    Interest in a dry Carbon Fiber hood?

    I'm gauging interest for a dry carbon fiber hood for our cars. Is there enough of a demand here? I can get specs if people are interested. It would a 20% deposit to get the ball rolling and pricing is unofficially $1400. Would need at least 5 people to get this off the ground

    Just plain OE style or vented styles? Potentially interested in a vented

      Currently just a discussion for OE but if there's interest in vented I can add that as well.

        I've been looking. Pin only or suitable for OEM hinges?

            Interested in losing some weight up front?

              Usually real carbon non CFRP is just as rigid as the steel hoods.

              hows the fit and vent options?

              Where do they ship from?

                How much lighter would it be than my DTM Fiberwerkz CFRP hood? Would be interested in vent options as well.

                  From the work they've done with the FRS/BRZ/WRX CF panels I'd say fitment is spot on. They are based out of Ohio.
                  They haven't officially speced a weight but their dry carbon hood cut the weight of an aluminum FRS hood by half.

                  Not sure how much the DTM CF hood weight so I can't say Digitalwave

                  If the vented hood is the preferred direction I'll pursue that route.

                    I'd be interested in a non vented hood depending on weight savings

                      Having just spent a lot on my DTM hood, and then many hours making it fit halfway decent, I'm probably out on this unless there is a crazy compelling reason

                        I'm interested, But not solid.

                        Guy in Tennessee maybe interested in making the hood as I chat with him about the topic before.

                        Get a list going?

                          Whats the status?

                          My hood is faded, dented, and pre-drilled for shoddy hood pins.

                          Whats is the non GB Price?

                            I've heard very little interest in this so I wont be proceeding. Entry price might be the biggest issue.

                              1400 is cheap for an actual carbon fiber hood. Any pricing for one offs?
