full fibreglass?
that's crazy.
there's no way it could ever be engineered, if you crashed your insrance company could cancel your payout, plus the fibreglss exploding on impact wouldn't be pretty...

make me a carbon fibre bonnet for my EF, with the bulge. some yobo quoted me 2,500 locally!
AWC won't as they reckon there developing costs will be 20,000 or something like that.

i've already done it.full fibreglass bonnet with bulge.but they are separate and where joined together later.
i will be joining a fibreglass bulge to a steel bonnet in the new year to take a full mould off but i just don't have the time athe moment.
also be warned making the inner of the bonnet is quite easy but getting the bonnet catch to work is a b**ch.
that $2500 for the carbon fibre ef bonnet is a very good price considering the work involved.
the full fibreglass ed bonnet would be approx $650.00 complete.

i'm talking ED but i've seen your bonnet and i would be more than happy to take a mould of it (i think that there would be a market for them) but the distance is a problem.lol.
