C/F trunk lid???

Has anyone ever heard of a carbon fiber trunk lid for a 6th gen coupe ?

If so, who makes it?

Andy,

I was curious too, and searched the crap out of the internet today and found nothing.

VIS, Fiber Images, BKNW, etc. none make this for our car. I'll keep my eye out buddy.

In one of the HCI magazines they showed a company that was making carbon fiber trunk lids. You can try emailing them and see if they are going to make any for the Accord. Or try getting a group buy started if they are.

VIS said that they will make one for the coupe if I can get 50 people to pay $475 each up front and wait two months for delivery.
I laughed and said thanks anyway.
I told them that I would be lucky to get ten peole to commit.
Oh well!

FOUND ONE! just thought id let you know that www.grounddynamics.com can get carbon fiber trunk lids for 6th accord coupes and sedans. it takes 4-6 weeks to make it, and pick-up is possible. The trunks go for $525. There is no info on their site about it, but i saw there ad in a mag, went to the site, called them, and they can get them!

I emailed OETuning about making it awhile back but they never replied so I just forgot about it. But damn...$525 for a trunk lid? That sucks.

ive tried talking to OETunig before also and they didnt seem interested in making one. Another friend of mine called them and was quoted $475, which is the orginal quote i got from girl who told me to call back the next day to talk to someone else about the details of the hood and he quoted me the $525. I dont know, but when i comes time to order it, i better get the $475 price!
