My first impression was "What a waste of a Hatch" but after looking at the photos it's obvious they went the long way around and brought one back to life instead...

Plus, it looks like it could be put back to 'normal' without too much trouble?

I don't mind the bumperless front end either. It ties in well with the paint job.

Don't mind the electric hatch so much as they saved a dead torrie however that thing above needs a bullet.

Great to see someone doing something different rather than just cloning. Too many people just put in the biggest motor and paint and don't think outside the box. Lots of scope in electric.

I've wanted to do an electric LC for a while. You need a transmission to make it a road going concern though. That one in this thread is just for 1/4 mile blast. Cool machine though.

I'm sure this has been posted here but in case you have doubts about electric this may change your mind.
