Carbon Fiber: Body parts

Well some people consider it rice, I dont. I would love to accent my car with carbon fiber parts.

Some things im looking to get in decent quality carbon fiber are:

Hood
Spoiler (can be part painted/part CF)
CF eyebrows
Rear window spoiler
Front GT-R style lip


For a hood I want a OE style hood. No air vents or anythign fancy like that. I also want soemthign I kow will fit well and somethign that will not fade or discolor.

As far as a spoiler goes, I really love UUC's 3 way adjustable CF spoiler, but I dont want to pay as much as they ask> Anyone know where I can find a replica style CF spoiler for cheaper? What I really liek about it is that it bolts onto the edges and has no drilling.

For a rear window spoiler ive seen some ACS replica CF roof spoilers but they are for a 4 door. Thats no good. Anyone know anythign similar?

Id love to also get a CF add on lip to accent the eyebrows and hood. Something similar to the GT-R style lip would be ideal.

I might, maybe, consider a CF trunk but I doubt it.

Anyone know any great sites for anythign im looking for? Ebay has been failing me and I really need to find some decent sites. I know VIS has failed Mark as far as a trunk so I might want to stay away from them.

Oh yeah I forgot ot mention about the spoiler. I would also consider getting the GT spoiler, but only if I can get CF risers. I know ive seen them somewhere. Maybe it was Dados car or something. its these CF risers u can put for the gt spoiler. Looks sick. Id paint the wing and leave the cf risers unpainted.

It's not rice if it's really carbon fiber! I'm actually looking at carbon fiber parts as well - hood, trunk and spoiler. I'm worried about car balance though...

In my opinion, buying replicas of expensive parts is rice, but still less evil that putting a VTEC badge on. as for the hood, go ViS.
