Carbon Fiber hood group buy!!! i got the hookup!
 
Hey guys... great news. Today i decided to talk to my neighbours here at work. They run a customer shop making all sorts of carbon fiber parts for anything you name it. If your firmilar with hamilton the shops name is CF technolgies.

So i had a chat with the owner and he's willing to do a group buy for 10 guys... This will be for e36's only. Total all in cost is only $500 dollars with tax! I've seen the quality of work they do and can vouche they no what they're doing.

high quality canadian made product, no chinese replica bullshit going on.


pm if interested.

responding to pm's replied.

additional information below.


the hood is exact same build quality as vis, it will be a light weight fiberglass underneith and carbon fiber ontop... will mount up to all stock hinges,(NO hood pins) will still retain the bmw emblem, and is sanded and fully clear coat with uv protection on final process.

each hood will be done on its on individual day... 1 hood per day, absolutely no rush.

turn around time will be 3 weeks once 10 people have committed... 50% deposit due upfront remaining upon pickup.

a photo shoot of all 10 cars after completion will also be done.

sorry its for coupe hoods only... didnt realize i should have clarified that. to answer your question, from past experience my vis hood had a black fiberglass underneith real carbon fiber on top.... a full carbon fiber race style hood is available but at a hefty 2500 dollar price tag.

these hoods will still weigh less than half the weight of original oem hood

Can you find out how much it would be to mimic this vented hood?

mmmmmmmmm carbon fibre hood *mw*

Too bad i'm too far from you guy's :(

thatguy 07-14-2009 07:48 AM

can we see some pics?
I'm also 100% in depending on the quality/texture of the CF.

edp82 07-14-2009 09:37 AM

glad to see there is continued interest...

a few points to clarify.... this group buy is only good for 10 of the same hoods.. hense the reasonable price. if others want different style hoods it will be obviously more expensive due to increased labour. I'll check into the price of the mentioned hood above.

i'll also try to get pictures afterwards...

i've also had interest in other carbon fiber parts....

i can also get a group buy going for m3 carbon fiber front bumper lip, as well as carbon fiber trunk.

ill have more information later today.
