    What do you think of Paddles Carbon Fiber in 355F1? Would install the 430 in 355?

    Or do you have any coutre tip? Because the Paddles of 355 peel over time.

    The 360 paddles will work with a little filing but the bolt spacing on the 430 paddles is different and won't fit the 355 or 360.

    The other option to get around the chipping is to polish them to a brushed or mirror aluminum finish. Looks MUCH better!!!

    Maybe a question for Paul (Hill Engineering)

    I have carbon paddles on my 355 they were sourced through Paul Hill look great sorry I cannot post a pic as in the middle east at the moment, I also have the carbon sills (also from PH) which are so much better than the original.

    I have then on my 355 F1 and I love them. Be aware that the 355 paddles are slightly different from the 360 or 430 paddles.
