    They are functional. They hide the guts behind the dashboard.

    I tend to agree, but these are works of art. Everyone that has a set says it truly transforms their interior.

    Quality work; I will be replacing the black crud - whatever it's called. Just a matter of when at this point.

    Email me at matt@ocarbon.com if you've got any questions.

    Here are some CTS-V door handles we did. These seem so simple, but were incredibly difficult.

    The shift knob is sweet. How much for just that piece?

    We weren't planning on doing the shift knob as its too complicated and expensive to do on its own. If you guys want to pay $200 for just the shift knob, we can offer it.

    I would love this, and would be willing to pay for the quality work, but like most people I want to buy it straight from your website and have it delivered to my home for installation. I am not looking to disassemble my CTS-V and wait for the finished product. If you can ever figure out a way to do that cheaply (custom molds?) I'm sure you will get a lot more business.

    You wouldn't have to disassemble your vehicle to get a set from us. We can provide a core set of trim for you, it's just expensive. Total cost when buying a second core trim is $1450.

    Unfortunately, interior trim pieces aren't really suited to be molded, for a few reasons. The quality of the fit would go down (a lot of Chinese companies make molded interior trim "shells" for other makes and models and they never fit good). The price would actually go up for the short term because the molds would have to be paid for (they have a high break even point) and there is generally more work required on molded parts. The most important reason why we don't mold interior pieces is because they wouldn't look as good. Wet laying them allows for a perfectly straight weave, easy application of custom fabrics, and a deeper, glossier end product.

    I know you can get some of the parts (for a price) but I would love to have the complete set without having to take apart my stereo. I'm not trying to give you a hard time, I'm just trying to spit ball some possible ideas to make this easier. And like you said, Chinese copies will not fit as well, but for something like the stereo trim does it necessarily have to be super snug? I mean its not a moving part. How bad could it be? I appreciate your work, and would love to use your expertise someday, but as it is now I don't see myself making that kind of commitment (money-wise or time-wise of having my car in shambles.). Thank you. I'll follow your progress to see if I ever need to give you a call and order a set.
