      I just thought of this, side skirts, and front fenders and rear quarter panels made wide body style.

      Side skirts and flares for Mk2 chassis might sell, especially the skirts. Wouldn't even need to be cf, as most guys would paint over it anyway.

      quater flairs and thick door mouldings, door handle inserts, a,b,c pillars, rear trunk spoiler, front eyebrow. I'm a huge fan of little CF accents to set the car off, not huge pieces like hoods or dashes. too much CF can ruin the look, IMO

      Fitted CF overflare fender flares for an MKIV app. How about interior blank DIN panels for gauge or switch mounting?

      MK2 hood and fenders.

      I like carbon for its properties, light but stiff. I would have it painted over anyway so money could be saved in the finish (or lack thereof).

      Someone needs to fill the gap Performance Trim left behind

      If I had the cash, I'd be all over wanting a full MkII gli trim set, flares, skirts, front and rear lips, lip spoiler, and a roof spoiler. That would be most excellemt.

      Hood, air dam, wide body fenders side skirts, rear valence

      The point of it is to replace large items to reduce weight I don't put extra interior crap in that adds dead weight chrome and leather looks better anyway

      Yes! Took the words right out of my mouth. I second hood and fenders. If possible, doors, roof panel, hatch with or without a plate tub, and interior door panels would kill. I was so bummed when I had a bunch of extra cash to blow on said items and found out Performance Trim was no more...

      Has anyone ever heard back from OP?

      Well anyway great news someone has picked up all of Performance Trim's old molds and is getting ready to start production on carbon body panels. This means not only VAG parts but the rest of PT's catalogue.

      No website yet but keep an eye out here for more details:
      http://www.clubgti.com/forumdisplay.php?260-LWS-Design

      They are also running an introductory offer on MK2 Golf carbon roof skins. These are great for both removing weight and lowering your COG if you have a cage as you can cut out the entire roof panel including sunroof assembly. Or you can just bond them on and they look awesome.

      Bad news is they are still based in the UK so shipping will be a bit dear, but expect a 20% discount if they take off the VAT.
