Post Starting to dabble in carbon fibre

I've been building a 95 legacy wagon for almost six years now and almost everything on it is hand made custom by me or a shop. But as the bug is, and now there are the 2.5 rs and GT's out there, I have to start getting really technical. Plus I want to stay away from forced induction, So weight reduction is neccasary. Plus the wagons weigh more,(mines at about 2900 lbs), I need to strengthen parts. So I am gonna start messing with carbon fibre. Molds, wraps, and complete new stuff. I know the things I want ,but some or rather most, won't match to fctory parts(dash, rear strut brace,front brace, intake, anything else I can figure out). But to my point, The pieces to the puzzle are outrageously expensive to make one. So What could I make, say 10 of then sell at not a profit but just maybe to come out even? I am going to hold multiple subie BBQ's this summer and that is where Ill show them, so you can see before you buy, But whats in demand or nice to have?

Hmmm, I would love to see a carbon fibre hood scoop for my '92 Turbo Legacy Front and rear 'STi' style strut tower braces would be welcome if it cleared the intercooler. A grill insert perhaps? or maybe a rear spoiler or............
