Ok so I was doing a search for those sa-weet carbon fiber headlight dealies cause I'd like them to match my hood, and I found this canadian site that does all kind of very high quality looking work.

http://www.geminicomposites.com/

Apparently they do ALL KINDS of crap for the mk3. Ok so not THAT much but they do , hoods, headlights, and armrests (EDIT: DOOR PANEL IS MK4 SRY IT WAS WRONG ON THE SITE). I'm still looking into it but hopefully the driver side light does'nt have the little inlet...that'd be stupid...lol.

Did a search on the forums and nobody else posted it yet, so I thought i'd bring it to everybody's attention. Oh they also do some MKIV stuff so you might check that out.

The only problem is...does anybody know where i can get the headlight inlets for less than the 310usd or so it costs shipped from that site? I only paid about 430 for my hood from a cwing site (stock replacement) and it seems kinda steep. I guess I could always just paint the stockers black eh?

Just bought my sparcos for about 820 shipped (brand new) on ebay...to go in my non-running car. I swear that things a money pitt... Waiting for diagnosis on my knocking near race rebuilt engine (only thing stock is rods).... stupid ass stock ct-26 turbo blew up on me and spewed oil out the exhaust side...ended up with about 2 1/2 quarts gone in about 10 minutes and with rod knock while on my last run at TX2K6 Roadracing (never noticed ANY change in performance...nor did i see any smoke, what the hell?). POS

Enough of my problems... any suggestions for the headlight covers?

Note: Running stock boost at the time

upgradedsupra (duane), the owner, is a board member who has always supported the mk3 community. word on the street is that he does some top quality work.
Duane does good work, but there's nothing wrong with finding other sources for CF. That site looks very good as well, thanks for the find, True. BTW, what's been up with you, we haven't talked in awhile. Check out the South Forum for out meet we're having July 1st.

Yes we do and not anymore since there is a CF shortage.. He (Mark) is no longer in business either as I stated. I work with him and have been for years. All the MKII MKIII Supra and MKIV are again as posted from me. If you called and managed to get a hold of him (I doubt it) he will send you my way as I am just a walk away :)

Those door panels are crazy, but I believe they're for a MKIV.

BTW, when is the 89+ CF lip coming? ;)

so then as of now there is nowhere you can get the headlight dealies from?

yeah i was looking at that door panel and thinking it didn't look quite right, lol mainly cause of the speaker cover part. Did'nt stare at it too long though.

I have'nt been doing anything supra related cause my car is constantly down. Been down since tx2k6 cause of rod knock, and before that cause it was still getting tuned with my PHR map ecu....and various other minor bugs. I now have a BRAND NEW wiring harness as well as some other crap to throw in there. Depending on the extent of the damage done, I'm hopefully lookin at around 550hp or so....i think that'll probably be enough for me...lol. Whatev, I just want it done.

Also, the phone i had everybody's number in deleted all my numbers, you know, the one that didn't even have a key locker POS... I'll be sure to hit ya up when i'm back on the road.

it is not because of the war

it is because three different program are using massive amount of CF

Airbus
Boeing in their dream liner

and the F-22 planes. that is a ton of CF for just those programs.
