These are our very first of the new range of Carbon Fibre - Hybrid Carbon Complete!



What is our new Hybrid Carbon Complete?

- 100% real carbon fibre construction
- Real carbon fibre skeleton
- our new Hybrid resin developed for ultra high strength, rigidity and ability to withstand significant forces without fracture
i.e. regular carbon bonnets have a brittle gel coat which will fracture when pressed on too hard or when the bonnet is dropped.
- Surface carbon weave is spot on perfect
- underside carbon weave in skeleton / frame is also spot on perfect
- due to the new resin being higher strength, there is no need for extra FRP backing panels, meaning further weight saving.



Dry Carbon / Pre-Preg Carbon is also available for special order only.



We have an intermediate range - Hybrid Carbon



- All same as the Complete but only the skeleton is FRP (using our Hybrid Resin also).

Regular Carbon Bonnet underside...



Due to this using standard resin, it requires FRP skeleton and FRP backing panels for the extra strength

Whereas on the Hybrid version there are no FRP backing plates, because our new Hybrid resin was developed for ultra strength and durability therefore no reinforcement is required... thus further weight saving..



Please note, on the Hybrid Carbon Complete, even the underside carbon weave is spot on! with ultra high gloss finish :)

Roger

yes you are lucky as your trunk is the hybrid version. If you have a chance to compare it with another carbon boot that is currently on the market, you will spot the difference right away.

1) your boot is considerably lighter AND strong than other carbon versions
2) the under side of it is very tidy as there is no raw fibre glass "strings"
3) the only FRP is the skeleton, which is also made using our hybrid resin making it like "flexi plastic". (Full carbon other than the skeleton)
Others on the market is everything else apart from the top skin which is a layer of carbon, the rest of the product is FRP (approx 10% carbon 90% FRP)
4) Fitment is considerably, due to different manufacturing process, the product does not change its shape too much when removing from the mould.

And yes, I am still waiting for your photos matey ;)

I received the R34 GT-R Hybrid Carbon bonnet from you guys.
Does it require any attention regarding engine heat? Is it best to put some heat resistent material (or something) under it?

Also I'm thinking of painting a part of the top of the bonnet.
Any special requirements as opposed to the standard metal bonnet?

If you have a top mounted turbo, then I'd recommend heat resistent sheet stuck of that area of the bonnet.

If you want to paint any part of the bonnet, then prep it up as if you were doing any panel.

Thanks
Albert
