Question. Don't have a 2nd R (yet). If a person has more than one, and has won once can he enter the 2nd time?

Texasbaehr, just to clarify --- "Custom gauge pod on dash with TPMS, outside Temp and voltage" is the three on the dash and also where did you get them?

Yes, pod is on the dash and is homemade. shell is formed from a sheet of mild steel and covered in leather. Two outside gauges are small led panels mounted behind blue Lexan. TPMS readout mounted in the center, Gauge rings made to match the A/C knobs. Right gauge rotates from Voltage to Inside Temp to time.

Flying Dog looks SUPERB! Though, wish we could see the interior as well -- seats, dashboard, etc..
Sorry, I guess I was trying to show off the dash logo that SSRon2 made for me.
The whole interior, with the additions listed, is in the same excellent condition as the exterior of our SSR.
