Produced in conjunction with Spage Sport we have available a factory replacement full infused carbon fibre e30 kick panel. This carbon panel is produced in a form taken from a factory unit. This panel is built to fit with a factory e30 dashboard and steering column cover. These panels come pre-trimmed for a close fit. Panels are offered in either raw carbon or with a clear coat finish. The weight of each panel is approximately 8 ounces. Cars which had a factory air-bag steering wheel may require slight trimming of the panel or removal of the air-bag module bracket.
Construction: Many composite or “carbon” parts available on the market today are simply wet-laid fiberglass which have been “carbon fibre reinforced”. This is a sub-standard process which we believe does not belong in motorsport. Our kick panels are built from 4 layers of 3K 2X2 Carbon Twill. The dry lay-up is vacuum infused and cured under full vacuum to ensure minimal weight and maximum strength, then undergoes a specific post-cure cycle to maximize the TG (glass transition temperature) and improve the cross-linking of the resin matrix.
Notes: This panel ships with fasteners for dashboard and steering column attachment. This panel is not trimmed for the factory door chime box. This hole must be cut by customer if desired. This part is a made to order. Parts ship 2 to 4 weeks from order date.
