Group Buy JDP Carbonfiber Fenders

I was told by JDP if I could get 20 people that are interested in getting carbon fiber fenders for the GE8 Fit they would make them for us. Is there 19 other individuals out there interested in getting a pair?

Hello,

I just received an email from JDP and it’s going to be $500 - $600 for OEM style. I also asked if they could add vents to them. Let me know what you all think about adding vents.

Considering how JDP just vanished the last time they did stuff for Fitfreak, y'all are wild.

Are they going to be exactly the same as OEM but fibreglass/carbon fibre top? That has zero benefit.

Not sure how they’re going to be made, but what do you recommend? I asked about adding a vent to them and they said that it will increase the price and that they will still need 20 buyers that are willing to put down a $150 deposit.

I'd recommend not spending hundreds of dollars on a part that won't save you weight, will not give you additional space for more tire & will crack upon any contact with a tire, as opposed to metal...which doesn't.

And you still need to paint the things, unless you want your car to look like butt.

This.

His stuff is not light. His molding style is not exactly designed for weight saving. Trust me I know. My hood is so much heavier than VIS or Seibon hoods.

To ship two CF fenders to the east coast from california, Good luck. His freight method sucks balls, not to mention his "packaging."

They? It's one guy. Good luck getting them made in a timely manner.

Would you or anybody happen to know another company that makes carbon fiber parts for the GE8, because I can’t find any? 🤔

The question is:

Why do you want carbon fibre fenders for your Fit?

The stock fenders on the car are so small, there is simply not a ton of weight to be saved.

Unless you're going dry carbon, which you're not if you're buying from VIS, Shine, Seibon, JDP, etc.

And this is exactly why the fit community is garbage. Because of people like you two nit picking peoples choices. So what if there half a lb heavier than stock are you both buying them for me ? I dont understand why people just jump on a post to bash.

Wow.

I finally came back on here and saw something new that might look cool.

And the community is being the community, as usual.

The comments in this thread are either add me to list, or people continuing to complain about the non functionality of the part or repeated harping on the vendor. There are better ways to phrase things.

People know about JDP, most of those commenting already have the products and have been through the "service" ...

Let people do the shit they want to, with their car.
