    would people be interested in real carbon parts?

    im just getting into carbon fibring using 200gm 2x2 twill weave and the expensive west systems epoxy resin that wont change colour with UV so im told like the cheaper pollester resins and sanded fron 240grit -1500grit wet and dry paper the lacquerd to give that deep carbon shine

    at the minute im doing my Z18xe engine cover in part flame red paint and part carbon and will be looking to do my wingmirror covers will put pics up when all is done and im happy with the results

    was just wondering if people would want things doing as nobody seems to make any carbon stuff for the astra so was after ideas of what to do and if people would buy it ?


    thanx

    i will get pics up next weekend hopfully as this weekend il be at fast show and it wont be ready

    tbh if you supplyed the bits unless i find somthing sereously wrong with the way im doing it probs about 100quid il make a price when i know how much work it is to polish it
    also im gunna try and make moulds that will fit on with just glue so i make the carbon fit my cover then remove it and post to you and you stick it on your existing cover

    dunno if its a definate because if i find out its much more work than expected il have to raise the price and dunno if people will pay so only time will tell

    realy this thread was to get ideas of things to do and judge the reaction i got from people so its not actualy a for sale add ect

    dunno if i could do centre console as so many differant angles for the carbon to sit right but have a spair one at home o may try
