Read the post that is for real Carbon Fiber not what you see here.

Even $620 for 2 door inserts is pricey! Shoot full CF hoods don't even cost $1500... You can find hoods with reverse cowl scoops for the price of your 2 small door panel inserts!(620)
Please reread the post they are not $1500, that is for real carbon fiber this is for Hydro dipped Carbon and this kit all interior will be about $550 if you want real carbon it will be much more. You get what you pay for

Could you edit your original post and put ballpark estimate prices of what the individual pieces will run? Maybe with a disclaimer saying they are subject to change

Like others have posted, I'd be very interested in a set of door panels that work with the existing ambient lighting. They look very nice, and I'd also suggest maybe making some carbon fiber bowtie replacements for the front and rear of the car as well

$1500 for that much CF is actually not that bad...

Other industries you will be paying closer to $2000

I can't wait to see these installed on the car - I think they'll look really good.

There's no reason to have real carbon fiber for these pieces, really - it's not like you'll utilize the weight savings or strength compared to the plastic. I guess going real CF is only for bragging rights...

that CF hydro is one of the best Ive seen. And for those who dont know,1500 for all the pieces would be a steal. Especially considering they'd my made from CF, and not overlayed. Hell for the amount of work required in a quality overlay 1500 wouldn't be asking too much. So 1500 for CF pieces is a great deal! Keep em coming...

Fesler can you guys do 4th gen parts in CF?

What is it about the ABL that makes an insert so difficult to produce that allows ABL to work?

Nice stuff.

I can answer this for the OP...

GM made this part out of plastic. They painted the inside of the clear plastic and left a ballpoint pin width unpainted. This makes it very hard to work with.

For example - Painted items are difficult since you have to paint on top of smooth plastic or you have to remove the inner paint.

When you cover it with paint, real and/or hydro carbon fiber it goes over this (unpainted ballpoint pin area) which you can not reproduce.

There are some possible solutions but will take a while to develop.
