Not available on the American Muscle site or on the TruCarbon site. They look awesome on his car though. Really would like to have them.

I know GM had to develop a UV resistant clear coat for the carbon fiber on the " Blue Devil" C6 Corvettes. It's $1000 a quart. Paint would be much cheaper, unless you want that yellowed look most mitsu's sport on their CF after a few years.

Most companies who sell CF parts like that (especially TruCarbon) have a UV coat on them


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Just sayin

From car and driver magazine:
Some of the carbon-fiber panels (splitter, rocker extensions, roof) will actually look like carbon fiber, with a clear-coat finish over the weave. Chevy has a new ingredient for the finish that resists the ultraviolet breakdown that’s been a problem. We don’t know the chemical ingredient, or who makes it—Juechter won’t say—but we do know it costs $60,000 a gallon. It’s used sparingly.

I'm guessing most aftermarket parts don't have it which is why they yellow and delam after a few years in the sun. The cost would drive the price of the parts beyond what most people would consider reasonable.
