Just throwing this out there. Can anyone else think of what they'd want to be done in carbon fiber? I was thinking of the JDM Fuel Door without the keyhole in it. What else?

We would need 15 people to leave non-refundable deposits on each item.

how about CF hood, oh wait...

how about JDM front and rear bumper, AMG smooth sides, fenders, doors, center console, dash, steering wheel, shift knob, seats, drive shaft, wheel, that's about right...



huh?

i bet the dashboard in our cars weigh a damn ton. but it would have to be really nice for me to switch it out, since the galant dash is actually really nice to begin with.
it's probably a whore to make too.
i doubt fenders are worth it, doors would be too expensive. bumpers wouldn't last

make me a luggage suitcase that is exactly 26x26x10 with a handle and i'll pay $200 for it

Plug wire cover. I'd pay under $100 for one. Leaves the sleeper look, as it makes no external changes. Still allows for a little dress up under the hood. Simple design and wouldn't be terribly hard to manufacturer.

I told him once if he made CF doglegs/sideskirts, I'd buy a set. I bet a lot of people would.

I imagine that alot of people would like a refund done in carbon fiber. You could get one person to send you an itemization of how much they've lost on CF deposits, then make a refund template, and then just make one for everyone. I'm sure that'd please the whole community!

Sorry, that was unfair and I apologize. If you've actually got plans to get stuff going don't let my skepticism hold you back.

How about a CF center dash pod?

doesn't have to be cf but a decent lip kit and side skirt for the JDM bumper
Eyelids

There used to be a company making CF intakes for 2gs...those looked nice.

Center arm rest?

I don't think some of these items will be a problem to make. I'll update the For Sale thread shortly.

+1!! Here's a list of 13 people already, rain guard group buy

I would also like to see a keyless fuel door (CF or fiberglass), COP plate's would be a big hit, wiper cowl that retains wipers, Eterna grille, fuse box cover, upper timing belt cover, headlight eyebrows to compliment the new cf hoods coming out.

I actually have a carbon plug wire cover on 503. I don't even remember where I bought it.

if properly produced, (structurely sound, bolts up perfectly) I would honestly get every body piece done.
I vote for wiper cowl
how bout a gauge pod for the steering column?
rear spoilers? stock, amg, evo?

i would go for a spoiler, as well as bumpers possibly, with the center already hacked out. a few people mentioned full side cladding in CF...i would go for that. im guessing the AMG style is the completely smooth one? no ripples in it? im thinking of just filling in the ripples on mine with bondo or something cuz i dont like them...
