------------------------------------

6/5/2018 @6:20 PM PST: There is an option to have the panels done in aluminum the weight will be a third of what the steel version is which is 30lbs. so do the math... The price will be APPROXIMATELY $140 more for the 3 piece panel option.

------------------------------------

6/5/2018: R&D car brought back in for V2 Panel (no side bolster option) we also asked about doing the panels in aluminum. They WILL cost more then current price obviously but will be a third of the weight of the steel version (15-20 lb. maybe). Whoever pre-ordered please lmk what you prefer we are trying to get the approximate cost difference.

------------------------------------

5/16/2018: V1 Back Panel Will Work With Side Bolsters V2 Back Panel Will Be Without Side Bolsters. V2 Won't Be Out First They Need To Bring The R&D Car Back To Do That I Said I Was Willing To Wait.

5/14/2018 @8:31 PM PST: 3D Scanning Started

------------------------------------

5/14/18: R&D Car will be dropped off today at Street Faction.

------------------------------------

5/4/2018: R&D Car Owner will be contacted next week and hopefully be able to be there to get 3D scanned soon after! I will continue to update everyone here with as much information as I get. Feel free to PM for questions.

------------------------------------

5/1/2018: GOAL MET! 5/5 Pre-Orders and R&D Car lined up! Thank you everyone for committing to making this happen for us and future buyers.

------------------------------------

This is what I have been looking for to run in my car!

Price point is awesome and this company makes great products for other chassis.

Street Faction Engineering Full Rear Panel Kit (3 Panels) is only $360.

Comparable the Hard Motorsport Rear Seat Bulkhead Panel is $210 for only the back panel.

I will be switching to the Street Faction setup not because I don't like HM but because SF offers the FULL Kit.

Pre-Orders will be completed through their website just let me know via PM if you pre-ordered and your Order # so I can follow up with them with how many more sets are needed to start the process. I will keep a list of interested people on here and a list of people who ordered.

Thank you in advance.


------------------------------------

Price Range For Steel Panels (Aluminum Pricing Coming Soon):
-$210 (Back Panel Only)
-$300 (Lower/Back Panel Only)
-$360 (3pc. Panel Kit)

------------------------------------

Features:
-OEM fit
-CNC cut
-Includes hardware
-Powder coated textured black
-Sheet Steel and Aluminum
-Designed and made in Santa Fe Springs, California

Purposes:
-Firewall for track vehicles running a rear fuel cell
-Clean up gutted interior while retaining the OEM feel

Note:
-Designed to delete seats, not to be used as seats

------------------------------------

Street Faction Website (E46 Panel Kit Link)


Street Faction Instagram

------------------------------------

"Pre-Orders: Once we get at least 5 pre-orders made for each chassis, we will bring in a local car for R&D. This process can take anywhere between 4-8 weeks depending on our workload. Please stay patient with us, as there are several steps to be completed (locating a car, 3D scanning, designing, prototyping, testing, and powder coating) to make this product for you." -Street Faction Engineering

------------------------------------

Left Column Is Folding Back Right Column Is Fixed Back. Also Will Still Be Parcel Panels Without Speaker Cut-Outs.

Questions

Q: Odd question, but any idea if the back panel would still allow for the back seat corner pieces to remain in place?

A: They won’t know until they have an R&D car there and the engineer decides what to do.

Q: Interested, would like to know the weight if possible?

A: Based off of shipping weight (box/materials/etc) for a 3pc kit she said it’s usually 30-40 lbs.

Q: What material will it be made out of?

A: We have now talked to SF and are working with them to offer Aluminum instead or in addition to steel which will shed about a third of the weight.

Q: What finished will they use for the panels?

A: By default SF powdercoats their stuff in textured black.

I actually emailed them a while ago about it, but only one person was on it. Possibly interested, but I have to figure out how I'm going to carry wheels to track. Unless a double duty track tire that's not terrible comes out.

If its similar to the Hard Motorsport Panel you should be able to may need slight modification. I know once they get to the point to get a car in house for R&D I can make sure they check this for people who want to run that option.
