FRP Items?

Postby Lukena » Tue Nov 18, 2014 12:53 pm

Hey guys, quick one, and another '' about me '' I use to sell FRP kits at good prices, good quality and was able to get the harder to source items, hehe.

Anyway, I have found some things that I am thinking about getting made up, I can already supply kits & fenders for the AE86 but after looking on Yahoo last night I found some really cool stuff :D

Bolt on fenders, bonnets, vented bonnets, doors, boots! It isn't going to happen next week, but if anyone has any ideas of what I can look into bring to the UK to mold or get into the UK to sell directly ( The genuine stuff ) I am sure I can work something.

Currently, its around £80 to ship 4 bolt on arches from JP to UK.

Bonnets are £250 approximately from JP to UK.

Let me know what it is your trying to save some weight on or want made up as a cheaper alternative, if I can find it or make it, it can be done.

Can you work in kevlar too. Kevlar has a lot of flex to it so can often pop back into shape after light knocks.

I agree on the Kevlar too.
Carbon Kevlar, both in Gel Coat and in laquer would be cool.

Cooling Panels, Engine Covers, Fuse Box Lids, Steering Column Covers, Dash Surround - All the good stuff.

Otherwise, Coupe Boot in Fibrerglass/Kevlar with OE Fitment + Rocket Bunny Spoiler :)

Looks like I have a big list to write up, supply / find and sort out.

All oem items are easy as I can just remove them / find on Yahoo and have it in 5 working days, I am looking to try and sort all exterior items in FRP on a low cost, but once its molded anything can be done.

Mainly looking into some new kits, bolt on arches that fit and somehow making up some mirrors :D

I could do with a FRP sunroof panel.
