We’d like to thank The Young Engineers for their support in the form of grommets! The Young Engineers manufactures grommets, fasteners, and latches for composite materials, specializing in the aerospace industry. We are using their grommets for almost every mounting point and cable pass-through on our car.
These grommets from The Young Engineers are one of the key things that make it possible for us to build a composite-framed car. They line our bolt holes on both ends and throughout the inner, to handle the compressive force that bolts apply to the carbon fiber panel and protect the fibers and Nomex from crushing.
