    Check out this silver carbon fiber trim set we’re working on…

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Few more pics of the manufacturing process here.

    It’s the first silver “carbon fiber” (which is actually aluminum coated fiberglass) trim set for a B8 we’ve done and it is turning out fantastic. The epoxy is all cured now and it will be trimmed down, sanded smooth, and clearcoated in the next week or so. I can’t wait to see how this looks installed in a black Audi interior.

    Wow I would have considered that I think, mind you I still haven't seen what a full carbon set would look like in my car yet... ;)

    That is the FIRST CF set I would consider using since black or regular gray just blends in with S-Line interior.

    How much? Will you have replacement pieces for all of the aluminum pieces in an S-Line car?

    Not my fault you went on sabbatical.

    Not sure of cost yet. I'm still having a few issues with the stubborn shifter piece. The person that ordered this set has been very patient, so I think its only fair that he be the only one with a silver set for at least a little while.

    All that is planned at the moment are the pictured door/dash pieces and a shifter piece, but I'm sure others could be made for those interested.

    There is a dyed white fiberglass, but it is very expensive (about 3x more expensive than carbon fiber). It could be made, but would probably add $200-300 to the cost in just materials alone.

    I'm going to try and do it, but the silver might not want to cooperate with the complexities of those pieces. I'll post some pictures of my attempts in this thread in the near future.

    I'm not sure I understand the logic in that as I'm sure if you'd have said silver was an option you'd have had more than just him willing to do it, but whatever, that's your call to make.

    The only pieces I'm looking to do are the door/dash/and shifter pieces so that works for me.

    These sets are difficult to make, so I'm not sure of the cost yet and I'm not in a rush to make a bunch of these. If you're interested, a set can be made for you, it just won't be an available option right away, that's all.

    I keep trying to convince myself I don't need CF interior trim, but you always tempt me with these kinds of posts...

    It will for sure be an option, it just isn't going to be available right away because I have A LOT of vent and MMI pieces to make right now that will be a priority.

    Since we're just a small shop, we can't pump out a ton of parts yet, but I'll be able to make some silver sets in the next couple months.

    Still working on it. The rigid silver has not been cooperating and lifted a few times. I mail these out though so you can at least have them while I finish the shifter.

    Hey Matt,

    What is a setup like that + the trim around the shifter going to cost a guy?

    A few people asked for better pictures of the pieces in natural light. It was really tough to get solid pictures that capture how they look in person. This was the best I could do:








    I tried taking some in the shade, but the color was awful. It looks blue and tan because its reflecting off the sky and the side of the building:

    I don't think I could do mirror caps with this material yet, as it is very rigid. I'd need a lot more practice with it before I could get it around more complicated curves.

    I've got one more of these sets available. Right now the beltline is ready to ship, the shifter is being made. Email me at matt@ocarbon.com if you're interested.








    Few pictures of a shifter in production:
