    Thread: What Carbon Fiber Pieces Would You Want???

    1. 04-07-2012 03:04 PM #1
      Ok so after a lot of research, phone calls and emails I have found that no one makes a true carbon fiber hood. They are all fiberglass with one layer of carbon fiber over the top. You can even look at VIS and their description on ebay. I find this very shocking since they want $700+ for them.
      That brings me to my next point. what pieces do you to see made in carbon fiber since I have decided to have my shop make true 100% carbon fiber pieces. No fillers or fiberglass.

      So tell me....what do you want in carbon fiber?

      Parts can be expensive, but if there is demand, and one can make a fair number of them, it's worth it...

      I was actually talking to a contact who makes their own CF parts, mostly for Mini's, to see about making my BSH heat shield / seal part out of CF instead of the metal... still need to get that moving at some point, but if this goes well

      A thread on TCL got me thinking... how ridiculous would a hood with any ventilation be on the B6?

      My last car was a 2011 tC and Seibon jumped on that model like a madman, look at the list of CF parts for it:

      http://seiboncarbon.com/products/scion/tc/

      I already think it would be pointless (unless someone can show me otherwise) but would there be any benefit to adding any venting to the hood? I know as you upgrade/chip/K04 you need a bigger intercooler, but would a vent on the passenger side, something like a NACA duct??

      In a food coma and thinking out loud... feel free to ignore.

      Lots of folks just leave them as-is and the material gets aged in the sun... the best ones I've seen are the CF stock looking hoods that folks get sanded/primed/colormatched and they look damn good.

      Someone posted above the lip spoiler, but I'd like a roof spoiler to match. So x2 for the trunk lip spoiler and add the roof spoiler in there too.

      Like this: http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b4...2-16134736.jpg

      I'm in for interior trim too.
