That was a pointless post francogt1.

Anywho, do you have pictures as an example from another car at all? Just trying to think what it would look like.

Why make just a cover.
Just make the UIM CF like the Feed and Kiwi Re one

I personally want some proper gauge pods made for the drivers and passenger door air vents.

It would be for those with front mount set ups. Exact contour of the uim. It would slip over top of it possibly using the intercooler mounting points.


Oh and franco's respons was because he is trying to sell his car on ebay......i was messing with him yesterday.

Can you use regular boat resin with carbon fiber, or does it have to be super clear with different properties?

the undertray I really want, the trunk lid- eh, probably too much of a limited market for them to bother.

It would be lighter maybe... But sheet metal really isn't going to weigh much at all either.

I'll take metal. But Aluminium is not going to be as cheap as stainless steel sheet metal, I'm going make my own I think... Unless a professional wants to do it and sell it to me?

All this interest in an aluminum undertray makes me want to finish the half-done one in my garage. I'll add it to the list of projects.

Suhweeeet! Nobody makes an undertray. Lots of interest but just no one to power through. You got me as a buyer!

Carbon Fiber would be awesome, I would be in for that. Also someone needs to make an S4 lip!

Yes I am aware of that lip, and it's one of the very few available for an s4 bumper. We need variety
