    As for carbon fiber, it is much stronger than urethane and fiberglass, just less elastic. Don't count on it surviving any crash.

    Urethane is what I'd pick for body parts also, at least the big parts, and if the car is not a trailer queen, which I am sure it isn't. CF is for strictly big bucks race cars only, or if used on the street, only for the not important pars. CF Bumpers that are going to get bumped into will not take a lot of abuse without some type of elastomer coating, as well as several layers of CF. As for the strength of CF, is has a much higher tensile strength, and that is why you see cars like the enzo ferrari utilizing CF frames, and not urethane ones.

    There's a ton of stuff available for the 6G Accords... just look around. You might try calling Carboy if you want performance goodies, or maybe my buddy Sam at CAC (Competition Audio Concepts) at Bellaire & Fondren if you want accessories.
