It's Been a While

We've been keeping our heads down lately, steadily working away on Ibex but a lot of people have been asking about the bonnet, what will it actually look like? will it be like the concept?, will it really be like the concept?....
It was an exciting day when the pattern arrived in our workshop. A perfect recreation of the CAD data cut in polyurethane foam using the biggest 5 axis router I have seen. The detail is amazing and makes me feel better about all those hours sat in front of the computer.

The bonnet is essentially the complete front end bodywork, a module consisting removable headlamp pods, grille and mudguards. The whole unit tilts forward to open and can be removed as one piece to provide total engine bay access.

Can't wait to get one bolted to a vehicle.
