Default Carbon Fiber Windshield Cowl

I just installed my CF windshield cowl. I got it from Pat Scorzetti, a forum vendor, FLASUNSHINE1

He makes the Hydrographic Carbon Fiber. I can tell you that I can not tell any difference between the Hydro and the real CF. The other pieces I have under my hood are real CF and this looks exactly the same.

Im very pleased with the way it looks. Pat is a great guy to work with and you will not be disappointed in his products!

Here are a few pics of my hydrographic carbon fiber cowl i got from Pat a couple months back i have been so busy that i just got it installed and a few pics of it.

Over all it looks good mine does not fit the bottom of the windshield on the driver side as good as it need to i think it is due to all the clear coat that was sprayed on the rubber peice at the top of the cowl and that made it very stiff and it doesn't fit as good as it could.

Great pics. Great looking engine bay.

Mine fits tight all the way across. Are you sure you have that end snapped in good?

Yor car look great and the cowl peice turned out very nice.
Yes it is snaped in all the way i installed it and worked on it for almost 2 hours and couldn't get it any better so i took it to my brother-n-law who owens his own glass co. and he worked with it for a hour and it look like this is as good as it is going to get the cowl peice is just warped on that side a little so i hope if the weather get hot it will help some with the way it fits.

I think its a little rude of you to compare my vette to a ricer. You have not been a member of this forum loing enough to voice that type of criticism.

Some like stock, some like chrome, some like painted pieces and yes some like CF.
