...from the sky roadster forum. Been lurking here for a while, lots of familiar handles here and I really like the community that is developing here.
Looking forward to being a part of it!

Thanks, good to be here.
It will be great if we can get some locals together (your other thread) I know there are a bunch in the area, I have usually ended up joining in with the MASSC group down in CT/NJ. They seem to be far more active - we need to change that!

Thanks!
I definitely like it - I've been doing a lot of browsing in Joe's garage, even gave some serious thought to heading down there for the mod meet. Didn't make it only because I just got back from that area last week (MECCAIII).
I've got some things to add to the 'garage as well when I get some time to reorganize and reupload that stuff here.

Hehe - sorry, I missed that entirely - that's just the bottom edge of the fastlane transponder.
Here is another angle:

Stealthing the transponder may be a future project.

I also embedded the remote display into the dash:

(and there is a cutoff switch for the power to the unit under the boot)
