    Ouch... :'(

    EDIT: I also think the CF roof wrap would look excellent with the hood, trunk, and wing. I have always been a fan of CF accents that flow together like that (hood-roof-trunk without any breaks)

    Yeah I think I am going to get the roof done when I get it back. I have even thought about buying a big enough piece and trying to do it myself.

    Nice! How much lighter is that hood than the OEM?

    I don't know yet because the car is still at the body shop so I can't really compare them until I get it back, but the new hood is pretty damn light.

    Well I figured out how to use the stock hood struts with the new carbon fiber hood. I went and bought some square tube aluminum 1"x1/16" and cut it in half. I marked the spots where the hood bracket and the strut bracket bolts would go and drilled the holes in it. It bolted up great and there is no gap.







    I had to notch it out a little bit for the strut bracket








    And I hade to notch the holes in the strut bracket so the holes would line up when it was inside the square tube

    I finally got my Aerocatch latches in and I am so glad that I am finished putting holes in the new carbon fiber stuff. I drilled holes around the inside border of the template then finished the hole up with a air saw. I smoothed it out with a small sander wheel. I put the nuts in the backing plate and slid it in the hole for the latch and held it with my finger through the small hole on the bottom side of the hood while I lined up the latch and put the bolts in it. So it turned out great and I didn't have a big hole in the bottom of the hood.

    Yep I think I am going to order some 3M 1080 carbon fiber wrap and try doing the roof and some interior parts myself.
