You'll notice, that I don't wrap hoods and other big exterior parts because those should only be molded pieces, but for the majority of other parts, the gain from going with a pure CF molded part is not worth the cost or fitment issues often associated with such parts..... That's why the wrapping has the same net effect for 99% of CF parts on cars today.....
You are forgiven, since you already have HPF kit to make up for the extra CF weight.

I've made some CF pieces myself and it is not easy to make them as clean as your parts. big kudos, keep up the good work!
