I have recently had a relatively major track "off" - so looking for many replacement body parts.
- no insurance cover for the damage of course :(
Bumper covers, doors, fenders,bonnet, engine lid, wing etc
Am interested in lightweight fibreglass (FRP) or carbon panels as substitutes for OEM parts
- my car is used on the race-track a lot.
Understand Carbon is more expensive - but lighter.
But FRP easier to do minor repair work on from a small bump?
1 - Thoughts on OEM vs FRP vs Carbon?
OEM parts fit well, are good for re-sale etc - but ARE also expensive!
2 - Recommended non-OEM body parts suppliers?
- MA Shaw in USA
- xtrememotorcars in USA
- Revosport in HK
3 - Fitting "Cup Car" style carbon doors to a car that is still used on the road - seems hard work.
- Issues with locking/security, handles, mirrors, inner parts - is it just too hard/expensive &/or not practical?
