Hi Guys,

I have been speaking with fibresports (the old AWC) to get them to make a ef el fibreglass bonnet with the ba bonnet bulge, they are looking at making them to suit the standard EF-EL and are also looking making a grill so they can fit the Fairmonts as well.

We need ten people to sign and put a deposit down.

This is a far better option then sticking a bulge onto your orignal bonnet and a fibre glass bonnets are over 20kgs lighter than a standard bonnet.

The bonnets will be $650, deposit will have to be 50%

So if your in put your name down on the list, and also add that your after the fairmont style if applicable.

This has been on the fordforums website for a while these are the names we already have.

1. Choca = CONFIRMED
2. Overkill EF = CONFIRMED
3. mspw = CONFIRMED
4. lockz (fairmont) = CONFIRMED
5. B-1B
6. eldreamin
7. HULK EF (EF FAIRMONT)
8. leadfoot
9.
10.

As you can see only 4 are confirmed, so there is plenty of room, and I am sure more than 10 will not be an issue!

So if you are keen put your name down and we can get the ball rolling!


Cheers!
Choca

Aswell as the question above, is it possible to get them with the XR bonnet scoops? for an added cost of course. Im very tempted but would love to be able to stay with the EF XR scoop look at the same time.

Cheers.

they don't don't come painted no, but I am sure the guys at fibresports and paint it for you you'd just have to give them a call and give them your paint code and work out a price.

with the fairmonts I think it will be 2 bits that will be fitted together? unsure that would be anouther question to ask Wayne at fibresports.

With the xr bonnet scopes, theres nothin to say that you can't fit them, I am sure it would be much easier on the fibreglass bonnet then the standard heavy metal one.

let me know guys, and be sure to tell your friends!!

Ok, i had a EF Fairmont Bonnet converted with the Fibresports BA Bulge, and am very keen for a complet fibreglass one. Well done on getting them to do it, as i offered large dollars for it and they said so. So on that note, count me in for a Fairmont one. Who are where do i send the cash to. I will be back in Sydney in 11 days so am able to collect it anytime after that.

Sweet guys one more to go then we'll organise deposits and it will be on the way!!

I'm not sure if this is going to be a one off thing, but remember you only have to pay 50% up front then the rest when the bonnet is ready, maybe that will help??

let me know

Cheers
Choca

I posted this up months ago.

I'll be in the minute they have a carbon fibre version.

Don't forget to purchase the different bonnet struts aswell - they're about an extra $80.00.

They will be doing a carbon one with this, it just cost more I am thinking of getting the carbon one.

I will talk to Wayne and 100% confirm this, and get a price.

Funny when I e-mailed them re this about 2 years ago now they told me it would never happen as would have a 20 grand developing cost for them.
We considered a group buy but getting 30 odd people was a bit extreme.
They also expressed lack of interest due to the EF being an aging model.

10 people at 700 each is only 7 grand and they're doing them... I wonder what changed.

Funny when i had mine made, they said exactly the same thing, 20k to get it done, so i made one using steel and glass, but a one piece glass one will be gold, and i will have a spare as well.
