      If I did do the dash, doors, and center console, I'd do them in black only so it would be more subtle. But at this point I am in agreement with you that those pieces would be too much.

      Just to be clear, I am not selling these door pulls or any other little pieces I make for my car. It's just a side project that I'm sharing. Hopefully it encourages others to try and do cool mods...

      Problem is, some OEM trunk spoilers are held in with 3M tape as well (sometimes with the aid of adhesive). One that fits this poorly is either poorly designed, poorly built, or poorly installed.

      Already in the works, along with handbrake as well.

      Unsure if I will do the door/dash/center console trim yet.

      Not sure, but probably 10-20. I took my time on these and worked on them when I had a free moment. If I made them a few more times and focused on only them it would speed things up, but only...

      I got these clearcoated twice in the last few days. Not sure if I'm going to keep them gloss or switch to matte, but either way I'm happy with how they turned out. I'll probably end up giving this...

      That's kind of a dumb way of looking at things.

      One could make the same argument that "I doubt VW would leave 100hp in the engine by using a passive tune." The car manufacturers/designers have...

      All of which have nothing to do with how much it costs to manufacture a part and are not good reasons to bash a company trying to bring new products to market. Lots of resellers offer free shipping...

      Don't worry, you've made that very clear.



      The weave wouldn't make the intake prone to cracking, the amount and type of epoxy would. And as far as I can tell, this is a pre-preg, multi layered...

      Anything under $500 probably won't look that good (weave distortion), will be made in china (poor fit), is going to be mostly fiberglass (flimsy), and use the cheapest possible resin possible (will...

      This is true. But complaining about the price won't change a thing. It's expensive, but its expensive for a reason: it's expensive to make. Manufacturing a part of that nature is not cheap or...
    14. If all you guys do is complain about price,...

      If all you guys do is complain about price, manufacturers aren't going to develop nice parts for our cars. Yup, its a lot of money, but its a complicated, well manufactured, designed part, made with...

      If you only care about looks, a carbon fiber intake isn't for you. Carbon is going to have much lower thermal conductivity than any plastic/metal intake, which is going to keep the temp of the air...

      Tooling prototype. Last thing you want to do is spend a ton of money on molds for something you aren't sure will fit correctly or not.

      It's what I did 10 years ago. :laugh: I just don't sell to VW people for the most part.



      This is a pretty special fabric, its 4x more expensive than regular carbon fiber. It comes in a few...
