Looks good. Now do black with black windshield frame preez.
I wanted the windshield frame orange originally because we had no top.

Same/similar to the Goodwin one that was posted a few weeks back or completely different fabricator?

Looks good so far.

Same, DG Motorsports This one is a Prototype. It is a race skin. It does have a partial clamshell for the mounting points and weather seals. it will have a polycarbonate rear window. Not sure what the final production piece will weigh but I am guessing 20 pounds or so.

Thanks Alec. Kinda preferring the orange top. I thought it might be too much but it works.

For some reason, the all-orange weirds me out. Seems like it wants to be covered in contingency decals and confederate flags.

I'm really hoping that someone at least noticed the "K&Y LOW FRICTION AΝAL LUBRICANTS" sticker.

Highjacked this photo from the V8 Roadster's Facebook. Looks like they have been busy with the LFX swap.

The only problems I see with all the LFX swaps is that they aren't available at crate engines (right?) and the transmissions seem to suck. I do think they sound pretty good, though.

Here's another view to show why the LFX is a good choice

It's a very cool swap, no doubt. I'd never do it -- it'd be LS3 for me. But LFX very very cool.
