I have one!

A BGW Spectre California Speedster!

I agree, the rear section is too high looking. The rear deck lid is small and does use the original hinges, but I mounted mine with hood pins. The stock hinges hit the dual Webbers. I promissed everone I'd post some pictures and I will (when I get back from Mexico! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img] ) The kit is very well made and the figerglass is nice and thick. It's also very straight! It wouldn't look right fenderless because the rear is actually wider than stock and the rear apron cover goes sticks over the fenders by about 2 inches per side. It will look good with the rear at stock height and the front slammed! I WILL drive it by summer! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img]

Nickster -

Do you have any construction shots? Would it be too difficult to do the following:

1) extend the rear deck lid cut further up on the rear body (or are there support/inner structure issues to deal with?)

2) cut the cowl area back some to get rid of the rise, enlarges the cockpit area. I picture the windshield cut down about 3" with a Carson top.

VERY rough picture:
