    I have been looking around the rhdjapan.com website.

    And found this:
    Type I:
    https://www.rhdjapan.com/home/products/product_detail_new.php?int_product_id=2454#
    Type II:
    https://www.rhdjapan.com/home/products/product_detail_new.php?int_product_id=2455#

    I never seen them on person. But I think it will look nice. May be someone has the picture of them on galant? So I have a bit of sense of how it will fit on galant.

    Does anyone ordered stuff from rhdjapan.com? How did it go?
    Buying from them is even much more cheaper than buying in speed shop here in my country even with the shipping charges.

    I am more fond of the evo style but I wont be able to get one here. I can have someone to make a custom one. But from the experience the result won't worth the money your spend. So this one might be a subsitute to get the hot air out the engine bay.

    The pictures shown above is the type I. The type II is the almost identical but bigger size than type I. I have measured the galant bonnet. I'm pretty sure that the type I is the one for galant bonnet. Type II is too big.

    what do you guys think?

    If you look in the EVO Bonnet thread, I posted pictures of this type of vent on my Skyline. I personally do not think that this style of vent suits the curves of the legnum/galant.

    What is stopping you from getting an EVO style bonnet?

    hmmm interesting choice.. i love the Z TUNE bonnet on the nismo cars and i think it could look wicked on a legnum or galant. but in saying that i think sly031 could be right on this as the curves are totaly diffrent..
    good luck on it anyway and if you go ahead i would love to see some pics..

    Yeah, don't get me wrong I would like to see it. It is just something that I wouldn't do on my car, and seeing as the car is yours, go your hardest ;)

    can't get the evo style bonnet here is my country. And custom work is not an option. None of the custom shop can make a clean and nice custom body work. It only nice if you see it in the magazine. But if you see in the real life, it sucks big time and not worth the money you spend.

    I;ll chek the picture that u posted....

    Can you not import a bonnet from Japan or Australia? That way you only need to paint it up....

    Yeah, I thought you would have gone with another option if possible.

    Sucks to hear mate, all the best with it, don't forget pics when it's done(if it gets done).

    here is the picture:
    [​IMG]

    what do you guys think?

    The uras bonnet itself should be a bit smaller then the one on the picture.

    Here's another photochop without the blue (sorta).

    I wouldn't put it on my car.

    cheers
