    Yeah i thought about that, however the fiberglass one is half the price. it all depends on what Sarah wants. I think i'll talk her into the CF one anyways. lol. they only weigh about 20 something pounds.

    I would too, the carbon just makes for a cooler look. I have often thought of doing my whole car cabon - the doors fenders bumpers hood liftgate roof side skirts everything except the small rear quarter panel lol. That is a lot of carbon fiber and way too much money than I would want to spend.

    Here is a full carbon everything EK

    Carbon looks cool, but too much doesn't look too good in my opinion. I might be going with a CF hatch once i get the widebody installed and get everything the way i want it on the Eclipse. Mostly for weight, but i was thinking about doing the paint in such a way for the CF to show through.

    No. It'll eat your wallet though. lol

    I havent decided if i want a CF hood on my car or not. I might, but with the paint i'm doing, maybe not. Unless i just go with strictly Millennium Jade...

    JAde is a good color I love the way it looks and carbon would look good with it as well.

    My wife suggested it would look good on the car too. remember the debate we had sparked from the ER34 pic i posted of the Millennium Jade Skyline?

    The jade would look very nice. That wing is OK looks more like a R34 GT-R wing. If I had a larger wing on my car other than factory it would be because it was track capable and it would be massive, probably a Voltex wing.

    The Voltex looks good. Kinda like the M3 GTR wing in NFS:MW. I'll need to find a wing to fill the lines of the car once it's done anyhow.

    I've loosely kicked around a roof spoiler, maybe one off of a Subaru or an Evolution. Thoughts?

    I have not seen the back I don't think lol. And the evo or sti spoiler is iffy.

    I like the evo one



    And the STI one is ok too



    But I dont know which one would look good on the eclipse

    Here's a shot of the rear. The wing only comes up to about halfway in the rear view mirror.

    Here's a more accurate pic.



    I think the STI roof wing might work better, if i do one at all.

    I like the wing it looks really nice on the car but it should be a little wider to match the width of the car.

    I wouldn't mind a wider wing, but i want it to look good with the car. I'd have to go with an alluminum or carbon fibre wing to reach out to the wheel wells. but i like the look of the paintable ones. methinks i need to get the measurements from wheel well to wheel well. lol
