    Convex Mirror Glass for Hippo Mirrors

    You use a glass cutter. It leaves rough edges, of course, so you grind the edges smooth on a belt sander.

    Convex Mirror Glass for Hippo Mirrors

    Just saw this. I used convex mirrors from a Chrysler Minivan. Laying the OEM mirror over the minivan one (that I bought at Advance Auto, IIRC), I found where I wanted to cut out the new mirror based on the curvature of the minivan mirror. I then cut it, and trimmed to have a smooth edge. Both...

    Looking for nice pictures of garages

    Alas, only one is mine. But it was fun to have the garage filled up with as many SLCs as it could fit!

    Looking for nice pictures of garages

    I am remiss in not showing some pictures of my old garage. I've moved, so much of it is in storage now, awaiting a new home. As it was recently:

    Sl-C or a finished car?

    An R8, or any "normal" mid-engined car really isn't a competitor for an SLC, IMO. If all you want is good or very good performance in a mid-engined car, the best value is always in a production car. I like to think that most people build a car like the SLC because it represents a way to be very...

    Access to configuration page

    The configurator is back up, after a long rebuild caused by complete destruction from overseas hackers. But it's back with some new options, and new defenses against the same kind of destruction. Please let me know if you see bugs or problems. It's early on, and we know of some bugs we are...

    Ken's SLC build thread

    Here's how I did mine. Foam carved to shape, later followed by a couple of layers of Kevlar/CF fabric. If you use wood to cover the entire lower part it destroys the aero designed into the splitter.

    Access to configuration page

    The inadvertent link to the configurator is fixed now- as soon as the configurator is ready, it will be released and we can all enjoy playing with it! Until then, please be patient while we rebuild it. Thanks!

    Mounting the Superlite emblems

    There are no center caps in the Superlite logo from the factory, just the ones in post #5 above. Those are way to big to use as center caps- they were designed to be mounted on the hood. If you want wheel center caps, you have to make them, or have someone make them for you. It wouldn't be...

    Registration in Fl.

    There are several of them in FL- Wayne M, and a couple of others come to mind. There's an empty lot next to me, though! :)

    Ticking sound while turning right

    It sounds like there might be something loose or damaged in the rack. I'd be sure to fix that before I headed out on track again if it were my car. I'd also check to see if the bolts holding the rack to the chassis were tight, as well as the bracket under the box you showed in the picture...

    Those look like Cayenne door handles- are they?
