Default Nose cone height

I have the book and built my chassis to the Haynes book dimensions. For some reason I cannot find the height of the Haynes nose cone in the book. I am trying to decide if I should purchase a nose made to the dimensions of the book or build my own. How hi is the highest point of the nose above the front frame-rails?

Thanks, Craig

People say that it's a bit wider than the the Locost nosecone, but the other dimensions should match. Here's the best resource on the shape and size of a Locost nose there is:

(Quick answer: 229 mm above top rails)

Jack is in Oregon, he makes the Haynes nosecone, maybe try giving him a quick call, http://www.kineticvehicles.com/index.html#whatsnew the one I got from him is 8 inches or 203mm high at the top of the lip wear the hood or bonnet would sit.
