    hows about a hardtop conversion for us spyder guys. you know, just like they have on the miatas, a hardtop for the winter. then in spring you can have it drop top so you can put the canvas top up just in case.

    the removeable hard top would have the same body lines as the regular hard tops, so it doesnt look like a spyder. you would have to find some way of making a window too, and getting the trunk to open with the hard top up. or just make the hard top mimick the soft top, thatd be cool too.

    and a rear passenger seat delete kit for the spyders. who sits back there anyways? you can have them made with 1 or 2 sub cutouts and flat spots to mount the amps. i forget who has this in their spyder, its all black, and its a fiberglass enclosure. its pretty sweet looking. though i dont know if CF would be as good as fiberglass in this application.

    just youre wide assortment of hoods, interior pieces, mirrors, and body kits.

    how about CF wheel wells? lightweight replacements for the plastic crap?
    CF fenders, different designs than Z3 or corvette style.

    You would make such a killing if you did made a good looking front bumper lip for the 95-96 eclipse and talon guys. I see all kinds of people looking for lips for there 95-96's but guess what. there arent any.

    It doesnt fit the 2g turbo ones... if you read carefully its only for the NA cars.

    plus it buldges and doesnt look too good, and they added the two vents on the side which gives it the riceness effect.

    probably will fit on the turbo if you remove the upper cam gear cover and do a little trimming.

    I would mainly focus on parts that actually take off weight. Most dsmers are wanting to get out of stuff the cheap way. I dont think the majority going to want CF emblems and stuff. Maybe like carbon fiber doors that would be cool. CF hatch and a CF hood? not anything thats only going to drop a pound.

    Unless you are focusing on body parts, I would like to see some guage pods for 1gs like the 'frog eye' style for 2gs.

    Or maybe something that allows us to mount our guages on our dash (red area on piss-poor drawing).

    For what it's worth here it is:

    http://www.carbonwerks.com

    but, since we have 1gs, it isn't too appealing so far.:(
