Hey Katch & Kathy sup mah 935 familia. Ya bro that'd look sick! You could put like gauges in their for your nitrous and a purge button for kicks so when someone pushes it at the show it'll spray nitrous in their face rofl. Here's a piece I designed then created the Carbon Fiber portion length and dimensions out of the paperbag template. I'm not sure if you saw it yet at the last show. I made it so it covers all the bolt areas. I like how you'll be covering up the excess space very innovative. Anyway when you look down the big holes in my bay the C-one vented underpanel replaces the dirty plastics so they don't show. See pics.
