Carbon Fiber Hood Question

Postby YatWah » Wed Jan 11, 2017 9:52 am

Hello, I am looking to buy a carbon fiber hood for my AE86 with a matching headlight cover. It looks like SEIBON Carbon makes a hood for the car but not the head light cover. Another company, C7 Carbon makes the headlight covers. I talked to both manufacturers and they both said that they both use a 2x2 twill weave in there carbon fiber design. Does any one have any experience with any of these two companies or has installed carbon fiber hoods onto their car? I want to make sure that the carbon pattern is the same and looks complete and proper when I install them.

Most carbon fiber is bought from only 1-2 weavers. Mostly the ones with lowest price. Now which direction its laid is a bit different. Most likely both companies buy from BASF.
