If you hit it on some thing it's going to shatter. ABS plastic is the best choise, it's also going to be light then CF, and oly cost about $60

Well it wasn't hard after I knew where all the hardware went. Drilling the holes was a little scary, but it was all worth it!

it snapped going 80mph on the freeway. looked very cool.

my next try will be the same ABS plastic, but this time put a layer of fiberglass on both the top and the bottom. the one that broke was sticking out over 4 inches. somehow i messed up since i only measured for a 3 inch lip, oh well.

but yes i do want the carbon fiber one. it will go along with my carbon fiber hood, E3 wing, guages and other random carbon fiber stuff. mostly cosmetic but hey I like the stuff.
