Carbon Fiber wrapped GPR glove box lid
Finished my 2nd lid; first one had enough flaws in it that I trashed it. This one did pretty well, but I did end up with a couple of minor flaws in the finishing process (if you get close to it and look, you can see some very faint scratches in the surface from the sanding; can't see it if you are more than a foot away and not looking for them). Future ones will be a bit better quality, but this one is more than good enough to put on a ski.
For this one, I'm asking $50 plus your core lid, shipped. Future ones will probably be a bit higher, I need to look at my costs; CF cloth and the epoxy is not cheap. Lid will come with new hinge pins, as these are usually broken when you take it off. I'll have the pins in hopefully by the end of the week, so I should be able to ship by Monday at the latest. Once you install it and are happy with it, send me your core lid and payment.
For anyone else that is interested, I'll have another one ready soon after I get the core back. And once the cold weather is here and you don't be riding, I can do yours that you send to me; there are many different color options available. Blue, orange, silver, gold, red, even some holographic cloth is available. PM me if you have any questions.

Can we see a pic of how the back is finished? BTW VERY NICE!!!!!!! When are you going to wrap a grab handle?

The back isn't wrapped, it stops about 1/2" from the sides on the back. I'm putting a new foam piece on, figured out with the first one that it was easier to pull the old one off so I could tape down the CF.
Grab handle is a diff issue; the epoxy doesn't stick to the plastic well. I'm gonna try out an idea later this week. Trust me, when I do a grab handle, I'll be posting pics

Can the visor be done? What about the fairings? It would be cool to have a full set of CF fairings on a black hull..

isnt there any imitation carbon fiber? Real carbon fiber is isnt really 'necessary'.
how much do you want to do a full set? I have the stuff. LMK

I don't know how much I'd charge yet. I doubt I'm really gonna be able to do this for a real profit; supplies are expensive, and for the work I'll put into it I'll probably make much less than I would just working extra hours in my job field.
I'll post pics soon of some finished hoods, and I'll probably start on some fairings in the next couple of weeks.
