Work over the past few months have taken a toll on my sleep patterns, so when not sleeping I decided to get into the carbon game.

I have never done anything like this before and it has been an expensive learning curve.

I started off with skinning or wrapping some trim panels, and completely ruined my "ashtray" and surrounding areas.

Moved into making rear door panel deletes, Needless to say wow this is a process.

Let me know thoughts, I'm really starting to get into this and enjoy the process.

All are prototypes and first attempts, excuse the mess in some photos, I am a lets get this done type of guy and this whole process is nasty to take photos.

Not bad! I considered getting into it as well since I have 4 3D printers I can make molds pretty easy.
How much money would you say you have invested so far?
In product alone?
I know to get to the door panels, to where they are, roughly $700, It wouldn't cost that now to reproduce.

Looking for interest in purchasing having parts made for door cards here in the US.
I have a few local people who I know will let me make templates of their door cards and start producing.
