Trying to figure if I like it or not, and I think i do. It looks pretty damn cool for sure, and is different. I would have gone the other way, blue inner and black outer. And this is coming from a person that has a porsche that has all blacked out fuchs wheels. In other words I have been sent to porsche hell for doing that to these original wheels.

It was a company in Sweden called Reptil who made a few of them. Bought mine used off a guy in Sweden.

Since you're in the US, you'll have better luck buying a used one that was made by Kevin Yankton here's a pic of 2 CF hoods he made.

Unfortunately he's out of the business as well :cry:
I think the mold might still be up for sale though. I just saw it.

that sucks. the one person i know who makes carbon parts for saabs has all his molds up for sale. I guess i'm outta luck. unless some up-and-coming carbon fabricator decides to buy up those molds and produces the same quality products. I wish!

They're great cars, just a bit heavy for me. If you can change the hood, fenders, doors, and rear qtr panels to carbon, i bet that's at least 200lbs. that could be shed. then change the front seats to some sparcos or recaros, and there goes another 40-70lbs. ahhhh.....at least i can dream....

I'm guessing you're talking about Kevin Yankton. I think Abott Racing bought some of his molds but I'm not sure which. I saw something recently for sale saying Abbot Racing on it and looked like Kevin's work. I think there was a thread on this forum about it too (within the last month)

for sure i know it was the engine cover. i wonder if anyone is campaigning to perhaps convince the guys at GS to buy them up...? that would be great so the prices wouldn't skyrocket. somehow i think abbott will have a bigger mark up...

I agree with you on that. Kevin's prices were very high as he sold very limited quantities!

By the way Pade. Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice wheels :cheesy:

But that orange in the turn signals kind of sticks out...

Yea that orange reflector has to go. The car looks perfect otherwise :cheesy:

Very nice car, I agree that you must take out the orange reflectors. The first picture is my desktop background until you take better pictures with a good background. ;)

wow , those wheels look great! It would not work with just any car/color combo, though. Yes, need clear corners on that car, but I prefer them on my cars. I wonder how smoked would look?

wow :o that looks great. As everyone else said take out the orange reflectors and I'd also tint the windows.

Turned out nice. Looks VW inspired. Looks like you lost a jack point cover. Those are such a pain. Not to mention $$$$$

Thanks a lot for all the positive feedback.
I thought long and hard how to paint them and I have to say they came out way better than I expected, so needless to say I'm very pleased :)

It's funny with the corners, here in Scandinavia people upgrade to US-spec corners while you guys go for clear corners :D But I think I might have to peel off the orange bit thought. Smoked might also work since I will get a modded carbon grill soon so it would go better with the hood :)

I don't know could almost go eigher way on your car w/ clearing the corners. Some how it works the way it is in a touring car splash of color sort of way... I wouldn't smoke the lights... But a modded carbon grill would look VERY sexy!

Yea the carbon fiber grille would look nice. Kevin Yankton did it although he did it with an NG900 grille. Looks very nice :cheesy:

Hell yeah! Really nice rims!
I think those would look really sweet in gunmetal with a polished lip! I'd say go for it :cool:

Are those 19" by the way?
