Excellent job. Looks amazing!
How do you find the interior noise with the katech hatch and lexan window? How long did that take to get?

Looks awesome. I'm curious about the studs/screws around the back window. How is this done?

Car is just as quiet as stock as long as you have a little bit of rubber in-between the carbon brace and lexan window to prevent the window from flexing at speed. It's a showstopper at car shows. You'll have to ask katech for lead times.

I believe it the lexan is bonded to the carbon hatch and then further secured by the studs

The wheel fitment and the stance are really nice. How did you achieve that? Willing to share wheel specs and ride height modifications?

How much weight did the lexan and carbon hatch save out of curiosity?

Sweet ride. That hatch ditches around 30lbs or so. The OEM hatch is a heavy POS.

Wheels are 19" all around, 10.5" wide front et37, 13" wide rear et56. 295/30/19 front and 345/30/19 rear. Car currently sits on pfadt coilovers and pfadt sway bars (I'm selling the suspension soon).

The katech hatch removes 34lbs off the car

Unique one-of-a-kind color scheme, looks fantastic.
Did a nice job w/ this Z, doesn't surprise me it'd get a lot of attention.

Oem b92 hood with a carbon look wrap on top. Ideally I wanted a carbon weave and clear coat on top but the finish isn't like that.
