Making it is a very involved process which includes a hyperbarric oven, not something done at home. The raw materials are not readily available to the retail market.

It would be fun though. Remake the unibody of the celi & all the body panels. smile

Nope. I learned about it watching the making of the McLaren F1 which is a complete carbon fibre unibody. Even the rear suspension bolts directly to the motor. Awesome technology.

That's cosmetic carbon fibre, has about the same strength as fibre glass.

Cosmetic carbon fibre thumbsdown it's just as brittle as Fiberglass too, cracks real well
