    CF cover

    Yea I made it to cover my lilli that is molded into the center console. When i molded the screen into the console i used small magnets about the size of pencil erasers into each top corner. then i epoxied 2 more magnets onto the back of the cf plate. this allows it to "snap" into place and doesnt budge when driving. the magnets that are molded into the console are recessed and bondo'ed and painted. cant tell they are there when the cover is off. then it magically snaps into place! I will try and get some pics of that up this weekend. My digi cam is busted right now, damn surfing trip, lol

    If you have never worked with carbon fiber before then you should look into other mediums. Its not easy for a novice.

    i work at a mitsu dealer as a tech for 18 years. when the 2 gen eclipse came in it had a plastic protector under the chin. we removed it at pdi (pre delivery inspection). and reinstalled the bolt. depending on the color of you car i have seen many ways to protect it .the best was also the easiest. get bulk raditor hose ,the 3 inch stuff. cut lenth wise ,drill in 6mm holes to match the mounting under the nose . bolt it up and you are done. you will need to make sure that it stay tight to the body so that air dosent pull it down at high speed.

    I install those reverse sensors where I work. With them on the lowest sensitivity even its going to be hard to "point" them. Too high and it will only beep when you have someone or something in front of you (approx 3 feet). Too low and it will beep on everything. You would be better off with a camera mounted under the bumper than a set of those sensors.

    Thanks. Its a Hahn kit, or was, I guess I should say. Custom now. Built motor (by msyelf), 8.8:1 .020 over pistons, total seal rings, riding on Eagle long rods (.136" longer), polished crank, MLS headgasket, underdrive pulley, AEM cam gears, Crane 14 cams, PandP head and intake mani, 60mm TB, etc. running 15-16psi daily and 22 at the track. Right now my problems are the axles are snapping if i go any higher.

    these enclosure suggestions and (my more agreebly) not so good idea suggestions and all are great...but if im right im suprised no one said anything earlier, arent those reverse backup sensors two pieces, one for the end of your car and one to be mounted in your garage as a reciever? if so the whole idea is canned anyway

    I Have found out that most are just like four small little sensors the size of screws that detect proximity to any ob ject in front of it, so i really dont need a case for it
