Started working on Audi B pillars…

I had a B5 S4 Avant customer who purchased a set of interior trim and wanted and wanted a little something extra for his exterior as well.  He asked if I could do the B and C pillars for his S4.

It took us a little while, but we were able to get it sorted.  These are full replacement parts made with OEM pillars, wrapped in 20oz 2×2 twill carbon fiber:

We’ve also started some B6/B7 pillars:

OEM pillars are stripped and prepped.

Epoxy is applied and the fabric is wrapped.

Extra fabric is removed.

Epoxy is spread on and built up.  This will be cured in a week or so and ready to be sanded smooth.

I’ve even got a custom set of 5HS pillars in the works for my buddy Nick.  He’s got a one of a kind set of 5HS carbon fiber interior trim.  He’s also got a 5HS carbon fiber front plate too, hopefully we’ll see some installed pictures of that soon.

Keep an eye out for installed photos of these center caps…

Custom order from a very good customer of mine.  OEM 5 star center caps wrapped in 20oz 2×2 twill.  I’m very excited to see how these look on the car.  I love subtle touches of carbon like this that might not get noticed by the average person.

Another C5 A6 added to the gallery…

Just got some new installed pictures of a 20oz 2×2 twill C5 set and have added them to the gallery.  The full gallery can be found here.

If you’re interested in having the same set made for your C5, check our product page:

Finished up the e90 BMW carbon fiber trim…

and it will be shipping out shortly.  We just need to give it a few days to cure before it gets a final polish and gets shipped out.

I’ll make sure to post a bunch of pictures after everything is installed.

e90 BMW carbon fiber trim production…

We just started our first official set of BMW carbon fiber trim.  It’s for a 2006 e90 325i sedan.  We decided to wrap it in an upgraded 20oz 2×2 twill fabric to make sure the trim really stood out.  Once this is done we’ll start an e92 set (hopefully from an M3) and it will get the same treatment.  Stay tuned for more details and pricing…

 

First we took the stock wood set, sanded it down to make room for the carbon fiber, and added a coat of bonding epoxy.

Once the epoxy had firmed up a bit, we began to wrap the pieces in the 20oz 2×2 twill fabric.

Next comes the long process of slowly building up the epoxy on the surface to give the pieces depth.

That’s all for now.  I’ll post more pictures after the epoxy has cured and the pieces have been trimmed, sanded, and cleaned up for clearcoat.
