If so then thats great and im sure he wont have any problems, but if you want the item already made when you order you may run into a couple issues because that would mean he may have alot of items he dont sell and then would be stuck with.


But thats up to him, he may wanna get back in this thread and ask people if they would pay first and wait a couple days for him to fab the item up then ship it out.

yes people would have to be willing to wait for parts to be constucted, but that may only be temporary as people buy product I may realize that there is a large demand for a certain part and i would keep a stock of that product to lower the wait time which would only be a few weeks anyway. I won't be able to come up with any prices yet as I have yet to make anything but I would expect to see something from me later on this winter.

There was a pretty long-running thread over in the Appearance Mods section about a 2g high-turbo spoiler done in carbon fiber. The cost ended up being prohibitive for many of the people interested (including myself). Done cost-effectively, I'd be very interested in this.

I'm also looking for stock-style 2g mirror housing replacements done in CF. I have yet to see this; most of the replacements I've seen have been tiny/non-powered units (my aerodynamics are fine, thanks), or have lights/turn signals built-in (such as the M3-style mirrors).

Finally, either a stock-style hood, or one with some form of venting (ala EVO, although I have some concerns about water drainage). The market is pretty flooded with products of this type, though.

That's three things that someone is eventually going to get some money from me for. :)

we need fiber so badly for our fatties.

I would love fiber fenders, rear hatch pieces,
cheaper hood, and well anything!

my vr4 needs some diet.

I can't believe this hasn't been mentioned...

CF covers for the 1Ga pop up lights with a small nasca vent molded into the passenger side to run some air to the filter.

And should you make a 1Ga hood?

Damn right, you should. There is hardly anything tasteful out there for the 1Ga. VIS claims they are working on one, but I'll believe it when I see it.

Forget the trunk lid and other useless junk/ auto-cheese fluff like headliners.

I'd say a functional vented hood and vented light popup would be tops. Gauge pods are easy enough for the DIY'er to make... and chances are folks won't be willing to pay the kind of $ custom CF gauge pods would go for.

Hood and light covers, on the other hand, are the kind of things people willingly go into debt for either for the bling bling effect or for performance.

There's your marketing analysis... free of charge. ;)

Let me know how it goes I'll buy the parts if you make them!!!
If you made CF door pannel, and CF doors, you would be the man. I would buy those off of you so quick you wouldn't know what hit you.

CF hatch, seems complicated with the window there but if you can make that too. You will be seeing money commin outta my pocket.

Actually I am still working on things. I stated that I would start doing this in the middle of the winter but I just bought a new house and have changed jobs so it will be a little while until I can make up a few things.

What the hell is this facination with headliners?

On the 1ga hoods, there aren't that many choices out there... just one manufacturer I think and it just looks odd. I think the reason is because the lights don't match. So if you make carbon light covers, it would look great... even better if the passenger cover has a nasca intake scoop.

I'd like a under-tray for the engine/bumper cover. Preferably one with built-in channels for brake-ducting, similar to the EVO7/8.

if no ones said it:
CF door panels, dashboard (the whole thing) and console pieces (not performance related and sounds stupid but thats what ID like).
Trunk and some exterior panels if you want to go hardcore.
Basically Stock Parts done w/ carbon fibre.
A Carbon Fibre rear lip, and front stabilizers for the sides of the bumper.
brakes...
