Sup guyss. My friend has taken it upon himself to start his own carbon fiber venture. He will be making accessories such as carbon fiber spark plug covers, air bag trays, and whatever else will sell but we just need an input on what the hell to make! So that's why this thread is here, what would you like for us to make out of carbon fiber that hasn't already been made for the Prelude? Air bag trays? Headlight brows? Etc?

Here are a few pics of the progress he's made so far, the product isn't quite perfect yet, but I promise it will get there.


Rolls of carbon fiber, black and red kevlar, and fiber glass.

Close up Carbon Fiber

Close up Kevlar, bullet proof vests anyone? lol

Cut ups

Ghetto fab work station

First Spark Plug cover, not that great, but getting there!

Perfect fit though?

Shitty pic, but you get the idea

DC2 Integra Passenger Airbag Tray

Underbelly


Things look a little "shady" right now because we haven't quite got the technique down, but don't worry, pics of the badass product will be up soon so stay posted!

well I really want a good cf spark plug cover. I can buy them from other places but they are hella expensive. What would you price them for? I would also be willing to buy other pieces as well if the price is right and the quality is good. Id be interested in things like headlight eyebrows, center console lid, and replacements for the oem fake carbon fiber trim pieces.

True, but when everything is said and done, our parts will be a lot cheaper than those made by companies. We understand that there are already a lot of companies that make carbon fiber parts, but the prices of these parts alone tend to scare people away. The whole reason why he has started this project was to make quality parts for cars and offer them to the public for a cheaper price. My friend will stand by his work as well, considering that he originally intended to make these pieces only for himself, you can count that he will be putting all the needed time and effort to make these pieces come out fantastic.

def a nice looking cooling plate
He's actually looking into the design for his DC2, I'll ask him to look into making one for the BB6 as well.

Edit: he just told me, "they're easy to make, I can make them all day long it'll just take time to cure."

Hey Shaun, you need to make some CF parts that will actually make the preludepig lighter and some bling doesn't hurt :p.

I am down for:
1) passenger airbag tray (I am looking to get rid of mine)
2) radiator cooling plate
3) spark plug cover
4) door panels

etc.

No shipping and big discount for me right ;).

how much cheaper are these parts going to be? (give some scenarios such as hoods, trunks, etc. and also price of carbon fiber vs. carbon kevlar parts)

and if the price is reasonable, id be the first to sport a mugen replica carbon fiber wing..maybe with a 3rd brake light option..thats my million-dollar idea.

maybe a cf muffler too?
