hey guys im in the market for carbon fiber-ware for my car, hood and trunk, maybe other accessories also.

im looking for top notch quality. even weaves, rolled edges, reinforced screw holes. what brands are out there i can get. NO vents.

Seibon isnt good enough.
TRD is obviously too expensive.

what else is out there?

Seibon and ViS are Chinese. Go with JDM Carbon such as TRD and other reputable brands, look to spend 1k+ minimum on good JDM carbon parts hoods are normally 1k-1.2k starting. The question is, why spend so much money on carbon parts, for hood/trunk your looking at least 2k, thats full exhaust/cam gear/intake/safc.....

Those are pretty much your options there isnt a whole big market for us out there, TRD by far is one of the best carbon hoods, i have seen them in person at Team Lexus' old shop in Baltimore, those things are INCREDIBLE!!!! Here is a list of places where you could get a Carbon Hood from, ive seen some Seibon carbon hoods look pretty damn good, as far as weave pattern and gel coats, then again ive seen some VIS hoods look like some 5 year old make it.
Carbon Creations OEM Style Hood
VIS Racing OEM Style Hood
Kinway Motorsports deals directly with TRD for importing parts
Seibon OEM Style Hood
And as much as i hate to post this site
Lextacy has the DG OEM carbon hood aswell

after reparing a so called trd hood last month at the shop, the hood is total crap and not even worth the money. 1 layer of plain weave and the rest is mat glass, worst of all, wet layup.. hmm.. lets just call it a fiberglass hood with cf look..Then again, who knows if its even a real TRD hood.
real TRD hood has the part number stamped underneath. you probably worked on a knock off
