And to think it has to look worse before it can look better.

I wouldn't hold my breath...response is very sporadic and getting parts once you've paid can be tedious.

I consider myself to be one of the luckier ones in that I ordered a part from them - took nearly 3 months to receive after numerous emails.

I'm not aware of any other sources for 968/993 headlight fenders.

There are a couple of sources for other lightweight fiberglass fenders/hood/doors for the 968 (http://www.gt-racing.com/968-parts/) and there is at least one source for fiberglass 993 fenders (http://www.gettydesign.com/993_fenders.php) - yet no source that combines the two fenders (that I'm aware of).

I've been talking to Schiemann Composites in Michigan about carbon fiber parts for the 968. I saw his parts on Max Energy's threads and he seems to produce quality parts. Anyone interested in CF fenders, hoods, rear quarters and roof skins?

He has to have commitment in order to produce the molds, which is where the bulk of the costs are.

Thoughts?

Depending on cost I would be interested in some of the potential high quality CF body parts for 968 Turbo RS.

Yes it is!

And to top it off, another business trip commences tomorrow.

Anyway, a couple of pics showing recent progress on interior items.

If sensibly priced, yes.
