Default Custom Insert for Cab/ Carbon Fiber

I was wondering if anyone knew of where i could get custom inserts for the cab.

I'm looking to either replace or paint the Ugly wood interior inserts around the stereo and door panels and replace it with a Carbon Fiber Looking insert.

I do not care about real carbon fiber seeing at the weight reduction isn't important to me. But Painted to look like carbon Fiber.

I was also wonder how i would go about taking these parts off in the dash/door. Probably just clips but just wondering if anyone has done it thanks.

And if anyone does this type of painting let me know, and i may be willing to ship it to get that work done

Thanks

Parts painted to look like carbon fiber really don't even come close to looking like the real thing when you look at them twice. You would probably be happier with some kind of painted plastic that isn't supposed to look like CF. Or if you really wanted to be baller, get real carbon fiber.

Those are nice! Another option would be the Carbon Fiber vinyl wrap. You could cover each piece with it and then put them back on.

Actually, I believe they are pressed in and then the tabs are heated and compressed. Would have to cut the tabs on the back of the panels to get them off.

Yup! Only thing is it wouldn't have that "transparent" look to it like real carbon fiber.

For Dash or Door??? (guessing door)

So if you cut the tabs how would you be able to put it back on?? Glue or something in that nature??
