Maybe someone sells these:

1) Street legal Low cut wind screen (Speedster)
2) Dress up covers for stock guages
3) FIA Body for FFR Frames
4) Hard cover (passenger side) Tonneau cover

How about a half height full windshield for specs??
Alloy blanking plates for spec rollbars?
Mesh sides to offer an alternative to louvres?
What about a nice partial alluminum pedal box...relatively easy to make and would mean people don't have to do pedal mods in the process eliminating weight and adding good looks,

I Like the rear screen and the lower radiator support is way overdue.

I already made a really nice one for cars with two rollbars... Ask Racingrob! He Helped in the design! Love the autocross bumper!

Working on one now.. Trying to find a "reasonable" source of optically correct lexan.

Windshields will be able to be trimmed from their standard 1/2 height size.

If you look at Whitby's site, at the bottom of the accessories column, you'll see a mesh rear windscreen. It says,"coming soon". It's been that way for over a year. I'd be intrested in one. Mike

How about a concealed roll bar mount? Two round metal washers, one with a threaded bolt welded on, and one with a nut. One welds in the roll bar leg, and the other welds into the roll bar. Then, you thread the leg on, and drill and bolt the other end to the chassis bracket. Wish my fabrication skills were up to the task...

I sure would like someone to package everything needed for the Fiero parking brake in a kit.

I have a full width roll bar, and I've been thinking about a windscreen. I see some cars - like Miata, Audi, BMW - with a simple mesh fabric across the roll bars. I'm thinking about using some mosquito netting and nylon webbing and fabricating a screen that attaches with velcro straps.

Also considered using some smoked plexiglass / Lexan and bolting that to the roll bar.

I like the mesh screen because it's easy to remove an put in the trunk.

They had a prototype unit on a Silver/black car a year ago... It looked very professional. (as does all their stuff) dont know where it stands.

I have dual roll bars and I intreaged with the windscreen idea. Does it really help in these cars? A recomendation might make it even more appealing. There I go wanting to spend more money. Any pics, prices, where do I go to stand in line?

Another dual roll bar idea...how about a "bikini top" like the Jeep CJ guys have? It would mount to the top of the windshield, and stretch to the top of the two roll bars.

boB,
I was thinking the same thing except using garden supply shade cloth. I think it would stand up to the wear and tear better. Scott
