Took the dive and bought this and the part is already at my body shop awaiting install.

For those of you who also have this piece, did you expose any carbon on the top? or just the bottom? Do you have any pictures of the exposed carbon?

I hope you purchased w/ aerocatches, as you will get hood lift without them. (I found out the hard way)

I decided against getting the aerocatches due to the aesthetics of it.. but how bad was the lift for you? at what speeds?

I decided against the latches for the same reason. Unfortunately, my hood lift starts at 40mph. It gets severe at 80mph. My hood is full FRP, and I'm told the carbon is stiffer, so you may not have the same issue as me. Is yours double carbon ?

What's "full FRP"? Yep I selected the double carbon option.

Did you just paint the hood's top fully to match your body color? Any exposed carbon?

I have this fitted, and I chose to expose the carbon lines where the centre raises higher and just near the vents.. all else is painted space grey.

Sick, sick rides dude!

On this angle of your car https://instagram.com/p/7onKMNEDYG/?taken-by=msethi88, are those stripe vinyl that are running up the center of the hood from the left/right of the roundel?

hey guys,

sorry for the super old thread bump, just got my 1M revozport bonnet installed, and i seem to be having a few issues with its fitment,

1. the windshield washers dont fit
2. for some reason, the aerocatch [pre-cut by rz] doesnt seem to come up on any lock locations when i look from the top of the mount for drilling options
3. for some reason it doesnt close all the way, even when closed [with stock latch only] the front sides seem to be about 1/2" inch above the fender line

did you guys ever encounters these issues?
if so, how did you fix them?

i am driving around with no windshield washers, and it is driving me crazy,
and fitment.. well, seems not 100%

i expected abit more from revozport

Maybe Marco can comment, he knows RZ well. Did you ping him (ilikebmxbikes)? I've not installed any of there products, however, I've read that the rear diffuser was a bia to install over the Akra exhaust. In my experience nothing fits 100% unless it's OEM unfortunately. Hopefully you can get those hood latches figured out, as it's not recommend to rely on the stock one. GL

1. The washer jets should just fit in from the top, they can be disconnected from the hoses below and there is a tab that needs pushing in slightly and pulled from the top.

2. The Aerocatches need holes drilled in just behind the headlights at the top, there is a small plastic area on the front frame. Will try and find a pic to help


3. Try removing the stock latch and checking all the rubber stoppers etc, and seeing if it lines up ok in the flat position, then start adding the latch/hooks etc. The hinges take alittle fiddling to get right.
