We’ve done a few B8 A4/S4 carbon fiber sets of trim so far, but up until now they have all been the standard 11oz 2×2 twill (you can see some of those sets in the B8 gallery).
We recently got a bunch of B8 cores from Germany so we figured it would be time to start getting a little more custom with some of them. I’m hoping to have these sets trimmed and sanded smooth sometime next week so I can clearcoat them. I’ll post more pictures as I make further progress on them.
First is the 20oz 2×2 twill. This is the same fabric found on the B7 RS4 OEM carbon fiber trim. The weave is twice as thick as the standard 11oz 2×2 twill. I’ve done some blog posts comparing the 20oz and 11oz in the past. Side by side it becomes apparent how much nicer the 20oz is.
Few close ups of the 20oz.
Up next we have a harness satin weave, known as 8HS. I believe this fabric is very similar to the B8 OEM carbon fiber trim.
Up close you can see how tight the weave is.
Few more shots of the 8HS.
Lastly we have another harness satin weave, but this time it is a 5HS. It is basically the same thing as the 8HS but with thicker bunches of fiber.
Few close ups of the 5HS.
Lastly we have some B5 pics of the 8HS. We’re also currently working on a B6/B7 set with the 5HS. Hopefully I can post some updates on these sets soon.
