Custom order from a very good customer of mine. OEM 5 star center caps wrapped in 20oz 2×2 twill. I’m very excited to see how these look on the car. I love subtle touches of carbon like this that might not get noticed by the average person.
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 […]
Got these pieces clearcoated up today. I’ll probably wetsand them down a bit and do another few layers of clearcoat because I really want these pieces to look good. After sanding and before clearcoat. After the first few coats. Couple of detail shots on the vent piece. Few closeups of the MMI piece. Keep in […]
More and more B8 customers have been asking me if they could get vent and MMI pieces made in carbon fiber that matched the OEM carbon atlas trim. I had some extra cores laying around so I figured I’d give it a shot. The fabric I’m using for this is an 8 harness satin weave […]
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 […]
We were able to make quite a bit of progress on the custom red carbon/kevlar A5 seatbacks today. These should have clearcoat on them by the end of the weekend, and hopefully can be finished up shortly after that. Sam wetsanding out some of the big scratches after he blocked it smooth. A quick rinse […]
Finally finished polishing up the beltline and will be wrapping it up and shipping it off to its owner tomorrow. It should be at his door step (and hopefully installed) by the end of the week.
I got done clearcoating the door pieces pretty late last night. They turned out beautiful. I really couldn’t be any happier with them. Perfect lines, no waves on the finish at all. Very clean edges. I was going to just post these pictures last night, but I felt like the images of the pieces under […]
I haven’t stayed on top of updating the blog with the progress on all this custom A5 stuff, so I’ll just do one huge post with everything (I’m almost done with a lot of it, so there will be more updates on it in the coming days). These seatbacks are going to look amazing once […]
UPS just showed up with a brand new set of A5/S5 set of trim from Europrice. I’ll be able to start tearing it down over the weekend. This set will be getting a custom look with a red carbon kevlar hybrid fabric, so it will really stand out.
