quick teasers of Rodolfo’s imola B5S4…

A few months ago I got in contact with a member on Audizine to see if he was interested in having my first custom yellow carbon/kevlar trim set in his car.  He happily obliged. I worked on his set and watched the progress he made on his car.  So while it has taken a while to get […]

More colored sets, this time for the B5…

I’ve done a few blue and red carbon kevlar sets for the B8 recently, so I figured I’d give a go at some colored B5 sets.  These sets are in the beginning stages of production and will darken up considerably once the resin and clearcoat has been applied, but you can get a good idea […]

Custom B5 set with the new 8HS fabric…

Couple of shots of the yellow carbon kevlar set…

all polished up.  The colors seem a little weird in the photos, but I think it’s just my camera and the poor florescent lighting in the shop.  Hopefully when I get some installed pics of the set in the car in natural lighting the color will be much more uniform.
