Just got done with some sweet carbon B8 center caps…

Made these for an RS5 owner, but I’m pretty sure they will fit quite a few B8 wheels. I’m really happy with how they turned out and can’t wait to see what they look like installed. You might remember some of our previous B8 center caps.

Starts off as a bare cap, wrapped in carbon. Having to drill out the holes for the chrome bits was pretty time consuming.


The chrome around the edge snaps into place and the rings are glued in from behind.





More progress on the BMW 5 series carbon fiber trim

We’ve got the epoxy on now, and they’re really taking shape.  We’ll put these in the oven for a few days to help speed up the cure, then we’ll trim off all the excess carbon and start sanding the epoxy smooth.  More pics to come soon.

I’ve got this e90 set of trim finished up and ready to ship.  It’s a full 8 piece set.  It includes 2 dash pieces, 4 door pieces, ashtray cover, and a non iDrive, manual shifter piece.  It was made with an 11oz 2×2 twill fabric.

Price is $800, with a $400 refundable core deposit (core deposit would be refunded to you after you installed the carbon fiber trim and returned your original trim back to us).

First of the new models we’re working on: 2011 BMW 535i

In an effort to start offering products to new makes and models, we recently put a call out to see if we could find some high end car owners willing to send us their interior trim so we could work our magic.  The first person we found was a 2011 535i owner, and he got us his trim pretty quick.  We’re about halfway through his set, so we figured we’d share the progress.

The OEM trim is an aluminum stamped trim that looks okay.  You’ll notice its got a nice chrome accent edge, which we’ll retain.  It also has some nice contours on the pieces which we will try to keep as much as we can (the thickness of the fabric will dilute them a bit, but they still should be noticeable).

First step is to remove the chrome edges and peel back the aluminum.  After that is completed, we grind down to plastic to make room for the carbon and to give the epoxy something to adhere too.

Then we cut the fabric down to size and get it ready for wrapping.  We went with an 11oz 2×2 twill on this set.  I wanted to do a 20oz 2×2 twill, but I was afraid of it being too thick and there being fit issues with the chrome accent on some of the pieces.

And now the fun begins and the set starts to take shape.

The door pieces are a lot thinner without the chrome accents.  You can see the contours have been retained.

The dash piece is massive.

Love this shifter piece.  I can’t wait to see how it looks finished.

That’s it for now.  We’ll get epoxy on these over the next few days and do another update then.

To get an idea of how this will look finished, check our gallery, in particular the gallery of an e90 BMW:

Few more CTS-V sets finished up

These were done in the standard 2×2 twill fabric, so they’ve got a traditional carbon fiber look.  I can’t wait to see some installed pictures so we can add them to the CTS-V gallery.
