Ready to start the “OEM” vent & MMI group buy

We got the cores in from Germany yesterday, so I can start production on these in the next few days. By my count I have about 25 A4/S4 vent and MMI sets of cores, and close to 10 A5/S5 sets as well, so hopefully after this group buy is completed I’ll have plenty of cores […]

Making simple molds for the B8 vent and MMI pieces…

Over the past few weeks I’ve been working on various improvements to help with the production of the B8 “OEM” carbon fiber vent and MMI pieces.  I spent the last day or so making simple foam molds that help support the pieces under vacuum.  Previous brackets would cave in under full vacuum.  Running the pump […]

“OEM” B8 Vent and MMI trim production – part 2…

We’ve made a bunch of progress on these pieces in the last week or so. First and foremost, we got the bag system running multiple parts now.  We’ve also made an upgrade to the molds that I’ll detail in a separate post because it is a neat little process. We’ve also had to deal with […]

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 […]

“OEM” B8 Vent and MMI trim production – part 1

Got a bunch of these in a little bit ago and have begun production on them. The goal will be to produce these in a 8 harness satin weave (8HS) so that they are similar to the OEM carbon atlas trim found in the B8 S4. We’re going to be doing these pieces differently than […]

Adam’s Rotors D2 S8 carbon fiber trim production…

A few months ago Adam from Adam’s Rotors approached me about doing a custom set for his Project S8, which has been uniquely dubbed ROTORS8.  At first I was a little hesitant, as the A8/S8 sets are large and cumbersome, but after talking with Adam for a bit I decided to press ahead.  Working with him over […]

Just started some colored carbon/kevlar B8 sets…

The camera doesn’t really do these pieces justice (my cheapo digital that is covered in resin coupled with fluorescent lights in the warehouse).  The look like a bright red and blue, but in person they are more of a deep, subtle color.  Once I add the resin, they will darken up a bit as well. I’ll continue […]

Audi Cabrio carbon fiber trim production

Working on 20oz 2×2 twill cabrio set right now so I figured I’d post up some pics of it.  The front door pieces are insanely long, almost as big as the A8 door pieces. Unfortunately, cabrio core sets of trim are a little tough to come by.  The original core that was sent to me […]

Couple of custom B8 carbon fiber trim sets…

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 […]
