Is that carbon fiber? If yes, will it still show through like the PS pic? That would be bad ass! Never seen IOM carbon fiber come through.

Hood looks great

Won't look carbon fiber...I just adjusted the hue in Photoshop. It will look just like the rest of the car. I really didn't buy it for the carbon fiber, (though weight savings can't hurt). I just needed the heat extraction.

Another quick goodie update. I pre-ordered a set of the Oracle side mirrors that I'm hoping will be here shortly after the fest.

Mine are stock with LEDs put in. These are mirrors designed after the original concept. Here's a comparison.

They look nice. If you were getting the new ones before the fest I would take the old ones off your hands at the fest. LOL

For sure.. but lets hope this one is not outdated before it hits the news stands.

Last time the ENTIRE drive train was different than the article.

...and he used to ask my advise. After a few times of going the opposite (much better) direction he gave up on me...:(

Thanks guys...

Also, big thanks go out to my wonderful wife, and my good friend ITMerc. They went by and picked up everything from the paint shop. It all goes on this weekend!

I'll try and get some pics this before we put her on the trailer.

You mean Wednesday right?

I'm not sure about Mike. I don't think the trailer caravan is making as many stops on Wednesday, so we'll probably beat them.

I'll be there on Wed as well. But you and Mike and Owen may want to join me at the track on Thursday to meet with them to discuss the classes and tech cards and such.

We can hook up on Wed and go from there if that works for you guys.
