Carbon hatch

Recommended Posts

The first names that come to mind are Benchmark Composites as linked above,

 

Then retro spec at like $800ish and also Seibon at like $850 if I remember right. I have seen issues with seibon with it not lining up correctly or there being enough flex that it's noticeable. 

 

I've never heard or anything bad about Benchmark.

As far as I know...

 

Benchmark's parts are full carbon, and weigh very little.

 

Seibon's products, based on what little I've found, don't seem to be as light. I don't think they're full carbon.

 

I'm not sure about Retrospec, but I've heard mixed reviews regarding quality. Not sure where they come in as far as weight goes.

 

I've never heard anything bad about Benchmark's products. Not surprising since that was John C's product previously. They would be my choice, and will be when I get to that point in my project.

Seibon products are a fiberglass backed carbon fiber. So the skin of the hood is carbon fiber with a fiberglass structure underneath. They do not make a hatch for the Z, just the hood.
