I tried to post this in the GB forum but apparently I don't have rights to do so.
I thought I’d let you know, I have sorted out a group buy for some carbon bonnets. Basically a one off is expensive and they suggested I try offering a GB before I go at it alone..... I need 5 to get the price down to Ł659. I think I’m going to struggle to get that number but it’s worth a try.
(Pics just for reference but from the same company)
The mould is still to be made but will be done as soon as I have some definite numbers and will be made in a batch of 5 (can take 2 weeks to dispatch), Special requirements are possible when ordering.
Lightweight replacement bonnets for the Audi A3/S3 facelift (late) 2008 -
These “Road spec” bonnets are a direct replacement, full replica inside and out, supplied ready to bolt-on. The fit is perfect and they weigh less than half that of the original steel item. These are full carbon at 5KG (approx)
The carbon fibre is finished in a high-gloss clear coat, showing off the 2x2 twill carbon fibre weave. (3k, aerospace grade). Dry carbon is vacuum bagged and resin-infused, to ensure zero air bubbles and the lightest possible part.
These bonnets can be painted if you if required.
Let me know if anyone is interested. If I don't get the numbers I may leave it for a while.
