Wow. Just, wow.
I finally got around to finishing this. On a friend's recommendation, I tested the LI with the front heads behind the grille. I laughed when he made the suggestion to place the heads where they are. I was thinking that surely I would have to move them to vertical positions between the grille slats once I saw the results. So I just slapped some 3M tape on them and stuck them to the flat metal housing for the grille clips. Easy to remove later when I had to replace them, right?
However, I got JTG on every run at every distance -- see pics and videos.
VERY happy with this product. Since it is behind the grille the heads should be well protected from rocks, etc..
My only question -- is the LTI Marksman an easy gun to jam? It sure as hell seems like it if I can get JTG from every angle at every distance when the LI heads are impeded by plastic. The bubbles are placed between grille slats so the receivers have maximum area given the setup.
Given the front results and that the rear heads are comlpetely unimpeded, I'd say my big ass is pretty well covered.
If this is not a statement that the LI rules all, I don't know what is.
Sorry for the shakiness of the videos -- "the camera operator" had to try to balance the camera and the gun and it got a bit unwieldy, but I think he did a good enough job of staying on target long enough for everyone to get the idea.
(The old ZR3 heads are still in the lower front fascia - those are disconnected now but in case they cause some confusion when viewing the photos...)
EDIT: I fixed the links so at least one can now see the full size pics.
and the videos front and rear:
