    Carbon- Fiber nose cone arrived on Friday

    New Carbon-Fiber nose cone was delivered to me Friday..

    Will forward some more pics when installed.

    Its so light, about half the weight of the original.

    Inside View, its missing a headlight post, will need to make something up with some fiberglass & resin.
    Doesn't have any posts for the air intake fixings either but looks like it was made that way.

    Just installed a Microwave sensor to my Meta Alarm.

    Now it warns if too close (beep)..

    Then if closer than 6" all around, it sets of the alarm.. No movement or touching required.

    Now i can sleep at night, as its on a public road (lots of Friday/Sat night roamers around)

    It's mounted face up, will not go off with smaller bodies, I can screen the rear of the sensor if it does start giving grief..

    the meta has no warn input, I added a small buzzer, sounds pretty good.. The output on the sensor emits a short signal then resets ready for the next warn.. As you go too near, sounds like a factory fitted piece of equipment.

    Yes, was talking to the seller before Xmas about it.. He had a rear seat unit too back then..

    It's not bad.. Very thin, but looks really well made and strong.

    That looks ace. Is it a carbon/Kevlar comp?, the inside looks like Kevlar.
