hey guys i'm just curious before i make any large orders for carbon fiber parts. If I got a carbon fiber hood and trunk lid would that honestly save me weight. A hood isn't that heavy for a EG and I can't imagine the trunk being all that heavy. Please let me know before i make a buy.

well i've got a black EG coupe... so another question would be, should i leave it carbon fiber or paint it and just use it for the weight saving factor? remember its on a black civic!

I wouldn't paint the carbon either it looks great on a black car but if you want to paint it black buy get a fiberglass hood and trunk and paint it probaly cheaper than carbon but i have an oem vis carbon hood on a 00 hatch and it weighs half the weight of the stock one plus looks really nice.

yes, carbon fiber is definitely more lightweight. think about all of the JGTC cars out there that have huge fenders and sometimes entire bodies made of CF.

i think you'll notice a difference.

Yep I have both too...and compared to stock...they are a lot lighter...very good investment in my opinion! :)
