i i was wondering the same thing, but when i checked into it no one really make Carbon Fiber trunks or fenders, just hoods. our cars aren't exactly super cars so no one has really taken intrest to it. but fenders don't really weigh much any way, so if i wre you i would have some Carbon Fiber place custom fabricate you a trunk, then get light weight plexiglass to replace most of your window and strip the interior of you car. that will shave a lot of your weight and 1/4 mile time.

i think there is a place in the City of Industry, CA but i don't know for sure, just do a search on the net, i'm sure you'll find one in NY. don't be suprised if you get a four figure price. eek custom Carbon Fiber fabrication is expensive, plus you have to supply the orginals.

Have you checked out IPT MOTORSPORTS ??

They don't make all of the pieces you mentioned, but they do make some really neat under the Hood and interior pieces.
