First 20oz twill set…

My standard fiber is an 11oz 2×2 twill, but I’m always looking at new fibers to make custom pieces.  A few weeks ago I ordered some 20oz 2×2 twill carbon fiber so I could experiment with it on some sets and I finally finished the first one.  It’s a B6/B7 set, which was a perfect set to start with because the OEM B7 RS4 carbon fiber trim uses a 20oz fabric.

Most people wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the two at first glance, but when you see the fiber side by side its pretty apparent.  The 20oz is thicker than the 11oz because each thread of the weave has more strands of carbon.

I’m really happy with how it turned out.  I’ve got a couple other sets in the works with the 20oz (including a B5 set that should be done in a few days) and will keep the 20oz in stock for future custom orders.
