Default Newbie with a cool car??

Not new to the sport, just new to the forum. I have raced on road, off road, and dirt oval for years on and off. I also work in a carbon fiber race shop and I have made a bunch of carbon fiber projects of my own over the years. This has been sitting unused for quite a while so I figured I would get rid of it. I have it in the for sale forum, but I just wanted to post it up here and get peoples opinions of it. I also have a off road buggy if anyone wants to see that.

Care to share how you made the shell? I'm guessing you made a mould from the original lexan shell, laid it up with a very fine weave of carbon, then cut the windows from the original shell to insert into the new one?

Ring the bell! Not quite as easy as you made it sound, but yes that was the basic idea.
