We just got started on some more CTS-V pieces for a customer in Chicago. He wanted to maintain the factory look of the original door and dash pieces, but still do something that would set his car apart. Eventually he decided to go with a red carbon/kevlar hybrid fabric just on his center console pieces. […]
You may remember the custom red and black CTS-V interior we did a few months ago and we’ve finally got a few installed photos. Now I know these aren’t the best photos in the world (they were taken with a cell phone) but they’re better than nothing. The owner has promised us legit photos with a […]
It is only the second A3 set we’ve ever made, and it just happens to be made out of red carbon/kevlar. We’re also doing the A frames that surround the shifter, but those are going to take a bit longer. Stay tuned for installed pictures.
We were able to get the two custom carbon kevlar sets we’ve been working on clearcoated today. Very happy with the results. Before we start, the pieces look almost matte as they have been sanded down to 800 grit to make a nice, smooth surface for the clear to adhere to. Only going to need […]
and it turned out great. I’ll be wrapping these pieces up next week and shipping them off to their owner, so hopefully we see some installed pictures of this set real soon. It is really hard to capture the color with a camera, but I did my best: In certain lights, the red looks dark […]
After getting the CTS-V pieces wrapped over the weekend, it was time to start brushing on the epoxy. The red kevlar does not soak up the epoxy very well, so it takes a few coats to get it saturated. The black 8HS fabric is easily wetted out though. Only took a few coats for the […]
Now that I’m an official vendor over at CadillacForums.com it’s the perfect time to do a full write up on the production of a CTS-V carbon fiber set of trim from start to finish. This particular set is going to be pretty custom, with red carbon/kevlar hybrid fabric being used on the main trim along the […]
I’ve got another custom kevlar set that just got shipped out to a C5 A6 owner. He should be receiving it any day now, so hopefully we’ll get some installed pictures soon. Up next to be polished: Another custom C5 A6 set, but this time in red.
Almost done adding resin to these pieces. After they cure I can start sanding them smooth.
With a little bit of resin on the pieces you can start to see their true color (especially compared to the pieces with just raw fabric). These pieces will be going in the oven for cure in the next few days and then sanded smooth. After that, they’ll be ready for clearcoat.
