Hey guys and gals,

I went back to the drawing board and came up with a new design, using new materials.

Three layers carbon fiber (3K mesh + uni-directional cf) dry-laminated into form with Exp UV resistant epoxy.

The center holes have been reduced in size and cut with water jet. Side holes omitted.

The plate mounts flat and firmly into place with aviation grade rubber U-channel edge guard.





$160 USD shipped (with tracking)

Please contact me if interested :mm_emthup:cool:

I was told by the watter-jetter that CF does not cut well. He was wrong! Looks GREAT!!!!!
That CF panel is WAY expensive! I think that you are not charging enough $$$ for them,Greg.
I just bought a 12'X12" 3 mm with birch inside and it was $60 US!!!!

I needed to make a body mount for my 1/8th scale R/C truck.

Maybe the VW bug body will self-marshal when I crash.
It has a double deck of 3 mm CF plate.I should have used 4 mm.

I was actually quite surprised with the results myself. I suppose it would chip and crack if there was any epoxy left behind, but since the resin was evacuated, only what remains is there to bond the fibers and becomes strengthened. They would not use this process in normal manufacturing runs since it is way too expensive. That said, I have too much coin invested in the manufacture to just sit on it. At least I made enough at one time to bring the cost down and the difference in the dollar makes it cost-worthy. :salute:

It's not about the product, it's the process. I wanted to develop a super lightweight, ultra durable plate and that is what this is. It has been tested under extreme heat and pressure, no change. I wanted to test the product on waterjet, it passed. In future, I'd like to make a set of cf louvers using the same idea.

I agree, the panel is awesome... I wouldn`t drive without it! :mm_emthup:cool:
I cannot work on my car without one!!!!! NO WAY!
A level spot to set your adult beverages and a great place for your tools. The fenders are too slippery!
ALL of the MK II people need one or 2.
Mine is alloy and I traced for the water jet guys on a large hunk of cardboard.
Other wise,I would have bought yours.

I just saw another forum member that needs one.
Look at all of the turbo conversions and the way that they have the tools all spread out over the engine and "fender covers".
Manvir :salute:does NOT have one,yet. Really?
