Default CARBON FIBER Body parts.....

Who makes high quality fiberglass or carbon fiber body parts for the C5? Specifically, wider rear quarter panels, different tail / rear, and clean side skirts similar to the C5-R. Also, does anyone make a C5-R style hood? :D :D

yeah, their link points you to a different company. There was a thread a while ago about BOLT-ON widened rear quarters that were like .75 to 1" wider than stock. Anyone know where these were from?? How bout that C5-R Hood?? Does anyone make one that looks like it? Thanks :)

Thats a cool hood. Who makes that one?? I hope the fit is a little better on the production models :eek: There was a thread a while back that I cannot locate talking about someone that supplies bolt on rear quarters that were .75 or 1" thicker than stock. WHO IS THIS?? There has to be SOMEONE that makes some different body panels for the C5. I have seen the bodies from all the major tuners, just want to know what else there is!!

That hood was at the Michelin (sp?) booth at SEMA -- nice !

I cannot remember at this time whose car that was.

I see you have the Exotic Muscle roll bar. What finish is that? It looks great.

The back of the red vette says "Mecham" (in the picture above)--- I have a picture of the rear if you would like to see it.

The rear wing was a bit much for me, but the strips looked good .
