That hood looks like the scoop on the 90's generation camaros. I don't think it would look right on a 6

We only carry Seibon so if any (or all) of their offerings interests you, let me know who is interested and I will check stock and price everything out.

See, the thing about a group buy is there isn't enough quantity to begin with. The 6 is not a tuner car and as such products are limited in existence and availability. Special Order is out of the question as reliable time frames do not exist in this industry.

I'd defiently be in on this if it happened. As I need to get a new hood anyways since mine is chiped in the front from rocks and i'd rather just get a CF hood then try to fix this.

Unfortunately its not going to happen. First off there isn't enough quantity to warrant a group buy. Second many CF companies are having a hard time because of a surge in raw materials demand/cost.

The price for raw materials has sky rocketted over the past year or so due to increased global demand. Some companies saw it coming and bought stock while it was cheap. However eventually their stock is going to deplete and they will need more. Carbon Fiber is used in many applications, with the biggest spenders being in Aerospace (Boeing, Airbus, NASA, Military Contractors, etc.). Look up the one year stock chart on a Japanese company called Toray Industries Inc (they are a supplier). You should be able to see the spike in demand.

They should make a hood out of synthetic spider webbing....supposed to be the strongest and lightest material...Maybe your company can look in to that one...be the first ones out there with Spider hoods
