Does anyone know where I can find a carbon fiber hood? Im hoping to make my GVR4 sub-3k lb. while keeping the rear seats and interior. I looked all over the internet and can't find one. I've heard other GVR4 owners say they use one on their car.

There are plenty of vendors that manufacture carbon fiber stock hoods for the galant. The catch is the wait time and cost of shipping.
That said, I see you would like your galant to weigh-in at less than 3,000 lbs. -Thats a huge weight drop for this platform and will entail quite a bit beyond obviously the hood and trunk.
If you haven’t already I would encourage you to consider removing/replacing the following:
1) 4WS system 2) Cruise Control 3) Emission System 4) ABS System *Full removal to include associated wiring, Ring Gear, Sensors, etc. 5) Relocate battery and replace with a lightweight unit 6) ACT/Fidanza Light weight Flywheel 7) Driveshaft Shop Aluminum Driveshaft 8) Balance Shaft Delete 9) A/C System *Full removal to include associated wiring behind the dash 10) Manual Seatbelt conversion from LS/GS 89 - 93 galant 11) Replace front seats 12) Replace fuel tank with a Fuel Cell 13) *Hop on the treadmill and shed 10 lbs of driver weight
There are a few posts on this subject and I encourage you to use the forums search function. If you have any specific questions regardless of how minute they may seem please ask. We’re here to help!
