Hi Roy,

Are the carbon bootlids ready to fit or do they need paint or laquer?

Cheers

Same here, I'd just like to see some pics on a car. Especially close-ups of the usual problem areas. If it all checks out

what fit issues have you guys heard of in te past then ?

The first one should be on the car in say 3 weeks , i can then post up pics no problem . This will of course delay any orders ....
alternatively you can take us at our reputation , along with a written g'tee with each order that we will put right any fit / finish issues you may have .
You will not have any such issues .........Lets just say the manufacturer is very well known in the racing world ...

I love that it is made in the US. There is a couple of perks to that, shpping is cheaper, and if there is any problems it can be handled quicker. Well as stated in the post before this one, we want lots of pics of this installed, That way we can see if fitment is right, and gaps if any(hopefully not) Now I know this is CF, is there any painting or laquer required? Also does the toolkit kit fit in? If anyone has any other questions that have not been asked, please chime in.
