Not everything, posting pictures is difficult. Moulding replaces spoiler too. Also made some carbon pillar supports for the plastic windows. Hovering around 100 mpg (26c ambient). Will crack on with bonnet/wings/bumpers in the autumn when I have more time

Glass/spoiler 8.35kg

Carbon 2.05kg

Quarters and the narrow smoked glass will be done next week. Will make a poly viewing slot

n.b Im getting used to carbon, I made a pillar support for underneath and its more rigid than needed so I recon 300g could have been shaved off with selective reinforce points

More rigid than the glass incidentally!!!

Need a better website with cut paste photo upload

You should be able to attach images directly when posting. Alternatively, I use imgur for hosting and put img brackets around a direct link to the image.

Heres some it's still taking ages as the pictures are on my phone

Theres a pillar underneath I made from casting a hoover pipe on the back of the glass, it strenthens but might have been overkill

Also the bits are where the wind blew while I was indoors and leaves and tree bits landed on it and wont come out

All done, its easier to make carbon fiber than post pictures. The tape it just to hold it down while the panel bond goes off. Ive ordered enough stuff to do the front end. Getting it sprayed will be the most expensive part

The lines are where the sheets are folded in the post, you can get it rolled but more expensive...

Are you replacing the back glass with carbon fiber?

Hi, yes it replaces the rear glass and spoiler and light. The boot only needs one lift strut too now. I really want to replace the smoked glass section too at some point

..I plan to do the quarter lights next week, according to calculations they weigh altogether 1.6kg, the carbon fibre will weigh 210g. I can use quite thinner layers as it's narrower support distances. After the glasses it becomes quite difficult to reduce weight
