    Carbon goodies

    Just gauging interest at the min..

    My friend makes fibreglass and carbon fibre parts.
    Ive given him a 2.2 engine cover that he is going to take a mould from and he will be producing a limited run of Carbon fibre replica's.

    So just gauging intrest at the mo to see how many people would be interested.

    Hes also making some Gsirear arch stone chip protectors, these will be fibreglass gelcoat and the quality is top notch, again, any interest.

    Not sure on prices yet as he is unsure of the costs that are going to be incurred making them.

    Would of thought it would make more financial sense for him to make 1.6 16v Ecotec covers with them being the most brought model of Astra G...and I've got one *hint hint*

    Ello Matt, still got very limited access to the net, none of my pc's are running right!!
    Plus work is a nightmare at the min, too many cars needing fixed not enough hours to fix em lol!

    I suppose he can do lots of bits, justa case of making a mould, what bits did you have in mind???

    I did suggest making other engine covers but i think most of the normal ones can be bought elsewhere quite easily, just not seen bugger all made for the 2.2

    Andy, vectra 2.2 is different.

    I think he will do a few others, but bear in mind that there is 2 2.2 engines in the vectra, the z22se and the z22yh.
