    carbon fiber hoods and body

    im trying to trick out my 06 RXP and I've been seeing a lot of skis with carbon fiber hoods/body. Are they really carbon fiber or no? If so where can I get em? They look dope

    Sorry it took do long, I've been helping a friend move the last 8 hours. Here is what I took today.









    It was yellow of course. We're redoing all the colors going to this

    It looks really good in person but still ok in pictures.

    The side pods were hard to do. A hair dryer and a second pair of hands helps. Buy more carbon role that you need, you will not be happy with the first run on the side pods! All the other bits were fairly easy to do. I used the 3M carbon fiber sheeting you can get on ebay cheap.

    Well I mean it is thin plastic. I don't know how much more carbon fiber would save in weight but I know it would cost from the pocket. I'd say wrap it. If you need the type and part # for the material let me know.
