    Ripspeed X - still exists? More to the point, do they still do dipping?

    as per title really ^^

    considering a few ideas for the mk3, and wondered if Ripspeed X still existed in some form or another, and if they still did the "dipping" that they used to do. I know DaveCoupe had a load of carbon bits done, but that was a little while ago now and I can't find any recent info, which leads me to think they're no longer doing it...

    anyone know any different? any gateshead members know if the service is still run in the Team Valley store?

    i never said its carbon fibre

    i know exactly how/what they do, its heated adhesive in a vat, they lower the item in it and the film they apply floats on top. then they lift your item out and the film moulds itself to the item. they work it all in properly, then lacquer it to harden it.

    I don't want Carbon Fibre effect BTW, I want something a little different
