Also, why is DARKO no longer available ?
And finally, to get back to the posted topic of the template, what was the Cd of the template model ?
( Appologies if I didn't see that you had posted it already. )
* I bought a Viper front windshield and used it as tooling to create a wet-layup, lightweight composite facsimile I carried in the boat-tail.
* When installed, it covered the cowl area also, so it not only represented the more 'compound' Dodge glass, but also an active cowl fairing, as GM used on production cars earlier on.
* DARKO went under. Gumby-79 posted that Layne had it on the market for $ 600,000. He'd spent $ 1,300,000 out-of-pocket to create it. A tremendous loss to low-buck racers , college, Winter Oympic wannabes, and nut-cases like myself.
* I've just posted the 'baby' template Cds at # 14-permalink, to keep all the data together.
