CARBON FIBER.....check it out!!

Hey guys check this out!I've known my friend from "TeamPrototype.com/CF-type.com" for a while and they specializes in custom carbon fiber wrapping. They can wrap or make any parts for any car with Carbon Fiber. It's pretty sick. Here are some pics of the Mercedez they worked on. They made carbon fiber body kit and hood for it, they will soon be making the trunk. If you guys have any questions, let me know.

RE: CARBON FIBER.....check it out!!

Our facility can make your product in 2 ways. The 1st alternative would be mold/product making and the second would be carbon fiber overlay.

If you decide for us to make a mold, the process is time consuming and costly. To make the mold for your trunk, the R&D and mold making will run about $3000. After they make the mold, each unit will run $600 each. The ETA on this project will be about 2 months and we will need you to pay for the mold up front. Payment for the mold is non-refundable.

Wrapping parts in carbon fiber is more cost effective. You get the same look and same feel with a wrapped part. The biggest advantage of getting parts wrapped is the fitment issue, as long as your parts fit when you dismantled them from the vehicle, 99% of the time they should fit upon re-install. If you decide that wrapping in CF is what you want, you can either send them the part(s) that need wrapping or they can source you that same part(s) locally at the wreckage yards.

They can wrap your trunk for $600

RE: CARBON FIBER.....check it out!!

for producing kits
#1 they need the car at their facility for 3-4 months for prototyping
#2 to prototype a kit it will run $5000
#3 $3000 to make the molds
#4 $1200-$2000 to make each kit in CF

this all basically applies to anything you want made
