Hey guys,

Not sure if I should be posting on here as I'm a newbie and not a paying trader (yet). Without saying too much, I am a bodykit supplier and bodywork specialist in the Japanese market (www.knight-racer.co.uk).

We stock Skyline, Supra and scooby parts off the shelf, but not any VW (yet).

Looking at the demand for Carbon bonnets, we might be able to get something going. I've got 2x MK5 and 2x MK4 carbon bonnets on the way in 2 weeks, which i can offer to members on here cheap. If I get good feedback, then I will consider becoming a sponsor/trader.



Thanks
Albert

mines arriving in a few weeks for my mk5 so I'll get some pics up asap.
Iv seen the Mk4 one and Im pretty sure its standard shape with the badge cut out. Having said that I think bert could get one sorted without the cut out....?

Yep the mk 4 has a cut out for the centre badge. Once Rupo's bonnet arrives, we will stick some photos up on here. He will be at the pod showing it off anyway ;)

As mentioned before, these will be the first bonnets for the golfs that we've brought over, so we will test fit them on Rupo's car when they are in (within couple weeks).

We supply a lot to the jap cars are they are a very good fit, with the washer jet holes pre-drilled for you. You just have to bolt them onto the hinges.

Heres a few fitted:

As far as translucent paint, I dont think it will give it that effect, more like blue carbon weave. We have Yellow, Silver and gold available.

Here's a few examples:

Looking at around £500 each.
Not sure on the exact weight until they get here, but they are considerably lighter than the stock bonnet.

Has anything happened with this hood.

I also have 2 quick questions:

1. Does anyone have a rough idea of the weight difference?

2. Can you get vented ones as well?
