In Reply to: CARBON FIBER BODY PARTS anybody interested???? posted by Huzurdd on May 16, 2001 at 14:32:40:


Hey guys,
I have a line on making carbon fiber body parts. The tooling cost is quite a lot of money. So my question to you guys is who is interested and what parts would you guys want. The evo3 front and rear wings are already in the process. These will be sold by one of the major BMW performance parts guys. I don't want to step on their toes so please don't ask for these pieces. The producer will be the same one however. The producer is heavily involved in racing. Fit, finish, and quality will be as good if not better than the factory standard parts (A+). the cost at worst case scenario would be the same as the factory parts only out of carbon. This is the worst case. Most likely they will be cheaper. The evo3 CF rear wing looks like it will be several hundred less than the cheapest source of the original. Just to give you guys an idea (as mentioned please don't ask for these). What I am asking you guys is no bull, who would want carbon fiber body pieces?? And which pieces??? First run of parts will be evo3 spec. ie; fenders, bumper covers,trunk lid, and brake ducts. Other projects may include hoods, side skirt, GRP-A air box's and anything else people may want. So if you guys would want these things email me with a simple "yes" and what parts of interest. If the demand is there the mold will take about 2-3 weeks to make and production soon there after. All I am doing is trying to stir up interest to hopefully get these parts made. I have no affiliation with the shop what so ever. I am simply getting one of the prototype evo3 wings and have asked for other parts to be made. The shop said "yes, if there is enough interest". Hopefully there is...
Thanks
-George

BTW: I will recieve the CF evo3 wing in about 2weeks I will post pictures of the wing showing detail and quality.
