what kind of parts are you wanting in c/f? Depending on what it is you can have a c/f overlay put on it. I am in the process of trying to make some c/f cai for the 96-04 gt. If you have the cloth and resin you can make a mold and reproduce almost anything on the car.

I am looking to make anything i can out of carbon fiber. Or buy it... How would i get the materials to make my own parts? And how would i go about making a mold of the parts? I was thinking hood, trunk lid, spoiler, front, rear bumpers, prety much anything i can.

you can get a hood and rear deck off ebay. I wouldn't do bumpers if you are going to drive the car on the strteet. c/f is light weitht and strong in some ways its very weak in others. It does not flex very well when made into complex shapes like a bumper. It will crack very easy if you hit a speen bump or something small in the road. The rear bumper will be ok.

The MAIN question is are you wanting c/f for looks or strictly function. what you choose will DIRECTLY effect the cost. if its functional it will cost less as the molds wont have to be as smooth. if you are going for visual appeal only then the molds will have to be super nice. I am going to say a good mold for a bumper will run you about 2k-3k depending on what you make it out of.

With that said c/f is EXPENSIVE as raw material. Its getting harder to find good quality bi-sexy cloth. Bi-sexy is short for bisexual cloth. Meaning it can be formed is any direction. unisexual cloth forms great in one direction and not as good in the other.

If you are SERIOUS about making some parts let me know and I can go into greater detail. The ONLY problem is that its going to be expensive.
