    Carbon Fibre Mirrors

    I shall shortly be making myself a pair of carbon fibre door mirrors. in homage to the riot of Carbon fibre on the Audi/Lambo Superleggera i am considering making these available for sale on the site, i think they will be a good alternative to the silver plastic ones i bought off Ebay (poor quality) they will withstand impact a lot better as well, they will probably take me a day to make one pair, is anyone interested, i shall have the prototypes photo's in about a week's time let me know i am also considering making carbon fibre interior trim as well if this takes off.
    Let me know Cheers

    Yes I would defiantly be interested depending on prices if you have pictures of some of your work and price list would be useful.
    Would you do a Carbon Fibre strut brace?

    Price

    I shall start off with the mirrors as i have an old pair lying about to experiment on, dont think it will be to hard to do a strut brace, i have some door cards from brzan4 that he left in my garage i shall see if i can use these as moulds for the carbon interior trim (nice one brzan4) i'm thinking a good price for the mirrors will be 75 a pair compared to the 55 i paid for the poor quality silver S copies off Ebay ! They will take me about 1.5 -2 days to do one pair.

    You can have a choice of the raw F1 carbon look or the highly laquered look the choice is your's, looks like i've started something here, the first set of mirrors will be ready next week i have one set of spare covers to start off with if anyone has any mirror covers available so that i can build some stock up i would be very grateful and of course you will get a discount, the mirrors will have to be on an exchange basis i send the carbon ones out you send back two covers they can be cracked or scratched as long as they dont have any holes they can be repaired and reinforced with carbon fibre, recycling at it's best !

    No problem to do that i'll start off with overlaying the mirrors as it will make them stronger than standard equipment as the idea to do this came to me when i had a drive by mirror smash, i wondered if carbon fibre would have withstood the impact plus it looks good as well, i will make some moulds over the next few weeks of other items.

    The mirrors will take 1.5 to two days to do a pair, i think a good price will be 75 compared to the Ebay shinies at 55 mass produced, these are hand finished.
