   Been in touch with Kevin and ordered a Cozy Euro for the C5 once the missus decided she'd enjoy the ride. Have to be creative with the space in the garage but think I'll fit everything in nicely.  :) Currently on it's way to Minneapolis where they'll finalize the shipping charges.
   Went all out on this one, getting the windshield and the cab enclosure. Ordered up some electricals (headlight, signals, terminal blocks, etc) to compliment it, too.
   I know there are less expensive units for sale elsewhere, but I know that backing a sale and after-sale's service are qualities for which Kevin is well known. We actually spent the better part of an hour discussing my interests and needs and Kevin is incredibly helpful and up front about everything from tires to shipping costs. This means a lot, considering some of the sad tales of missing/incorrect parts/instructions regaled across the internet.
   I'll take excellent service over price every time.  ;D And with all the knowledge already available in this forum I'm seriously looking forward to the project!  ;D
   Still debating yes/no on the paint, but plenty of time to decide on that.  ;)

   I've received the 4.25 inch LED Headlight, Bullet LED Turn Signals (front and rear) and a couple spares, a few electrical bus bars, and a couple LED interior light assemblies (front and trunk), and the Clock and Temperature gage. Still lacking a switch for the interior lights, but other than that just itching for the car to arrive.
   It should be here any day, so the suspense is killing me.
   Sort of.  ;D

Those interior lights should be nice! If your new headlight is like mine it will work great for spotting deer at night.  ;)

And, if the suspense does kill you, your misses will appreciate that the crate your new car comes in will make a Cozy Coffin! :o ;D

heloego,

I am currently installing the enclosure on my sidecar, had to elongate a mounting hole on each side, replaced the hook Velcro with a strip made with an adhesive back to attach to the windshield.

   Got here yesterday EARLY! Spent the morning tearing down the crate, and now it's on a furniture dolly while I get the C5 ready to accept it.
   The missus is so excited she can't keep her hands off it!  ;D

   Thanks for the tip on the cab enclosure. Haven't reached that point yet, but tomorrow I hope to have it mounted (with jack stands) until I can get the tire and tube mounted.
   Decided to just have Carl at Southwest Cycles do it for me ($20). Save me a bit of time and mess.

It's quite a bit easier to mount the enclosure before attaching the bike to the sidecar.

On arrival. Something about "Mis pezones..." ;) At least until I started breaking down the "Cozy Coffin". At least 90% of the nails had been "puppy footed". Just sayin'.  ::)
