Thanks! and I'm not sure either. Would be pretty sick for sure. I think that's how this guy started and expanded to different vehicles. He does it right to keep it in high demand, only does batches so you have to pre-order and it may take several months for your stuff to come in. But it's well worth the wait.

Definitely something to consider, but only down side is putting it back together....the epoxy is decently thick.

You could find a place that'll use pre-preg carbon and vacuum and probably wouldn't be as thick. But then it'd cost some $$$.

What you should do is pull molds off the interior pieces, build/buy a vacuum system and make new replacement parts. Then it'd be some what easy to make more and you could sell them and recoup all your money back. :)

In case you didn't know, they make real carbon fiber overlays for our trucks. I've just never seen them installed

ive always had this thought in mind, but doing to the interior parts on the inside of the truck. still thinking about doing it just not sure on how to do it and or what materials to buy to get the job done...

Check out ebay, they sell kits that come with everything but sand paper.

I've been looking at the hydro-dipping technique. They can do some pretty spectacular things with that stuff as well. Any experience with interior parts on here? I've seen guns and exterior panels done, but no interior yet......

I have had both actual CF covered parts and Hydro dipped. The Real CF is NICE but it is thick and heavy so can be a PIA depending on the part to fit it back. I have also done Hydro Dipped parts on a previous mustang and its nice. But to do it properly you need someone that is going to clear coat it with automotive grade clear coat with a few layers to protect it. I would require a matte/satin clear coat as I hate the glare gloss created on anything inside a vehicle.

I wouldn't think clear coating it would be a big deal at home, would it? Automotive paint suppliers have it in the cans and it is a pretty small area being coated.

Long as you have a place you can set up a clean spay booth. Doing a quality clearcoat needs clean air or you will get debris in the clear. And when you are doing multiple layers it makes it so you can polish it out if its in a previous layer.

I had a Remington 870 SuperMag shotgun professionally hydrodipped several years ago for duck hunting. It looked nice after getting it back, but was disappointed how it held up in real world use. I always cased my gun when transporting it and was gentle with it when out of the case. Would I hydrodip a gun again? No. Would I do the interior, eh, maybe but probably not since it's permanent.
