Thank you

Hood is stock but drilled. Rear deck lid as well:





Tail is homemade out of FG/epoxy, check my thread:

Homemade Whaletail

Carbon itself is about 25%percent lighter than FG. Different specs at all, so not comparable only by weight. Same for aramid, even more like steel, very durable, but not easy to work with, mulish stuff, ask me how I know

I have no idea how much the car will weight in the end and there is no goal. I just can tell that it was at the beginning of this thread about 1040kg and will be maybe under 1000kg at the and, we will see...
