I love the XR6T's, but love the bonnet bulge of the XR8!
I was close to picking up an XR6, but ended up with a soobie instead.
Your mates install looks absolutley fantastic, and yours is coming along well too. Is that just body filler that you have used to make the new bezel for your screen in the pics at the top of the page? Did you have any issues with it being too brittle/cracking?
I installed my carpc into my pet Kangaroo, mate.
