Default Wanted: Carbon Fiber Hood

I'm looking for a carbon fiber hood. I know someone on the forums was making them years back. Hoping someone has one they are looking to part with. I'd prefer the stock one without the vents.

Why not do a "wrap" ? Minimal cost involved too.

Sorry, I'm not wanting the look of carbon fiber. I want the weight savings! I recently had my hood strut go on me and realized just how heavy of a hood these cars have. I believe the carbon hood saves about 40lbs.

To save the hood strut taking a constant load I always raise the hood to the maximum and let the stops on the strut take the load.
