Trying to understand what you are wanting to do with the roof... are you going for a real carbon fiber roof with sunroof? It's not clear from your post if you want it with a sunroof or not...
Full carbon roof (with Kevlar reinforcement) with sunroof cutout

Nice, let us know who is doing that for you when you get there. That will be very unique! Maybe a group buy? If I don't get a GT3 first that is...

Car is looking great in your recent pics.
And congrats on the scholarship. That's serious $$$$ you saved.

Next week will be the time to work getting the new body kit fitted to my car. I'm getting really excited
That shows off the RACs really well. This is probably the best shot of them I've seen. I can't wait to see them IRL.


Cheers.

Update:

RDSport body kit is in transit, and the CFK trunk is already in my possession. Plan will be to take the mesh pieces to the local anodize facility to have them anodized black. The kit should be on the car in the next two weeks.

What mesh pieces? The grill in front on the RDSport bumper? So, if you're going to anodize them they must be aluminum. Cool.


Cheers.

These are things that have been planned for months, but I just never had a chance to get to them. That is, until now.

I'm still contemplating whether I like the blower route or not. At this point, I'm content with the NA power on the street.

It's strong as ever.

RDSport body kit delivered today, will drop off trunk tomorrow and take a look at the mesh pieces.

Plenty good in the dry, awesome in the rain (great for the Seattle weather). I don't feel too much road noise or harshness with these. They are pretty comfy.
