There's an Autokoexenon one in Ottawa, Canada. Asking $2000 CAD (about $1550 USD). Check out the add here;

I am hoping to have the fastbacks ready for proper production in the next few weeks. I'm sorry if I didn't reply to any emails, I don't check the Lightyear email acc as I haven't set up the page properly and haven't got to that stage of taking orders properly just yet. There is a lot to do, but it's getting close now. At least they are being made and all the little details are being taken care of.
Is there a chance you can do a group buy by region? I'm sure northern CA and southern CA would both have enough interest to have a 20+ order bulk shipment make sense

Couple of other questions:
1) On the trunk, some images you supply show a ducktail spoiler and some do not. Are those your two options? Are there any other options that we can make?
2) What about replacement windows? Are you using some sort of polycarbonate? If those windows yellow or get scratched will you provide an option for replacement windows or at least the template so that we can make them ourselves?

I would totally be willing to go in on a group buy for that fastback top depending on the price. It looks amazing.

Hi guys, been busy with production and driving...
To answer your questions-
1. The NA trunk comes with a built in spoiler. The trunk was so flat I didn't like the look of it. The NB trunk has a nice shape that flows with the fastback, so has no spoiler. However, any aftermarket spoiler can be fitted.
2. The window's are UV rated polycarbonate (Lexan). I can offer replacements, or a template.
I will look into a group buy in October/November.

Here is a video we just made, it is the guide to assemble and install. But gives you all the info you need.

What kind of price are we looking at? I need to know how much money to put aside for this.

Hi, find my Facebook page Lightyear Composites, and find the post asking people to put there name down. We need to get numbers in each area to get the shipping prices down. Once we have a few in one area, I can get accurate shipping costs. Initial quotes are indicating the fastback inc shipping will cost well under $2000US delivered to the east coast. This is part or full container loads.

Love my Autokonexion one! I am sure you can chase one down. Mine is full carbon fiber so itís more race car quality that street. Itís pretty thin and you can see pin holes of light through it.

Lightyearís version looks to be similar. Iíd feel good about that one too!

We just started the install process CCP Fabrication made the Fastback skin only. Blackbird Fabworx is fitting the top to the cage. Fitment is really good
