CF bling

I just saw this over on the 911 forum and thought that those of you thinking about spending hudreds on carbo fiber shrouds etc. might want to look at this. Escpeially since some of our plastic parts arent available if CF.
Let's see your hydro dipped parts...here's mine

A few words come to mind: spew, up-chuck, blow chips, ralph, regurgitate, hurl, puke, and vomit. However, with moderation and the right color scheme this might be pretty nice stuf. But the example was far too pimped for my ride...each to his own!

I agree the example was over done. But instead of spending hundreds for a shroud. I was looking at getting a shroud and the heater connections. But this might be less expensive and possibly more durable. Also was thinking of some of the interior parts people try to get but are WAY over the top price wise. I prefer the stock interior look but have seen CF and wood burl kits over the years for a ton of money.

Don't think it would be too bad if it was the standard grey'ish black CF colour.

I went to the website they have every cf pattern looks like in every color plus wood grain cammo. etc. they do car interior parts. guns, body panels, pretty much anything you can paint. Honestly a cf painted hood would look tons better than to some the poorly laid up cf hoods i have seen. wouldnt turn yellow and fade in the sun either.

Most of it is it's Carbon fiber laminated over fiber glass. Actually heavier. If i ever build a track car and go CF on the body though it will be real and will be covered with paint.

If you just want something that looks the part look at 3M Di-Noc vinyl.
