I take it part of the specification said something like
" It must look like the original Jeep"
why a CITIS system, on such a small vehicle which surly should be as simple and light as possible.
Was Homer involved in the design, or did some woman get a hold of the options sheet?
There is an expression over here
"Trying to put a quart in a pint pot"
