door panel inserts
I'm working on some new products for the Celica that we'll be putting into production in our overseas factory including the 8 piece blown widebody kit and also a new lip wing that I'm almost done with.

A few days ago I saw a post about Fiberglass door panel inserts to replace the cloth insert. What is the interest to have this part set readily available on a consumer level and available in carbon fiber or Fiberglass? I'd be looking at an initial order of 50 sets that I'd place from the factory which I'd have no issue doing as long as they'd sell.

If there is interest I will do a prototype set next week to send to my factory and have the molds built while they do the mold for the carbon fiber lip wing.

If there is demand for the inserts who would want Fiberglass and who'd want them in carbon?

Thanks

I'll post some pics of the lip soon. We're going to do the door panel inserts in carbon and those that want to paint them to match can paint carbon ones. Our carbon manufacturer does only carbon so I'd be looking at 2 molds to offer them in glass and carbon.

I'll update this post after the weekend. I'll be away at a show in Ocean City MD this weekend
