Exclamation Carbon fiber hatch fitment

HEY I GOT REAR-END, NOT TOO LONG AGO. MY CAR IS IN THE SHOP GETTING REPAIRED AND I ASKED FOR A Seibon OEM Style Carbon Fiber Trunk. THEY ARE WILLING TO PAY FOR THE HATCH,ALL I HAVE TO DO IS PAY FOR SHIPPING, WHICH IS 150 BUCKS OR SO. BEACUSE IT WASNT ON THE CAR TO BEGIN WITH.BUT, THE QUERSTION I WANT TO ASK, IS IF ANYONE HAS FITMENT ISSUES WITH THE SEIBON HATCH.

Not 100% true, I know a guy that bought one and had issues with mounting points and Seibon didnt want to replace it. He was stuck with it and trying to repair it somehow. Until then, I was SURE I was going to get a CF Hatch, totally made me re-think getting one

I have a Seibon CF hatch with stock struts. Due to the lightness of the hatch once its unlatched it tends to fly upward so you have to really careful. The fitment is excellent. I am thinking about doing the Mugen hatch latches though just to be on the safe side.

try using just one dampner. or see if you can get the pwjdm hood dampners and see if you can rig those to the trunk. the pwjdm ones have 2 settings...one for a regular hood, one for cf so it doesnt release like a bat out of hell.

i saw one guys seibon hatch and the fitment looked ok but he said it didnt come with any way of mounting the 3rd brakelight so he had to use silicone to keep it in place.

Anyone having trouble with the trunk tray? Mine will not stay in place, it tends to fall out of place when driving over bumpy roads.

Not sure what a 7 year old thread about a carbon fiber hatch has to do with your trunk tray moving around...

If your trunk tray is moving, the problem has to do with gravity and physics. Do you live in an area with less/no gravitational force that is allowing the trunk tray to lift off the floor of the cargo area?
