Thumbs up Carbon Fiber Console Armrest Cover Installed

Just installed the Carbon Fiber Cover I won from The Carbon Fiber Specialist here on the forum.

Easy install and the piece looks AWESOME!

Here is the DIY link to show how easy it was. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...93057:thumbup:

Can't wait to see what else these guys produce to improve the look of our Camaros

10 yr old daughter got in the Camaro today and the first thing she said was, "Daddy, you got a new carbon fiber arm rest, COOL!" "It's like you get a new car every week."

The second line is something she always hears the wife say

I think it would look even better with your interior in IOM carbon fiber or maybe a candy paint over the top?????? Coolness either way!!!!

Yes, more IOM would be

Not sure how they would do that, maybe base paint part before laying down CF.

Just curious, was the factory arm rest black as well? I want the black/orange interior like you have and love the carbon fiber but I wouldn't want to swap it out if it was orange. Thanks and it looks really cool.

Stock arm rest was black leather like substance with orange stitching, ordered IOM interior upgrade with the car.

Arm rest now resides in storage in the top of my garage.

They are on the approved vendor list here on the website.

Go to marketplace vendor sales for interior mods thread and a link should come up on top of page.

I don't think their website is up and running yet, but you can contact them by email or phone.

Email: Thecarbonfiberspecialists@yahoo.com Telephone: (956) 524-7894

I won it, so no idea of cost.

I want more CF inside, so I'm saving up my bubble gum money to get something else.

Got the CF going on the exterior already!

Still loving my CF arm rest.

No need for padding, 9 & 3 ya know!

The few times I am resting on it, I don't even notice the difference.


Where do I check????? Your website doesn't seem to be up! Don't be a tease!

Light weight coolness! Personal choice, something different. Style for your car.

Could ask the same question about V6's, why bother?

My grandma had a Camaro with a V6.

Grandma taught me the Golden rule & to keep my negative thoughts to myself.........sorry grandma! :(

Post negativity...............Get negativity.

Post on public boards and ask opinions.. you'll get opinions.

Weight??? Most all CF hoods are heavier than stock. That console cover is probably heavier too.

If your not into honest opinions try a different country.

Here you'll be riding down main street on a horse with no clothes on.

Funny, I don't remember asking for an opinion in my OP, just showing what I had done to my car.

CF hood saved 2 lbs + better ventilation and trunk saved 7lbs. Console may have been .25-.5lb lighter than the leather one I replaced.

But your right, it's a free forum & country.

What's the saying, opinions are like something...............everyone's got one.

Thanks for sharing yours!
