    Kind of uncool for one sponsor to jump in on another sponsor's thread. Okay with you if others do that to your product threads?

    I didn't know this thread was changed to a sponsor's thread. I agree it's uncool but maybe Tsportline didn't know it was changed.

    It's been in the sponsor area for awhile - and I'm pretty sure the sponsor agreement includes keeping any promotion of your products to your threads ...

    Bonnie, I would agree with you if the thread was started by Koncept Cars. However, in this case, the thread was started by an individual back in 2013 and the thread just happened to be moved to a specific sponsor. Therefore, I don't view the post as egregiously ill mannered as I would normally.

    Hi TMC,

    I just wanted to give an update on the ETA of the tail lights. I've included my original post from 2/25:

    "CF Tail Light production outline:

    - We're set to start production on Wednesday 3/4
    - Creating the molds should be another 2-3 weeks
    - The last week of March/first week of April we'll start producing confirmed orders
    - The first order deliveries are expected the second and third week of April

    We'll provide local installations at the same rate as SCs."

    The next step we have is taking all of the imperfections out of the molds. We'll then lay and cure the CF over the molds. Once we pull the test set, we'll correct all of the surface edges to ensure fitment. Based on the timeline above we're about 1 week behind schedule. I anticipate the first sets being ready by the third and fourth week of April.

    I'd like to personally thank everyone for your continued patience and support. Please let me know if you have any questions in the meantime. I'm available anytime to discuss. Enjoy your weekend!

    That's great; thanks for the update, Kofi. Looking forward to switching out the bland black ones on the car. Is there a timeline on the rear spoilers? It would match really well with the carbon fiber tail light housing.

    To clarify this issue, we moved this thread to the Sponsor area as it basically turned into a thread primarily focused on the offerings of a Sponsor. However, due to the fact that this thread was not originally started by a Sponsor, it is fair for other Sponsors to jump in and mention their offerings to Members inquiring about specific types of products.

    Hi spiderguy. Hopefully this week we'll have finished pics of a rear spoiler that's in progress.

    Nice hood pieces! Does the CF wrap completely around the edges of each piece? Can you see where the top and bottom of each part is glued together? Either way, Nice work!

    Dennis, I don't remember the post number. Standing in front of the cars it was the second or third post from the left. 70 amps at 204 volts. I arrived with 100 miles and unplugged at 152 miles. It charged at 70 amps the entire time.

    Cool, that would be Post 3, I was on Post 6 and arrived around 70 miles and it charged at 61A to start, then dropped really quickly (about 3 minutes) to 44A at 205V...

    Sounds like something was overheating. Your PEM maybe?

    Thanks Henry. Had I known Kofi was going to post the pix, I would have shined her up a bit.

    Actually the pictures of the hood don't do it justice. The bright sunlight kinda distorted the image. The CF weave has a deep dark look, smooth and ultra high gloss.
