I was talking to some guys who came into my work and they were telling me about their carbon fibre company they started. I'm sure they'll make custom hoods and stuff for cars.

try and source a cf hood for a e30....everyone knows someone who knows someone who knows someone....there was supposed to be a guy in burlington that does them (he did gurl bmw's bf's old car) he's outa buisness... also i dont mind paying for something that carries a good quality name such as bmp..i know you can buy them from bc auto in markham, they import them from asia they take30-40 days to get and are 600.00 canadian wholesale,god knows what the quality is like...if your not a distribuitor for them who knows how much you'll pay..

Hey could i get some pictures of the mounts for the carbon fibre hood for my own personal reasons. I wanna know how to build them if i get a CF kit, Is it O.E. mounts or did you have to make adjustments??

the hood uses the oem mounts from your old hood...you need to make the cf thicker where you are going to put the mounts and use thread inserts so you can bolt the mounts in hope that helps....i dont have that much access to a dc, but i will try to take some pics for you
