Has it already been fitted to #107? I'd love to see some close up shots...

We had only one hot day so far, two weeks ago. We are still waiting. Tom is not looking forward to this, since he is worried that he will crack the glass.

I told him that there periscope mirrors are now delivered with a new windshield included, so we might as well try it. The worst that can happen is that I will have to order a new windshield after all.

I spoke to Nick van de Zouwen from the Spyker Factory. It turns out that it is not only tricky to remove the existing mirror foot, but even after successful installation of the periscope mirror, the window can crack spontaneously.

Probably the aluminum foot is too heavy and will flex the windshield when you drive over bad pavement.

For now we'll not install the periscope mirror. This will make Tom happy.

man, i have to tell you that I am a big fan of the white. It does not show the lines as well as some but that is one hell of a classy set up. I usually very vocal about my distain for the red top as well but that sucker looks spectacular. the interior is red too? I think I actually found a color combo that involves red interior that I like.


What is the marketing on the side/front?

It's marketing from a strategy & webdesign office in Amsterdam called "eFocus".
They have created the "Spyker events website"
More info on the website from eFocus can be found here :eFocus/
