anyone know good place for carbon fiber parts?
i have tried oppracing but they dont have the kind of tail i want for my f4i.. i wish to have a tail that will retain my trunk space / passenger seat... or atleast a way to access my tiny trunk space hehe.
Even though i normally hate ppl that get those sticker , or overlay that "look" like carbon fiber, ive look into those too. unfortunently i cant seem to find one thats any where decent.

if anyone got any info let me know ^^ thanks

It depends on how soon you want it.... and how many other people want it.

if youre not in a rush, and many others would be interested. we might be able to help you out.


otherwise.....im not really sure. i was having the same dilema last year, when i decided i wanted a full fiber bike! opp has pretty good looking stuff. bad selection and expensive tho. (not that carbon fiber is ever cheap)

you wanna know why c/f is so expensive?

i guess they are having troubles making it alot of these italian cars like ferrari and other high end cars are full c/f bodies as well as there is a short supply of the actual carbon needed for the matting

but if you just want a fiberglass tail thats easy to make.

I've been hording the last of my c/f mat for a good year now waiting for the right thing to make out of it

at this point i am really gonna look for the carbon looks... too hard to find the actual c/f piece. Might try that overlay thing, or if there are other options let me know :)

hey i can help you with an idea what you need to do is tin foil your tail*take it off first* then get some fiberglass mat and resin/hardner cut chunks of the mat and soak it in the resin and apply to the underside of your tail then you get a large plastic bag with enough room so you can attach a shop vac to the end get a zip tie tie the shit out of the open side of the bag to the shop vav *make sure you have the flow revearsed and this should apply a vacuum seal and force the wet fiberglass mat in every hole curve let sit in a warm area for 3-8 hours depending on the heat to speed up the process get a heat lamp place 2-3 feet away *since the resin can be flamable* then when you are all done you should have your layout and just apply more layers as you see fit and get a wire brush wheel for you drill and all the plastic bag/tin foil should come off.

ive been using this trick for over a year now for my car but i will tell you what ive found out is fiberglass doesnt stick to abs plastic only bare metal or other fiberglass

I tried the link to google that you posted above for the vid.

Just a note (Sorry to steal the thread) China allowed google to operate here but they restricted them. Maybe you read this in the papers.

So as a result any vids on google I cannot download. Frigin police state! Fuck google they are sell outs! "Oh we will never let anyone tell us what to do." Yea right! anyone except the 1.5 billion customer based Chinese.....Cock suckers!

Anyone got a way around this let me kow I want to do some of my own carbon work as well. I can get the factory to do it but fuck that I want to personalize my fighter.

thanks for any help.

P.S. Makes it a real bitch to download porn as well...."Why thats just un American!" ha ha

Well the most obvious work around would be to have someone send the movies specifically. But if you can download .torrent files, I can do you one better... :evilred:

http://www.torrentspy.com/torrent/727081/Motorcycle_Mania_3

Download this to your desktop

http://www.utorrent.com/

Install this program (utorrent)

Then double click the file you just downloaded. It'll start up a dialog in utorrent that'll slowly download the file for you. The more of it you have, the faster it'll go. So just be patient.

That'll get you movies in general as utorrent runs encrypted transfers, meaning they cannot be blocked. Let me know if you need help.
