Only because there are about 123,999 FRR owner/builders and only approx 150 Hurricane owner/builders.    We are a rare breed like a fine wine ;)

Paul,

I'm seriously looking at adding EPAS under the dash too - you're correct there's no room under the hood! Please Post if you do decide to add it under the dash. I would love to see how you attach it to the frame and how you clock it to be hidden - I agree I don't want to see it either. The reason I was on the forum yesterday was to see if anyone had pics with the dash removed to see if it looked like there is room. You're lucky in that you have the brake and clutch peddles coming from the floor - mine are old style and hang from under the dash. 

Can you tell me what EPAS you have? I see they also have kits available for the EPAS to add the speed sensor so it will adjust the assist according to speed vs. the potentiometer.

That was one of the motivating factors to do it. On my first build, I had the ECU mounted upside down on the top of the footbox and every time I wanted to do something on it, I had to lay on my back. Getting too old for that.

I have a buddy who put the EPAS on his Factory Five and he gave me a unit with all the pieces. It's laying on the footbox right now to see if its worth the issues to put it in. I want to hide it so I maintain the originality, plus there's no room in the engine bay for it - too full of motor  ;D

I'll keep you informed

Paul

Looks Great!

I wish I would have mounted my electronics the way you did - then I would have the room for this -

without needing to move anything.

Have you looked into these EPAS units? They sell them new too but the price to go used is about 10th of new.

I didn't mind the manual steering at first but I guess I'm getting old...

Interesting placement of all the modern day electronics in the passenger foot box!
As always, very nice work!
