Default GI: Anyone want anything carbon fiber for is-f?

Hi everyone,

I am working with a carbon fiber manufacturer and we can make anything carbon fiber.

Is there anything you guys want in carbon fiber?

E.G. Front lip, Rear lip, Spoiler?? Or other parts?

Any ideas??

Cheaper alternative to the ThinkDesign Silver Carbon rear seat tray.

Armrest handle and the trim ring that is under the armrest.

1) Engine bay covers, especially the cover that allows access to the area containing: horns, behind the grill, same area where some folks installed their ISS wind deflector. This piece is similar to the CF piece you see on the CCS-R.

2) Real carbon fiber engine bay cover to replace the stock one. Or maybe even a thin layer CF cover piece that fits over the current engine bay cover. Probably easier b/c don't have to worry about either designing or retrofitting the current engine bay's attachment points/hold points for the cover.

3) CF trunk with WALD spoiler already on or another way to look at it, seibon trunk with WALD spoiler as one piece. Don't like the CF over OEM paint look a lot have resorted to, b/c molding cost too much.

4) CF visors or a "stick-on piece" similar to the engine cover idea. Need option of silver CF too.

5) CF cover for 3rd brake light.

I use the word "cover" on a lot of these for the idea of reasonable pricing. This is in the best interest of folks who want to buy, and also helps with demand.

There are enough lips and diffusers at $1000+ out there.. make a quality one for $600 with good fitment and you'll make your money off of selling massive quantities!

It's mine. I designed it in conjunction with a guy who turned out to be a liar, a cheat, a flake and a scam artist. He screwed a number of people on a number of forums. But, I like it a lot, if I do say so myself

A carbon fiber trunk wing! Not the whole trunk, starting above the trunk release just like a wald spoiler.

^^^ What incentive would they have to build something that already exist? More worth while to build someting all new, not currently available. That was my idea of a one piece full trunk + wald spoiler. When it comes to CF material and labor to make, it is pretty standard pricing.

By the way, check this thread started by VIP Autop Salon for ideas. They requested the info from the community, got it, and didn't do anything with the info. http://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-f...bon-fiber.html
