Cool....I understand that but you didn't say that. Read your post.

Great job, I am really particular and would put this on my car in a second.
Thank you very much. Quality is excellent, and the guys at Carbon By Design are great, doing whatever they can to help and get the job done right the first time!

Haha, luckily it's not too much weight

Besides with all the weight I save from my hood and trunk, I think I can spare a few grams

First of all, I am pleasantly surprised and pleased that you gave us this compliment. Eric at MPD is a Quality Competitor of mine for some of the things we have done for the SSR/
Thanks Eric!

Secondly, I must say carbon by Design did a quality job on the Carbon fiber work on that roof.
I do a lot of Carbon fiber and must say it is difficult to get the weave perfectly straight. That said , I give them a compliment even though we are competitors.

Good job Mike!
Looks Good.

Thank you for the compliment. It is always nice to have our work admired but especially when it is someone in the same industry. Your work is flawless as well. Glad we our on opposite coast so we are not to much competition for each other.

I would be very interested in a CF roof but I live in S.C.. Are you going to be producing an overlay that can be shipped out or can this only be done in house?? If only in house, do you know of any place on the east coast that could do this for me near South Carolina.. Thanks

BTW SS Mike car looks great!!!! Have any more pics that you can post??

I never noticed this thread come back up! My bad! Right after SEMA my car went to Vortech, so I haven't been able to attend any meets for a while. But I'll have it back soon in full force so you can check it out then. I'll PM you my number.

Give me a few minutes and I'll post all the pics I have of the roof, plus a couple more that I've taken after. I havent' seen my car much in the last month and a half so i don't have a whole lot of pics, but I'll post what I have!

Thanks for the compliment btw

Thanks Matt! It'll look good on a Bumble Bee as well, especially if you were to get cf roof, hood and trunk, and wing (all from Carbon By Design of course ) and then paint them yellow, but leave the stripes area carbon fiber, now that would be SICK!!!

CGM, same as yours.. I am going to get a CF hood, GFX, trunk, and hopefully roof. I plan on getting them painted but masking off a single rally stripe in carbon fiber.

So this is for cosmetics and not actually saving any weight?

That's not going to sell me on it.

Awesome! Sounds familiar I am still contemplating that idea. I've always wanted to get a cf hood like mine and paint it, and have the paint fade away right where the cowl comes up so the cowl will be unpainted cf. Then follow that idea on the roof and trunk/spoiler.

Good thing I'm not trying to sell you on anything And yes, when you compete around the country in shows, carbon fiber is not just used to save weight, sometimes it is pure cosmetics

Yeah, I think it will look really good.. I probably wont end up getting my roof done unless I can find a high quality shop close by to do it though. So my CF stripe will just be on the hood and trunk most likley. Thanks again for the pics
