Beautiful. Very good quality of Eltech products (I have seen their wing).

How much less visibility does this have over something like the Sport 350 bonnet? The middle part of the Eltech looks like it will cover a big chunk of what's left of the rear view.

I hope you don’t mind but I’m going to edit the thread title - from bonnet (found at the front of a car) to bootlid.

Where did you buy the camera from? Was it easy to install?

The camera is from Valeo Park Vision , install is not so difficult but you have to route the cables at the underside of the engine into the cabin were the handbrake cables come inside,but next time I would buy a camera with a bigger screen,the Valeo is a little bit small but it works....

@dixie v6 how strong do you reckon the cover is? For example do you think it’s as strong and stiff as OEM or got more flex?

Reason I ask is because I’d be curious if the single carbon hatch has the strength for a ‘big wing’ and the downforce it creates...

I do hope so as I think it’s a great part!

Well it has got more flex as the oem one but I can't believe a bigger wing could cause any problems...Its a very well made hatch and were the wing is bolt on it's reinforced.....

Thanks for the quick response! Do you mean more flex than OEM or the same flex as OEM.

More flex than oem...But no problem at all for a monster wing :-)

Hi Dixie 

Can you tell me about the weight saving between the carbon part and the original glass ?

regards

Chris

The weight of the carbon part is 2.9 kg but I don't know the weight of the oem part but it's much heavier....

The OEM weighs much more than 20 KG ...

Has anyone ever seen (or thought of) such a bootlid in clear plastics?

The design of the eltech reminds me of the F40. Since I really like the glasscover of our V6 CR but also would like to lose some weight there, it seems to be the ideal compromise!?
