Ladies and Gentelmen,

Okay, now that I have your attention, I can just get to the point of this whole post. :) One of my friends owns a company called StoopidParts (http://www.stoopidparts.com) and is actually interested in gaining a market share in the B14 Sentra community. They already have one original product out for the B15, and its their Velocity Power Carbon Fiber Hood. I've seen the pictures, and they look, in a word DOPE! I'll post some pictures of them as soon as I can find them.

They are looking to make CF hoods for our Sentra/200SX. They have asked if I would be willing to use my car as their prototype. They are looking for about 10-15 solid buyers. As soon as we have the confirmed buyers, work will start on the hood!

Please use the Poll above, as well as this thread to express your interest!

Thanks!

-Sam

We're looking at a target of 5-10 buyers, and as soon as we have those 'locked in' I will post the details on it (prices, options, etc), we will start the prototyping process after we have the interest expressed.

Thanks for your interest, all!

I'd be intereested and open to purchase depending in part on the timeline for payment and delivery. I got holiday shopping to do but I'd like to get myself sometnin' so what's the timeline for production? Pablo
Right now, we have not even got a mold. I just found out their interest a few days ago, and relayed it here, to see what you all think. I'm really glad that you all have expressed so much interest. :) As for a timeline, I am aware that we are going into the holiday season (for those of you in retail...I feel your pain), and we should have a prototype out *hopefully* a little after the first of the year, with the final production model...this is all speculation though...as events progress here, I will let y'all know :)

The hood for the b15 is quite nice that they make! When would they want to make these hoods, how much would they be, and are they going to comie up with drawings first or are they going in blind?
The B14 hood is going to be very similar to the B15 hood. We'll be taking molds soon, and having a prototype by the first of the year, followed by the final production hood about a month or so down the line. Trust me, I will keep you all informed on this whole deal. I will not discuss pricing in this thread, because it is against the policies of GFOS, Inc (owners of the site), and it can be construed as advertising. Right now I don't even have a figure to draw from on pricing...

Update

Updated news!

I just spoke with my contact, Jermaine, at StoopidParts, and we will be meeting up in a few weeks to start the prototyping work on this hood.

There will be about three or four stages, and I will keep you updated.

The first stage will include me giving up my poor hood, and handing it over to be bent, spindled, mutilated, and used for the mold. Its all good, though, all in the name of helping my Nissan Bretheren out.

Second Stage will include me going back to Stoopid Parts and having the prototype being put on my car, checking for fittament, fit, finish, and quality. We will be sure to take pics and post 'em here. This will also include testing of things, underhood temp, as well as other things.

Third Stage -- Production hood! We will have the production hood on my car, and will be checking through everything once more, for fit, finish, quality, and other stuff. These guys are very very committed to making quality parts for Nissan/Infiniti vehicles. Once again, pics will follow!

Jermaine asked me to ask you all what you guys would like to see next for the B14 Sentra? Carbon Fiber gauge bezel thingies? If there is solid interest in an item, they'll make it!

You can express your interest here, or drop them a line at [email protected] Trust me, they want to hear from you! :)

Thanks, and I promise to keep you all updated on this as things progress.

Edit: Those of you who are solidly interested, please send me an e-mail to [email protected] with your Real Name, and e-mail address we can reach you at, so we can contact you personally regarding pricing, and shipping, etc. I've already heard from one person, and he knows who he is. :)

There is another thread with a guy named Sentra_Industies trying to do the same thing. But he is not successful.
I'm aware of that. :) Thanks for the heads up. The fellas at StoopidParts are no dummies. :D (pun intended). They know their stuff, and if the demand is high enough, and we have a good set of first buyers, they're willing to look into getting us hooked up with some sweet cosmetic things, and maybe down the road some suspension, but right now, they're working on more "show" mods than "go" mods.

Sitting in my car today, I was thinking (yes...contrary to popular belief I was thinking), that it would be kind of cool, to match the CF Bezels, they could also maybe create CF pieces for the black trim around the HVAC controls, and Stereo...you guys know what I'm talkin 'bout, right? :D As well as a piece for those of us blessed (I'm being sarcastic here) with the Automatic transmissions...ya know à la Nis-Knacks with their Wood Trim Pieces. :) What you all think?

Re: I would like these to match the hoods....

And the grills I make would look sweat C/F. Or even better yet, The grill and hood being one C/F unit...... AHHHHH YEAHHHHH. If I had all that I would prob paint the hood edges over the headlights back over the fenders and only leave the grill, hood vents, and fender vents C/F. Wow that would turn so many heads and look clean as hell! :eek:
I e-mailed Jermaine on that, and he'll look into it. :)

Will be availible as soon as I can get up to meet Jermaine, though first I need to get my "temporary" car while my B14 is hood-less. It'll probably be my neighbor's S13 240SX AT :(

Yes! Yes! We will have the scoop! :D
