Never seen one of these

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=180536318305

If any of you guys know about this kit let me know. I really do not know anything about it. I just tried to describe it as I see it.

Wow, news to me... looks like a low-end Saito competitor, but nice enough for sure... worthy of a rescue.

I wanna know how they cast those white metal cowl vents with such a thin wall...

For the record, here are some captures:

Have to see if I can find it.

Somebody definitely has deeper pockets than me. Ouch. So much for building something while I recoup.
