Quoting thecman02:

The Trim Piece that goes around the Instrument Cluster would be interesting. Center Console would be cool as well as the other things already mentioned.




they have been made the carbon fiber overlays for the gauge cluster before, im not sure if they still do or if u can get them anymore. I have one in my galant, but i havent seen them anywhere else before

What about doing an instrument cluster bezel with the dual 52mm gauge pods in the upper corners?

I would really like one of those as well even though I'd prefer the interior pieces to be made in a color matching material. When I get home tonight I will write these down and have a list of each to see where the most interest is.

the only things that would matter to me are large heavy pieces that can be made into large light pieces.

hood/trunk/fenders/doors are about the limit

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

Can you do a 12K weave? I would entertain front end items more then anything. Fenders would be really cool. Rear housing of the light would be cool. Those are heavy... Roof skin no sunroof would be nice to see.
Cheers

Carbon valve cover would be tits if its possible.Alt heat shield would be cool as well as heat shield for the intake to keep from breathing hot air from under the hood.

This thread was made before the mishap with the JDM hoods. If we get that sorted out then he may make more for us. Same rule applies...$100 non-refundable deposit.

eh. it doesnt really seem like any of the little pieces are worth $100.
maybe just 100 total, but not a bunch on top of the deposit, and Ive never personally had an experience, but im a bit skeptical with the bad rep hes getting. Id be pissed if I put down a 100 for a 1 piece dual pod, then he decides it will be easier to make it in multiple peices.
