Well I looked at FG and CF as options, but as with the air dam group buy, most people wanted something with a little more give.  And the way they make speedbumps these days...ouch!  Anyway, still working on this project, and will dedicate more full-time to it once I get some other group buys closed out.

Cheers and thanks,
Nick
Nick, If you do go forward with this and you get a mold made I'd be interested in paying the extra money to get a set of carbon fiber ones made. I was planning on doing this anyway but if you have a mold this would save me some time.

I'd have to check in on it.  The mold I'm having made may only be suitable for TPO, not be suitable for CF.  I'll have to find out for you.

I would suspect that you'd need a different mold for FG or CF parts. I would also suspect CF to be more expensive than the TPO.

Mark you are correct.  The mold for this project is not suitable for FG or CF...only for the TPO.

I looked into it and this mold is tooled for use with TPO only.  There are places that will do CF.  But having looked into it, CF is most likely going to cost you more than TPO, to say nothing of having to foot the bill for the molding as well.

Gentlemen,

Now that I've pretty much gotten the floor mat and rear hatch spoiler groups wrapped up...I'm ready to seriously start researching what I can do for us on this.  I'll begin putting my feelers out this week and seeing what I can put together.

Cheers,
Nick

No worries sir.  It won't be going anywhere...but it's on hold until the air dam group buy goes through.
