The price quoted, how much extra for delivery ???
dunno as I have to find out how much they weigh. As I said I'll get these first so I can come up with a price w/ shipping and then take it on from there.

For this to work I'll need someone in the UK to help me as I don't want to be sending them off one by one in different boxes to different addresses. It will take way too much time and effort to do that way so if anyone is willng to be the middle man then they can be handed out whn you guys meet at the Grasshopper or something.

Any takers?

Definately interested :D

But I want a CF bonnet later on... Well it'll just open faster I presume :p
probably:D It'll be harder to shut too but the thing is you wont be straining the actual carbon bonnet itself as the dampers are not mounted directly on the bonnet but the metal brakets of the hinges. Unless you have a paper thin, structurless, wet-"carbon" bonnet I can't see it being a problem

Ok people, lets do this.

Ordered mine today and I should get them either tomorrow or the day after. I'll do a nice step by step picture guide for the fitting.

So about the group buy this is what I have for now. People need to specify what car they have, what model they want (gold or carbon) and what type of bonnet they have (Al or CF)

-Tim, BNR34, [Gold or Carbon?] [Al or Carbon bonnet?]

-Perra, BNR34, [Gold or Carbon?] [Al or Carbon bonnet?]

-r33gtsman R33?, [Gold or Carbon?] [Al or Carbon bonnet?]

-Hope4Sun, BNR34, Carbon, Al bonnet

-Bean, BNR34, Carbon, Carbon bonnet

-Dodgy, 33/34?, Gold, [Al or Carbon bonnet?]

-SimonSays, BCNR33, [Gold or Carbon?] [Al or Carbon bonnet?]

Thats 7 so far. Come on people, since we are going to do this lets have a few more interested people!! :)

BCNR33, Gold, Al. bonnet (for now)

Could you ask them:

1. What happens when you replace the Aluminium bonnet with a Carbon one
2. If it's possible to adjust the dampers afterwards
3. If you put dampers for Carbon on an Al. bonnet, if it'll stay open or not...

Dino
BNR34 Carbon/Carbon for me.
Are these all available off the shelf?
My Top Secret car should be ready to ship any time now and it might be a possibility to stick them in the boot.
Either way I don't mind helping distribute them, I could take some to Santa Pod in October.

Ok so this is the updated list:

--------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------
-Tim: BNR34, Carbon, Carbon bonnet

-Perra: BNR34, [Gold or Carbon?] [Al or Carbon bonnet?]

-r33gtsman: BCNR33, Gold, Al bonnet

-Hope4Sun: BNR34, Carbon, Al bonnet

-Bean: BNR34, Carbon, Carbon bonnet

-Dodgy: BNR34, Gold, Al bonnet

-SimonSays: BCNR33, Gold, Al bonnet
--------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------

PMJ, no BNR32 I'm afraid. There is no space to accomodate the dampers when the bonnet is closed.

Simon, I asked those questions, awaiting reply.

Tim, that sounds like a good idea to me. Of course this means that people will have to wait at least 4 weeks for them to get to the UK but its up to you guys, I don't mind bringing them to Top Secret. BTW...another GTR for you?? You really like these cars don't you:D :p ;)

Pricing should be something like:

BCNR33: 31,290 Yen (Al gold) / 36,750 Yen (carbon)
BNR34: 28,350 yen (Al gold) / 31,500 Yen (carbon)
BCNR33 158.04£ (Gold)
BCNR33 185.47£ (Carbon)
BNR34 143.06£ (Gold)
BNR34 158.94£ (Carbon)

Now if we add 3% on top (for transfer costs to Dino and fluctuation of the GBP-JPY), and round those numbers off to the higher pound:

BCNR33 163£ (Gold)
BCNR33 192£ (Carbon)
BNR34 148£ (Gold)
BNR34 164£ (Carbon)

How does that sound? Who can be the gatherer in the UK?

Simon, the "bonnet-damper guy" suggests that since you will be getting a carbon bonnet then you go for the version for carbon bonnets. The bonnet will open, just very slowly. Up to you. :)

What time scale have we got to get the money to you Dino?
