for a B8 A4. It’s the first silver “carbon fiber” (which is actually aluminum coated fiberglass) trim set for a B8 we’ve done and it is turning out fantastic. The epoxy is all cured now and it will be trimmed down, sanded smooth, and clearcoated in the next week or so. I can’t wait to see how this looks installed in a black Audi interior.
Here are a few shots from the production:
First the pieces are prepped and the fabric is cut.
Then the pieces are added to the vacuum system and a bag is placed on top.
A vacuum pump removes the air and begins to hug the stiff fabric around the complex edges and curves of each piece.
After a time in the vacuum, the pieces are removed and are ready for epoxy.
First few layers of epoxy.
After many layers of epoxy the pieces are ready to start curing.
