Default New Bonnet - Saturn

Well its finally done, started by Mark (Fabbyglass) and at last its complete.

New Bonnet shape for roadster with the wider and longer scoop to allow for larger engines, also looks a bit meaner on the car to. We've had a good measure and should fit over the Sierra DOHC engine without any mods, Enoch is going to be the first one to try soon so we should know for definite soon.

Bonnet has been put up on the website and can be purchased separate or as part of the full kit.





Andrew
