Finish

This group buy is for a Mazda Protege Roof Skin that fits the BJ-Chassis years 1999-2003.5.  Also known as the Mazda Etude and the Mazda 323.  This will not fit the Protege5 wagon model.  This product has been developed as a collaboration between CF and Andre Bembury. 

Installation is recommended to be completed by a professional as it requires removing the front and rear windows as well as removing the original roof skin and all spot welds.  For installation, we recommend 3M 08115 Panel Bonding Adhesive. 

All parts are made with epoxy and carbon fiber.  Original roof weight is 20 lbs and the new carbon weight is 8 lbs.  Finish options include mold finish (no clear coat), Unfinished Gloss Clear Coat, Spray Finish Matte and Blocked and Polished Clear Coat.

  • About the Group Buy Process

    Automotive group buys have traditionally been organized by individuals across a variety of platforms including forums and social media.  It is sloppy, time intensive, and risky.  Common Fibers is a trusted industry leader in automotive carbon fiber manufacturing and has all the tools necessary to implement unique, fast, and safe group buys that will get more carbon fiber into your hands while saving you money! 

    A custom carbon fiber part requires a $1,500 mold and then an additional $500 to make the part. In a group buy, these costs are split among 10 to 20 people and the final part costs just $400 per person. That's an 80% savings for a unique/ custom part!
