LOL its not carbon fibre per say. its like spay paint. but not.

i dont think you want your tailshaft spayed in paint. lol

but being serious though a carbon fibre shaft would be nice. have you thought about geting a FPV/HSV style 2 peice with a unijoint.

but back to the dash. 100 spot on dude nice work.

Yeah like JMC said its not actual carbon fibre. Its a film that floats on a liquid surface and the part is dipped into it (becomes a gel film). Its as tough as a painted surface but not tough enough for what your wanting it for.

Ask what? About carbon fibre tailshaft. Its purely cosmetic, its just a carbon fibre pattern.

But it will strenghten the tailshaft dramaticly. Im hopeing to get a two piece alloy shave the tailshaft down to matching weight all along then wrap in carbon fibre. Add a few tailshaft loops and the f**k will never have a problem again.

Cheers
Spider

P.S. I believe in doing things right the first time and never touching again.

Dude i dont think it will do anything for the tailshaft. its only gelcoat paint. No Stronger than spay paint.


you will need to see someone like AWC who do the Carbon Fibre Bonnets and other parts for the BA.

Hi all. After only about 5 weeks (3-4 days was the estimate) my carbon fibre coated dash parts have finally arrived. I may get them in on the weekend but I may not either. Here are some pics. Tell me what you think.

The pattern's kinda...yeah. I dunno. I'll reserve judgement until it's in the car.

Although as John says, the quality looks good.

That is a mighty fine looking set of parts you gots there.

how did you get / make the holes for the 3 guages on the top left bit (cant think of name. Also what are the other thing below it on the left?

I wanna see your car once everythings done, going to / going in any shows / comps??

I was going to do exactly the same thing with my interior plastics, but I still can't justify the price. Looks hell sweet though!!

Love the guages dude! I wanted to do something similar in my EB but with black guages, but the price of them put me off a bit. Having seen yours though I might put it back on the agenda! Very nice.

I super glued some plastic the was cut and formed to shape to give it a flat space and then just cut the holes with a hole saw. Then just used car body filler to smooth out any low spots. The things on the bottom left are the steering column shrouds.

Modicoat in Qld did the job (there is a link earlier in this thread) and cost $700 all up including GST and courier back and forth (not cheap but I think its worth it).
