I was just kinda curious as to where I could find some. I'm not sure if I really wanna go with them (I bet they're expensive, huh), but someone pulled a hit and run on my rear fender in a parking lot while I was in the store. I'm just kinda interested in the prices. Mainly, I'm looking for the big ol' rear fender/roof/rear panel. I probably won't have the money, but I always work better when I'm going for a goal... might as well set one.

no such thing, not for a street car anyways.



I dont think anyone ever made a fiberglass body for a FC, but

maybe one of the guys in Japan can confirm this.



usually the rear quarter panels/roof is the only steel parts left on a

race car and they go with FG fenders, doors, hood, sometimes a one

piece lift off design.

Thier are CF doors, ( int & ext), CF rear hatch, and CF fenders.. no rear 1/4 panels though. You can try the URAS, monkey magic body kit,. it looks like it might have a wide body rear end.. but not too sure. THiers one other kit out there that s a full on, (MkIV build up style), wide body kit for the FC. it's a pure drift kit, but I'm not saying much till I get it into the shop from Japan.

tell tekniks you have CF doors so he stops nagging me



who sells all these CF parts anyhow?



by the way, when I said FG/CF body, I meant the 1/4 panels and roof

the other bolt on stuff I did say someone might make them and

to try the japenese guys.

i've never seen these parts here in northamerica, but if you were looking for someone good to make them fiber images in Ca. would be the place to start.



THe places i've seen them are in the hard core jap tuner shops. if you have a firend who speaks japaneese then I'll see if I can't find the phone number

It just so happens I do have friends who speak Japanese! I'd love to get a hold of that shop. Mainly, I'm looking to lighten the car this summer, which is why I'm going through all this. Thanks again for the info!
