Carbon fibre replacements

Question

Hi guys a question to all of you.. 

 

I work in composites at work and started a few little projects in my spare time.. Replacement carbon covers or complete replacements. 

 

Question is would their be alot of interest or any particular bits youd like made? 

Can do one offs or maybe group buys if can set up a good workspace at home.. 

 

Let me know any ideas and thoughts ☺

Engine covers for the Gen7 190 would certainly get my attention (and probably a few others  too) these used to be available but from what I've seen that was back when the Gen 7 was still being produced.

Do you have any pictures of what covers? You meaning the cam cover or the plastic covers?

Front wings would be cool! Also I'm sure it'd go down well if you could come up with a new design of CF bonnet

The shiny black bits in Daytona's engine bay :)

 

If you think you could do this and need some to make molds or what have you then I can sort some out for you.

Cheers freeman, yeah covers like that should be quite easy to produce.. If you have spare covers im sure can sort something out to make moulds from.. I am also looking into pigment colours so can make different colours of carbon fibre . (red, blue, yellow even purple) these are all things that will take some experamenting.. Haha...

Will PM you for address.
