    FAO Slimshady or anyone else who knows

    How do you open your bonnet, coz i've noticed that your carbon fibre bonnet hasn't got a grill so i was just wondering how you open it??

    The reason why i want to know because i was thinking of getting my bonnet down lke that. I'm not getting a carbon bonnet coz i can't afford one at the moment so was just going to extend my bonnet and get rid of the grill.

    Any help would cool.

    Cheers

    The realese pull has been extended so instead of pulling from the grill you would pull from underneath the bottom of the bonnet. or you could do a project spam and use bonnet pins

    Sorry, missed this post ops:

    Its pretty easy to do, but RJs did it for me cos i wasnt gonna attempt it myself.

    As said above, its simply extended and bent round, with a small carrier bracket holding it in place.

    Its a top job done by the top guys at RJs.

    As for the car being hotter, yeah it runs a bit hotter now, and the fan keeps cutting in to keep it cool.

    But when youre on the move its not too bad, cos the air flow cools the carbon bonnet quite well.
