Eye candy is what will get peoples attention.
Also. How many layers of fabric, and what type of weave? Are you using polyester ,or epoxy?
Is there a clear gel coat to give it some UV protection since it's on the top of the car?
Also, there are some other members here that have done that, which turned out pretty neat.

here are some answers
layers of fabric, and what type of weave? fiberglass with gelcoat. carbon weave will be the 3k stuff. looks like all other types of CF
5 layers of FG and 1 layer of CF to keep the cost down. I anyone is intersted in full CF let me know.
Are you using polyester ,or epoxy? Epoxy resign with UV coating.
Is there a clear gel coat to give it some UV protection since it's on the top of the car? UV clear coat.
also this will be a cover or replacement roof. I think is will fab up some kind of addtional bracing since the top will be cut out.
thanks for the response. I will make a mold of it after I finish.
I should have some pictures up this week.

I just did a sunroof patch, but I'm not completely happy with the finished product.
edit: thought I might mention that the CF wouldn't mean much to me at all, so a straight FG one to keep costs down would be appealing if it is significantly cheaper.

If you don't have anything nice to say, insult somebody.
