Custom red CTS-V center console started…

We just got started on some more CTS-V pieces for a customer in Chicago.  He wanted to maintain the factory look of the original door and dash pieces, but still do something that would set his car apart.  Eventually he decided to go with a red carbon/kevlar hybrid fabric just on his center console pieces.

We start with the raw fabric wrapped onto the original plastic parts.

Then gradually add epoxy resin.  You can see that the kevlar doesn’t soak in the epoxy very well, so the texture of the fabric can still be seen somewhat on the surface.  This will have to be aggressively sanded smooth after the parts are cured.

The radio face has multiple sections that will need to be drilled out by hand.  This is, by far, the most time consuming part on the set.

These will go into the oven for a post cure in the next couple of days.  After that, they’ll get trimmed and sanded smooth and ready for clearcoat.

Couple quick CTS-V install teaser photos…

You may remember the custom red and black CTS-V interior we did a few months ago and we’ve finally got a few installed photos.

Now I know these aren’t the best photos in the world (they were taken with a cell phone) but they’re better than nothing.  The owner has promised us legit photos with a real camera once the weather clears up.  The red looks a little bright in these, its a bit more dark  and subdued in person.

I’m really happy with how it turned out, particularly the center console piece.

 

First installed pictures from a 996 Porsche…

Big thanks to my friend Joey at EuroAddiction for being the first to get some parts made for his 911 GT3 as well as Angela Pappas at Fl@sh Photography for taking the time to get some pictures done for us.

These parts were made with a custom 20oz 2×2 twill fabric, which uses almost 4 times as much individual strands of carbon fiber than a standard weave.  More strands equals a thicker, tighter weave.

I’ve got more parts in the works for this car, so keep your eyes open for those soon.  If you’re interested in having parts made for your Porsche, fill out our custom quote form and we can get you setup.

Check out this custom red A3 set we’re working on…

It is only the second A3 set we’ve ever made, and it just happens to be made out of red carbon/kevlar.  We’re also doing the A frames that surround the shifter, but those are going to take a bit longer.

Stay tuned for installed pictures.

 

 

I’ve got two B8 A4/S4 sets done and ready to ship…

if anyone is interested.

These sets just need to be polished and could be shipped out the day after payment has been made.  Good opportunity to get a set that is ready to go without the normal 3-4 week lead time.

These sets were done in an upgraded 20oz 2×2 twill fabric (the same fabric that is found in the OEM RS4 carbon fiber trim).  This upgraded fabric is normally $100 extra, but I’ll sell these two sets at the regular price.

Email me at matt@ocarbon.com if you’re interested in picking this up or if you have any questions.

Price: $600

Shipping: Free

Core deposit:  $300 – this is refundable.  Once you install the carbon fiber trim, you can return your original trim back to us and the $300 will be refunded in full.

Pieces included:  Full 6 piece set, including 4 doors, 1 dash with quattro badge, and 1 shifter that fits both auto and manual vehicles.
