Now you see, I just couldn't imagine how tough it would be to put my C7 in storage over the winter. Living in the southeast there are days we can still take a little ride. Hopefully the KC weather will give you a couple breaks before you need therapy.

WOW, Steven those seat backs look great, that's a lot of C/F. How long did it take Apsis from start to finish.

Really a work of art. I get so **** about scratches that I'm afraid I could never do that to my interior, especially the hatch area, but this is beautiful. So with all this work and $ invested, I'm guessing you're going to keep this baby for a while?

Yep, I agree. I would have to say I've never seen that much carbon fiber in any C7 either. I really like the fact that you went with the matte rather than the shiny look. Fingerprints would drive me crazy. I would also like to know how much this cost you?

Not very long....it took about a month or so to get them done.

Oh yea--this car is not going anywhere anything soon......

I try not to sweat the small details about scratches. But I am careful!

I went with the matte finish because I started this Carbon Fiber journey with the dash, which is a matte finish. Everything emanated from that. Also, there are many, many other Carbon Fiber pieces available. I don't want to "junk" up the car. My goal was to go for aggressive but classy!

Love it, Steve! You should talk about this on the radio!

Here's two 'radio' songs to play if you're into soul music....


and, my favorite by Toni Braxton...."heard it on the radio last night" lyric

It is true carbon fiber? What kinda cost on the shown pieces? Please share...

Looks nice but not like true carbon fiber you'd see in like a Lambo but still looks good for a vette.
