    My goal is to not copy but be similar to the c6 w/ the carbon fiber center bezel like in this pic.

    I tossed around the idea of using a tablet for a screen. So when I found out I was going a week with out my factory radio I decided to make a lil something. I had every thing I needed just laying around except the radio bezel so I decided to make this.

    It's not perfect cuz I really just threw it together but it looks pretty cool. I also Just placed my a/c vents so it doesn't look so torn apart. Plus using a balancer app it's only .5* off, not to bad for a weekend project I did mostly drunk.

    I have to say I've never been impressed by pics I've seen of hydrodipped CF pattern, so I'm curious to see how yours looks when the parts are done.

    The guy doing the work showed me a finished product in his f150 and it looked amazing. He also has a semi tinted clear coat that makes it not so shiny. I'm not sure if I'm gonna get the regular clear or the tinted one. I kinda think the shiny look would be a better contrast.

    What have you seen that you didn't like? I'm not expecting 100% perfection but I am expecting about 95%.

    ^^^ What he said. All I can see in that tiny picture is a black piece of some car's interior. If there's a pattern on it, I can't see it.

    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'm waiting for the shop to send me some pics. I chose the darkest pattern cuz I am worried about it being to flashy.

    This might be a better pic. But I'm just pulling these off google.
