    I would like to have an 85 sun shade option. I'm in. (I have already paid in full for my CF hood which should be on its way now So yes I'm dead serious)

    The best way to do this is probably just a stock hood, no holes, or w/ w/out windshield wiper hole, and leave it up to the customer to apply the holes if they want the spoiler or sunshade. That's gonna be the easiest way for them to produce it. All these different wants/needs and requests will just make it a lot more difficult to get rolling and produced.

    Purchased two hoods.....ready for two hatches!

    Re: Don's carbon fiber hatch.

    To clarify, the option for a sunshade request it's to have the 85 sunshade made in CF to go along with the hatch. It would look silly to mount a 28 year old faded sunshade onto a CF hatch.

    Agree on this. No way I'd mount an 85 spoiler onto a carbon fiber hatch. Better off it being made with the hatch. All carbon fiber is the way to go.

    Eh? I would mount the '85 spoiler to it. I don't care. I don't see what the issue is, lol. It's fiberglass anyway. And if you're worried about it matching, you can get it wrapped. You can also paint it black. Black goes with everything, especially the black moldings and bumper. Well that's my opinion anyway :P

    I'm interested, I say just make them stock. If you want holes for whatever they are easy enough to drill.

    +1. The basic hatch is all I need. I don't even really need a lexan window, if I'm honest.

    this main appeal for me is no chance of rust. considering you're going to pay 200-$500 for a perfect hatch anyways once you ship it, it makes this a viable option.

    I agree with Tanya an zelephant. paying hundreds to make a light part weigh almost the same is an option only few would take. I think black or even a wrap would look good!

    Unless you race competitivley the weight of the glass is a minor issue and I think anybody that has a street car you are going to be very disappointed with the vibration and wind noise you will hear through lexan. very few have a dedicated track car and of those few I don't think very many would be winning championships if they lost 30 more lbs off the car. For the group that drives street cars on the track a handful of times in a year I think you'll regret it... but that's my opinon.

    an included paper template to drill either 84 or 85 sunshade holes into the hatch would be a very nice touch!
