That looks pretty nice. I would consider doing both the hood and hatch, but the paint on the roof might break up the effect too much...or it might look odd. Can you apply tint to plexi?

It weighs 11kg (24lbs), it's wet carbon fiber. It says the stock hatch is 33kg (72lbs). You can get the plexiglass in clear, smoke, or dark smoke (i'm guessing clear, tinted, and some darker tint) And it includes everything needed.

1500 is not bad at all for a dry carbon piece..

for reference, the Amuse Dry Carbon Hood is selling for $3,486.60

i know the process is a bit different from dry and wet press carbon. wet is generally cheeper but 1500 for wet, yikes.
i would also assume you loose your rear window defroster. not neccessary for all you warm weather types but i use mine regularly around october on. just a thought.

not only is the process different, but the finished product difference is huge!

Dry CF layup gives you a much stronger/lighter finished product than wet..

It says this hatch is wet carbon fiber. It's probably due to the glass + slightly lighter material of hatch. Also might be the reason for the higher price.
