    X-Mas in May...

    Finally scored after about a year of tracking down, making phone calls/emails, and negotiating.

    I came home to a UPS Freight tractor trailer with a forklift offloading...



    (wait for it)



    Long lost Carbon Fiber body panels from the now defunct Spectre Werkes. They still need to be trimmed and cleaned up and they are only skins but nonetheless I've got something to work with.

    2 Fenders, 4 Doors, and Decklid

    The Fenders had some foam and hot glue on them but thanks to a sharp eye they are actually just fine. In fact if the story is correct, these fenders were used to make the flare kit that was sold to a guy in the Middle East who just so happens to be Naf.

    Check it out...

    That's pretty. And functional. Are you going to paint over them or are you going to leave it?

    Talk about stealth mode if you paint them! Must be a huge weight savings with all of those pieces!

    More than likely they will be painted to match. These things are really light. The fenders look the easiest to mount up.

    I think you should trim them, and mount them the way they look right now. Paint just adds weight!

    Can you shoot a few shots from the inside of the pieces. Curious how they molded the inside.

    Very nice. I'd imagine those are probably pretty tough to find. (Nu pun intended)

    Sure raises the cost of trading paint on the track.

    paint match would add 5 lbs a panel but would give you that sleeper look.
