A project I had started on awhile back and never got around to...dry carbon fiber spark plug galley cover.

FYI, dry carbon fiber is different than wet carbon fiber in that much of the epoxy has been evacuated under vacuum. Minus the epoxy, it's lighter, stronger and not as prone to heat.

Anyway, I cut the cf to shape, pressure fit into the galley with edge guard...

Not sure how it will hold up directly on the engine over the long haul. It's made the same as my cooling panel which has held up for years now. Here's some shots in the daylight...

Reading the header I was thinking ‘I don’t think it’s gna look good’

but you know what…I dig it. I used to have access to pre-preg and vacuum bagging/kiln facilities at work, but no longer, but I do have edge guard (perks of working in the aviation industry). I do have a sheet of 2024, could whip up a brush look plate.
