Carlo is going to be jealous, he was looking for one of these a while back. Just clean up those wires and you are in good shape. :)

you know every fuckin thing you say vinze is negative, i said i didnt care about your opinions, just keep them to yourself, this is just so people can see what it looks like and decide if they would like to do it or not,,,,so id appreciate it if you kept your negative and pessimistic comments to yourself

That kit used to be made. MVP said they don't stock them anymore and the one person that was selling them wanted a ridiculous price for it.

seriously man,,,it would cost less to do it yourself,,,my initial plan was to make the shape of the pod out of stirophome then coat it with fiberglass,,,this would result it a perfect fitting pod and look realllly snazzy,,,but i, along with others like myself, got lazy so i went the ebay route :D
