    I've just seen them around ebay and what not. Check MMRUSA.com, they might have something that you could use.

    Are you aware of the extensive work that has to be done to do carbonfiber? Its worth just paying someone else.

    yeah my buddy has a C-fiber covering his entire stereo.

    1.you build a mold (in this case you could get tha fiberglass dash and cover that, cause it would have less creases)

    2.lay the fiber

    3.resin

    Um, no. You have to have a special adhesive and a thick plastic molding bag. Then you have to have the suction equipment to suck the molding bag to the material. Its a long process to get CF to have the show quality finish. I do fiberglass weekly. I was going to get into CF production but the materials cost was too high.

    you may be right

    i know they mass produce stuff like that, especially seats and mirrors and stuff like that, but if you check out companies like C-West, all their fiber is hand laid

    all i know is my buddy has about 100 pics of the process and all the guy did was lay it over the mold make sure its clipped tight and resin it. but then again an amp rack doenst have as many curves as a dashboard
