Question 40th owners, I need advise.

I am going for Shine Auto Project Spec-S body kit for my 40th. I'm not sure which CF will look better, plain weave or the twill weave?

I don't have any pics, so if anyone has pics of either on a 40th would be appreciated.

Nitrouz has some CF on his 40th...here's his build thread with pictures (fast forward to page 8):

I saw Nitrouz 40th with CF, his kit is Sunline tho, so the Shine Auto version might look different. And when I asked Nitrouz what kind of CF he has, he said plain, but it looked like twill weave to me.

There must be some pics of the Shine Auto kit in both versions somewhere. Honestly I didn't realized there were different weave patterns in CF.

I just googled their website and found some pics of their products on a 370z and other cars. There are some descriptions too.

Looks like the red Venaci 370z has their kit. Look up VIP Status on this forum and Youtube. They have tons of pics and video of their car for you to compare.

Twill will give it more dept and is usually considered more aesthetically pleasing...
So I would go for twill

The kit he posted was ordered from Rick at VIP, which is the aerojacket kit. I think it's actually coming from shine but who knows. I've had the kit on order from him since Nov and haven't gotten it yet. After seeing Nitrous post that his was plain I'm trying to get Rick to make sure it's twill. I have other twill CF on my car, including the wheels so I want it to match.

I like plain CF on the big parts like bodykits. I like twill on the small interior accents. Twill gives it more accent. But plain is more JDM. Most of the JDM companies real cf (Top Secret, sunline, etc) uses plain 1x1 weave. Most of the fake cf uses twill.

Yes sir. 2 kinds of weave for CF. And as per Nitrouz post, the plain weave does look sick on his 40th.

Thanks Xan! I'm actually going to put to consideration how many like plain vs twill.

Hmm... The thing is, I'm afraid that if I order Twill, it might look ricey bcoz Nitrouz' setup already looks sick. I have no plans of painting the kit that's why I want CF that will perfectly blend with the 40th color code.

You're setup is sick man. So its plain huh? I may have to go to that route then... Unless someone has a twill weave on their 40th, that would be interesting how the outcome will be / is.

Sir, big favor from a stranger!
Can you get a snap shot of that rear add-on both on close, mid-close and far? I would greatly appreciate it sir!

twill won't really look too ricey...as many people have it. C-West Japan for example, uses twill in their CF. I had that on my black 350z before, and looked great. Twill looks more pronounced as CF. I like both, just for different applications on the car...

Thanks for the compliments man!

Well, I really like the look on yours if that's how plain CF will look like. With that said, I wish someone would post a photo of twill CF on a 40th. Hey Nitrouz, you have a twill diffuser right? Mind if you take a few shots on day time, both close, and mid-close???

they're actually not that much different side by side. I actually love the fact that my diffuser is twill and rest of the bodykit is plain. It "darkens" the diffuser section yet still remain CF. Gives it the true diffuser look.
