carbon fibre bits?
« on: 16:15, Sun 04 September 2011 »
i've been looking and the place that did the door cards has bit the dust.

would there be an interest in a cf dash? or other bits?

is that performance trim you are on about, very sad times to have lost them, they did some excellent work.
they made me a carbon bonnet for my mk1 fiesta a couple of years back, quality was incredible

That bonnet looks quality with the framework underneath as well.  8)

When i used to be into 205 GTI's you could get carbon fibre bonnets, which to be fair were really light but they had a nasty habit of flapping about at higher speeds. That one above looks a lot more substantial.
