At least the cardboard will be light weight.
Just make sure you at least paint it to make your car color!

I am betting that with a decent mold or over-lay we could fabricate our own lips and wings out of carbon fibre...it may be a bitch, but if you really want a 1-of-a-kind design, you could DIY one...

I might have to go all carbon fiber to save weight to get better gas mileage.
