I'm posting this here just in case anyone is interested and missed the thread I started in the group buy section---

OK---small update---it's funny how things work out sometime...I ordered 3 carbon fiber escort hoods from a small company here in the Los Angeles area. I sent a guy out today to pick them up and he called to check in on the way back. He said he had a headache from all the fumes at the place and didn't know how anyone could work there. I asked him if they made the hoods there because everyone else buys from extreme dimensions (I assumed) here locally. He said they were building tons of hoods---lots of work stations. I immediately called and asked if they could do the hatch's and they said yes---it would take about 3 weeks and they were going to be about a $100 cheaper than extreme dimensions!!! I'll end up having to pay for the molds, but in the long run I think it'll be a better deal for everyone...Here's a couple of shots of the hoods---I'm going to sell them for $295 plus shipping with the invader style only about $35 more if anyone is interested...Also they weigh 14lbs!!! Three pounds lighter than any hood I've seen...

i would kill for a carbon fiber rear hatch for my wagon... unfotunately the cash flow is pretty low right now.

also, really, 14lbs? the shipping weight posted on the box of my zxtuner hood was only 6lbs

Sweet hoods. Although I say paint 'em over...I'm not a fan of too much exposed CF on any car.

But oh boy, get me a carbon fiber change/cup holder insert! :p

id like to see how they looked on the car together, i dont think the hatch would look right, maybe if it was only the"trunk piece"the little notch after the window, i dont think it would look right all the way around the rear glass.

but i have been wrong before..........

Hey Jim, any updates on the hatches? I noticed a blemished invader style hood on eBay coming out of CA, and figured it may be this company's first try at an invader hood for the 2nd gens. If so, it looked pretty good, even with the blemish!
