    Few More Pics

    Here are a few more pics, the power button and led's are hidden behind ash tray door along with a serial connection, and a usb as soon as I find where I put the cable. Also a shot of the remote mount faceplate, enjoy. Oh, the touchscreen is still in the process of being molded in. I am using the Oatley ABS Cement, works great, read about it in another thread.

    Nothing yet, I am kinda on a mission to make a JR. Lightning, I am pretty close with the looks, just need to add a body kit. And the engine will be getting it,s "special treatment" as soon as the warranty runs out.

    And The Finished Product

    Well after many hours of cementing, bondo and painting in the bathroom converted shop (I hate living in an apartment). It is finaly done. Well done for the most part, as most of us know this is a project that will never be finished. Here are some photos of the t/s installed and running, I'll try and take some better shots after dark.
    I threw in one of the boot screen and one of it running, although it is kind a hard to see. Let me know what you think. And if I could get an admin type to move this to the finished projects, I would appriciate it, didn't wanna upload all the pics again. Thanks.

    K, here comes the flame thrower,

    From his description of the truck so far, he will get Colored Ignition wires, Colored Pulleys, , a fart can exhaust. I'm also guessing some Neon to spruce up the engine bay, and the bottom of the car.

    Seriously though, what kinda power mods you doin, or is it just gonna be a "look alike"

    Are you going to go with a blower to keep with the Mini-Lightning theme? A nice little turbo would be cool!
