Default Carbon Fiber Windshield Cowl.

Hi all, Does anyone have a source for one of these? There must be a vendor on the board that sells these. I don't have a PP account so need someone that takes a CC.
Thanks for any help!

Both WCC above and FLASUNSHINE sell carbon fiber look pieces. They are not real carbon fiber, just coated to look like carbon. I want to know where I can find a real carbon cowl??

Did you ever find a website that sells a real carbon fiber cowl replacement? I am extremely interested in this product and it's one of the last things I need.

Looks nice. How long has Vette Essentials been in the CF game? I thought they were leather trim components only.

The one from WCC (link above) indicates it's "real" carbon fiber, however then indicates you stick it on over the OEM piece.

Does anyone make a real CF replacement piece?

I have one of Pat's hydro carbon cowls.....looks great and although not real CF, Pat's process is a close match and I like it because it's not just a glue on piece but a complete replacement of the cowl. I'm saving up to get his A-Pillar pieces.

Not to stray you away from the carbon fiber one, but I got mine painted to match my car and I think that looks sharp. Here's a few pictures

Nice. Is this a cover that sticks on the OEM cowl or an actual CF cowl replacement?

It's the carbon lamination. We laminate direct onto the stock part.
