    Without promising too much at the moment there are some fun experiments going on at AF with regards to both of your questions ZEE. I am a little uncomfortable revealing too much since both a gen 2 coupe like top and a 3 piece are still a ways off. .. Give me a day or two to think it over.. I was pretty forthcoming with all the info on our new top during the entire process when I could be, and maybe thats the way to go still but we are right at the beginning of the "race top" (coupe looking roof) craziness so who knows. The only other thing I can say about any upcoming products is that Autoform is a business with employees that rely on Steve to make a living and feed families, so there is a necessary time buffer between spending money and time on r&d for new things and making money by producing and selling goods. With the new top, spoiler and upcoming splitter all having completed the r&d stage we can't spend every day all winter going full tilt on engineering for new misc products and forego building parts that generate income. .. Ok ... Now with my disclaimer being said... there are at least 3 new products in one stage or another :) we just have to see how they play out.

    Awesome. Thanks for the update. I messaged Steve regarding the 3 piece and I know everyone was turned off about the "t-top" idea, but he assured me that it's not what everyone is thinking. I would love to see some preliminary shots of what it is projected to look like whenever you do have them. If it is as sweet as I hope it will be, I will buy one for sure!

    There will be a cross between that top and the new style top. Our goal is that It will be the top from this thread with a fastback/coupe style rear for the gen 2... since gen 2 windows are shaped as they are it is feasible to do this as opposed to using the classic Autoform top. Well thats our idea anyways... and it is a couple steps into it already but we reserve the right to hit snags and unexpected calamity at any time. :) oh and it wont be all that inexpensive. I know since you were in contact with Steve you have a better idea of what it takes with both time and money just to get one product out, but if anyone can do it that crazy dude at Autoform can.

    Call up Autoform during normal business hours at 616-392-4909. Rear spoiler is in production but due to a priority project we had to delay the front splitter a little bit but its not too far out.. I will try to narrow down a time frame by next week.
    Thanks
