Having my interior center pieces done in carbon fiber

Finally got around to taking my center interior pieces out and having them covered in carbon fiber in matte finish to match the door handles.

Will keep you guys posted as I receive updated pictures. Im not sure if i can post who is doing the work as they are not a sponsored vendor.....mods?

Nice, but you're opting for the non-reversible option....

Keen to see the final result.

Just say the work is being done by [this company]. Don't post any active link to their site.

That looks good. Are you doing anything with the buttons?

This, in my humble opinion, is the best way to do it. I've been exploring getting mine done, but I can't locate a vendor that's willing to do it at a reasonable cost.


Please inbox your vendor.

That wont be an issue. Its going to look factory However i did keep my top ski slope just in case and bought a damaged one on ebay that i sent to have covered. The other two panels are relatively cheap to find if i need to go back to OEM.

Yes Ive had this process done in the past and parts come out looking factory. They lay real carbon over plastic or metal panels. I mean they can lay it over anything, Ive seen motorcycle tanks covered and it looks like a fully carbon piece.

Very very nice! This is in my to-do list as well... I like how you chose to do it all the way through and not just the fascia. Make sure they do a very high temp clear coat on it.

I started here with a 2K high temp ceramic coat... hopefully the engine bay won't cook it.
