Looks pretty cool you should make some up and sell them. I like it better than my OEM WRX delete.

That looks great. I really like the color-matched look. Super clean. Other than Daniel, who apparently is a hand job, I think people would scoop these up. PM me a price shipped and I'd buy one off of you.

I guess you can say I have an addiction to carbon fiber just like Jrad.

Someone on my local forum did this to the roof of their 2011 swp hatch and it looks pretty good. He used like a carbon fiber vinyl wrap. Is this what you did?

Its not a vinyl. Its real carbon fiber. It is just an overlay tho. I think there is a vender on here that does sell pure carbon fiber roof replacement But mine is a process of real carbon fiber and resin.

They look great! Did you just put a decal on the license plate delete?

I'd be interested in a blank one or one that had the SPT logo on it. Any plans to make more and sell them?

Did you use an epoxy resin or any clear coat?

I'm curious because a lot of hoods (Seibon, ViS, etc.) use some cheap resin that isn't UV protective, and I believe epoxy is UV protectant.
