Question about yellowing or sunlight. I know someone that purchased a trunk from seibon and it is yellowing. Is there some kind of protection to keep this from happening??? I read somewhere that keeping it out of the sun. Although who doesn't want to drive on sunny days.

This would be my recommendation as-well as these pieces are really nice! We are also offering through Pay Pal "no payment, no interest" if paid in full in 6 months.

The pieces are coated with a single layer of UV protectant clear. There are a few things that can minimize our product from changing appearance overtime. We would recommend extra layers of clear coat be applied for extra protection. Heat is an enemy of our product. The use of heat shield is a must when talking about hoods. The heat shield will also minimize the effects of heat coming from the engine bay.

Weather is another factor that should be considered as well. If you know your car will be exposed to the extreme hot sun for a long period of time then keeping it covered would be ideal. The extreme cold should also be considered as well.

Will extra layers of clear coat be an option we can pay extra for (instead of finding another shop to do it after received)?

x2. I don't want to have to spend more money on a product after purchasing it just because it only has one coat on it..

Guys I could understand not wanting to doing anything extra to the pieces. Unfortunately it really wouldn't be cost effective to get them painted here in Cali as our shop rate are higher than pretty much anywhere else in the country.

BITD we always had carbon fiber bits cleared by a body shop for UV protection/longevity purposes. Addition coats add some weight, but most people buy the parts for looks.

The CF hood is only 3lbs lighter than the stock hood, and the deck lid was about 10lbs lighter.

Hey Matt, we agree.

From a production stand point, we have to weight all the scenarios.

  • A lot of people will end up paint the pieces. Only leaving a portion expose. So putting extra coats clear will just add to the cost and for the folks.
  • There are folks who are interest in keeping the parts a light as possible, so like you said, for those folks it doesn't make sence.
  • Cost, we are trying to keep it as economical as possible so that the pieces don't get price out of reach.

We were able to source the Z/28 rear diffuser and should have it this week. This is going to be a great value as the plastic piece from GM list for $897 and GM Parts Center has it for $766. Here is the link: http://www.gmpartscenter.net/oem-par...ascia/22997443

So if we can replicate it out of carbon for a price somewhat north of the GM plastic piece, it will be a great option!

That's a thought. Might be ease though to modify the 13 fascia to meet the 14 cowl lines. Lots of guys have done this with the ZL1 fascia.

Isn't this the new 2014 GM Ground Effects?
Also, can you find out if the Z28 grill is available?

GM has a part number for what they call "GM ground Effect kit". That includes the Diffuser, rockers, splitter. It list for like $2200 bucks for the whole kit. I had my guy call GM and get the individual part number just for the diffuser. Is still extremely expensive at 700 and something dollars. Which is my price. List is 800 and something dollars We're going to replicated it out of carbon fiber and probably won't be too far off the list price. So you might want to wait before you buy one from GM.

so basically we cant even consider these parts if you live anywhere where it is hot all the time. i.e. texas

The suggestions are more for preventive care so that folks can enjoy their investment and keep them looking new for as long as possible.

Guys will purchase hood and never put some sort of heat sheild. Over time, this can lead to problems. Theres a reason OEM put heat shield.

Weather is another factor that should be considered as well. If you know your car will be exposed to the extreme hot sun for a long period of time then keeping it covered would be ideal. The extreme cold should also be considered as well.

This would apply to any finish. You'll see cars all the time were the paints has faded and deteriorated over time because of lack of care. Same thing applies to carbon.

OEM are now selling several models with exposed carbon in all parts of the country. So as long as your conscientious and take extra care, you should be OK.

im interested in these parts if i dont sell the camaro, but for example at my work, it is a completely uncovered parking lot, and the car sits for 10-11 hours a day in the sun. is that going to be a long term issue

Hey Honor I appreciate your questions as it's prudent on your part.The last thing you want to do is assume anything! So don't hesitate to ask away. As fellow enthusiast first, we are in the same boat your in. Just trying to build a nice car we can be proud off. Originally our primary goal was just to make these pieces for our project. We were asked by several members if we could get some made for them. So we've proceeded to make it happen and help other guys at the same time.

Hood Update: The red circles represent all the holes and spot weld being eliminating from the carbon edition. This will make for a much cleaner look. The squares represent every hole that we not cutting out for our personal dry carbon hood. As we are not using the factory liner or the washer jets. So theres no need to make the cuts.

We will keep everyone posted as the project progresses.

SIIIIICK! Love the CF roof concept.

Now I'm picturing my 1LE with a CF hood, roof, trunk lid. That would really add some distinction, not to mention a fair amount of weight savings, and lowering the center of gravity a little bit. My CFO is going to murder me... Just bought the car and already motivated to modify.
