then have the wires that are from the other side of the 6 pin plug which go to the fuel pump relay, fan control, ignition, etc; integrated into a split loom that I put through the pass-through hole which is shared with the rear harness. Then those particular wires are separated to their needed location within the ds footbox area.
The controller plug ins hang loose under the air cleaner. If i ever need to run and drive it while checking the controller, I can close the hood over the cable and keep my eye on the screen. But that has never come up. I keep the controller in a box in the trunk.
Tires before wheels…
got the Yokohama ADVAN A052 setup 265/35R18 up front and 315/30R18 in back... they're BEASTS! a few more weeks till the wheels come to get mounted, then a wait till the suspension is built :p
I have not heard any negatives about M. Eversons products and I assume this will hold true.
I was looking through replica parts website making a shopping list and was wondering:
What do people think about this product? I have the Breeze lower mount which it says it's good to have.
Body buck needed in the Riverside, Ca. area (Lake Perris). A good friend of mine pulled the trigger and ordered a roadster kit. Should be coming in Feb. Let me know if there’s a buck needing a home. Thanks!
Here's my running list of 'extras' on top of the roadster itself... yikes, you guys aren't kidding about how things can get out of control....!!
I have a bunch of common 'good known items' and others that may be optional, which ones do you have, or wish you had? please add more to my wallet :)...
