carbon fiber trunk pics

Gents,

Here are a few picks of Erickson style lid. I like the naked look with the jet black.. Fitment looks good, Motorwerks in Houston as always does a great job! They said it was a bitch to fit internally. Splitters next week.

I hope you guys like it!

BTW, the weight savings shaves AT LEAST 2 seconds off 0-60.. :_)

Thank you gents.

Mods so far:
intake
exhaust/xpipes
pulleys
ECU tune
CH-R's
trunk
hoodvents(carbon)
carbon mirror caps
Splitters(this week)

All thats left will be:
Dinan rear end
4-piston brake kit.
Carbon fiber interior trim kit(tasteful one)

Overall I think the carbon bits blend well with the black without hopefully turning my car into a "ricer"

I know you were joking on the 0-60 thing, but wouldn't removing weight from the rear technically hurt 0-60 times if anything? Always figured more weight in the rear provides more straight line traction. Trunk looks good though.

I would think so, but for the guys who are really into tracking their cars and getting every ounce of performance out of it use carbon fiber bits with a beevy of other weight saving measures to reduce weight as much as 200 pounds I think.

Me, I just like the way it looks.
