CF conversion for your OEM hood

you know, i JUST realized something really neat.

I hope to death that TAP carries carbon fiber large enough to cover our hoods, but for about $100, you can just cover your OEM hood with a layer of fibercarbon. will look even better than aftermarket becasue real fibercarbon is 3D and using surfboard resin you are guaranteed of UV protection.......

if anyone is SERIOUSLY interested pursuing this idea, are are willing to sacrifice your car as a test subject, e-mail me! you provide the test vehicle and pay for teh fiber, I will buy the resin and together we can do try this out!

this is of course fo rthose who want a FC hood PURELY for looks, and have no interest in the "weight saving" properties of fiberglass.

other advantage is its perfection in design. as long as you have a perfect hood, then you have a perfect setup. is your hood messed up so that you dont care anymore? BONDO it, sand it down till its teh EXACT shape you want it, then take a drive over, we can do it over a weekend! sounds like a really cool project to me..............
