      There is no benefit to vacuuming these. Costs would increase, fitment would be worse, and quality would suffer.

      Could it be done? Sure. Is it worth it? Doubtful.

      Getting a little bit further along, the epoxy is a bit thicker now so you can see how much closer it is. Once this cures we'll start sanding it smooth.

      It's already been sold a long time ago. I can always make more.



      I buy it by the roll. It's not really for hobbyists as its pretty difficult and messy to work with.

      Not a wrap, it's real carbon fiber.



      Epoxy and clearcoat and a lot of hard work.




      This stuff blows fake "wraps" out of the water. What you're seeing is a progress picture, it's got a...

      My lease is up soon and I was getting bored, so it's time once again to change things up.

      My original trim was silver carbon fiber:

      Do they really call this OEM carbon? Did you pay a premium for this trim?

      Doubtful, but its just a standard speed nut. You can find it at any decent hardware store.

      It's not OEM, but doesn't really matter for a part like this. Lots of eBay simple parts like this have fake OEM part numbers and logos/stickers on them.

      Tried, couldn't make it happen. The whole reason I bought a GLI in the first place was to try and make high quality carbon fiber parts to the VW market. Too many fake alternatives (vinyl/hydrodip)...

      Not joking. Most of the stuff we make is for high end cars. Unfortunately, in my experience, VW owners aren't willing to pay the expense for high quality, real carbon fiber parts. I think I've...

      I changed up my interior trim...

      Many of you might remember my post from a a few years ago about how I made silver "carbon fiber" trim for my GLI.
