    i currently make custom pieces for cars with fiberglass and carbon fiber. mostly for BMW's. i havent messed around with my 88 stang because it is awaiting a tranny swap. what would you guys like to see made for our style stangs. maybe i can make something you guys are interested in and sell at wholesale cost to fellow members of the board. it would have to be the same body style as mine for the simple reasons i have a test car in my garage. (87-93) also the person with a decent suggestion will get the part at material cost.

    that is awesome...there was a thread about a full carbon 95, but it was expensive as hell...

    not sure what a bunch of us would really want tho

    TTT

    EDIT: Actually...while we are on the subject, and this has nothing to do with carbon or fiberglass, but i was trying to make brushed aluminum "5.0" badges, and i have looked at the eMachine Shop site, but to make these little things they want like $130 a set and i am wondering if anyone has any metal fabrication hookups?....

    Here's what i was designing...it has a suttle curve, higher in the middle

    Yeah full carbon fiber would run alot!!! especially with the carbon fiber shortage worldwide. i can make even small parts like the trim around the window switch, gauge clusters, stuff like that. shoot me a idea and i can see what will work.

    the only difficulty would be around the indicator and high beam notification area. i could make something out of the stock bezel though.

    what about a brushed aluminum rear seat delete cover with "5.0 powered" in the middle???:shrug: but that might be a lil big but i think it would sell and look awesome.
