It does look great but I don't think its real CF.

I cannot image what Jersey charged you for all that.

Thanks....I appreciate that! Price depends on what specific pieces you want. I got the seat backs, the side bolsters, the air bag covers and the seat belt guides.

Remember, many of these pieces are Carbon Fiber overlays. So real Carbon Fiber is adhered to OEM pieces and sealed in a matte finish or a gloss finish. This is a matte finish. GM does the same thing!

Wrong...this is real Carbon Fiber. See explanation above.

Are all of the plastic pieces in your car now covered in carbon fiber? Looks great!

Correct! I've tried to eliminate all plastic inside (especially the horn pad done in leather....it makes a huge difference). Plus, everything on the outside that was done in black metallic (Carbon Flash) is now done in Carbon Fiber.

You sure do love your carbon fiber - nice job! May I ask what is the C7 emblem behind the seats? That looks really nice too - care to share a photo of it?

Thanks Mayor! That is one of the crossed flags that go on the nose or rear end of the car. I got the idea from the convertibles. They have the crossed flags above the Waterfalls. I thought, "Why not do the same thing for the Coupes". So I just purchased one from my Hendrick dealership, pealed off the double-sided tape and done!

I'm on the radio today, so I'll post a better picture when I get home.

I can do that! She is back in storage for the Winter. As soon as I get her out during some warmer weather, I'll make a video!
