I modified the one original side piece to match the V3 side, but there is still interferance. It needed to be shorteded a bit and the ends rounded off more. If you move the word TACO up 2mm and shorten the pieces accordingly, it would be perfect.


Newest one on the left, modified one on the right.



Newest one on top, modified one on bottom.



After I made the modifications, the canopy fits perfect everytime without extra pressure required to install.

I just received the NEW V3 Anti Taco Kit from Kevin because of a mix up in parts on the last kit. This new V3 kit is right on the money. It is modified EXACTLY like the suggestion I posted right above this post. It gives PERFECT clearance for the canopy to fit.

Thank You Kevin...

I ordered mine on August 8th but I didn't get an order # from the company? Just a Paypal transaction #. Is that normal? I'm anxiously awaiting its arrival!

What is the correct method of assembly? Is ir supposed to be glued together or do we use the hole in the center and install a flat head screw?

I think the website was down for a while. For the time being, we could buy the metal battery tray from KDE which is longer than stock tray and have the similar protection effect as this upgrade. The down side is that KDE battery tray is much more $$$$ ...
