Processing of a payment and an automatic acknowledgement of an order does not constitute a legally binding contract.
Carbon Fibre Materials
Some of our carbon fibre products are 100% genuine carbon fibre, and unless mentioned otherwise, they are made using high quality reinforced fibre plastic resin laminated with real carbon fibre with clearing UV protective gelcoat (lacquering). Sometimes carbon fibre products can have small blemishes in the resin/gelcoat or small unever weave around awkward areas. This does not affect installation and does not represent a faulty product. We do our best to carry out checks before sending out orders to the customer to make sure they meet our quality level.
Aftermarket Parts: Many of the products we offer come from the aftermarket sector, and with all aftermarket products (non original manufacturer's parts) there needs to be a tolerance level in terms of quality and fitment. Although we inspect and make sure all products pass our own quality check, however, due to the nature of the manufacuring process (e.g. hand made) and materials used, blemishes and small imperfections cannot be counted towards as defective item. Items that do not pass our quality check we will list and sell them in the Specially Discounted section at reduced prices. These items are sold as seen and are non refundable.
It is advisable to find an experienced bodyshop/garage who have good experiences in installing and fitting aftermarket products. If special fitting instructions are needed on certain parts we will always try to explain it to you before you buy, or include a special sheet when dispatching the product together.
Fitting and Usage
Any product advice and instructions supplied (if applicable) are purely for references only. We always recommend professional fitting for our product. We do not cover for any damage caused to the vehicle due to incorrect usage and incomplete/incorrect installation. We cannot be held liable if products are fitted incorrectly and/or not by a qualified professional person. Products are sold on the suitability for non public road use only unless otherwise stated.
The majority of aftermarket products are made from either: FRP, CFRP, carbon fibre, and ABS plastic materials. Each material has their own strength and flexibility to withstand pressure and impact. But as is with most aftermarket items, there is a possibility of breakage if the product impacts with an object and/or with excessive force and air pressure. By purchasing our products, you accept the responsibility to install and use the product(s) at your own risk. You should also consider the implications if your car is lowered.

READ ME BEFORE USING THIS PRODUCT
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING CARBON FIBRE PRODUCTS
Thank you for choosing SSDD MotorSport, a family-run business you can trust since 2003.
SSDD MotorSport specialises in supplying genuine and high quality aftermarket styling and performance products. Our products are developed to a high standard using the most modern technologies available such as wet laying, vacuum infusion, vacuum transfusion, and pre-preg with autoclave. Method of manufacturing selected for each product depending on the performance and market requirements of each product. All products are hand-made to the highest quality however minor flaws might still be present and we would like to take this opportunity to address these in detail.
Carbon fibre is produced by thousands of threads sewed together in various patterns and directions. The patterns can be diagonal (2x2 3K twill weave), or straight (1x1 3K plain weave) for different visual and strength performances. Raw carbon fibre materials are supplied in huge rolls and often there are minor pattern imperfections. By imperfections we mean the threads are not aligned during the weaving process.
PRODUCT WITH MINIMAL FLAW
Whenever possible our manufacturing partners will try to avoid using these flawed sections of clothes however sometimes it is not possible to avoid them all together.
In most cases we lay the carbon fabric according to the best performance direction, and the reason for doing this is to provide the focus on overall rigidity rather than visual needs alone. However various shapes and edges on some products mean that the clothes need to be stretched to follow the curve resulting in a change in patterns. This visual imperfection is not considered a manufacturing defect but natural characteristics of hand-made products.
In some cases you might also notice some black glue or a black line in between edges of a product (e.g. spoiler). It is usually a result of the bonding of two combined products used to form the skeleton, as well as to reinforce the strength of a product. The black line is a joint line of a product made from two pieces combined together and an overlapped method is used to avoid wind trap.
INSTALLATION AND HANDLING
It is advisable that all composite products should be handled and installed by qualified technicians. Always wear protective clothes and use suitable tools. If in doubt please consult a qualified person or contact us for help.
Please be aware that aftermarket products requires experienced persons to fit, and in some cases modifications or removal of certain car body parts are required. The way some carbon fibre products are made means that the aftermarket product could become thicker or more ‘curved’ than the original part. These products will require trimming and removal of bumper or bonding agents for installation to achieve a better result. We try to supply fitting instruction whenever possible.
Carbon fibre by nature is a very strong product, however the resin and gelcoating and other chemicals used in the manufacturing process could react with heat and rays. We do not recommend using chemical based washing detergents to clean these products to avoid unwanted reactions.
After installation, check all fitment, bolts and screws and any bonding agents to be fully secure and set before set off in your vehicle. We advise checking the fixings on a regular basis as they could become loose.
MINOR DAMAGE AND IMPERFECTION REPAIR – Wet Sanding and Polishing
Although carbon fibre is very strong, however the surface gelcoat that give the product it’s shininess could be damaged when impacted.
If you happen to damage or scratch the surface of product, sometimes it is possible to carry out some DIY work to correct or improve these damages. Use good quality wet/dry sand paper in the follog order: 1000-1200-1500 Grits to remove minor scratches. We recommend using wet sanding method with soapy water. After sanding you may use cutting compound to remove the sanding marks, followed by quality polish/wax to bring the glossiness back to normal.
The wet sanding method can also be used to correct any minor scratches and swirl marks happened during delivery. Small air bubbles could appear from time to time during temp change, and this method can too be used to flatten small air bubbles or some haziness appearing on top of gelcoat.
CAUTION: Take extra care when sanding, do not over sand as you could go through the surface gelcoat.
