just test fitted it, fits perfectlty...
gonna organise a paint job for it soon-ish
Mate, that is gonna look wicked - where did you get it from and how much?
well its originally from
its normally $750nz
i bought it from a guy that changed his mind/needed the cash
for $520nz picked it up last night
Are you going to match the body colour or contrast it or something?
match it to the car...
im not into the different coloured bonnet look...
looks cheap and as if you couldnt afford a paint job...
ive taken it back off the car for that reason
just a Q about the vent.. are you worried about water getting inside the engine bay?
it can have water sheild fitted underneath if need be.
ones from evo will work fine i assume..
looks the part...
Ace man, I cant wait to see how it looks all finished then.
Looks fantastic Carsten! Nice work, especially for the price!!
What sort of water shield are you referring to? Any ideas what a freight company would charge to send something over to to Aus?
SLY-031 -> it would be riculously cheaper to pick up the evo 6 main vent and side air duct (ive got one of those sitting here anyway) and glass it on, im sure if it was a weight thing a full fibreglass mold could be taken and reproduced as is currently being down with the evo 3 kit that ive made for my mirage/2door lancer.
the entire process would cost more but if there was a bodykit company that wished to do the mold for you, it would end up a lot cheaper and they can resell more of them
Hey, was it just a straight fit or was there some modifying that was needed to get it on
not just weight (my fibreglass one feels 2-3kg lighter at least).... unless you get a good panel shop to do it, its quite easy to spot that its just been slaped on there, and $$ wise prob a shit load more expensive get vents put on the factory bonnet, and time consuming,
shit loads, prob cheaper by slow boat, i would imagine upto $200 for shipping of a bonnet
it is a bonnet specifically made for the legnum/galant and is 100% bolt on
bolts to the factory hinges and has a bonnet catch already attached...
all it needs is some paint and some heat sheilding.
carsten your the man....hehe...
thats a nice one u got over there....
post the picture when u got it painted....
These just showed up on Ebay
(copied from Ebay thread)
Carbon fibre Evo style bonnets ~$650 delivered.
I'm waiting to hear back as to whether or not it includes bonnet catch and mesh.
ive seen that sytle in RL, its evo 7-ish
it comes with sheilds and bonnet catch
its moulded of a prefacelift bonnet, so is very flat,
and the vent looks all wrong, very cheap and ugly IMO...
the clear coat goes yellow after a while aswell,
heres RL pic's
these flatter it... in person looks like cheap shit.
mind you a good CF evo bonnet is around $1200nz (i would fork out for the quality item rather than buy the cheap ebay one you have there)
cheers for the warning Gly!
