Default Anyone seen a carbon fiber hatch in person.

So my hatch has cosmetic damage and instead of repairing it i thought about getting the carbon fiber hatch I have seen online. I like the look of carbon fiber and the advertised weight is a big savings over stock. My concern is that itís a pretty big and complex part and Iím suspect of the build quality and have never seen one in person.
Is there anyone here that has pics of one on a car or experience with one ? Would I put my glass back in it or a plastic rear window?
Thanks in advance, I just joined tonight and looking forward to getting back into working on my car.

I would advise not to get it due to that hatch being for strictly race only. You would need to actually swap your glass over to the cf one. Junk yards can sometimes have Tiís
