    I should think so.  I'm already planning a V2 so it's a bit lighter and with a slightly bigger intake.

    I think the biggest possible would be a 100mm circular. I could go the route of pretty much just using the backing as a giant scoop but I think keeping the lens shape helps with aerodynamics.

    I have the drawings drawn out on AUTOCAD that I've done myself. 

    £265 delivered i paid but you got to form the rear window yourself.

    thats including window openning but not the slider kits (slider kits from deemontweeks)

    I've done all 5 windows myself and painted the black edge (OEM look) and just rivited them on......Simples

    giving away my secrets!

    i used these guys, the for my windows, the front are not curved and its supposed to sit inside the rubber seals and be riverted at the bottom,

    but because the windows not got the curve in it, the window pops out of the seal.

    So i resorted to tiger sealing the :tut: in.

    that'll do for the price tiger seal or i'll use no more nails i don't mind :laugh:

    If you need any tips on cutting the doors out just drop me a PM and il send you some pictures of mine.

    (if your removing the inner impact bars aswell) Make sure you cut the corners with a curve, don't do straight 90 degree cuts as the door losses its support strenght and drop every time you open them. (look crap)
