Darrenheli, you got to be careful saying things like that, I do believe I'm not alone wanting to buy several parts from you now!  Grin

I think what a lot of people would really want, was for somebody to create some side panels/skirts like the ones on the "S" version. The ones that are available are far to expensive.

@ Njesper:

"SAFETY FIRST
........

This said, you should also think about the same issues with carbon fiber. I don't know if there is a way to actually encase the carbon, so that it cannot splinter when breaking apart. For the same reason, I would think twice about making the bigger outer panels out of carbon, because it could pose a large threat to people around your car (flying carbon pieces), if you crash."

Somebody told me, that if there is a layer of thin fiberglass between the carbon-layer the risk of splinting will be reduced. It should crash than similar to full fiberglass and makes the carbon-part more flexible.

Looks a beauty.
One disadvantage is that there is no defogging in the screen, and I think it is not possible to put on after market because of mis forming.

True about no defogging and definitely not suitable for everyday road cars. When I install it I will fit the louvered side windows that appear earlier in this thread for some ventilation. With my previous flat polycarbonate screen I had to fit a support bracket  in the middle to stop drumming. Fingers crossed now that having the compound curves it may be stiffer and not require this support?

It might have been covered before, but i noticed/wondered how heavy the front bonnet is.



Rear screen made from 6mm bronze tinted Polycarbonate Makrolon Longlife Plus ......

6mm sounds a bit thin and flimsy. Or does the shape makes it more solid? 
At my work there are machines equiped with makrolon lexaan panels. These panels also do crimp/expand quite a lot on temperature changes.  And when there is too much stress concentrated on a point, it crackes. (like  a bolt under stress, or a bolt overtightend)  Also do not use nutlock (loctite) on bolts through lexaan. The nutlock flued gets in the pores and the panel crackes around the hole.

The front bonnet has not been weighed yet. I have a spare one, but as it buried at the back of my shed and it has started snowing I think it can wait for now.
6mm is quite flimsy but the compound curve appeared to stiffen it up. All your comments are very valid and I would now like to add that if you dribble stale concentrated petrol residue out of an old motorcycle carb. on it by mistake the plastic etches badly and also cracks,  as if someone has hit it with a hammer.   Ahhhhhhhhhhhg!  Cry

It definitely does suck. I threw the screen away immediately to get it out of my sight.
The whole project involved 2 x return journeys totaliing 1360kms. The cost of the screen £220 and approximately £150 of fuel.
I will have to start again, but that project has now definitely gone to the back of the wish list.
I will be stronger and MORE CAREFUL from the expereince though!  Grin
