From a looks standpoint, it would be difficult to get the material to go over everything without messing up the weave, but doable. I don't think they would weight less than the fiberglass though. It is all pretty light as it is. Are you just asking from an aesthetic view?

Yeah, to match hood, trunk, hardtop, mirrors.

Let me see what I can do. I need to get my fiberglass supplier to send over some carbon to play with and work a couple molds with it. Everything else in this industry has come down in price the last couple months, but carbon is still $40/Yard. Kinda sucks.

PM me for more info or if you have any custom work you want done. These are a built better than the Tuckin flares in my mind. The Tuckin flares are more brittle and less flexible, but weigh the same. There is also not a 6 month wait for these like with theirs.
any pics of these fitted to a car?

I can make it black, but black gel coat would add $25 to it. Black gel coat is much more expensive and I have to use a better brand to get it to come out right. Currently they are grey, which is much more forgiving and will be painted.

I am going to try to make a set of these in carbon fiber over the Christmas/New Years time if anyone besides Bill is interested.

I can snap a couple pictures of mine if you want, but they fit/look exactly the same as the Tuckin' models. Mine are more forgiving to flex than theirs though.

I will have to see how much of a pain it is to make these and what the materials cost will be. Shouldn't be substantially more.
