    My neighbour has a business that makes Carbon Fibre racing panels for the Yamaha team and has just been approached by Noble and TVR to make stuff for them.
    Anyway I have had a natter with him and he has said that if I can get decent orders for stuff he will start to make it, he needs order numbers so it pays to make the tooling up.
    He says that he can do Mirror covers, Door handle covers, Door Pillar trims, Sill trims etc plus anything else.
    He only uses real Carbon Fibre not Carbon dipping as he has never herd of it.
    He also mentioned that he could inlay say Vectra-C.com on sill trims etc, but I need to speak to Duncan about that first.
    What do you peeps think and would anyone be interested.

    EDIT: After speaking to Duncan I must explain that this is to gauge interest in these items and then maybe arranging it through the forum as shop merchandise or with the company as an AT. Please post what you would like if it comes off.

    I would be interested in some bits but obviously cost is a massive thing. Mirror covers sound good at the very least.

    No examples as yet as he needs to make the moulds to make the Carbon fibre item.
    As for price,unsure of that either.
    It seems that pillar trims mirror covers and under bonnet seems favorite at minute so I will have a word and maybe he can use my car as the mould items.
    This isnt going to happen over night but keep letting me know what you would like and I will see what can be sorted.

    As per the original post this is to just and try and gauge what the most popular items could be.
