    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 :D

    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.

    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)
