Carbon Galore; Z from Japan

Ran across this Z build that has more carbon than any other so far.. but the nice thing is it's done rather well. It's surprising with the amount of carbon

Default Carbon Galore; Z from Japan

Ran across this Z build that has more carbon than any other so far.. but the nice thing is it's done rather well. It's surprising with the amount of carbon used while remaining clean, but I'll let you guys be the judge.

Teaser first:

Looks like an overlay piece as they probably wanted to keep the fender's structural integrity while only cutting-out a section of the original fender for the vent itself.

Also, this I the Z with the carbon fiber headlight internals that members keep asking me about. I found this Z being built a few months ago while web-surfing the Japanese blogs, and they keep doing more to it over the months.

I wish I could go back in time and burn down every place that has produced scissor door kits for other imports before they even had the chance to sell 1 set just so the 370Z could have them without it being "played out." I think they look proper on this car, to be honest. It must be the swoopy lights or something, but they just "go."
