Don at advan carbon sent me an email in regards to a carbon fiber hatch for the ceica hatchback and the supra. He will be using an 84 hatch for a mold. price will be around 700-850 depending on the amount of people who join.

There should be a lot of interest. Will that include the sunshield?

Don does do payments so you don't need to have all the money at once. No upgrade to lexan unless you do it yourself but he is trying to find new wearther stripping seal for the hatch

Looks interesting. I would prefer to see it produced with no holes, except the one for the glass. No rear wiper, washer fluid squirter or even key hole.

Here in Ontario and maybe in other places it is legal to have no rear window if the vehicle as two side mirrors. Just look at some vans and trucks.

As for the glass, very thin lexan or plexiglass is the way to go for me.

Definitely interested. Is there any chance of molding a duck bill spoiler on the back?


o_O


eww. I hope it's left completely holeless and spoiler-less and left up to the owner to customize it for his/her look or use. I am sure there aren't going to be several hatches made, and I am also sure there are people who AREN'T going to want duckbills or '83/84 window shade types, etc etc. Can't please everyone, so like the hood, best to just leave it "stock", and since this hatch is not just for Supras, but for Celicas too, stock would mean with no holes for spoilers.
