Optically, it's a clean job, but....
The clear varnish is not a 2K varnish, therefore very sensitive.
I had to have all parts reworked at the screw points, because they are all torn out although I tried to find the optimal screw pressure and installed without tension.
If there are alternatives, better try them.

I bought them there. First impression was great, after two weeks of tension-free assembly almost all drillings were torn out. So I had all parts reworked. The clear varnish was very sensitive, you could rub it down with thinner. So I had them repainted with 2k clearcoat. Everything in the everything was not favorable that.

When I bought my DB6 I had a big argument with my dealer, because right after the purchase, Bimota came out with the R.
So I wanted my own R an Carbon SK was willing to give it a try.

The moulds for the parts from SK were cast from my db6. So I have the full set.

I have them for over 10 years now and cannot complain, maybe they chanced the process?!

I've got all the mounting holes torn out.
I have pictures of them, unfortunately I don't know how to upload them.
