Just found another supplier of FRP and Carbon parts in Japan. A little bit cheaper than Restored and some different parts for Zeds:

240Z style FRP bonnet $720
240Z style carbon bonnet $960
260Z style FRP bonnet (with vents) $760
260Z style carbon bonnet (with vents) $1000
240/260Z FRP cowl top $280
240/260Z carbon cowl top $350
240Z FRP rear garnish (3pc) $390
240Z FRP front guards $1100/pair
240Z FRP rear hatch $700
240Z carbon rear hatch $1000
S20 engine FRP cam cover copy $440
240ZG FRP flare set $260

Also in case you're interested, they do bonnets for S13, S14, R31 and R32. Also flares for AE86.
If there is enough interest I may start stocking these parts.

Have you seen the fit and quality of the carbon 240Z bonnet? I'd be seriously tempted if they are well made..

Would be good to remove the roof skin to replace with carbon fibre, rather than an overlay

yours in the wannabe s30!! ;D

Pfft, what ever man.
Go sell some more viagra

i have removed the majority of the roof skin and only left about 100 mm around the perimeter so i have somewhere to adhere the carbon fibre skin

I'm going to bring some in anyway so we'll see. I've seen products made by that company before and they were very good.

Restored don't do steel repair panels, but they can supply the following parts you need:
Fibreglass rear apron ($283) and rear panel ($472). Attached pic is a carbon rear panel.
Fibreglass complete front guards $1070 pair.
Those are normal GT-R rear flares for the GC10

Hey Ben, another question re the carbon bonnets, do you know if they are full carbon or with a FRP frame?

You can order FRP, carbon on FRP or full carbon from Restored. As for the other mob, still waiting for confirmation, probably just carbon over FRP.

Ok I just got two bonnets in, one is a full carbon 240Z bonnet from restored (on the right side of the pic, $1750), the other is an Aerodesu carbon-over-FRP bonnet ($960).
Aerodesu is now the Otomoto brand for carbon parts I have found from suppliers other than Restored.
The Restored bonnet is extremely light at only 4.59kg, but also noticeably more flexible than the other bonnet, with only one thin layer of FRP used to help the single layer of carbon keep its shape.
The carbon frame is well finished with threads in place for the bonnet latch and long bolts supplied to suit the thick hinge mounts. Along the edges there is perhaps more resin than needed, but overall a very good bonnet.
The Aerodesu bonnet weighs 5.91kg and thanks to two thicker layers of fibreglass behind the carbon it is noticeably more rigid.
The fibreglass frame is painted matt black which helps the appearance, though some of the edges are a bit sharp. It doesn't have any threads for the bonnet latch so you will need to use bolts. The hinge mounts are still fibreglass, but a bit thinner than on the Restored bonnet so you can use the normal bolts. The carbon surface looks just as good as the Restored bonnet as they are both hand-laid, but arguably better at the edges with less excess resin. Hope this extra info helps people make a decision  :D

Another part I just got in is a Restored FRP rear hatch. I got this because I wasn't happy with the locally-made hatch I have on my car now.
It has all threads pre-fitted to the fibreglass and a very good black gelcoat finish on the outside. The frame has no coating but like the bonnet in my last post it has all of the bolt threads pre-fitted.
The hatch weighs just 2.83kg. When I remove the other hatch I will weigh it for comparison, but I am sure already that this one is much lighter.
A standard steel hatch without the window or rubber is 8.91kg
