Coincidentially, while reading the new nonfiction Spooked,<br>about exCIA, KGB, STASI, etc. taking jobs as spies for corporations, the author discussed the effort worldwide by automakers to have the chemical industry develop a high tech plastic that will handle frigid as well as desert temperatures--also some other requirements, like low price were mentioned. Apparently the auto industry wants to go in this direction in a big way. The idea would be to pretty much have a standard plastic trim material that would be used in most cars, most brands. I suppose they might be able to do something with the color or design (like a stripe) to give variety. <p>Well, I'm still gonna try and track down carbon fibre from aftermarket suppliers.
