Re: body kits

Bump... anyone still interested in making a CF hood for our beloved 92x's a reality? I'd be interested. At this point, my stock hood has been hit (not bad), had a few golf ball sized dents and is fine... but why not go for a CF upgrade?

I'd prob paint it the stock silver and hide the CF, some may want to leave the fiber clear... lets do this!! Thoughts?   driving

Re: body kits

If this idea fell flat on it's face in 2009 - 4 years after the introduction of the car, it's a 110% safe bet that it won't happen 11-12 years after the car first hit the road.

There were just shy of 11,000 of these cars made, with attrition - there cannot be any more than 7-8k left on the road.

You're lucky that you can still get a stock bumper cover for this car - a manufacturer investing money to create a run of 30 carbon fiber hoods is a losing proposition.

Just wrap it in carbon vinyl if that's what you're going for - cheaper, and actually feasible.

Re: body kits

Yea... not gonna happen. Just find a replacement hood from a salvaged one - preferably not one in a front-end accident  biggrin

Re: body kits

Take whatever money you want to spend on a CF hood and spend it on proper wheels/tires.
