Would be a clean option for wiper delete/shave emblem, etc. Should make regular FRP or fiberglass as well as CF.

Fiberglass could definitely be a option for people wanting to color match them I would actually offer that as a extra being I work in a paint body shop

But off the top of my head I would say $175 for fiberglass painted to match car or $125 primed and carbon around $250 but like I said depends on the build cost the carbon and epoxy resin are pricey even the fiberglass ones would be done with epoxy resin it's a lot stronger and less shrinkage

Just offer it painted in OEM colors. Im gonna paint mine the factory silver because I hate it being in black on a silver car

EDIT its too easy to wrap that piece in carbon fiber or CF vinyl. Less then $10 in cost. making it explicitly in carbon fiber will make it prone to not being 100% fitment, and actually heavier than the stock piece
