Garage
I have seen some pics some time ago with c.f. on the silver parts of the console running up along the stereo. I for the life of me cannot remember who did it, but it didn't look bad at all.

I stumbled across your post looking to see if anyone had this. I think I would prefer the Marble burl

You know I tried promoting that here, and it did not work out. To each his own, but it could be the way of the future. The Blue Devil Vette should be sporting some, and this is a sign of the times. The Corvette also sported fuel injection long before many of the average cars did. I think with future fuel standards being set, Carbon fiber is a very realistic solution to maintaning the 35mpg by 2020? standard set by GM. Every pound of weight is an issue in my opinion. Unfortunately carbon fiber is far from cost effective to manufacture, but regardless of cost it could become a nesecity in the performance industry with all these god dang tree huggers.

carbon fiber

To me the carbon fiber look has been played out and is getting tired and stale, but that is only my opinon. If you want it, try P.F.Y.C PARTSFORYOURCAR.com or EBAY

447 CI forged stroker [ 7.3 liter ] 6 Bolt main caps
Holley Modular Mid rise Intake Manifold.
F1 Procharger ,

Just way too much to list,

Personally, I'd like to replace all the aluminum painted plastic parts with real brushed aluminum.
