    If you could make any part of your truck or any mod or whatever out of fiberglass or carbon fiber, what would it be? (fenders, hood, etc..)

    I just got access to a friends shop, he is making stuff for BMW's (wings, rear seat area covers) for racing. Im going to set up to make eyelids, but im sure someone would like something else...
    so tell me what you would like to have made and maybe it can be done.:D

    C.F. driveshaft , hood , fender flares , tailgate , (hmm a canopy?) , this one is good EMBLEMS! , door handles. could save 15 lbs too :D

    my truck is red so really only anything black now would work and I like it to be a bit practical, tough one.

    oh badges and door handles(solid, not a skin) .... could be sexy :cool:
    maybe the weave of the carbon would get lost in those small items.??

    how about door sill protectors?
    window vent visor thingies....
    lower valance cover, like the x-runner ones
    shorty sporty mudflaps? :eek:

    thanx for the suggestions

    Dash kit. A PERFECT fit dash kit would be nice. I don't mean stick on covers, I mean new dash pieces including a front stock radio face plate and shifter console.

    I also like the satoshi idea. Maybe just the recessed part and leave the stock front color matched.

    X2 on the dash kit!! I would love to have a complete CF dash kit, something like you see in the Audi RS4's. I think the X-runner guys with their bad ass looking rides would probably buy them all up b4 i even had a chance though.

    like what do you mean? the center part or the whole grille? with mesh?
    I was thinkin of maybe some kind of light mount grill insert, so like you cut the center out of the grill and fit this piece in there and it has spots for lights. Might be too much weight for the grill , I dunno..

    2 thoughts,
    one would be a simple stick on,
    but i was thinking a blend of satoshi with a small/mid size "TOYOTA" and (this part I'm not an artist!) carbon fiber sorta curved inward at the edges or punched out holes in a hexagon, i couldn't draw it to save my life and dont really have it visualized. This is the part you get creative lol.

    I have thought of glass fenders that are smooth , no flares. So it would look like a 5 lugger but it would clear the tires.
