Carbon fibre interior

Guys, I did try the search function but couldn't find the answers I need. Essentially, looking to 'carbonize' the interior and wondering if it would be easy to mix and match items from different suppliers. Checked out Ma Carbon and DB Carbon and I like some items from both.

Can I get your thoughts?

Also, not sure if this is against the forum rules but if you can suggest any other supplier which you've sampled first hand, that would be appreciated. Just PM me!


Cheers,

Dg

Look into hydro-graphic dipping, I'm getting some interior bits done. I'll post pics when I get them back in a few weeks.

Reasearch a guy named Marcus on Rennlist. Great stuff.

Here's an old price list (in German) and contact info:

+1 with Juicepro. If you just want the look, check out the hydrographics process. You could do most of your interior for the price of one small truc carbon fiber piece.

Thanks for your replies! The hydrographics is an intriguing cheaper alternative although 2 things stopping me from doing that:

- the car is in Manila so I would need to dismantle and ship the parts to the US
- there are no hydrographic shops in Manila (as far as I know)

Also, I'm leaning towards true CFs.

Contacted Marcus already. Will wait for a reply.

The McCarbon guy is a Porsche guy just like us and what I can see his stuff is high quality.
