Carbon Fiber hood and rear Brembos installed!!

Just got a brand new carbon fiber hood yesterday from Carbon By Design in Oceanside!! Hood looks absolutely beautiful on this car. It has a taller than stock cowl (2 inches taller to be exact) and it is full carbon fiber top and underside! Fitment is great and it looks just bad@$$!! The guys down at Carbon by Design are great to work with, they installed the hood for me so they could get the fitment just right, and I would say they did an excellent job. Thanks again Travis and John!!

Check them out HERE

Call Travis at (760) 295-7618

They've got a bunch of other things for the new Camaro in the works so stay tuned

I also got my rear Brembos (Big Brake Kit) installed yesterday. I know a lot of you were asking me about the rears when I had first got my front ones on, well here they are!







Rear Brembos:

These Brembos are an upgraded GT kit which has 15" two piece drilled rotors and monoblock 4 piston calipers. The price for the rears is $3395. HERE is a link to the thread I started when I got my fronts done, there's info there about the kits.

I didn't get any underside pics today, but I will take a couple tomorrow and upload them here.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

I appreciate everyone's opinions, just curious though what you dont like? Carbon by Design is very interested in customer feedback, maybe they can make something you may like better. Unless you just dont like carbon fiber

This hood is $899 because its cf on top and underneath, if you get the fiberglass gel coat (black) underside its $699. If you want just fiberglass top and underneath to save some weight but you dont want the carbon fiber look it's $599.

Thanks, I think it looks grear on the cyber gray, but it would look even better on a lighter color, like white for sure!

I'd definately be interested once my Summit White was ordered. I'd be my very first CF accessory on a vehicle. What is the best way to was the hood to preserve its life?

Yea not feeling the hood or brakes. Like the size of the brakes but I like function over appearance for the most part, and drilled is for looks.

Different strokes for different folks.

Never really been a fan of carbon fiber but to me the rear of the hood seems a little high and the sides a little to squared off.

The Hood looks great to me and that is a fair price.

Why upgrade the brakes? That is a lot of money to spend on a car that already has Brembos and stops from 60 in 103ft (below average). Are you planning on racing it?

I havent weighed the stock hood yet but i believe its around 40 pounds. This hood weighs in at 15 pounds.

I dont think they make a stock style hood but im sure they easily could. Give them a call (760) 295-7618 ask for Travis. Tell him Mike from Camaro 5 sent you.
