The linear actuator I used I purchased on Ebay for $160. Its a 4" 12v actuator, and moves at 25mm/sec, with a force of 240lbs. There are cheaper ones available, but they are not as strong, and not rated to withstand the enviorment of an engine compartment (heat, moisture, vibrations). Its controlled by a feedback slide mounted above it, to tell the actuator where and when to stop. This information is fed to a circuit board which controls the actuator, and the circuit board is controlled by the paddles on the steering column. Its a vey simple, reliable system. I hve had it in my car for a few years now, and have never had a problem with it. I had to make the dot matrix display in the instrument cluster with LED"S, I couldnt find one the right size. I made a simple decoder box with diodes to control the display, and it gets a signal from the feedback slide to tell it what to display.

Oem bumper matches up? Or do you mean modded g28? I've wanted to do this with the LP670 bumper and to eventually turn it into that. Love the sv look.

Yes, the OEM bumper fits, but you have to slightly modify the fenders to accept. Its not a big change, just within the last half inch of where the fender meets the bumper. That is why the car is masked off. After I prefit the bumper and made the change to the fenders, I had to re-spray the fenders again. The gray area on the bottom edge of the fender is the area that had to be changed. I first made a mould of the OEM bumper, then ran a fiberglass replica out out it. I had to give the original bumper back Sad

Do you still have the mold? Are you selling or planning on selling bumpers?

I have never made any mould for the reason of selling parts. I had to give the bumper back, thats why I made a mould of it, so I could have something to make replacement bumpers from. I could make a bumper to sell if somebody needs one for their build.

Hey Evolutions! I remember you from MadMechanics Smile What do you need to know about the doors and windows? Assembly? What kit are you building

Do you still have a clutch pedal in your paddle shift setup? Do you have to use the clutch pedal? (if there is one)
