Carbon Fiber TRD Kit!

Does anyone know of a company that makes a Carbon Fiber version of the TRD (Action Package) kit?

We are in the process of making one in FULL Carbon Fiber, and I wanted to know if anyone knows that anyone else does?

Thanks,
Stephanie

IMO carbon fiber kits are ugly... too much of a change in color from the original paint...

I'd buy it. TRD is one of the only decent looking kits IMO, and oldie but a goodie. lighter.. stronger.. now if you can make a one-piece underbody panel, like the stock plastics too.. then I'd really be all over that.

for the price this will end up costing you could prolly buy a wide body kit. if you want to make something with carbon fiber make some engine covers and such, plus dash kits that are affordable. carbon fiber cost an arm and a leg

do the apr wide body, TRD carbon fiber kit would look stupid
i wouldn't pay such a high price for the carbon fiber and get such a boring kit, no offence to all TRD kit owners it's nice but it's everywhere

if people are gonna spend the money to get a carbon fiber kit it should at least be a more creative peice like a veilside kit in carbon fiber would be nice, kaminari, bomex... and so on.

*Update*

Well the Carbon Fiber TRD kit is still being made. We recieved a doner kit, and it should be for sale within a few months.

We recently have come out with one more great full Carbon Fiber Kit:


CarbonCreations Modena Complete Kit-8 pieces

This kit includes the Side skirts, fenders, front bumper, Rear bumper, and pair of OEM style Carbon Fiber fenders. The Fenders are available seperately as well.

I will keep everyone updated with the progress of the TRD style kit. One of your members donated his kit to us, and I'm sure that when he gets his kit, he will be posting pictures of it.

Thanks,
Stephanie

am I the only one that loathes carbon fiber? The kit looks good though, I think a lot of people would be interested. Personally I just find the whole carbon fiber look repulsive.

I think carbon fiber is excellent as a theme or a minor accent... but not as the whole thing.

i think it looks OK, but instead of a whole carbon fiber fender, i think it would look better with a carbon fiber fender flare. so that it ties in the sides to the front without sticking out so much. and if you did the same to connect the rear it would be much better. IMO
