HI

That full carbon bonnet is technically not full carbon as you can see the CSM on the back. Still looks really nice though.

I can do it for $1350 without the air freight.
The full carbon bonnet has only one layer of FRP under the carbon shell for rigidity which stops dimples developing in the carbon shell. The one I imported from America is made the same way. To make it only with carbon would require double the amount of carbon which would cost much more and wouldn't be any lighter. If you can find a bonnet of this quality that's cheaper I'd be very interested to see it.

me too!
a bloke here at my work does do carbon but mainly f/glass, he used to do boat hulls/mast's in both fg and cf, for racing yachts etc etc.
he quoted me to do customised inner door skins with integrated handle and speaker mould (for a 6" in the door) also with a smallish 240Z logo embosed into the pattern for approx 480$ each side.
not bad really but the carbon weave is pretty $$$'ey and so is the epoxy, i asked about f/glass with a CF finishing cover, and still around 400$ mark each.

BenZed,

any chance you can find out if they do the fibreglass repro C110 GT-R grill? (since they do other C110 stuff, i am hoping so!)

Hi. I'm just interested in finding out the weight of the carbon fibre compared to the standard panels and etc.

Thanks.

I would say very light - we weight a standard bonnet at 17KG and a fibreglass unit at 3.5KG so I assume a CF will be a little less so maybe 3.4KG = big saving there I guess that is why Nissan put the FG on the 432-R from the factory.

Thanks for the info, NZeder. That gives me a fair idea. I was hoping BenZed could give me some numbers though. Ben?
