Q's bout Carbon Fiber Hoods

Hey guys, i got a question, I got an '03 Silver Celica Gt with the TRD bodykit, I want to get a Carbon Fiber Hood, which one would look good, Also how are they in weather conditions, b/c i get it all, snow sleet rain you name it, are they good for all weather, or should i stick with what i got...one more thing, where can i get the black gas tank that i see in some of these posts.

Check out the TRD clear fuel filler door here TRD Source as this will likely be the best price you find for this item...it's totally PIMP but on the pricey side. I'm going to pick one up but only once my ride is a little nicer looking. Either VIS or Fiber Images is a good choice for hoods. Both have a good layer of clearcoat over the carbon fiber but how much you luv your new Hood depends on what kind of weather you want to leave it out in. Whatever brand you choose, look for one with rolled edges, and good clearcoat/UV protection. Good luck! thumbsup

Oh my GOD! That fuel door is crazy expensive! I love it though, i'm going to buy one. Darn the Celica and it's aftermarket potential for spending all my money! thumbsupAdditionally, Go with VIS, Carbon Fiber is PHAT!

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

People should stop talking about that fuel door. The less I think about it, the less likely I'll have to buy it. Haha, someday I'm going to buy one.
