carbon fiber body allowed
« on: August 27, 2021, 06:49:15 AM »
 I lloked thru rules and may have very well missed this. Is there any rule against carbon fiber body panels for FED's/ I did see no carbon fiber injector hats under engine or fuel system. Nothing on panels.

Asking because if not I am going to make a full carbon fiber body up for my deal,well short body since I will rarely run full body. Plus I have a guy in waiting on doing wrap for car. SO I need to get as many final body parts made to avoid dbl cost.

Thanks .Yes Parks has nice stuff. Doing it myself or actually helping the guy doing it will cost me less for the whole short body than the cowl they sale. Not doing full body since I will hardly ever run the front section. Just wanting ti get short body done so as not to have to pay for wrap twice.

Better be able to do this. I just bought a butt load of materials. Let me rephrase I am going to do this and just hopenit does not take much learning curve. Starting with to engine bay pieces sine less waste if I screw up.
