This bonet will fit any of the classic minis to replace the heavy (and probably rusty) original bonnet. Both the mk1 and mk3 style will fit any mini, the difference being the grille type used. The mk3 bonnet has a lip allowing the top section of the front grill to be attached to the bonnet, wheras the mk1 bonnet does not hae this (the grille surround is not attaced to the bonnet).
Ultralight or heavy duty?
We have two unique options for our fibreglass panels, ultralight and heavy duty.
The construction is designed around weight saving, which is one of the most cost effective ways of increasing your acceleration and handling of your mini.
These bonnets are suitable for race/fast road use and will require bonnet pins/dzus fasteners to secure them to the car (see shop). These bonnets weigh in the region of 2.5kg.
Heavy Duty Fibreglass:
Unique to Arc Angels are our heavy duty fibreglass panels. These panels have been constrcted with longevity in mind. These are the most robust and long lasting composite panels on the market, designed around strength and practicality over weight saving, yet they still offer an impressive weight saving over the steel part. They will outlast any of our competition due to the heavy duty construction. Suited for every day road use, they are the best choice if you are after a very high quality panel thats going to last. Bonnet weight in the region of 3.25kg
Ready to fit upgrade:
We can also supply 'READY TO FIT' bonnets, which are supplied with pre-bonded brackets which enables you to mount them using your original hinges and spring lock. These are a cost effective way of using the original fittings to attach the bonnet, preenting the requirement of bonnet pins to attach the bonnet to the car. Simply select from the drop down menu.
Elite Bonnets (see seperate listing)
Elite Bonnets have been designed and constructed to give all the features of the original steel bonnet, so maximum rigidity due to the internal x brace, bonnet prop brackets, bonnet lock spring bracket (adjstable also) Hinge plates, and a safety catch are all included in the bonnet price. They are by far the strongest composite bonnet on the market and can be seen as a direct replacement for the steel bonnet. Ideal for show cars, everyday road use, yet with an impressive weight saing over the original steel panel are perfectly suited to track days also. Weight 3.25kg.
