    As for what I didn't like of the ones I've seen, it just looked very flat and one-dimensional. CF, since it's a weave, has some depth to it. Hard to describe, I guess, but the hydro-dipped CF patterns I've seen just didn't look real at all.
    I know what you mean about the depth, real carbon fiber has a very unique look. I'm not trying to fool people into thinking I have real CF. I'm just trying to make my interior not so boring.

    Here's some cts door bezels like I'm getting done.

    I'm having to resize the pics in order to post them and a lot of the look is lost.

    You should be able to attach up to 1024x768 and nearly 400kb in size. The picture of the door bezels is only 171x124 and only 22kb.

    Everything is taking longer than expected. It was supposed to be finished last Friday...but it's not. I'm trying not to get frustrated about how long its taking cause I understand its a difficult job.

    There was some drips in the clear around the really sharp edges so they had to start over on a couple of pieces.

    I don't wanna name the shop until all the work has been finished. Plus I won't blame the shop for taking a lil longer than expected. I told them quality is more important to me than turnaround time.

    ........

    Wtf I can't get any pics to upload on this site. I'm No computer expert but this is ****ing Ridiculous. If anybody with a Mac can help me out ill get some pics posted.

    I'm 24 on a 24inch screen and I can barely see what the hell is going on in these 2 inch photos so I wonder what the older crowd is thinking. Please put us out of our misery and upload some real pics

    Hahaha... It must be my tiny brain that can't figure this out. But I'd rather stick my dick in a rat trap than have to use a pc.

    How effing hard is it to use Photobucket? Doesn't matter whether you're on a Mac or a PC.

    I'm sure it's not that hard I just haven't done it yet. I'm a full time student (5 classes a semester and 2 classes during the summer) and I work 50+hrs a week. by the end of the day/week I'm totally brain dead. Do I just upload the pics to photobucket and then link it in my replies.

    Sry if this seems like a stupid question but I'm no computer wiz.

    ------------

    I just installed the photobucket App so hopefully that will work...

    Here's a piece that's being redone cause of the little drips around the edges.
