Carbon Fiber or Fiberglass..What parts do people want?

I've been making prototype parts for fun and I would like to know what kind of parts people want. carbon fiber or fiberglass..hoods of a different style, fenders, doors, decklids, etc. Let me know what demand is out there.

there still isnt a huge supply of fiberglass (and certainly not CF) stock stlye hoods for foxbodys. same applies for fenders....especially quality ones int his category. i'm sure there's more we can think of.

do you have any pics of your work so far? if so, share em

I'd love to have a 2 1/2" cowl hood in FULL carbon fiber for a foxbody, bolt on.

Or even a boss inc. style hood in full carbon fiber.

A ducktail spoiler for a Fox coupe (or vert) would be cool.

Carbon fiber definately..but only if parts can be made at a reasonable price. Foxbody carbon fiber decklid (cpe/conv.) and carbon fiber hood (any one of the popular styles but I would prefer the stormin norman).

Can't wait to see the results. Wanting to redo mine, as the pockets on the bottom are wearing out. Maybe do them with a built in cup holder near the front - just behind the speaker opening????

anything carbon fiber for the front end of the 87-93 cars including a stock style hood. Carbon fiber trunk lid, valve covers, inside door panels, console, ect. There's definetly a market out there for the 87-93 cars and I'm suprised someone hasn't cracked into it yet...

carbon fiber

I am going to be fabbing up some carbon parts to show once I find a warm place to get it all done. Thanks everyone for the great ideas.

I am interested too! Carbon fiber trim, shifter bezel, guage clusters, etc. I have a 90 GT. I need a hood too.
Do you have a website or anything yet?

website

I would like to get a nice website, money is tight though. The only thing stopping me from getting all these parts fabbed up is money. I'm working 60 hours so I can get these things done. Here's a pic of the hood I designed and fabbed but ran out of cash. Its just sitting on the car so it sorta sicks up in the back:

Once you start making then selling the parts in question you're going to have to talk to Chris Ihara (Corral owner) before you start offering stuff here on a business level here. In other words, become an authorized advertiser before you start offering up stuff for sale.

A vote for hoods/fenders - get some weight off the front end.

Fox Doors

Yes those are very doable. I was going to do set of carbon doors for my 95 but haven't been able to afford it. Fiberglass would be afforable though.
