    Default Bit of carbonizing

    had some spare time today so went about carbon wrapping a few bits. handles needed doing first as they were a right mess then done steering wheel bottom spoke and the ashtray and ciggy lighter bit. im happy with the results as id never used this stuff before but it was quite easy to use to be honest.

    That looks to be a good job, are you going to do the rest of teh trimings-dash and door panels? Think it would look smart if it was all done!

    Suggestion: wrap the anti-roll bar, track rods and drop links with the carbon-vinyl stuff - that way it'll look like you've got carbon fibre suspension, just like an F1 car.
