        Was talking to a dealer who has 50 ordered, he expects cars to be ready to go early January for customer pickup.

              Assuming it is a multi layer panel it can look fine but could be fucked. Really need to go over it with Tap hammer to identify if there any delaminations.

                  Where are the photos? Was it outside at the Head Office?

                      Pretty silly to leave it outside over a weekend! Especially when the whole of Brisbane knew there were storms coming!

                      I got some pics from the training back on the 8th of a Rallye. BAE (victorian) plates?

                          I don't mean multi layer as in carbon on steel. But if you have multiple layers of cloth you can get delam between your layers after impacts that will leave it looking externally perfect.
                          Put it this way if it was my car I would be asking for a composites expert to inspect it, not some dealership person or panel beater giving it a visual thumbs up.

                            it's not a laminated cloth panel, it's "Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic". It's been used on different toyota models for a few years now, an old article talking about it is here: Toyota Discusses the Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic Material Used in Vehicle Lightweighting - The Altair Blog

                            The Australian cars get a PVC wrapped CFRP roof.

                                I was interested as I had a new to me car sat in that big prixcar yard and it copped about 5 dents. Guess I got off lightly and at least it wasn't one of these 🙂
