real carbon fiber[:D] do you know how much that stuff costs ladyincursion, for a full bonnet you wont get much change from 5k
sounds like you need to find another source,
a hood can be bought for 700-900 us dollars, and the fit is exceptionally good, along with a quality clear coat over the top to protect from UV damage

RE: FAKE CARBON FIBER.....check it out!!

Yeah A Full "REAL" Carbon Fibre Hood Would Cost About The $4500 To $5000 Mark... Heck, Just A Small Front Lip Made From Read CF Is About $1500 The Others May Look Like CF But I Wouldn't Have It On My Car Due To The Safety Factors... Real CF Crumbles Like A Cookie, Fake Ones Don't...

Thou I Have Seen Some Hoods That Are Plastic With A CF Print On Them, After A Week Or So In The Sun Shine You Can Tell Pretty Easily...
