Shown here is a quick overview of the Finnluxury Tritium's bonnet hinge operation. Along with being a base for the weatherstripping, the inner trunk panel (coloured yellow in this video) also plays a support role for the bonnet, helping the latter to withstand the massive wind forces generated during high speeds. The integrated four mounting points with M6 stainless steel bolts at the inside of the bonnet allow for a precise yet adjustable positioning of the hinges. For extra safety, the bonnet is locked in place with two latches installed next to the headlights.

I decide to write something here, as it's long time when I last time visit here in this forum.

While ago i tested some new composite materials, and made a bonnet from natural fibers (Jute fiber). I were happy for the result, it was stiff enough, and strong. I have been busy with building the kit more, because I wanna take it to national kit car show at UK. So in other words, my kit should be totally finished before 1st of May. It have been really long process to make this kit, but its made to be really a working one. Not just outer skin of the car. A kit what is designed around chassis, to bolt on and have perfect panel gaps.

I am still thinking that will I build the first complete car to be gasoline or electric version. There is really nice electric motor setup for sale, but I am still worried about the battery life. If I go gasoline version I will most likely put LSX376-B15. LSX has power of 473HP @6000rpm and 444ft.-lbs of torque @5000rpm. Best thing in this engine is that it is made to handle 15 lbs. of boost without loosing warranty. With 15 lbs. of boost it will produce bit under 1000HP. Main problem will be to find a good transaxle what can handle that much power. Mendeola got one good transaxle for it, but its a bit expensive.

Like I have said before I will sell the kit without engine and transaxle, to be a rolling chassis with carbon fiber panels, all glasses lights attached etc. But as I will be building a complete demo car, and a car for my own private use, I will be using one of these setup i wrote earlier. I will have mounting points to be designed to these, then its easy for anyone to use the same setup.

Here is few renderings, Inner bonnet panel and front fender. As U can see from front fender it has multiple mounting points total of 16 pcs. Some of the mountings are bolted directly to chassis, and some of them incorporate with other panels nearby.

Engine cover
Very Nice!

Thanks Robert!

It is very light weight. I can lift it with just one hand. There is lantor soric as core material and carbon fiber skins in both side.

Here is photo of the bonnet after it was trimmed. I just washed the dust away before taking few photos, so thats why there is some black spots over it. (water drops) if someone is thinking about what they are.
