Cost, an arm and a leg I would imagine, they look like complete carbon, even the overlay ones are expensive. The 3rd one looks overlay, might be wrong.

Well, not as expensive as you'd think!
A couple of days on and off between Christmas duties, a scalpel, hairdryer and a sheet of carbon wrap.... Job done :thumbsup:

These lads do carbon bits, more about cosmetics than weight saving I think but certainly looks purdy.

Robson Design Pte Ltd

Somewhere or other they do bits for R32, 33, 34 too.

Nope... Just stripped the bits down and washed to remove an finger marks etc, then got wrapping! :).

Not a perfect job but you get the hang of it pretty quickly as to how much stretch and what cuts to make so that it all looks as good as can be. Bits in the switch recesses I used smaller pieces and lined up the weave pattern to try and keep it all lookiing like one piece.

I thought about carbon wrapping but I'm not to confident about the end result lol! The other option is perhaps to spray it, but I don't want to damage the dash on removal!

I got a sheet 1500x1000mm for just over £50.00 delivered for the Apa carbon film through a friend and I've still got just over half left.

Prices seem to vary wildly though the guy on here with the chromed R35 gave a good price as did a mate of mine if you have no luck elsewhere.

Cheers :)..
