So no drilled holes in mine please . So excited for this. Thanks so much for putting the time and effort into everything you do!

    Not sure when I would be able to use the hatch, but seems like a great item to add to my parts closet!

    Just paid in full for hatch and seal. This really seems like a one time opportunity so I'm gonna support it and the major effort put forth by George.

    Thanks George!

    It goes with out saying that the disclaimer is required. Thanks for that.

    It sounds like about $1,000 shipped to the States',so far.
    We have how many commited?
    George is the MAN.

    This project has been going on for HOW many years?
    I don't want to miss this ONCE in our lifetime chance at this,but I may let it pass on by.
    I really want to see one,please. Did I miss the early photos? Am I really out of the loop that much?
    Jeez,a little help from the old guy,please.

    We're up to 11 confirmed. I just placed the order!

    Anyone know where I can get a pre-'85 hatch spoiler? I guess I better start the search now!!

    Honestly the sunshades are already fg and fairly light, wouldn't be hard to get a local place to wrap it in cf i imagine. Black on top of the cf wouldn't be too bad looking though i bet...

    Needed some body work done to my car, but since this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, the body work/paint can be on hold.

    It's a DONE deal. Paid in full! Thanks George!

    George--maybe you should send a direct email to all the CF hood buyers? I'm guessing they'd be interested in the hatch too; a matching set.

    Even though I have an '85 spoiler, I actually prefer the pre-'85 style spoiler. This hatch would allow me to source one and install it no? Or does my glass need to be pre-'85 too?

    Great job as usual George putting this buy together. Fingers crossed!

    -Dan
    That's a great idea Dan, I'll dig up those orders and send out an email to the hood group buy participants. I'll wait a week as most of the people on this paid list bought CF Hooods.

    In terms of the glass, someone please correct me if I'm wrong but the glass used on the 82-84 Sunshade is drilled out...the 85+ glass isn't drilled out is it?

As long as you have templates for the older sunshade you should be able to put one on no problem.
    As stated everyone will need a new glass seal, Advan would not even start this project till I proved that seals were available. Those who choose to use a 30 year old seal on their $1000 hatch do so at their own risk.

    I will follow up with everyone when the order goes in. Those who want undrilled holes need to be aware that as i said the hatch used to make the mold has the holes there so there will be an "imperfection" where the hole is in the production CF units..

    All the info on those committed is in the first post and constantly changing so there is no point in me re-posting here. There are no photos of the product, in order to get photo's they need to make a mold...in order make a mold they need 30 units sold. So if we want it we have to get it without seeing it...or wait till someone makes one out of the kindness of their hearts.

    Hahaha...funny!! I did ask Advan that those will actually cost the same or more than the actual hatch, as Gamble said not worth it considering the factory units are light enough and pretty indestructible.

    I have some '84 rear glass in storage - i can confirm that there is a hole drilled into it for the high spoiler centre support.
