Lots of progress on the B8 vent and MMI pieces. These will be getting sent out on Monday so hopefully we’ll have some installed pictures shortly.
Before we start, the black pieces are for the B8 A4/S4 and are done in a 11oz 2×2 twill. The red pieces are for a B8 A5/S5 and are done in a 6oz 2×2 twill red carbon/kevlar hybrid.
About a week ago after the resin had cured. Still a lot of work needed to be done to get these pieces looking good.
An hour or so with the Dremel and all the excess fiber is trimmed and grinded off the pieces.
These pieces are clearcoated and wetsanded. I tend to do multiple coats of clearcoat, allow it to cure, wetsand, then more clearcoat. I feel as this really enhances the overall look of the higher end pieces and gives them stunning depth.
After the second round of clearcoat, the pieces look great.
Couple of close up detail shots around the curves. These pieces are extremely difficult to wrap because of how complex they are. It usually takes multiple attempts to get it right.
The same pieces in red for the B8 A5/S5. The pieces are very similar, but have some subtle differences.
More detail shots.
Finally we have the shifter pieces. I’ll get these wrapped up and out to their respective owners in the next few days. Can’t wait to see how the vent and MMI pieces look with the rest of the set.
