Who does real carbon fibre?

I have a customer that has some panels that need to be covered in real 'wet' carbon fibre. Does anybody know who does that? Vinyl CF will not be sufficient!

The Items are pretty large.
Its one thing to buy CF and do it yourself but because there are so many angles and curves I would rather somebody with a lot of experience do it so I don't mess it up.

Thanks for the recommendation though!

When you say wrap, you mean bring them a part, and they wrap a layer of CF onto it?

Anybody got an idea about the pricing?

Yes,that's what I saw.

I don't know if they still do it,it was a few years ago when I saw it being done,but I know it won't be cheap.

I used to do plenty of carbon work for custom instals. It's time consuming and can get real expensive but maybe I can help you guys

Yeah, I have done a few pieces here and there but I have no time for it! I could try to tackle it but my 55-60 hours a week at work would turn into 70-80 hours. Not really into that! Thanks for the suggestion!

Here's what I had on my mind.

Part 1
http://www.af1racing.com/store/Scrip...dCategory=1458

Part 1, 2 and 4
http://www.af1racing.com/store/Scrip...dCategory=1461


Here's a photo for reference:
http://www.dejoamsterdam.nl/web/uplo...0R%20_2699.jpg
The grey center tunnel is 3 pieces, and the white cap in front with the "SR" sticker.

They are currently in plastic. Would be looking for a carbon fiber replacement.
My bro can do it, but he's kinda busy.

I can do a carbon overlay. That would be the cheapest. I would need to see the pieces in hand tho to get a better grasp on the contours. I could also do Kevlar.
If an overlay isn't what you're after and you want a mold made then I can make pure carbon pieces but that would be real pricey.
