This arrived at the door a couple of days ago. It is a fibreglass boot lid for my coupe. Looks even better than I expected! If anyone wants one I have the guys email.

That looks damn nice!! Does he make any other panels? I'm keen as mustard for front guards, not to mention kits. A late model sedan bootlid wouldn't go astray (drift car), and bonnet too!

I'm not sure if he makes other parts. As far as I know he made the boot lids for a race car and then made some more to cover the costs. Maybe we should suggest it to him?

I think we should! I've been meaning to learn how to make up fibreglass and moulds etc. Just needs time and money... So naturally I haven't tried yet :lol:

Well, today I bought the Commodore front brake conversion, already done, on crossmember, with 4x100 PCD! Got it for a real good price too. Seems to have aftermarket front springs, a bit of nolathane, and possibly an aftermarket front swaybar. Only thing is, the Commodore setup reduces steering lock for brake clearance. I want to figure out how to get extra lock out of it, although I'm still deciding which car gets the biggest brakes. If I can't decide, they'll go on the grip car (coupe) for whenever I get around to that, although I think I'd rather put them on my TX sedan, because it's my baby.

Yeah I'm dead keen for some more fiberglass! I think we should get a group together and see if we can't convince this guy to make some guards.

im not cashed up currently but fibreglass bits sound good.

@eli: i think you should put the brakes on the grip car. The commodore brakes can pull up my track sedan from 180kph from just before the 3 marks on the corners at mallala over and over without fading or overheating. I havnt 'practiced' with too many other cars on the track, but it seems a gemi with those brakes and the right rubber can outbrake anything. They are probably wasted for any purpose other than grip. Although they do look damn cool through mags :)

Nice! I'll most likely do that - I just want to make sure that my other brakes (for the TX and the TE) are weeeell and truly hills-worthy. I'd rather have fade on the track than in the hills, although matching brakes to the application would be the obvious smart choice. All of them are vented, but I have no idea what a few of them are, I'm still trying to identify. The Commodore brakes are by far the biggest - but the others might be Audi/Volvo/Magna. The smallest set use a Gemini caliper spaced to be wider, with a vented disc. The middle set use a twin pot caliper and a vented disc that's a little larger, and then of course there's the Commodore setup. Hmm.
