so I found a small ma and pa glass and resin shop within 45 minutes of my house. they do one off or short order fiberglass, carbon fiber etc. I'm taking an oem hood, maier hood, side panels and maybe my aluminium rear master cylinder guard down and going to get a quote on carbon fiber. while I'm there I will see example pieces of other things they have made. Apparently they can do lower quality CF all the way up to high gloss automotive quality CF.
that being said I'm not promising anything. but if it's reasonable price I may go ahead. the owner told me that it's alot cheaper if you have a piece that they can make a mold off of versus creating a cad file from scratch. he tells that 5 pieces of any given product general will hide the cost of production.
side panels and rear master guard are straight forward. the hood however presents some options. I don't use a headlight for example because I run pvl. I will never use the oem headlight again as long as I live. BUT most people do use it. personally I like the maier hood the best. I definitely won't be making multiple arrangements. or alternatively we could totally change the look of a hood, for example check out quad tech ot carbon werx. if anyone is interested let me know what you would like to see. would be handy to get lots of feedback this weekend.
let me know what ya want and I will see what the best options are.....
