Re: who's interested in a custom hood?

So who would be interested in a real carbon fiber hood? If you guys are interested in body kits and hoods. I am starting to make stuff for small Porsche racing series. Projects like this take some time to make. Carbon fiber is stronger/lighter than fiberglass and can be painted just as easy. As well with actual replacement body pieces rear bumpers/front bumper. I would love to be involved in a project like this. I also was thinking about the idea for awhile. I have been working with carbon fiber for about 8 yrs now.

Here is a one off Porsche Cayman R GTP Wide body (did this in about a month with a business partner) at the INDY Motorsports Show.
The whole body and all of the componets have been hand built and fabricated. Nothing is store bought. So hope this something about my work. I also posted up my Jeep 00 4.0 WJ build nothing to special but there is some carbon fiber radiator/ac air guides that I built.

I would very interested in doing a project like this.

Send me over what you got for designs on the hood. I can tell you guys right off the top of my head to make a mold alone can run anywhere from 1000 and up depending on what it is built from. A hood in real carbon fiber materials alone can range in the upper hunders. But with a group buy material costs go down a bit. An actual part needs to be made. Then bodyworked and painted, a 2 piece mold for the hood,2 primary carbon lay up,honey comb/aeromat/reinforced areas tied in on skeleton side, secondary bonding mating the 2 pieces together with reinforced g10 garolite areas around the hood struts and hood latch areas, finished parts will have an high gloss finish and can be uv clear coat or painted at this time. UV clear coats would be an option or a standard in the group buy. I canT do colors because it would be hard to match everything. Or I can send out primer. I would suggest 3M gold or silver heat shielding if your stock stuff is torn up. It weight is nothing and really does the trick and looks exotic looking. Kind of pricy per linear yard but there wouldn't be too much in yardage under the hood.
