ADR approves bonnet/hood


Recommended Posts

There is no such thing, other than the original bonnet.

If you want a carbon fibre bonnet legal, then you would have to get a consulting automotive engineer to sign off on it. That is a very unlikely thing to happen, as the problem with CF bonnets is their crash behaviour is totally different to the crash behaviour of the original (steel or ally) bonnet, and in fact much much worse in that they are really stiff and also tend to fracture with sharp edges instead of crumple. So, unless you go and do some crash testing I would like to suggest that no engineer is going to put his nuts on the line and approve a CF bonnet.

I appreciate your input GTSboy. But I’m well aware another company (blits body kits) make an ADR approved bonnet. 
 

pretty much looking for someone that’s had one and the paper work to prove it. 
 

 

mlr what did you do and how did you go about certification? Also what paperwork did you get? If there was any paperwork to prove it’s been signed off

There was some docs from Blitz, plus some tag/decal under the bonnet IIRC.

I was sceptical until the engineer and the RTA said they were happy.

This was a few years ago now, I would speak to your engineer first, and see what the RTA says about panel modifications now.

I did have flush bonnet pins installed as well, maybe that had something to do with it, maybe????

Would there be anyway possible to dig up the ADR certificate/email? Or anything ? Haha

The docs went with the car about 10 years ago, it has changed hands several times since I had it.

    • Hi Guys, my car issues seem to be going from bad to worse and I’m hoping someone can offer some advice. I’m a Brit and have asked for help on the Brit forums but they’re not as active as they once were.    To save my thumbs I’m just going to copy and paste my posts from the Brit forum. I hope this isn’t considered lazy or rude:- 1st post…… For a while now my dash warning lights on my R34 GTT have been coming on. All of the them. When it happens the car runs like a bag of s**t. I pull over. Turn the car off and back on and the problem goes away. It doesn’t happen again for ages and then all of a sudden the dash lights up and the car is struggling. This has become more and more frequent and it’s now pretty much undrivable. I need to sort this out but don’t know where to start looking. A quick search around the forums and I’m thinking maybe coil packs but I don’t want to just change parts for the hell of it. 2nd post…… Ok the latest in the saga……. I decided to replace the spark plugs and coil packs to eliminate them as the problem. I figured they were over 20 years old and could do with being replaced anyway. I’ve just been out to have a go at changing them but the car won’t start. It turns over fine but won’t fire. I had a replacement CAS here so have swapped that out but it still won’t fire. Pretty sure I’m getting fuel to the injectors as I can smell it! Any ideas? Should the coil pack harness have a constant 12v feed once the ignition is on? Can I test this just by putting a meter across the + and ground pins? Is there a relay or something that should give the harness power once the ignition is on? Any ideas/advice would be appreciated. I’m at my wits end. Don’t know where to start looking really???
    • Hi guys, im a Brit who’s been using this forum for a while. I’m after some help so thought I’d come on and introduce myself. my name is Paddy and I’m an old man (46)! I own an R34 GTT in cloud white. Had it a good few years and do enjoy driving it! Also enjoy the attention it gets.  for those of you who are interested I’ve posted a couple of pics. Not the best pics in the world and they seem to of come out worse than the originals but you get the picture   Will post my issues in the relevant forum. I hope you guys can offer some advice.    thanks. 
    • Started installing the meth kit last night, managed to get it mounted so I could still access the awd resevior. Battery is located on other side I figured this was a nice spot for it. Cheers mates.
    • I saw the E in the model number and stopped thinking. Might not be correct there.
    • As soon as I come on boost that rear housing area, along with all the stuff connected to it will get pretty toasty and I'm not the type to race for a whole 10s or so 😘
